  1. Hey all, im looking to rent a boat from the como marina and was wondering where i should fish and what rig for bread/butter species.

    Would you report?

    Id agree with Derek, i dont think you should keep undersize fish and id say "oh you know that looks abit small i think the limit on them is X" but i wouldnt go to the extent of reporting them.
  3. Hey all, im looking for a charter in sydney that takes takes single spots, every one I've seen takes group bookings.
  4. Had to subscribe to read the article so i didnt read, but as a guess maby it is good that the fish are being caught multiple times as they are alive and getting the chance to grow larger, Thus breeding and have more baby kingies! The issue with them i think is that due to the legal limit being 65cm (NSW) that some people will take fish under that length because they think its big, when the fact is that even though it is bigger than bream, trevally, tailor etc it still hasnt spawned and wont get the chance.
  5. Hey all, im planning to do some beach fishing in botany bay and keep finding the recommended rig is a paternosta but my bait line is always getting tangled around the line going to my sinker. How long should the difference be? Im using 2 hooks. Whats another good rig for the beach?
  6. Hey there everyone, im looking for a land based spot to throw some lures for kingfish in the harbour since i hear there are heaps! Im not familiar with the area and was wondering if anyone can recommend spots preferably on the south side
  7. Hey there everyone, I have been told to fish Ramsgate beach for whiting, the issue is i find lots and lots and lots of small ones. They will follow the bait all the way to shore till about a meter. I cant seem to find any legal ones, are they mixed in with the small ones or do i need to cast further out, closer or use a different technique? Currently using a long shank hook, 50cm to a swivel and a small sinker.
  8. Love how tough they are, they arnt ripped off like prawns are
  9. Update - after work last night i went to a fresh fish shop at the local shopping centre and picked up a squid tube, only $3 so alot cheaper than i thought. Went out today using strips and got heaps of bites and a small flathead, nothing big but definitely saw a difference
  10. The money is fine but time, id be going too far out of the way, ill try some squid from the shops this weekend
  11. I only fish from land in botany bay so live yakkas arnt the best bait besides the odd big flathead, ill give strips a go next time though!
  12. Oh wow, ive heard of white spot but didnt realize that dead or human grade prawns were still able to spread it
  13. hey there everyone, Im a guy who will go to the servo and buy a pack of frozen prawns to fish with, sometimes i use them all, other times i freeze the rest for next trip. Now im thinking, is fresh best when it comes to bait or the older and smellier the better? I have used prawns all my life but was thinking is it worth swapping to pilchard cubes or squid, this is all from the servo. Or should i pick up the cheapest prawns i can find from coles/woolies and use them. Im basically looking to get more fish since its quite common to go out and not have a bite or get baby bream, toadies or yakkas. I mention pilchard but everytime i use them when i cast out (using a long rod from shore) they fall off the hook. So this made me think servo squid but it looks horrible, even for a fish. Any recommendation guys? Im using a running sinker, 50cm to a swivel for bream, trevally, whiting or flathead. Depending on the day ill use circle hooks but sometimes long shanks keep prawns on better.
  14. Ive never fished groynes, should i cast into the bay, off the sides or just a few metres out?
  15. Hey all, im looking for some land based fishing spots around botany bay. Im just looking for common fish, bream, flathead, trevally and anything else that will eat a prawn or pillie. I have fished a jetty next to capt cook bridge but besides yakkas there is nothing you can take home
