    Reddies are on!!!

    Nice work, some great fish! One quick thing though, may well pay to check out this link https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/pests-diseases/animal-health/aquaculture/white-spot-disease In NSW it's recommended not to use prawns intended for human consumption as bait to prevent the spread of white spot disease. We want to protect our fishery, this disease wiped out over 2 million prawns intended for stocking, if it gets into our waterways it has the potential to cause irreparable damage to our prawn fishery! Great fish again guys, just wanted to put that information out there!
  2. Go the 8000 Saragosa, it's higher speed than the 10000 so better for casting slugs and stickbaits (not as tiring casting and retrieving all day) Still has 12kg of drag and can fit just under 300m of 40lb power pro, so if you put on a high quality japanese braid with a smaller diameter you can fit more on the spool for when you go out and hook a big longtail

    North Narrabeen 9/8/14

    Made the last minute decision after work on Saturday to make the drive to narrabeen and soak some pillies off the beach. Arrived at about 6:30 and got two rods set up with baits out, only saw tbe last hour of the run in for nothing but a small tailor, then the tide turned and fished the first two hours of run out for these two lovely sambos that both accounted for themselves very, very well. The first (slightly smaller) one took to the air about 8 times which was great fun, and upon inspecting him closer something had taken a big fresh chunk out of his right shoulder! Was a great last minute session on a beautiful, clear night with some good results. Photos of the two sambos to come (when I can figure out how

    Squid in bobbin head

    Was this land based or boat?
  13. Great stuff! Do you mind if I ask what weight jigheads you were using? it looks like it might be as bit as 1/6th oz but I would have thought that was too heavy! Haha congratulations on a great day's fishing!
  14. Hey Raiders, I was just wondering if anybody knew of any half decent land-based bass spots around the central coast area? Or even around north sydney? (Hornsby/Dural etc). Any help at all would be MUCH appreciated, got my first taste of bass fishing last week, and now I am well and truly hooked!! Cheers! Dan

    Fishing the fish

    you can camp at Flat Rock reserve on Mutton Falls Rd. It's one of the favourite spots on the fish mainly due to ease of access downstream. but I believe there are also a few other places further upstream you can hitch a tent.

    Beaches around Bulli?

    Ended up going down to Austinmer for a couple of hours after work on Tuesday night. I always rig a surf popper to my paternosters on the beach, and 80% of the fish I land are taken on the popper over the bait. Anyway, long story short, landed countless undersized flathead (3 keepers, on pippies), the tailor were out in force, but only 1 actually landed, and 4 smaller salmon on the ganged pilchard. Also had an eel on (about 1-1.5m) that spat the hook in the wash, I'd never caught or even hooked an eel off the beach before so this was an exciting sighting for me!! Anyway, not a bad little evening session overall.

    Beaches around Bulli?

    Hey Raiders, I'm down in Thirroul/Wollongong/Bulli for the next two weeks for a uni placement and am wondering if anyone has had any past experiences fishing the beaches in the area? Will mainly be targeting salmon. Cheers!! Dan

  20. G'day Raiders, I'm out in West Wyalong for the next two weeks on a placement for my uni degree, and I'm just wondering if anyone has had any experience in fishing the creeks, rivers, or lakes out here? Also whether or not you're even allowed to fish the creeks/rivers out here anymore? Cheers, Dan

    West Wyalong Fishing?

    Neil, I used a range of rmg, halco, and strike pro deep diving hard bodies between 60-80mm, worked around the the structure. They were chasing the real dark coloured lures (black, deep green and purple). Cheers, Dan

    West Wyalong Fishing?

    Headed up to condobolin and arrived at the lachlan river at around 11am armed with super light gear for hopefully some decent sized yellas on hard bodies. Fished a few spots up and down river for about four hours before heading back south. Tell you what, as much of a pest as they are, it's a sight and a half seeing some truly enormous carp getting MAJOR air throughout the day. Anyway, the end result was three yellas hooked and sighted (ranging between approx. 40-70cm), each fighting harder than the last, but with my super light gear they managed to run back to the structure they called home and bust me off. Even though I didn't land a fish, it was still a great day out in the sun on the beautiful lachlan river. If my fellow raiders are ever after a great little spot for a camping and fishing weekend, I can't rate this place high enough. Picturesque doesn't do it justice!! Anyway that's that, next time i'll pack some heavier gear and hopefully get some photos of the beasts that bested me this time around. Until next time, tight lines fellow raiders!! Dan

    West Wyalong Fishing?

    Yeah I'm targeting yellas. Little bit annoyed this placement wasn't a few weeks ago so I could get into some cod, but what do you do haha

    West Wyalong Fishing?

    Update: spoke to a few locals and they recommended the lachlan river near condobolin, so I'm heading up tomorrow to hopefully get into some golden perch (yellowbelly)!!
