    Beach Fishing - Help Required!

    Hi Guys, I've been fishing for the last year from wharfs and easy land based areas in the harbour areas and have had some good success and learnt a ton in that time period, however this weekend after long deliberation myself and my mate have decided to go to the northern beaches to have a fish on the beach itself, e.g Dee-why. 1. Can anyone advise a good decent spot to head to 2. Best rig setups and bait to use. 3. Low or high tide preferences ? My outfits for the weekend. Reel: Shimano Stella FJ 5000 (30lb Braid / 50lb Leader) Rod: Daiwa Sandstorm 10'6 (6-12kg) Reel: Shimano Bait Runner 6000D (30lb Braid / 50lb Leader) Rod: Shimano Aerowave Graphite Surf 10ft 5-8kg Reel: Diawa BG 2500 (10lb braid / 20lb Leader) Rod: Crucis 7ft (2-5kg) (Used catching my bait) I would like to thank everyone in advance for your help and advise!!!

    @PaddyT Hey Mate, After speaking to a few people they have told me the same thing, I'm looking for fish that's a rather good battle and loves a live bait (Yakka) - recommended any ?

    Fish ID ?? (Numbfish)

    Hey guys, put a line out last night and must of snagged this thing as I was doing my jig. Any idea on what it was? I didn't touch it at all just used plyers to get the hooks out.

    Chasing Kings (Help) - North Sydney

    Hey Guys, I'm based out of neutral bay and have been really wanting to chase some Kings. (LANDBASED) I have tried Pillies and a few other bait but realised where l have been going there is a fair few Yakkas. I wanted to know if anyone had ANY great advice on what is the best Rigs / Bait setup to chase them. eg - how to hook a Yakka correctly and what method to use to maximise the length of there life in the water swimming around I really want to land a few good ones before l move on to targeting my next fish. Any advice is greatly appreciated - If you would like to get together and chase a few Kings with me please do so l would love the company!

    Neutral Bay Action (LRG AUS Salmon)

    Hey Guys!!! Last night l went out for a fish around the Neutral Bay Area, I grabbed a bunch of frozen Pillies & Prawns from the servo and made my way down. l was lucky enough to have @DerekD come down and show me a few good tricks, from squidling basics to just casting techniques... WOW he knows a lot!!! On arriving we setup and got into a bit of squidling after no success for the first 15-20mins we put that aside to get the other rods setup and put some bait out there, I simply cut the tails off the pillies put a decent hook through and loop it so it doesn't come off with only a little nibble!! After 1 hour Derek noticed my large rod had some movement, I grabbed it and got anot even five seconds later BOOM WE WERE ON!!! The fish gave the line a great little screaming noise but after 15 mins we bought it in and @DerekD got the salmon in the net for me! YES FIRST EVER SALMON!! "Swallowed the how rig" After measuring it for a second time at home by laying it flat over the tape it broke the 60cm mark!!!!! Yes I couldn't wipe the smile of my face as you can see below. On the way out I noticed some bream and quickly dropped a line it and they had a look but just simply weren't taking the bait, the Mrs started to call the phone and yes that meant TIME TO GET MYSELF HOME All in all was a fantastic achievement and defiantly a PB for my land base fishing ***Big Thankyou to @DerekD For coming down and helping me through he evening*** Gear: 1.) (Running sinker method) Rod: Aerowave 9ft Carbon Reel: Shimano Baitrunner 6000D Line: 14lb 2.) (Running sinker method) Rod: Shimano Beastmaster Reel: Abu Garcia Line: 8lb 1.)

    Allow Me To Introduce Myself

    Yeah I did mate, unfortunately is all topics from 2009 or 2006, I know most prob not much would change but wasn't from these areas originally and wasn't into to fishing at a early age (no one showed me or made the effort to teach me) Just wanted some recent information on the area but lucky enough l have someone with a lot of experience coming down to shed some light with me this evening!
