    Hawkesbury houseboat fishing trip

    Refuge Bay would be nice and close to Juno. Plenty of moorings there.

    Port Macquarie land based fishing options

    Thanks Dean. Thanks for that. Looks like a good spot.

    Thanks for that. Is this where you mean?

    Thanks. I had a crack there last year, but the current was flowing so fast it was hard to work any lures or plastics there. I'll target the dead of the tide if I go there.

    Have driven past there previously. Might give it a shot

    Thanks for the reply granddad. Are you talking from experience, and have caught fish there? Only asking because I've fished that stretch of settlement drive before, and area near the ferry, and have never caught anything. Happy to persist there if there are catches to be made.
  7. I am heading up to Port Macquarie for a few days next weekend and am looking for some tips for good land based locations. Intending to flick plastics or lures for flathead and whiting. Any suggestions would be helpful. Cheers

    ID Please (Longtail Catfish)

    not sure of the name, but a type of catfish. Abundant in the Hawkesbury. Don't go anywhere near the spines - extremely painful if spiked. I normally don't take any chances and just cut the line off.

    Rod holder - angles for drifting vs anchoring

    yep, I like that idea

    Bottom Bouncing Strategies

    Well, I'm convinced! Bought one of those jigs on friday. Yesterday I used it on the bottom of my paternoster rig. I've never had success on the paternoster rig before, but yesterday, the flatties were onto it all day. Never hooked up on the jig, but there was definitely more interested in the first baited hook. Don't think i'll ever use a snapper lead again. I went back this morning to grab a few more while they're on special

    Rod holder - angles for drifting vs anchoring

    That was my thought initially. I ended up getting 1 of each of the rod holders, and with the rods in, out on the water, I just didn't feel confident. I ended up tethering the rods to the holders just in case.
  12. I am looking to get some rod holders similar to those pictured below. The one on the left sits the rod quite flat. The one on the right is adjustable and the angle can be changed. Would the angle of the rods for drifting be the same as when anchored up? Or would you normally have a slightly higher angle when on the drift? I like the stainless steel option on the left but will be wanting to use them whilst anchored as well as drifting.

    How is everyone storing their soft plastics?

    I noticed recently the gulps being marketed with a new and improved seal on the packet. I'm not sure if they're any better as I still don't used them. Would be good to hear if other people have noticed an improvement in the packet recently.

    How is everyone storing their soft plastics?

    I went from gulps to z-mans to avoid the mess of leaking packets. I prefer zmans as there is no juice to leak, and you don't have to worry about them drying out. I just keep em in their packets in a zip up wallet that holds quite a few packs. If you're using cheap plastic containers, they can melt the SP's. Also, different types of SPs (or any other plastic lures for that matter) can melt together. I've lost many a brand new soft vibe and cranka crabs because they've been left in contact with an SP and melted together.
