    Great report Gordo thanks. Which do you think are better eating, the rainbows or browns?

    Hawkesbury River Blackfish

    Good on you, that looks about as good as it gets - idyllic surroundings, plenty of action, unforgettable time spent with loved ones and a good feed as a bonus. Exceptional results, keep it up.

    Improving day for Blackfish

    Nice catch Ryder! Great score picking up the Avon from Vinnies - mine was stolen from my car many decades ago!

    Improving day for Blackfish

    Hi Lakelad, I used to catch blackfish all the time as a boy and young bloke. The most important tips I could give you are: 1. Fish light - no more than 6 lb trace 2. Balance your float (the smallest possible for the conditions) with lead on your line beneath float so that it is only just floating with only the very top of it visible. This way when the fish takes the bait the float will go down without the fish feeling any resistance. 3. Present your bait simply and naturally, not a big bunch but a small strip of weed or cabbage with a half hitch to keep the hook covered. 4. Vary your float depth if your not getting downs. I vividly recall one occasion arriving at a crowded rock spot beneath Waverley cemetery with about 10 people trying unsuccessfully to get blackfish. I had been there the previous night and knew they were feeding at a depth of only 5 feet or so. Bang I was on first cast and the next 4 casts, before I had to tell them to shorten their rig and then they were all onto the fish! That's not all there is to it, but I reckon this will help!

    Guitar playing and fishing go hand in hand! What a magnificent feed that is..

    Finally a good catch of whiting

    Sorry, can't work out how to delete the post. Maybe admin can help. Was trying to help people get onto some fish. Promise I won't come back to the forum though. Have a great year everyone!

    Jesus mate I must plead ignorance - I thought it was 20. That's how long it's been since I've been fishing. I'll know for next time. I thought people were impressed - my bad. They were telling me I did a bad thing. Over and out. Good luck everyone!

    Finally a good catch of whiting

    After a long break from fishing been getting back into it. Been using live worms and nippers and struggling to get 1 or 3 fish, sometimes nothing. Then last Saturday night after the southerly died down, and then the following morning I got amongst them. Bronte Beach. Rising tide, live beachworms, running sinker rig with 8 lb leader. Been eating these all week. Bloody good to know that you can still catch a great feed in the middle of Sydney. On Sunday morning I was plucking them out from in between about thirty surfers!

    Newcastle - beach fishing

    Hey Dave, thanks. Got one tonight about the size of yours - a good feeling after a long break from fishing! And it was on 10 lb trace in the surf!

    Totally like your approach Dave, including the rubbish pickup. Those are some healthy whiting, great job. I've always thought 10 lb is too heavy to get bites for whiting, but it doesn't seem to stop you! Here I was last night in Botany Bay with live nippers and 5 lb trace and couldn't get a bite, even though I know there are whiting there!
