    Sydney harbour squid and kings

    Went to sydney harbour today for some kings and we did ok. We started the day of fishing for squid and got one and the fishing was slow. About 1hr later it started pissing down rain but suprisingly we got three squid in the matter of 30min at manly, we also tried for yakkas on a sabiki rig and didnt catch anything. It was still pouring so we left and got out of the rain(kinda). After that we went camp cove and caught three more live squid in the matter of 3mins . We caught 7 live squid at this point and we still had about 6 to 8 dead squid so we had plenty of bait and we headed to north head as people have caught 30kg plus kingfish there so we got there and we instanly dropped a squid in 25metres of water. We rigged the squid with one treble hook and a single j hook. 10 mins later we left as it got rougher and our squid was gone. We headed to the cliffton gardens in search of the kings. We hooked up straight away with a strip bait as i wanted to have a challenge on the lighter setup. I ended up catching a rat about 63cm then let it go. My mate hooked up after that and another 60cm rat, released then bang the saragosa starts screaming and another hard fighting rat and my brother got that one. The bite slowed down but my dad dropped the whole squid down deep and straight away there was a hit, the saragosa was max drag and it was still pulling, had to be a metre plus king. My dad was even strugling to lift the rod up, but then the line got caught in the motor and the line goes slack, lost it. After that we caught a few more rats and the wind picked up so we went to get the crab pots back and called it a day. In one there was snapper and a blue swimmer crab, the other one was 2 big blue swimmer crabs.

    Identify this fish!

    Hey mate do you want to fish landbased or boat because sydney harbour and botany bay are good at both as they have a good population of fish and sydney harbour has over 300 species of fish.

    Sydney harbour squid

    Went to sydney harbour today for some squid and kingies (we didnt catch any kings😢). We went to shark island twice and the first time my brother and i both caught squid. I caught a squid about 20cm and my brother caught a 10cm squid it was 7:30 in the morning and it was middle of the tide. We fished for squid for 3 more hours and caught 6 other baby squid, nice live bait size. We caught most of them at shark island and near the rocks in 1-2 metres of water. 30mins later it was high tide and we headed to the kingfish spot. It was a bit tough getting there though because it was the sydney to hobart race and every time a boat came past us the waves would get bigger and it was more difficult to fish. So we got there and dropped the anchor in 36.9metres of water. About 10mins later i started felling like i needed to spew so we tried to head back but the anchor was stuck on a rock so my dad had to cut it. There goes $370 down the drain. Then we headed back to rose bay boat ramp and my dad said i felt sick cause i didnt have much water or fluids and the boat kept on rocking side to side. Btw im a kid hense why i mentioned "my dad" so many times.
