  1. planning to head out this weekend and try for kingfish with livies, looking at 12mile and the peak. Any advice would be greatly appreciated TIA
  2. About two months ago i caught my first kingfish on lure, havent visited fishraider for a little so havent posted. Reading @DerekD‘s post about his central coast kings got me fired up again since originally Derek taught me the retrieve for kingfish along with lots of other important info about kingfish which definately helped me with getting this beauty. I was out with two mates and after getting a few flathead, decided to come back inside cos i wasnt feeling too great. Came back into pittwater and fish some pilchards, fish didnt hit so i decided to put on a little lure after seeing some whiteb
  3. Thanks for that Derek, one hell of a read. Great fish there and seems like u had lots of fun. Awesome effort
  4. i own and use a 4000 stradic fk, i usually fish 4-6kg of drag on it. It is rated at 11kg of drag, personally my opinion is that the actual drag system has the ability o produce 11kg of drag. However, the reel cannot handle that, at around 8-9 kg the bail i think would start flipping open. But 4-6kg is plenty for most species inshore species as the ci4 is meant for inshore light game rather than metre kings.
  5. Are they still around or spread out and cleaned up already? Thx
  6. Ye man the reel was so good to catch a fish on. Really put the drag to good use but still need to really test them on hopefully kingies at port stephens this weekend. Does anyone know it they still around or could provide locations thx. Ye man the bonnies busted first around 830-9 and then later at 530. They were caught on a cheap 30g metal. Kingy was just in arvo around 4.
  7. Do u go cg often mate? I fish there frequently and i might have bumped into sometime
  8. A pic of the flatty cause couldn't include it in the main section PS, does anyone know how to rotate the image? Thx
  9. Went with 2 buddies and @Pattherat to his place north of Sydney for a few days of fishing and crabbing. Got there thursday morn and decide to go fishing. I fished plastics while everyone else a mix of bait and plastics. No action on the plastics so decided to help my mates who new with this type of fishing. Had them on a tiny hook with a longshank to try for the numerous dink bream there. To everyones surprise the little bait rod goes off, screaming drag running around the boat into broken branches. The he stops moving, he was proper snagged. Pat smokes in his lure to help me with the fish and
  10. I've caught them at bobbin head on sabikis but only been there once and only time I've really consistently caught alot. Also caught them on sabikis at night in narrabeen lakes. Lots of people catch em on fly since thats their natural diet and also floating bread works apparently. Don't know if I'm any help but if u want any detail I'm here.
  11. When you say the gear doesn't matter there is a lot of truth there, however factoring in the boat and all the tackle that's big bucks. All in all very nice day and great result, I started my fishing with all k-mart gear and still have my pb bream on that stuff.
  12. I'm not familiar with fishing up north but it does look like a GT, the tail and overall shape matches, however all the coloration is different and the eye is very large, looking like a greater trevally caranx sexfasciatus.
  13. 18th December, I decided to spend a day down at clifton to see how the fishing is, what a great choice it was! Got there around 730 to fish the high tide at 830, 1 dink trevs and that was it. Decided to wait it out and fish later into the arvo. Spoke with another kid who was there with who i think is his older brother or friend, pretty serious anglers they were, stella 8000 rigged for livebaits and a sustain for smaller whateverbites. They had live prawns and were pitching em from the jetty and managed a few very nice bream which went back in the drink, one of which went 37. We chatted while t
  14. very nice setup mate! the only thing is that ive have shimano kariki parting, the strength is still the same but just gets annoying when I'm tying knots. See if u have the problem too as u start to wear the line.
