  1. Hi Jon,

    I just tried to send you a message but it said you can’t receive messages? Are you able to send me a message and I’ll send you a response?



    1. JonD

      Hmm it’s still saying you can’t receive messages. Are you able to send me a message through the private messages and I can then reply?

      Didn't realise my messages were full, should be ok know.

  2. And what time of day was it? I fished the skillion this afternoon but it was dead.
  3. Little fisho what did you get the kings on? Live bait or lures?
  4. Shimano Coltsniper MH PE3 or H PE4 in either 9ft6 or 10ft paired with a daiwa BG 4500 with 30lb or 40lb braid. You should be able to pick this outfit up for a bit over $500.
  5. Daiwa AIRD 3000 Daiwa seabass 4-8kg 9ft6 I use this outfit for throwing 5 inch jerk shads for Bonnie’s during summer then squid during winter.
  6. The mangrove jack speared at terrigal last year (the one hanging on the light pole next to the boat ramp) was speared by my eldest son. He also speared a blue barred parrot fish last year at terrigal too. I have caught a small cobia in terrigal haven and speared a spangled emperor at Copacabana. Over the years I’ve also seen 2 other mangrove jack speared on the central coast. Ive caught Sampson fish and amberjack on the central coast too but I don’t think they would be considered unusual. Cheers, Phil
  7. Hi guys and girls, I am heading up to Iluka in 2 weeks to spend 3 full days fishing. I am planning on chasing mackerel and tuna from the breakwall during the day and Jews at night. Does anyone know if people have been catching tuna and Mack’s from the break wall recently? I have never fished for tuna or mackerel so I’m after some advice on what lures I should be throwing and what live bait can I catch from the wall? And what leader and wire should I be using? My plan is to spin with lures early and late in the day then use live bait when the sun is higher throughout the day. Also is there any particular spots I should be fishing along the wall? Or do I just head out to the point and try there? Any advice people can give me for fishing from the stones for mackerel and tuna in that part of the world will be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Phil
  8. Has anyone started catching any summer pelagics (kings, bonnies, etc) around Sydney or the Central Coast yet? I haven’t encountered any yet fishing the rocks at Terrigal and Avoca except for my son catching a small king earlier this week using a 5 inch jerk shad. I caught a few yakkas this week from the rocks so the bait appears to be turning back up. Surely they should start turning up any day now. I’m over catching winter salmon, snapper and trevally. Cheers, Phil
  9. I spun Avoca yesterday afternoon using metals and xraps. Got nothing. The water was filthy green. Same thing last weekend off the skillion. There was a fair amount of swell yesterday and it’s forecast to increase today so if you go off the rocks be really careful.
  10. Hi All, I am going to re-spool my Daiwa saltist 5000 with new braid. I’m tossing up between Tasline elite 50lb or WFT strong braid 22kg. Does anyone have any experience with these braids and if so which braid would you recommend? I do all my fishing from the rocks so I’m after a thin braid for maximum casting distance but also good abrasion resistance. Cheers, Phil
  11. Have you considered a Daiwa Seabass 11ft XH? These are a 10-20kg rod with a cast weight of 60-150g. They cost $230.
