    Collecting oysters as bait - legality & safety

    How do you use em for bait. Fresh oysters are very soft, particularly the size you find growing naturally. I'd imagine they'd be very hard to keep on the hook and get a hook up.

    Silly things you've done when tired?

    Happened to me last it me I took the boat out. The thing is, the towball was all the way in, and the locking pin secured. No idea how she came off. Luckily it was only at the end of the street. Made a hell of a noise at 5am in the morning though.

    Spots around little wobby

    You in a boat? Assuming you are, drifting between Juno Point and Flint & Steel. Or closer to Wobby, the eastern side of Dangar Island.

    Winter blue swimmers

    I suspect it'd be as Green Hornet said - might get a few but they'd be low on meat

    Hawkesbury houseboat fishing trip

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

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

    Thanks for that. Is this where you mean?

    Port Macquarie land based fishing options

    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

    Port Macquarie land based fishing options

    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.
  11. 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.

    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.
