  1. Went this morning 4am to lilli pilli for some rattie fun .... and it was raining plenty of pilchards around, no kingies. Even the pickers were quite caught one sick one (had been attacked and was missing most of its tail) lingering under a boat. Plenty of crap in the water still so heads up if you plan on heading. Main channel has cleared up abit, well for a incoming tide is has. Still dirty around the moored boats at lilli pilli Water temp dropped from 25 to 22.5 after the rain in recent weeks.
  2. have been to the wharf quite alot for a kingie or two & have seen them paroling it every now and then telling the occasional boat thats a little to close to the wharf to move out. Do get slight swell in there but mostly wind chop. Theres plenty of yakkas and occasionally slimeys & squid all around the wharf and the tug moorings around the north side of the wharf. Dose fish well at times. Probably the best place to get lives if your going to go around the heads as they are a 10 minute paddle away. parking at moli can be bad on the weekends.. i have just launched at kurnell and just peddle over to moli
  3. ohhh i like that tip! keep that in mind next time i use them
  4. dont forget oysters! even though they fall of the hook easily i have caught some massive bream on them, cant say i have had much luck on crabs tho
  5. Legend! Ill probably try just of the hacking first in bate bay before going around to kurnell once i get comfortable. Weather & swell is really just common sense i was just worried about current and backwash. Im properly over thinking it, ill get out when the swell isn't so big and powerful. kurnell, as i see it the only local spot to pull a big king and a few bonnies (god they are fun on light gear), millions of rats inside the hacking around lilli pilli, like usual. I don't expect to pull one on my first trip ether, takes quite abit of learning of the new area before you start constantly pulling fish
  6. makes me want to go outside the heads even more! Inexperience is getting me / not really having the balls to cruise outside the heads. i will get out there one day! Is current & back wash from swell hitting cliffs and whatever ever a issue? also do you get your lives in the kayak or just at a local wharf?
  7. i did already. made this post as it seemed it was quieter than usual, still got a haul of fish with a cracker snap. Seen your report, cracker bream. hard to fool a fish thats 35 years old. congrats! nice! i made my mind up on jewies, haven't caught one in awhile. ill more and likely try and grab a few yakkas tomorrow and leave them overnight. lilli pilli is also in a bay which is different to on the rocks. not to big on the stones anymore unfortunately from previous experience i have noticed certain species of fish move on after big rains, influx of fresh water and dirt and other crap and the water temp changing quite quickly. weather or not its ture, no idea.
  8. Wow, thats a bloody ripper of a red for the bay. PB for you in the bay? you manage to always find the fish - or do they find you?
  9. So i haven't been fishing in a week and abit and i'm itching for a fish. Was looking at saturday and it seems alright. Low tides 8am hightide 2pm, wind average at 25km, i expect this to change depending on the path cyclone osla (or whatever its name is) course and distance from the coast. So going off these conditions, i would like to go for kings at lilli pilli at 6am but with the recent rain it may be pointless. The question is, are the waters still 23-25c? and do kingfish like this coffee brown runoff? or do i got for jewies at the mouth of the Georges on last 2-3 hrs on the runout and the hightide turn at 2pm as i know they like these waters?
  10. I just looked on windy, they have it heading parallel to the coast, few hundred km. with it scraping along coffs, bringing coastal rain and wind on ECMWF model. shouldnt see much more than a slight breeze anywhere south of coffs. not much rain in it too it seems looks likes surfs up this weekend. couldn't find the second system behind it though. Gfs has it stayling clear of the coast then heading into the cyclone graveyard (between aus and nz) hope it dose stay clear as the models say. most of nsw isnt built for a tropical low sitting very close to the coast if worse comes to worse
  11. I have only been kayaking for about a year now. would be keen to go offshore one day for that big king. i usually spend my time around port hacking and botany bay.
  12. nice mixed bag indeed how do u cook your trevs?, cooked one up awhile ago and it was meh. good fighters though. yeah mozzies were bad the other day aswell, i wonder why. do you drop your yakkas to the bottom and give them a few cranks up and how did u catch the pillies? always wanted to catch them
  13. I do keep the occasional fish when i need one or a few, i don't like freezing fish for a period of time and will only keep a decent fish if i'm going to eat it that night or the following or while camping on a beach down the coast we will eat pretty much anything we catch that's legal almost straight away! Fishing for me is mostly for the fun of getting out there, being on the water relaxing while playing music quietly in the background & being out there with friends and family when they are free of work. I personally see buying decent gear, boats/kayaks, petrol for travel etc well worth the money. catching nice fish, being out on the water and leaving stress at work and anything else behind and purely relaxing, even if no fish are caught. I am very picky with fish and only eat a select few like flounder, flatties, whiting and the occasional kingie & bream if i really feel like a feed. But ay they say its all in the way its cooked. I rarely buy fish aswell. Very thin indeed, they glide through the water doing circles when fighting. thought it was a cobia when i first had it on the surface, yet to catch one of them. would've been a big shark as the remora was 40 odd cm long, didn't measure it and they are hard to remove once they suck onto the boat. no idea what it would've been stuck to. i caught it 2 meters away from the kayak only 500mm below the surface....
  14. wow! great session 7 jewies.. wow! would've been fun on light gear grand kids will be hooked for life now!
  15. Nah, let it go for someone else to catch I did think that when i caught it and said to myself i hope you uber isnt around anywhere haha
