    Just wondering if there are any thoughts on making raiders a facebook group. I currently am on facebook flatehead fisher, all things fishing sydney, barcrusher owners and a few more, but raiders has the quality intel just needs daily input.

    Hawkesbury Kingfish

    Hi mate kings are a bit hit and miss as they swim alot I have seen fly fishers catch them around long nose point but no luck myself. Plenty vids on youtube showing kings around the moored boats. But hopefully another raider can give us a leg up.

    Hi Jake, I use pilchard tails and have caught a large variety of fish plus the rest makes excellent burly. You can fish them unweighted or with a sinker in many different rigs, unweighted covers the whole water column plus in a retrieve they can act like a lure. Key is to learn how to present them and tie a half hitch for security. SNAPPER ADDICTED MEMBER 0 947 posts Location:Maroubra NSW Report post Posted April 17, 2007 Stylo - the best way to rig the tail half of a cut pilchard is as follows: 1. push the point of the hook through the flesh just in front of the tail (i.e. where the flesh just begins on the body of the pillie) 2. pull the whole hook through the pillie so that the tail half is 'threaded' on the line just at the point where the tail meets the body. 3. stick the point of the hook into the cut made by the knife (when slicing the pillie in half) and pull the line tight. 4. tie a half-hitch around the tail and tighten to secure the bait. Using this method I find that pillie talis stay on the hook better than the heads.

    The easy way to remove old line from your spool

    I use the same brand drill to remove line and so far just throw it out but I also use a screwdriver through a 1000m spool of line held by the drill to respool I have calico garden gloves that I use to maintain tension and I work at that B hardware store.

    Fishing with alternative baits

    I have used meat in the past my experience is when the bite is not on it leaches pretty quick losing all colour and flavor but from the other posts seems you can add more. I am a big fan of pilchards but that's because they suit the way I fish and what I target, next would be lures from sabiki for bait fish to halco metals, platics and hardbodies like rapala. all have produced for me.
