  1. good onya Rick , good to see the squid are turning up. I will see you up there soon . cheers......
  2. I fish quite often in the Gorokan and Toukley part of the lakes and for the last 6 months the flathead have been well down on previous years . There has not been a lot of good rainfall in the last year . And I think that could be why the Entrance is so clogged up with sand . The lake system may benefit from a big rain event to open the channel and flush out the creeks as well.

    I am fairly certain a member from The Entrance on the central coast NSW grows his own . I think his user name is Stapo . Cheers.
  4. you can also try the public wharf at Belmont , and I have caught squid at Summerland Point wharf which is also lit up at night. and I have also caught squid at Murrays Beach wharf but you need to take a headlight with you as it is not lit up at night . try to use good quality jigs like Yamashita or Yozuri , not too big 2:5 or smaller in the lake as the squid are not big calamari , they are arrow squid . they are still good eating and good bait. .......cheers and good luck.
  5. thanks guys as long as its a bream i am satisfied , cheers.....
  6. thanks Qnut , i have caught lots of bream in the river and the lake over the last 24 years and this was the first fish that did not have a yellow anal spike and the fish was darker than usual . maybe some black bream make their way up hear.
  7. gooday to everyone , last wednesday i caught a bream from wyong river , and i noticed that the bream was darker than usual and the large spike on the anal fin was dark . every other bream i have caught at wyong river and tuggerah lakes have been yellowfin . i would like to know if the black bream do occur this far north ? the bream i caught was healthy and put up a good fight and was 27 cms. was caught about 1 km from where the river meets the lake. i will attempt to post a couple of pics as i am a novice at uploading photos. cheers........
  8. Bad luck fishingguy my guess the fish may have been a bream or estuary perch that took the live prawn that far up river.
  9. Great luderick Qnut must be well over a kilo , did you get it on cabbage weed or the lake weed ?
  10. before july a bloke i know was catching flathead right at the bridge on soft plastics , curl tail and grub i think 3" in pumpkinseed. and yes Qnut i agree that if the wind is strong you need to use a small running sinker if baitfishing. i have been using 4lb flouro on the bream and have only had the line break when has cut off on the bridge concrete pylons as i try to cast close to them, that is where the bream like to stay.
  11. yeah novicefisherman does get busy there on weekends especially in the warmer months . best if you fish early morning or late afternoon and evening, even better on weekdays . i have found that you have to fish really light lines , minimum sinker if using bait as there is very little tidal flow . when i bait fish for bream with a cheese and flour pudding i dont use any sinker , as the pudding bait is enough weight to reach bottom . also the Wyong river that flows into tuggerah lake is a good place to throw in a line if landbased . i have caught good bream there and is good for float fishing for mullet and also luderick in the cooler months.......cheers.
  12. G`day fellow fishing fanatics , this is my first post on this forum . i have been following fishraider forum now for about a month and am really impressed . the members are very encouraging and seem to give advice to help others who may not have as much knoledge or experience. anyway i fished tuggerah lake this morning , landbased near toukley bridge got there just before sunup to try my new BERKLEY dropshot 1-3 kg 7 foot rod with my old shimano 2500 threadline reel . i`ve got just 4 lb flouro line on it, i managed to land 2 nice bream 31 cm and 29 cm . i was only using bait , pudding made with cheese and plain flour and was also using some chicken fillet , both bream caught on the pudding unweighted. i kept the 2 bream as we havent had fresh fish for a couple of weeks thanks to the crap weather. the lakes water is really dirty at the moment and quite a bit of current which made it difficult to hold bottom. i have been getting quite a few bream during winter fishing light and also fishing early morning or late in the arvo . now that i have a decent rod i want to start fishing soft plastics to target the bream and also flatties as the weather warms up. so i am open to any advice regarding SP`s and also the best sizes or weights of jigheads. hope i havent bored you folk , cheers from " bazagorokan ".
