    Bream going frenzy!!

    I thought this was from squid attacking them when they were young.

    Harbour rocks blackfish report

    Nice catch! Something my local tackle shop owner told me is that filleting your fish while at the rocks can be risky, cause if a fishing inspector comes there is no way to measure your catch which could result in a fine.

    Think its a parrotfish? (Crimson Banded Wrasse. Male)

    Nice eating fish imo, but a bit of a pain to remove the gills.

    Great night at the wharf

    This iso setup is also called free float fishing and yes the cost of the float is expensive. one other advantage of this setup is that you have no stopper knot, which means you dont have to worry about setting the bait to the right depth. It cant be used in all conditions but is very effective in the right conditions as I have been out fished by my friend this way when i used a traditional iso float setup with a stopper knot.

    Recommend a car to transport a kayak?

    Haven't bought a yak yet, still working on selling the old van and buying a second Haven't bought a kayak yet. still looking into sell the old van and buying a second hand car! Sounds like the NKL is the way to go for any high vehicle! Will make that decision once I'm closer to really buying one, which is still months away unfortunately.

    Sunday Feb 5th - time for a meet

    Yes I work with Richard. Still haven't got a kayak yet, need to purchase a suitable vehicle first and prob get an outback with reverse 180. I can see why clontarf is a great place to launch kayaks, its flat and easy. Don't know if anyone has pointed out that there is actually is a vending machine there that sells bait and tackle?

    Recommend a car to transport a kayak?

    Thanks for responding guys, from what I have read a lower car is definitely better and something with easy access to the boot to store the other gear. Time to start the car hunt!
  13. Hi guys, I have to buy a second hand car soon and I'm also intending to buy a hobie outback as well. wondering what vehicle you currently use and or what your recommended vehicle would be? ideally a 4 door vehicle is preferred as I need to transport 2 kids occasionally to school for drop offs and pickups. my initial budget would be something under 15k. thanks Brad
  14. Well done, great catch! I could be wrong but I think you may have caught tarwhine as well

    No fish in Port Stephens

    I am back from port Stephens as I can vouch it's been tough fishing there last week. Morning sessions were really very very lean, the afternoon sessions were slightly better. i also saw prob the same large bream at the breakwall, they didn't want any of my prawns or burley. All I caught there was lots of sweep and bulleyes. think November has gotta be the toughest season for land based fishing also a big thanks scratchie for recommending some fishing spots.
