  1. Done the night fishing fair bit with the kids its a big deal to them a real adventure. The pre made rigs and cut baits great idea. Float fishing unless you add a glow stick sort of defeats the object of a float being a visual aid but if it saves constant snagging it is an option. As Noelm said bream will be the big go we have most success with them, Tailor as well. Not much of a squid fisherman so not my area. The kids will love head torches but in my opinion a lantern is a must as well to light the general area for safety also pick a safe level area with minimum trip hazards make sure no hook
  2. I know a guy who swears by salmon heads as great Jewie baits, Have to be freshly caught though. He gets impressive results.
  3. Very cool indeed. Time to raid the young blokes lego. Sure a lot of people have tried some offbeat tactics. Cheese, Bacon rind, hot chips and a jelly baby have all caught for me. Hit the canals on the gold coast one night with BBQ chicken skin and scraps on light jigheads the bream went beserk.
  4. Thanks for the great tutorial. Squidding something i really struggle with ive practically put it in the too hard basket. After reading and watching im ready to go again.
  5. Awesome advice from Derek and Co ive done the electric motor side and rear mount on my Yak not worth the drama, time, cost and extra weight. Spend the $ on a better yak in my opinion. Good luck whatever way you go.
  6. I must be spoilt i get encouraged to buy gear .
  7. Well done mate, the bigger ones will come just keep persisting. Youll have your work cut out for you on the 2-4kg gear though not sure how big they get in Manly dam, where i fish ive tangled with them up to a metre long. Berley with the corn sporadically use the minimum weight sinker, the bite can be very subtle even from the biggest fish so be on your toes and never leave your rod unattended i learnt that lesson the hard way losing a brand new baitcast outfit to a hungry carp. Lately ive been using circle hooks i reckon there the go. Good luck on the big one.
  8. Great story Big Neil. Crows can be be quite determined saw one a few years ago in a rail yard locked in a long and ferocious battle with a massive rat the crow prevailed.
  9. Hi mate should have no trouble with the squid there in the harbour, even i can get them as a matter of fact its the only place i seem to be able to catch them. Have got the usual small pelagics and a few bream too. Good luck.
  10. Outstanding reports and well done all round love my western Sydney Bass fishing as well. The Taylor made are a great lure you have motivated me to dust of the head lamp and have a night time session. Thanks for sharing.
  11. 2 kilo Mowie under Windang bridge same day mate got a small Mangrove Jack. The Mowie went great on the light bream gear.
  12. Chartreuse a winning lure colour i find there. Mate Ive hooked carp up to metre long, there pretty much un-beatable on the light gear they run you into the bridge, also lost a brand new baitcast outfit i foolishly left unnattended. I use a six kilo outfit, light running sinker and quality no.6 circle hooks. Tin of sweet corn for bait throw a small handfull every half hour and thread some up the hook leaving barb exposed. Watch the rod carefully the bite is subtle when i detect the bite i lower rod when the line starts to take off I lift and set the hook and the fun begins. Enjoy and have fun
  13. Hey Jbrace. Fish that spot a lot when ive got a few hours to spare. Have hauled in some good bass and monster carp which are great fun on light gear. Its even better from a kayak. Seem to have most success on lipless crankbaits and at times have cast for over an hour before hooking up. As mentioned above watch for snakes had a close encounter with a red belly once. Good luck hope you get amongst them.
  14. Fresh water rinse and air out for 1 week for all terminal tackle (sinkers included) and lures. Also store used items seperate after fishing in small container until rinsed. Never had rust issue ever in my tackle box following this strict procedure. Keep a few silica gel packs in your kit as well.
  15. Hi mate Green Hornet is spot on tried it myself and also caught pan sized reds close to the rocks as well as the usual beach species.
