    Wide of Jervis Bay this weekend.

    Interested to hear how you went. There were kingies around last Tues / Wed and some big bust ups that looked like decent Tuna not far out the front of JBl
  2. Start out with with a light 7 foot rod 8 pound nylon line (preferably fluorocarbon). Number 10 long shank chemically sharpened hook or number 4 mustad circle hook with a 0 ball sinker. Simply thread sinker onto line then tie on hook with unit knot called running sinker rig. Chicken thigh fillet cut into small strips, place bait on hook by putting the point through one end once only resist temptation to thread bait onto hook. Cast into likely area preferably utilise a rod holder and leave line free to run off spool, paying attention. When line starts moving off the reel faster start reeling in your catch. Resist the urge to strike instead wait until fish is definitely on the line before reeling in. Experiment with location and observe the conditions when and where you are successful. The further you have to walk to a location the more fish you will catch. Threw in most recent catch using this method

    REMINISCING- Silver Trevally

    Very informative and interesting write up. We can definitely learn a lot from the way things were.

    Jewie bite

    Strangely enough today i got bitten by a snapper and a bream holding them while scaling them over the side of the boat. The bream hurt a bit. I think if you used Iki Jimi or wait till the fish is properly dead it wont happen.

    Hard to beat a session like that off the beach, very rewarding and a great feed!!

    Freshwater eels for shark bait

    I remember reading about the "Shark Men of Tathra Wharf" using freshwater eels exclusively as bait. They had sewed them up in a particular way to present them on a hook targeting XOS bronzies, tigers and ad they referred to them "white death". Pretty sure there was an article in a 70's edition of the Anglers Omnibus.

    Prawn net replacement

    Made the mistake of using the prawn scoop net as a landing net and had to cut the lure out every fish I caught leaving it full of holes. Wondering how to thread on the replacement. It appears the frame is somehow pressed onto the handle. Is there a trick to removing the head of the net from the handle without cutting anything?

    Where are the pelagics?

    Anyone else noticing a distinct lack of Bonnies, kings & salmon at the moment. According to my diary this time last year fishing landbased JB I'd caught nearly 50 Bonito and around 20 salmon 5 kings but so far I have 6 bonnies and 2 salmon as well as 3 rats only. Interested to hear from other areas to give hope that they may arrive soon, cheers Toilor

    Jb landbased

    I fish 4 or 5 days a week 2 hour sessions constantly casting and retrieving off the rocks & have just topped up after 3 months so not too bad. I don't use it on my boat outfits where distance isn't as important. Nothing again this morning but what looked to be frigates busting up and I didn't have anything small enough to tempt them.

    Jb landbased

    Gliss casts around 30 percent further than anything imo making it great for landbased spinning. Abrasion resistance slightly less than braid but not too bad however it deteriorates with fibers separating after 2 months fishing 4 days a week constantly casting. Deterioration doesn't effect strength much but looks terrible. Fg knot strength excellent and stuff all wind knots

    I'll try that next time. Nothing but 2 half hearted hits this morning

    Jb landbased

    Saltist 4500 and lox iridium 12ft surf 12210. It is a long rod but at full tilt has plenty of power. I'm accustomed to playing fish and letting them tire themselves out. It was suggested that the length of the rod would be a hinderance but I believe as I modify my technique and work out how hard I can go it'll do the job. Didn't want to be poling Bonnie's and salmon on a broomstick as they make up the bulk of the catch. I've been using a 12 foot wilson heritage and tss4 for 15 years so it has been a learning curve. Keen to hear what you think

    Jb landbased

    Been hitting the stones 4 mornings in the last week. Usual setup of 40lb gliss 30lb leader 40 gram knight got a nice suprise after thinking I'd let the lure sink to far and hooked the bottom, turned out to be a little snapper. Also got my first kingy on a soft plastic 7inch zman white flickbait 2oz jig head. Buried me on the ledge but I stayed patient and 5mins later he swam out 55cm. Seems wrong that an undersized fish should brick me on reasonably heavy gear but they just dive so hard I cant stop them. Totals for the 4 mornings are 3 Bonnies 3 kings (all under incl 25cm model) the snapper and a salmon. I clean the fish on leaving and have taken to eating hearts, livers and eggs / melts raw as shown to me by a Cook Islander, give it a try if you can stomach it. Next 4 days should be good fishing with perfect moon phase and decent weather. Pic in comment below. Cheers Toilor
