  1. 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.
  2. 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 .
  3. Double rainbow through the smoke haze in Tamworth today. Haven't seen one for a while, maybe it's a sign. Cheers Scotty
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Well done Dave,its requireing a lot more effot to get a cod to bite at the moment so you have done well to get those fish. It must have really deep throated the lure as cod fingers is usually not cod fist. Once again mate top effort in these trying times. Cheers Scotty
  15. If you want schoolies yowie windybanks on the old pacific hwy at mt colah had them 2 weeks ago. They were of the hawksbury variety and were bloody brilliant. Hope you get some mate.
  16. Cheers Neil, the cod have been of the bite big time. I've only fished once since the season started and only caught one small fish. Most other people who fish the peel have struggled too. With keepit been at 0.5% every ski boat in the north west has been going to chaffy dam so no reports from there either. Heading to Yamba next week so maybe able to have some luck there. Cheers Scotty
  17. To hot on Saturday (38 degrees ) to go walking the banks for cod. So decided to go chase carp at the river in town. Took a 6pack and a loaf of bread. Caught a few all on 6lb line which results in a very fun battle,fish in the photo had me going for about 5 minutes. Cheers Scotty
  18. I trode on one many years ago dragging for prawns at Elizabeth beach in budgewoi lake. I still have flash backs to this day about the pain . I spent a day i A@E and no matter what they gave me the pulsating pain would not go away. They are a nasty bit of gear. Cheers Scotty
  19. Hey mate box head and tallow beach if you like a bushwalk and no crowds. Rising tide always youse to work for me. Cheers Scotty
  20. Nice work mate,good looking healthy fish. Did you catch him up stream or down stream of the town.
  21. A couple of km's up from the reserve there is a series of rock bars and depending on tide height and how much rain the fresh will met some where there. Thats were the bull shark's live. Cheers Scotty
  22. Top report mate. Haveyou ever fished further up the creek past Crosslands? I yous to catch bass and a few bull shark's up there back in the day. Cheers Scotty
  23. Hey mate keepit is down to its lowest level in many years. Its so low you can see the original namoi river, the fish are still there but haven't heard any good reporys for a few weeks. Give it a go mate what can you lose. Chaffey dam has more water in it but the cod seem to shut down this time of year as the water has got cold realy quick,like i said before you probably have more chance in the peel river, you can access it straight below the dam wall and bush bash down stream. Cheers Scotty
  24. Surface lures like the savage ninja frog i use in first and last 2hrs of daylight and spinner bait during the day.
  25. Hey mate i live in Tamworth. Fishing for cod is going great around town at the moment. Any where upstream of the town to chaffey dam has good fish.Down stream to keepit is a reel struggle. Unfortunately you need permission by the local farmers to acsess the good water .
