    hawkesbury river kayak

    Hi all, i have plan to hit hawkesbury river in my kayak on the weekend to target some bream. I am hopefully going to fish rocky edges with hardbodies and plastics and also moored boats and maybe racks. I would love some suggestions as to where the best place for this would be. Would launching at apple tree bay be good for bream or am i better off fishing around pittwater like in mccarrs creek. If Hawkesbury isnt as suitable any places i can launch and fish structure in sydney harbour for bream would be greatly appreciated also. Any information would be greatly appreciated and even private message me if you dont want all your info here to be read. Thankyou again, Daniel.

    Bunch of Newbie Questions

    1) You can either strike when the fish bites or sometimes the fish will hook itself, you will ind your preffered method by practice. 2) In my opinion, pealed prawns are the best bait for bream especially, you can buy a bag of peeled prawns from Aldi which i find good bait. 3) Main tip to catch more fish is a road question as there are many things but i will name a few. For bait fishing you should berley, this is when you throw in fish bait or fish attractant suh as prawn heads, bread mixed with tuna oil or so on in the water to attract the fish to your area. Also use google maps to find an area you think will hold fish. Fish will always hold around structure or a food source such as rock walls, pylons, jettys, weedbeds, drop offs and so on so aim your spots around areas with these structures. Hope this helped, goodluck, Daniel.

    Newbie - Reel Question

    So if you are using a spin reel which i assume you are there will be a drag setting on the top of the spool. Ifyou turn this to the left as to loosen it this will loosen the drag. You can pull the line out yourself to test how loose it is and adjust it to your preffered setting, once loose enough, this sound will go off at the smallest of takes. So once you hear the fish take it you can then tighten your drag and fight the fish. Hope this helped! Daniel.

    Any Tips For Shore Fishing Trevally?

    I definitely agree that trevally will often move around in schools. A berley trail of smashed pilchards has worked for me in the past so i would recomend that. Goodluck. Daniel.

    Look for a mono for a spinning set up

    I can also vouch for the schneider line, it's good quality!

    hand remote and foot control for electric

    Hi all, Have recently purchased an electric motor for my tiny and have finally set up battery am just waiting to mount the mounting late. My question is can i use the foot control and hand remote at the same time. So if i use foot control at one time and then my mate has the hand remote can we both use the controls as long as we dont use them at the exact same time? Im even confusing myself with how i worded this but i hope someone has an answer. Thankyou, Daniel.

    spinning for kings off the rocks.

    Hi all, so i am going on a trip at the end of the year mainly to target bream but while me and my mate are stopped at merimbula for a few days we were gong to try and get some kings off the rocks. Our plan of attack was to fish either merimbula point, mowarry or green cape. I am aware of the dangers of rock fishing as i have done it many times before and i will be wearing a life jacket and am with a mate. Does anyone have any tips on thse spots, what lures to use? I have a 10-15kg rod with a 8000 saragosa spooled with 50lb braid. We will also use live bait such as yakkas and squid if we can get any. Any tips regarding this style of fishing would be greatly appreciated. As always, thanks in advance. Thankyou, Daniel.
