Long time reader but never posted before.
Tuesday was a great day for me. Purchased a new Daiwa Seajigger 325M rod and a Daiwa Saltist 4500 Ltd reel. Great setup and can't wait to catch something massive on it.
Anyway, went to Coalcliff rocks on Tuesday. Got there around 3pm and low tide was expected at 5:30pm.
Water was pretty high on the rocks and two fishermen allowed me to share the ledge with them, because there were no dry ledges when i got there.
Decided to try trusty Knight 65g. Made couple of casts but nothing was biting. After 30min I got one barracuda. These things are everywhere around sydney.
There were couple of lobster pots 3-5 meter away from the ledge and I got snagged. Anyways lost the good old Knight, but because the setup was new with 50lb line I almost got the lobster pot out of the water.
After re-rigging i have put Rapala SXR12 in minnow colour. Fiirst cast and I got another Barracuda, but while lifting I lost it. They are hard to set the hooks on properly.
Spend another 2 hours trying all kinds of lures (Metals, Hard bodies, Soft plastics) but nothing was biting.
The fisherman next to me got couple of sharks on pilchards and a good sized bream.
Looks like the water is still too cold.
