  1. Went down to Ramsgate Beach after lunch. After picking up some string weed at Tonbridge St nearby, it is already 1pm. It is the peak of high tide hence groyen choice is limited. My first catch is my PB smallest fish ever caught. Followed by 2 blackfishes 29cm and 33cm, then later a surprise 43cm. The 'go home' phone alarm ring at 4pm. As i almost finish cleaning all the fishes, caught a further 23cm blackfish which just in time to make the photo shot and then release back in the water right away. Blackfishes caught from Big to Small: 43cm, 33cm, 29cm and 23cm
  2. Normally steam them but this time fillet and deep fried along with the bigger blackfish then throw them into the freezer in sealed bag. Not daring enough to eat raw(sashimi probably best) as it is still too close to sydney harbour. Its fun to catch but not as good eating as blackfish cooked.
  3. Targeting Trevally for a change today. Arrived at Ramsgate Beach at noon. No fishos is around. Slowly burley up with bread soup, using small pieces of yakka as bait but no take until 4pm. Caught 2 trevally just legal. Great fight and great fun. Even though i specifically targeting Trevally, i still put out a blackfish rod as my backup plan. Didn't bring with me any stringy weed, just savage what is on the rock at the groyne. At around 3:30pm, i went back to my car to get my headlamp in case i fish into the dark. And when i got back, a 30cm blackfish hooked itself on my blackfish
  4. I went again the next day. After a quick stop to Coles, i arrived at 11am again. Wow again, i am the only one fishing there contrary to the day before. Other fisho start turning up at about 3pm but still not many. As i get my blackfish rods ready, the water right next to me(less than 5m away) boiled up with a school of tailor/kingies/salmon? attacking bait fish on the surface. I dropped everything and jump right to my lure rod. It took me 30 second to setup the lure and ready to cast but the fish are gone just quickly as they appeared! Too slow:( And that is the highlight of my day. A few
  5. Nice weather virtually zero wind so decided to give Ramsgate Beach Flathead a go. Had a big brunch and got to Ramsgate Beach at around 11am. Wow. So many people fishing. Of the 4 groynes nearby, 3 are occupied. There are at least 3 fisho flicking their SP while walking along the beach. And there are 3 more different groups of people staking their beach rods along the beach.. at least 12 rods side by side. The plan is hopping between groynes chasing flathead using SP but at the same time stake out my blackfish rods to see if there is any bites. Not much luck with the S
  6. No.no. that time i was fishing for kingies with the 25lbs line over at Port Kembla. Actually it was 35lbs line but i doubt that though as i bought it cheap online. With blackfish, i use 8lbs flurocarbon leader max and up to 15lbs as main. I did managed to pull in a 45cm lizard with this outfit. I still wonder what snapped my line... always the one that got away:)
  7. Thanks. I panic:( That reminded me one time, my reel took off like no tomorrow and i only apply enough drag so it won't break the line(25lbs) and at the end, i ran out of line... every time is a learning experience.
  8. Definitely good weed at the jetty but they won't last as they are too easily accessible to the blackfish and now to us. LOL. I also run around a bit looking for weed now-a-day especially during winter. Collect a large batch and they should last you a week. I found stringy weed is easier to keep than cabbage weed. But then fresh one is always better than staled one, that is probably what help you out-fish the person standing next to you. Maroubra Beach (Google map "-33.957066, 151.263816"). Mainly cabbage weed and almost always available. Sometime stringy weed can also be found. This
  9. Now you mentioned it, that could have been a flathead that snapped my line. Cheers.
  10. Intends to fish the last 2 days but suddenly the wind speed went up hence didn't get to go until today. Wake up early to pickup some weed but had to wait til 6:30am when there is enough light to see. Which means i miss out the possible early tailor session:( I could use my headlight to see but it may upset some people living nearby. I guess i just had to make a point to get the weed a day early. Got to Ramsgate Beach at around 7:30am but had to first goes to Coles to buy some more toilet paper before the second wave of the panic-buy hit and not to mention Quilton 36pack is on special this
  11. While my girlfriend and her friend doing baywalk, i fish at mine usual spot at Ramsgate Beach. We arrived at Ramsgate Beach at around 3:30pm. The girls went out to the groyne with me for a bit just to take some selfies and then left me alone to do my fishing. There are already 2 person there, hasn't started long either and not a bite yet. One is using bread to target trevally and another using prawns n pilchards to targeting whatever comes along. I am not at my usual spot as it is first come first serve rules, i had to burley heavily hoping to bring the blackfish to where i am. Nothing fo
  12. Meant to goes on Tuesday as the condition are perfect but didn't due to work commitment. Then windy and raining the next day, no go either. Today's condition isn't perfect but forced myself to go out to get some sun the least. Still got the old weed meant for Tuesday but decided to get some fresh one and use the old weed for burley. Arrived at Ramsgate Beach at noon and was surprised that beach side parking area were now opened. Low wind but blew in from the ocean usually meant everything shut down from past experiences. And exactly that, not a single bite from blackfish, bait fish or th
  13. Still couldn't get out of bed early as planned because of the cold weather. Missed the morning session but manged to get out after a nice lunch. After picking some weed (which is very scarce now because of the cold weather) and arrived at Ramsgate Beach at around 2pm. Beach banned had lifted but the beach front parking areas are still closed. A bit of extra driving to street park across the road. The weather is very nice. Nice and warm just so good to be out. Perfect wind condition, low wind and blowing outward. Low tide as expected, probably not as productive. And this is the cost of no
