  1. A good run on the water, and a great spill at the end πŸ™‚ Where do you get hold of live prawns for bait? or do you catch em yourself?
  2. Brother-in-law had BM 68 FK. Supposedly randomly generated licence plate
  3. yep, me too. works fine for flatties, bream etc
  4. πŸ˜†πŸ˜† I made myself my own fish cleaning table at home πŸ‘
  5. Why not just take the fish home to clean?
  6. awesome post and awesome videos. I love the crab fight! You woulda thought the young male woulda given up his pilchard for a female choc full of eggs. Like catching public transport in Sydney!
  7. How do you use them for bait i.e. how do you put em on the hook, and how do you prevent them burying themselves in the sand?
  8. They make it look so easy on the fishing shows!
  9. I went through this in December. Did a lot of looking around this forum and others and 2 names kept coming up. Dexter Russell and Victorinox Swibo. In the end I found it hard to find those who stocked the Dexter Russell here and ended up getting the Victorinox Swibo from everten.com.au. I got a flexible blade filleting knife and a wider boning knife for under $80 for both. I haven't had the chance to fillet too many catches since then, but when I have used them they've been great. Everten were good too. I called them and spoke to them about preferred knives, and they were helpful.
  10. Great report, great pics, great time!
  11. Read the notice from Sydney Water https://www.sydneywater.com.au/SW/water-the-environment/what-we-re-doing/water-restrictions/index.htm You can wash your boat (and trailer bearings and brakes) with hose (at ramp or at home) after it's been in salt water, as long as it's with a trigger nozzle and on a 10min timer. Washing down trailer needs to be done with bucket and sponge.
  12. The Hawkesbury Jewfish facebook page recently ran a catch and release Hawkesbury Jewfish Competition in September. I wasn't able to participate, but from all accounts there were quite a few boats involved and plenty of prizes, presentations down at Parsley Bay. They're looking at having it yearly (possibly every 6months).
  13. Here's the link to permitted fishing methods https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/recreational/fishing-rules-and-regs/perm-prohib-saltwater As noelm suggests, get used to finding the answers from the real source, not relying on random advice form the internet πŸ˜‰ Hmmm, I couldn't answer whether a witches hat (or hoop net) is considered a net or a trap by fisheries. Might be worth giving the local fisheries a call to clarify.

  15. Does the heart keep pumping after the brain spike??
