  1. I hit Pittwater on Wednesday as well on a yak (yellow PA14). Started early and got some squid up near Barrenjoey. I didn't want to waste the live squid early so first bait I dropped was a tailor fillet - literally as it hit the water and sank after I dropped it in (I was still fussing with the rod holder) a king swam up, looked at, and swam away - only one I saw all day. Plenty of surface action straight after though and pulled in a few frigate macs on fast stick baits but that was it. Trolled the live squid around for 4 hours but nothing touched it, it came home for Calamari.
  2. Any spots you find check against the fisheries local guides : http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/recreational/resources/info For example Gunnamatta bay is easily accessible with a big sand flat but is off limits for bait collection.
  3. If thats tough fishing then I must be some sort of masochist - salmon, squid and a king in one day would is a pretty good one to me Good on you as always!
  4. Now that I have a kayak and sounder I have moved from struggling to attract fish from one spot (land based) to struggling to find fish all over. The sounder has been great for finding bait schools say around the fridge, and occasionally seeing what I think are larger fish under me as I move about, but I am yet to really mark fish and put something onto them. I am just wondering what are some techniques I can use to make better use of my sounder? If say I am moving around and mark an arch under me, should I be immediately trying to drop a plastic on its head and jig up some activity, or sho
  5. Between weather, work, family events and issues and potential house hunting its been a while I have done a kayak session. With work stress pilling up of late the wife sent me fishing (I didn't argue) so I did a lazy start at middle harbour today, launching after 10 from Clontarf. The plan was live baiting (a work vendor was teasing me that yakkas were back around Balmoral) but when I setup my live bait tank just would not go. Even stranger the sounder was working even though its power feed was turned off. I should have thought about this some more but after a few replugs and tests I figure
  6. Congrats - with the rod blessed by the blackfish godfathers and the blackfish themselves you will now be a force of nature
  7. I got a Raymarine Dragonfly 4 Pro for my kayak - only got the chance to use it twice so far (second time after a capsize on the first trip out). Its brilliant - the down image side by side with the regular sonar helps identify the bottom. I got the pro model because I wanted GPS to help with marks or searching new water for holes etc. It also has its own wifi which lets you connect to it on your phone as a second screen or to take screenshots etc. I looked at the Lowrance 4x as well but most reports I read seemed that people were happier with the Raymarines. As above its even been upside
  8. Congrats - planning to start trying to target jews off the kayak myself
  9. Thanks all - it certainly was a moment when she first came into view - more so when I was able to get her on the mat Thanks Andrew - very chuffed. With the head this girl had on her I am not surprised she took that yakka, but still I would not have figured a flathead going for a yakka that size. Be nice - its only happened once so far! Thanks I had her on straight without the photo to get the measure and it was enough of a task - I might have cheated myself a cm or two but I didn't want to stress her too much and I had no real options to get her onto a flat surface. I am conte
  10. Lol - thanks. I normally have a yellow chamois for handling fish but I lost it last week in the capsize. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Does the yellow pull tag on my lifejacket qualify for FOTM submission? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Following last weeks capsize and dunking I had a few repairs to effect. The major one being my live bait tank "control" box, that also feeds power to my sounder, which got water logged. I had tried to build a timer for the tank but failed, so to rebuild I ordered a proper livewell timer and put together a new setup that was built a little better. By Saturday night it was done and tested. Keen to put to use I headed out again from Clontarf around 7am. Checking the fridge I couldnt sound any bait so I moved over to Balmoral, and the sounder was doing its job as two times on the way I sound
  13. Yeah - the unfit part is what let me down Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. I also mix some cajan powder the flour too but not sure it makes much difference Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
