  1. Does anyone know anything about this Junior Capstan 14 fishing reel? It was my grandfather’s and my first reel as a kid. I got some good use from it and it still works.
  2. Hey guys, I’ve been doing a bit of fishing around The Rip Bridge Central Coast where I’m from. Every time I see people with light gear and their baits are probably not even hitting the bottom. Would the best rig for there be similar to what people use on The Hawkesbury for jewfish etc? As the current runs hard through there like in the Hawkesbury.

    Yeah Volitan Iron Ladder Beach I think. There are rocks there though so it might actually be Little Box Head

    Hey guys, I had a bit of trouble getting squid on my attempt for catching a jewfish, so I tried getting yakkas. I went near ladders on the Central Coast about 11am and didn’t get anything. Anyone have any tips? I used bread and tuna oil as burley and a small unweighted hook on a handline with a piece of prawn. I haven’t done this for a long time and previously did it in a mates boat and found it really easy. Do you need to go really early before the sun comes up?

    Do you catch jewfish on the Coles squid?

    Fresh Squid?

    Awesome thanks mate
  7. Hey guys I was just wondering if anyone knows of a good shop I can get fresh squid from around Gosford, Woy Woy area? I know you guys are going to tell me to catch it, but I never seem to be able to get them.
  8. No I didn’t marks before and I’ve only ever caught small soapies.
  9. Hey guys I’ve see a few people catching Jews in the Hawkesbury. I’ve done it in the past and keen to get back into it. I’ve got 2 overhead rods I use for trolling for kings I might use that already has 30 pound Berkeley Big Game mono in blue. My question is would this line be ok for this type of application? I’m going to attach Black Magic fluorocarbon leader in 50 pound. I’m going to use butterfly yellowtail. Any tips GPS marks would also be useful?
  10. I’ve been using this knot for bait rigs for years. I was shown how to tie it by my uncle who got me into fishing. I used it yesterday for plastics I think it worked well and I’m going to stick with it.
