    First timer downrigging for Kingfish

    I've got a few questions as well: - What hooks do you guys prefer for downrigging slimies and yakka's? (im not wasting good squid on kings) - Do you bridle rig or just go straight through the nose? - Locked up drag or free spool to allow them to swallow the bait? - What is your preferred size of live bait? I'm sure there are more questions that ill think of later on

    Longest fight?

    Giving consideration to taking on a tiger this season. not sure how keen i am on patching the gelcoat afterwards though. Trying ton convince my mate it would be a better idea to do it out of his sailfish lol

    Longest fight?

    When i was 12 i spent 2 1/2 hours on 15 basically straight up and down on a black around 120kg at the banks, couldn't budge it for hell nor money and in hindsight im guessing it had probably died during the fight. That was my second battle with a black that day, first fish estimated around 70kg and also lost after about half an hour. This was in the old days of 400lb traces as long as allowable 11 or 12/0 stainless 7691's, towing stripies around hooked up through the top jaw. Thankfully the next day i caught my first marlin a little striped of 66kg on a pink top gun cup face around 6 inches and the love affair continues.

    Small fish I don’t recognise (Driftfish)

    I recognise it albeit the ones I think ive seen before were significantly larger. I'm thinking a breed of scad, maybe scaly scad or something along those lines

    Which fish is this ?,Off Beach. (Salmon/Kahawai)

    Yep Tailor. Good way to tell the difference between the two is to stick your finger in its mouth. If you lose your finger = tailor if not = Salmon. Only works 8 times though

    How safe is it to burley off a main beach ?

    Thinking back to some of the stories from the days of blokes sharking off Tarthra wharf

    Stripeys etc

    The back wash off the rocks is your friend, bonnies, tailor, salmon and kings are all fair game. I've always found blue and white, red and white, 2-4 inch lures do the job in these areas and on the light gear you can have heaps of fun.

    Fish ID ?? (Numbfish)

    Does appear to be a baby numb ray. You really should have touched it to confirm for us

    Tuna fishing Sydney

    Well played fella's. I only chased them once this season for absolute frustration.

    Keeping cabbage weed fresh overnight

    The old timers say the same about green weed. More bugs the better

    Keeping cabbage weed fresh overnight

    Not sure about others but ive tried cabbage in the crookhaven river and the blackfish dont want a bar of it, while they will happily take green weed. I'm convinced like tuna they get fixated on one thing and wont even consider anything else

    What FISH IS THIS !! (Southern Eagle Ray)

    Fight as well as any fish that swims on light gear. We get a few of them fishing really shallow water for snapper

    Sussex Inlet / St Georges Basin

    I had a look at Murrays the other day as an option to launch my boat. I was there at the low tide and there was roughly 0% chance of me being able to get mine out on the low. Woolamia is about as good as it gets in JB which is madness given how popular the bay is. Callala is a total write off
