  1. Really keen to get a jew on SP's at lake illawarra near the bridge where I've known a few to catch some big ones with SP's. Just a question with the tides is it better to fish starting with the run in or run out? http://tides.willyweather.com.au/nsw/illawarra/lake-illawarra--bridge.html For example here on Thursday would it be best to fish within the last hour of the the run out and the first hour of the run in 9:15-11:15? or is it better to target them at high tides? Just haven't had much luck lately.

    think I'm just gonna go with a mono 20lbs line with a fluorocarbon leader. Make it as simple as possible

    alright so braid for main line followed by 5-8m fluorocarbon leader? With the metal lures do you need any particular rigging? sorry trying to learn been looking up rigs but theres so much out there gets a bit confusing.

    do you replace the mainline that comes with the reel with a new line like mono/braid? or just tie it on to the mainline with a swivel?
  5. Haven't been beach fishing since I was a kid, really keen to get back into it but wanna try this time with metal/plastic lures. Types of fish? salmon, tailor, bonito, mackerel, trevally etc most from the surf/rocks Looking at this rod/reel combo Daiwa Crosscast Surf Combo - 11', 10-20Kghttp://www.bcf.com.au/online-store/products/Daiwa-Crosscast-Surf-Combo-11-10-20Kg.aspx?pid=326688&menuFrom=30305#Recommendations Most likely will pick it all up from BCF. Just a few questions I need answered. Mono or braid lines ? If so weight, brand etc ? Best type of rigs for metal lures? Cheaper better rods/reels? also would it be better to go for a 9 - 10' rod for surf/rock? Best metal lures? weight, brand etc Want gear that will last, I've done some research but still want to be sure that I'm getting the best setup for the surf/rocks. Appreciate any advice thanks.
