    Requesting urgent Help - Sydney

    Im in a similar boat to you fishoman but Im trying to catch both a legal king & a legal jew out of the same areas so I will be watching with interest. Cant offer any advice other that be persistent & keep trying, that's me anyway. Although knowledge is a key factory when it comes to both these species a little luck goes a long way & what bait or artificials will work one day wont work the next & of course you have to find or happen upon them. Proof was in the pudding one day when my mate caught a legal jew on a tiny Hawkesbury prawn out of my tinny in the lower Georges one day. I guess that's why they call it fishing & not catching as someone says!

    FISHRAIDER TEES have arrived!! Get yours now

    Great idea but I am very hesitant to order cloths over the net without being able to try them on as there is always such a variance in sizing from country to country. Is there a sizing chart available with dimensions?? Also are the shirts Australian made & produced?? Id also prefer to stand by an Aussie site selling an 'Aussie made product'!

    Fish smoker - what to buy?

    A lot of the newer USA made/style BBQ's have the side smoking box & if I had the room for one its what I would get as it is multi functional. OP, what is 'a bit of money'?? can you give us a rough budget please. Also are you looking at pure wood burner or electric or propane assisted? How much space do you have for where its going, balcony or home/yard? Lots of makes & models around but you have to ask yourself these questions first imo before you can even get into the choices. Its the usual as we live on the outskirts of the world but a lot of the best stuff comes out of the USA & O/S its unfortunate that we find them hard to get here. Although the Bradleys have a good name Im not a fan of having to buy their own pellets as you are locked into having to use their product, I would rather just buy & soak whatever woodchip I decide to use. I also like a smoker that can be used either hot OR cold, as sometimes I like to make my own smoked ocean trout or salmon. Master built & Smoke hallow pro are also good brands, just trying to find them here is a major pain at times!

    Daiwa Gear

    I wouldn't know what their after sales & warranty is like because I have never had to use it! I love Diawa gear but like anything you get what you pay for so dont expect a $80 reel to do the job of a $800 one

    Sow and pig reef Sydney - where is safe to anchor?

    I always use RMS maps when looking at a fishing area. This may also help http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/documents/maritime/usingwaterways/maps/boating-maps/9d-port-jackson.pdf

    Max Reel Size For Fishing With SP's?

    Most of my inshore SP spinning reels are 2500 to 4000 but I am only generally fishing in 20mtr or less or water. As mentioned its about line capacity more than anything.

    Stripeys etc

    If I had a boat that could get me out there I definitely would. I haven't fished there but the colours & Nods are in your reach & even trolling along the north or south head could produce anything from Bonnies to Kingfish. Don't know if your going to see Dollies or Marlin that close in, more like the Fads or the Peak etc.

    Reefs close to Syd Harbour

    Found this one the other week, click on display fishing spot marks. It opens up in google earth, I had GE already installed so if it doesn't open then download GE then repeat. http://nswwrecks.info/Shipwreck Database.html

    Port Hacking

    There are a heap of deer in the national park & surrounds, to the point that there have had to be organised culls arranged by the DPI due to the danger to motorists & damage to properties. They are great to look at until they come through your windscreen! No danger if your in a boat of course Don't forget they are an introduced species, like carp, taking food out of the mouths of native species & also competing with livestock. But they taste awesome 😁
