    Port Hacking

    After a long time absent from fishing with Uni and everything, a friend messages me Sunday night, "reckon you will be up by 4:30, Monday morning?, Gonna fish for some squid". Didn't even bother sleeping, was already was out till pretty late. We still ended up arriving at Wally's wharf by 6:30am (behind schedule). We first drifted around the seaweed patches near Jibbon beach and jeez, it was damn cold. Drifted 3 times before we headed off to another location with nothing in the bag. the water here, dropped of to about 7-9m of water and took 20seconds for the squid jig to sink (not sure if i was doing it right). On my third cast, after letting it sink for around 20seconds, the line quickly takes off followed by the nice sound of the reel's drag system. Squid came in after a steady fight and was netted, measured at around 27cm hood length (first large squid for me!). We drifted near the area a few more times and ended up catching some more with 3 around 25cm hoodlength and 2 at 20cm hoodlength. With some squid in the bag, and no more other catches after a while, we fished around moored boats with soft plastics. Lots of bites and small runs for me before the fish lets go of the lure, but friend did catch a few small snapper and a 28cm bream. there were also some large tyres in pretty shallow water on the sand flats with a few 40cm + blackfish around them which got spooked off as our boat approached closer. Called it a day shortly after. Was happy i finally caught some larger squid but definetly need to wear more clothing, could barely feel my fingers out in the water.

    Blackfish fishing mentor needed

    Hey man, thanks for the reply, I haven't really targeted luderick or drummer of the rocks, but if you are willing to take me, ill definitely come. Safety gear, I'm ok with buying cleats and a life jacket. Gear wise, I normally use a 10 foot 2 , 3-5Kg spinning rod on a float

    Blackfish fishing mentor needed

    Hi Raiders, my name is William, I am located in the Eastern suburbs and want to improve/ learn Blackfish fishing from a mentor who would be willing to help me out. I have fished for a couple years now and I have done blackfish fishing before in the past, not really successful on the rocks but had relative success on the wharves, however i feel like I have a lot to learn still. I would be able to travel around Sydney to fish (eastern rocks or north to Balmain areas/ down south) and i do provide my own gear but not the green weed bait (All previous places i got from has disappeared). I would also only be available on the weekends since I am just starting uni now. Additionally, any information that would help me such as locations/ spots would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou very much.

    Yabbie Pumps

    Thats only their reels. Maybe because they last so long that they can't sell any to replace?

    squid all fished out ???

    The trevs were only around 26cm, not legal. I have seen people catch legal trevs there on most occasions but gets very crowded.

    squid all fished out ???

    Yes the rocks, its not dangerous, the rocks are pretty high of from the water and very flat. A footpath also leads to it basically

    Gymea Baths

    Decided to go test out my new soft plastic rod at Gymea baths yesterday (Long weekend). It was a Shimano catana soft plastic rod with a cazna reel on 8pound braid and 6pound flouro. Did some research and from personal experience previously, found that the only good spot was on the right (marked in purple in the picture). However it was completely packed at around 2pm with over 15 people fishing that wharf (lines casting over each other). The water there is actually fairly deep, with the wharf been in at least 3m plus water. Anyway, couldn't really get a good spot so for 2hours, didn't get a single take, same with the other 12 guys fishing along the wharf. The only people catching were a couple of guys that were on the spot on the right. As soon as they left, I quickly moved into that area, but only had time to fish for another 30minutes. Even in this spot, i couldn't get a single take with my soft plastic rod, which was frustrating :/ (so far only caught 2 fish on soft plastics ever, so very inexperienced). Decided to switch to a running float rig. 2minutes in first cast, got a solid down and float completely disappeared. Was onto a trevally which put up a nice fight on 6pound gear. Measured at 28cm and chucked it back. Chucked another bait in, and went to take a drink but just 3seconds in, another solid down. This time it was a solid mullet measuring 30cm+. Few minutes later and another trevally at 26cm then had to pack up and go. Overall it was a nice day, a bit windier then i expected and very packed (to be expected). The part shaded in purple is the part i ended up fishing last and what i would recommend for this place. Goodluck guys, got school exams then New Zealand schoolies (will be doing fishing there but nothing serious) so not much more fishing until January. PS: Don't swim outside the nets if you swim here, always see people doing it. Have seem pretty large sharks cruising next to the nets.

    Telescope rods

    The only good telescopic rods i know of are the iso rods. But those are generally 500$+

    squid all fished out ???

    I went down to Gymea baths yesterday, caught a few trevs. About 6 or so people were squidding of a boat and only saw them catch 1 in the couple of hours. Seems pretty dead. A good spot, which may still produce land based is at Bass and Flinders point in port Hacking.
