    Vaucluse off the rocks

    Think most guys use a size 6 for blackness off the rocks.

    Patonga, NSW

    Biggest flattie I ever caught was at the mouth of the creek, cast a mullet strip into the creek and let it float down with the flow . . .

    Nice to have a quiet spot for a fish! Frustrating when your stopper moves . . . Some nice looking fish too!
  10. A nice way to kick off Boxing Day, with some good fishing!

    Sharks in the Harbour

    And don't forget the Navy clearance diver who was attacked by a bull shark at Wolloomooloo a couple of years ago, losing a leg.

    Sharks in the Harbour

    I remember back in the 70's, sharks used to bite the sculls of private school boys rowing on the Lane Cove river.

    Blackfish/Rockfishing reel

    They are reels with a spindle (pin) through the centre of the reel! Google up Alvey blackfish reels and they will come up, I think LA is referring to the 475AE model. Have a look at Blackfish Anglers post, he has one of the Alvey models in his photo's I think one or more of the models can be turned sideways for easier casting, though apparantly that leads to line twist after a while.

    Blackfish/Rockfishing reel

    What LA said . . I prefer a centrepin for rock fishing, I believe it is much easier to keep contact with your float in the surge. They are dead easy to cast, hardly took me any practice to get the basic hang of it. Just stop the reel spinning when the float hits the water!

    Just went to try my new Blackfish Rod and Reel

    Getting a decent fish when not really trying is a pretty good way to test out a new setup! Shame you didn't have your mat to measure up a probable PB . . . .

    Sydney Harbour DPI dietary advice

    Well, Table 1 in that report makes interesting reading . . . From a statistical anaylsis point of view they are some pretty small sample sizes and no std deviation results are listed. A sample size of 33 prawns?? and 7 flathead? Any statisticain worth his salt would laugh at figures like that! No details about where the fish were taken from that I could see either. Intererstingly, the fish showing higher figures like Sea Mullet, Silver Biddie and yellowtail scad I would imagine are eaten far less than say flathead or bream. That would skew the figure upwards. Not saying I would be disregarding the figures and be scoffing Seafood from west of the bridge, however in my opinion those analysis results are pretty damn bare.

    Quick 3 hour fish.

    Nice start to the work Chrissy party!
  21. I can see this creating a false sense of security with inexperienced rock fishermen resulting in ppl fishing in dodgy conditions and ending up in the drink.

    A few Blackfish from today 30/10/2016

    Pretty sure the DPI has a recommended amount to limit eating of fish taken west of the bridge. I wonder about the difference in Dioxin levels of fish that eat bottom dwelling/feeding crustaceans compared to primarily vegetarians like blackfish.

    Blackie fishos - good net?

    Mine's a Wilson with a couple of hole drilled in it to go onto an extendable paint roller pole. Good for about 16' I think.
