  1. Hi Raiders, Haven’t been out chasing Kings this week (busy at school) BUT Considering a trip to Norfolk to chase big Kings (also N.Z around Corrimandle area) and would love some feedback on time of year and charter operators from any who have been. Pickles

    Sydney Kings

    I took “the boss” out today and she was quite excited to catch a legal king (“ almost better than shopping”). The Squid were a bit slow today, but heaps of Yakkas at all the common spots and Kings we’re slow too. All the kings were either outside (12 mile) and Long Reef. A few rats in middle harbour though. Ive been getting XXL cuttlefish (2 at Long Reef = 9.7 kg) and the candles from these are the hot shot, youbeaut bait for Kings - like Tim Tams.

    Sydney Harbour Fishing Sesh

    Well done Sambros. Nice film work too. Those “red eyes” / Big eyes” are a bit of a nuisance, but last time we kept some for the table. Once skinned and filleted, they were pretty good eating - a row of bones down the middle, so a small top and bottom fillet strip and they definitely need to be skinned. A buddy who gets them pretty regularly told me they are also called “Happy Moments” as the pain from a spike is similar to red rock cod and not fun. Pickles

    Successful day on Cowan creek + feeding frenzy

    Great post Jords Boi, some big sedentary kings move into estuaries in autumn and winter and become very choosy about bait/food. Live or fresh (not frozen) squid are certainly the go, but live gars are excellent in autumn and not that hard to catch - small Owner “mosquito” hooks (no 12-14) just cover the hook tip (fresh yellowtail, squid or bread (gluten mix is good).
  7. September is good for kings, if they continue as they have, I don’t know if they’ll back off at all over winter? The off shore reefs are more consistent over spring though
  8. Hey big Neil, I keep most of the Squid for bait, if big calamari (they are getting bigger as winter progresses) I use the head and flaps for bait and take the canopy for eating. the best bait is actually the guts including the ink sac. As winter approaches they move to the offshore reefs (12 mile, the Peak, Longie) and only a few stay in the harbour, but these are often stockers. I’ve also caught Cobia in autumn / winter live baiting for kings. bob

    Good one Scratchie, nothing wrong with catching someone else’s fish
  10. Hi Raiders, the Kings in Sydney Harbour have been a little slow over past few weeks - somewhat spasmodic, but squid have really picked up in size and number. I went out with a fellow raider last Wed (Duncan) and we fished for 30-40minutes and boated 6 nice squid, mostly green eyes (calamari), but interestingly there were 2 arrow squid with them. We boated 6 Kings, 2 keepers, all 62-65cm. It was really good to get out and share with a fellow raider. bob

    No Kings, but heaps of little dollies

    Thanks for ID
  12. Went to the Fad on Friday, all the big Mahi Mahi seem to have gone elsewhere, but there we heaps and heaps of these little dollies. Also heaps of these striped black fish - think they are trevally, very slimy- all went back. Any clues on the species, I’ve never caught them before?
