  1. All of the time, effort, money spent is finally beginning to pay off. I would like to thank all the informative responses from everyone especially Derek! Finally catching fish well over 25cm, the only thing that’s 25cm is the smile on my face
  2. I managed to log back on after a while haha, just sent him a pm!
  3. Thanks for the info it really helps. Can you recommend me a few lures and hook/sinker size that you personally had success with in that location? I want to maximise my chances by imitating what you found success in.
  4. I’ve tried it but the damn pufferfish keep taking chunks out the plastic and the tail gets left motionless. I’d end up changing plastic every 3-5 casts which is a pain. Do you have any advice on how to catch the flatties and what sort of retrieve works best on high and low tide?
  5. The worst feeling is when you see someone next to you land a big one. Happened twice in the same week. One bloke caught a 6kg Jewie and another day this guy caught a kingfish about 10 metres away from him on plain old prawns!
  6. Hi guys, I’ve been fishing for a while now but I seem to only catch smallies like bream, yakka, tailor. I’ve never caught a fish past 25cm. I’ve tried to target bigger fish by using lures and fresh bait with the appropriate hook and sinker but sadly with no luck. I’ve fished many places around the harbour and parra river both day and night in between tidal changes and I’m left empty handed. I’m sure some of you know how frustrating it is to dream of catching that one big fish for years and years pouring all your money on bait,tackle,lures excited to go fishing for a big one then coming home with nothing but frustration. I keep telling myself to be patient because I may catch a big one next time, and the next, then the next.... it’s been about 3-4 years since I’ve had this mission, so either the big fishes are lesbian, or I’m doing something wrong. I might be coming off as a bit stubborn but I hope you understand my despair. If someone with experience can take me on a fishing trip and teach me the right things to do it’d be greatly appreciated. Don’t need to catch fish, the knowledge and techniques will be plenty.
  7. Anyone had any success in Bayview Park? I live 5mins away so I’ve been fishing there quite regularly. I’ve used a variety of methods like chicken, prawns, yakka, various lures, fishing in between tide changes day&night . However I’ve only landed very few smallies and none other. It seems like only baby fish are around the area or either I’m doing something wrong. What are your thoughts?
  8. Names matt as well haha nice to meet ya. I’m 22 living near Strathfield and would love to join in as I’ve never been boat fishing before. Only fished off warfs and jetty’s so would love the experience. My numbers 0451163997
