  1. Mate your a champion. This is what makes fishraider so awesome. Thank you very much for your advice. I don't get to see many bream here in Tamworth but when the fires finally finish I might treat myself to a holiday chasing bream somewhere. Thanks again Cheers Scotty
  2. Hey mate. There are a lot of mud and sand flats up there but with some decent holes as well,all the way up past crosslands reserve . Probably a high tide only area in a small tinny. It's good for kayaking. I spent a lot of my younger days on that creek fishing. There was always bream,fatties and the occasional bull shark as well. It would fish real well right up the back past the reserve in times of drought as the salt pushed up over rock bar at high tide. It's a fun place to explore with very little fishing pressure considering it's still in suburban Sydney. I hope this helps mate. Cheers Scotty P/s between you,me and the gum trees there was a healthy supply of bass up there that would always turn it on on a steamy Sydney afternoon.
  3. Yeah Rick they all need it badly . What's left in all the holes are starting to turn septic. Looks like rain over the fires east of Walcha and nowendoc.
  4. No rain in Tamworth again Rick, the storms seem to split in two when they get about 20 km from town. Manila to the north had 10mm .
  5. Double rainbow through the smoke haze in Tamworth today. Haven't seen one for a while, maybe it's a sign. Cheers Scotty
  6. Thanks waza, like you said we don't want to hijack ricks awesome catch. Thanks for the support. Ive probably got 3hrs left on our break and were heading south to taree. Where only a bunch of farmers and mechanics with firehoses.
  7. Nice work rick . Snapper one day blackies the next. We had a trip planned this weekend to Charlotte head but old mother nature has stuffed once again so instead of fishing rods its firetrucks for us. Just having a breather near port racecourse. Hope everyone is staying safe, been a pretty crap 24 hours, but i still got fishraider. Cheers Scotty
  8. Hey BG things are going from bad to worse here in Tamworth. We only got 18mm of rain, just enough for the weeds to grow. We are now on level 5 water restrictions which is 150 l per person per day. The peel river has some flow up stream of Tamworth for drinking water but down stream has weed and alge startingto form due to no flow. There starting to talk about day zero, let's hope that doesn't come. I work in the agricultural industry so we are really feelingthe pinch now . Anyways enough of the bad stuff . I look forward to seeing everyone's post from the saltwater as this keeps me going and know a holiday is just round the corner. Cheers Scotty
  9. Nice work Dave . Good to see your reports on here again mate. Some nice winter trevs. You and your misses are quite the masters of the nammbucca.
  10. I was only a junior burger in the 80s, but i remember footy players were tough as nails and still worked as chippies or garbos during the week. I was tought to fish by my grandfather who would drag me down the rocks at south whale beach. I remember watching my grandfather land a 20kg Longtail after a 40 minute battle, no phones to take photos just awesome memories. Cheers Scotty
  11. Wow almost the start of the financial year and the longies are still about. Great photos, looks like the young fella needs to start doing a few push ups. Cheers Scotty
  12. Wow mate very jealous, except the bed bug bit. Great to hear the old bargain bin coming up with some awesome results , wonder why we spend our money on expensive brand name lures. Top stuff and awesome photos, whish my boss paied for a barra trip up north, hard to get a pen of him sometimes. Cheers Scotty
  13. I love this site so much , there is so much passion for fishing and helping each other out. Fishing for tailor or any other species has always been about having fun ,been outdoors and just enjoying the life. I don't need a prize to prove what size tailor i caught from some location, i know what i caught when i did simple as that. 99.99% of people on this site are awesome helpful people, let's not forget that. Cheers Scotty
  14. Back in the early nineties a very large specimen was caught of north entrance beach. I remember seeing the photo in a central coast news paper, not sure of the exact size but it was weighed over 11kg. North entrance beach has a history of some very large tailor and jewies over the last 4 decades.
  15. Mate back in the day ( 1990's) ive caught big eye trevally at bobbin head and know definitely of cobia caught at the ferry at berowra waters so i quese a mangrove jack that far up is not out of the question. It could have been a bass,how far up were you fishing. Maramara creek up near cannolands was a good spot for tarpon k isn't that far from berowra waters. Cheers Scotty
