  1. Always wanted to name a boat WET DREAM
  2. Maybe we should have some ort of cobia comp on lake mac?? never caught one or seen one in lake mac and i live on it at Belmont, that post on Fishbrain does say Belmont Lagoon though, which everyone knows the onl thing you catch in there is the Lochness Monster.
  3. good looking reds mate, bet it was a good feed.
  4. G'day all, been probably close to 6 months if not more of me being regularly active on here, I have been getting out fishing of night on the way up home to Lake Mac, still sussing out different little spots around my side of the lake (Belmont) but recently been starting in all the little inlets on the Morriset side. What I have been doing in all this time since I last posted a fishing report or even the infamous kingy's on the reef vid and write up you may ask?? Well, my daughter's now 4, my son 7 this year and been getting into the 4wding a lot more. almost every weekend consists of some sort of 4by trip with my little fam and my brother and mates. Anyway been doing a bit of filming here and there, out of the back of the landcruiser getting back into night fishing and only using lures or plastics to see how we go of a night in the lake mac region, not much luck so far, and when I have had luck of course the camera has been off or the phone has died. So here is the hopeful start of a mini series, Night Sessions proudly staring a hairy grizzly dread headed looking bum (me) and my mate fluffy. check out the links here, give us a like and follow and hopefully a lot more videos to come, in between working in a 4wd shop in Syd and travelling back and forth to Belmont plus the added fun of 2 kids in the mix.

  5. @Scratchie you still got some up your way mate? im up your way almost full time nowadays.
  6. Getting out on the water and wetting a line regardless of a fish or not.....every day's a good day for fishing
  7. I'd definitely be going with the stradic and although i do support the view of other people who say you can still catch a fish with a cheap reel, with finesse fishing its all about the smoothness, good choice on the stradic, before reading through i was going to comment and tell you to go with some sort of shimano, a stradic or ultegra, even a sedona, all decently smooth reels and good for that finesse fishing, even if its just chasing bass or its your go to light setup.
  8. Hey all, been more than a long time since last posting on here, Changed jobs, moved around and haven't been able to get upto much fishing lately or cant even remember when the last creek carp sesh was, been out a couple of times on the big rig boat but nothing worth even videoing nor even taking photos of, So been lately just getting my bro's 4by ready for trips and we been doing couple of test nights locally along with making sure everything is right, Here's my latest vid and some piccys of the weekend just gone, went to Newnes (lithgow NSW), checked out Lost City, and the infamous Spanish Steps.

  11. Started out Early Saturday morning Long Weekend, Put the boat in at Tunks at around 5/6ish, After we tied up all the rods we started chasing around for bait, we tried middle harbour and only managed to get one squid, we then went over to little manly, and started to get a decent amount of yakkas, well atleast enough to give us some sort of bait for the trip, we already had some decent cuttlefish on board from the last outing on the boat provided by fluffy, We hit up the North Head, and seemed every man and his dog were out doing the same thing, setting up the bombs, trawling around to try and get onto the kings, but as the same as us, not much luck, we headed straight upto Long reef, got there and plenty of marks on the sounder, sweet, then nothing, saw a couple of other guys there too, they were getting on but we weren't, Alright time to change tactics, started using the cuttlefish, and fluffy strted to get some hits, we chucked out a yakka, not much interest untill much later. We had a decent amount of fun trolling and drifting around the reef, unfortunately where we wanted to go there was a "Pro Dive" boat there, so no go to our usual kingy spot. We worked around this kept using the bait and ended up closer in than we thought, worked out very nicely, it was now getting on in the day mabe around the 3/4 O'clock mark, starting coming on decently, then we ran out of bait, Anthony chucked on a 300g jig, and holy sheeeps, did a kingy take it, we had now used all the bait and light was starting to get dim, we were looking back at the land and it was now just a nice sunset, as we drifted over these marks, each time we dropped a decent jig they went for it, it was insane, myself never catching kingy's or atleast any size to write home about, was catching stonkers on Lures, not bait, fricken lures, it was one of the best days and sessions, we were definately all buggered by the time we got back to Tunk's, My Pb for the Day was 82, and i believe on the Boat was 90/91 mark, still didnt get that elusive 1m but we will get there one day Anyway guys thats just a quick report, ill let the pics and vid do the talking Vid Link : Kings Of The Reef Squ!rt - FSF Adventures.
  12. Plenty of Kings at Long Reef Saturday arvo, pulled in close to 20/30 on stickbaits on sunset.
  13. Depends on where your going fishing i guess, flick N fish at thorneigh sells bait but havent been there in years so couldn't tell ya.
  14. i have caught one or two but very long hours, we used corn, your best bet if you wanna catch carp and other local fish is going into parra or more out towards the lakes like Lake woodcroft, parra lake reserve etc. i fish these areas reguarly along with some of the other creeks, parra river been producing the goods of decent sized carp as of late.
  15. im the same @DerekD siennas, sedonas and even higher on the food chain like stella, but if your gonna be using a reel just for landbased for carp or bream/flathead etc with a 1-3kg rod i don't see the need to spend more than a $55 sienna that will do the job, personally i like the sedona over the sienna more, but the new sienna are pretty nice and feel fairly smooth.
