    Big tailor NSW

    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

    Big tailor NSW

    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.

    Mangrove Jack at Berowra Waters?

    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

    tough cod bite

    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

    Peel river carp

    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

    catching the myth

    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

    Tamworth cod

    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

    Tamworth cod

    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 .

    Northen beaches pelagics from the rocks

    Like waza said, south whale is the go.The ovens can't be reached these days unless you know a homeowner on rayner drive and are a good rockclimber.That been said many a good northern bluefin,10kg kingy and even marlin were caught from both ledges back in the day.You just need to dedicate time to find what works best for each species you ate targeting. I haven't fished northern sydney ledges for over 12 year's now but a rising tide into evening always worked for me. Best of luck mate all comes down to time on the rocks. Let us know how you get on. Cheers Scotty

    Hawkesbury fishing from the shoreline

    If you try during daylight you will see what your bait does as the tide goes out.There is a deep channel next to the rock wall ,follow your bait as it goes down the wall if you don't get a hit repeat the process. Good luck Scotty

    Hawkesbury fishing from the shoreline

    Hey mate,try the south easten rockwall near the roadbrige at bobbin head at night on the last 2 hours of the run out tide.use the freshest mullet strips or garfish fillets cast out with 6lb line and a tiny split shot and you will be in luck.This has worked for me many times over, mind you that was 10 years ago but caught plenty of o/s bream,school jew,and even a big eye trevally from that spot. Let me know how you get on. Cheers Scotty
