  1. Good job maintaining commentary as you were falling. What a professional. hahaha.
  2. Hi guys, My name is Stephen. Looking to do some rock fishing anywhere in Sydney (I live in Rockdale. Have own car). I am very interested in catching Black Drummer. I watched Scotty Lyon's videos on YouTube to get into fishing, and drummers look like great fun to catch. However, If there are no one keen for Black Drummer, I'd be happy to target something else and learn more about rock fishing safety. I've also asked around for some info on this forum on how to catch Black Drummer. I have come up empty on a few occasions in a few places and would like to see what I am doing wrong. I've been rock fishing a few times in Kurnell with the old man. But we are both pretty new to rock fishing. We follow safety instructions and check the weather/swell beforehand. But I am still a bit scared and a bit tense when rock fishing. It would be good to go with someone more seasoned to learn about how to do it safely. I will have a lot of free time this week/next week (on a study vacation before exams). I have life vest and rock cleats. I have some fishing gear and willing to buy extra rig items. Let me know, thanks.
  3. Hi Keith. Good job! The guide on catching black fish by Robert in the "Fishing Chat" sub forum says blackfish will take seaweed at night. I tried this once, but these two older fishermen started cracking up when I told them. They didn't think it was a good idea. So I don't know what to think
  4. Thanks guys. Appreciate it. It was indeed my first fish on a lure. @nbdshroom Thanks for your YouTube videos. You actually told me how to do a basic retrieve and to learn to double uni knot in the comments section of one of your Cook River videos.
  5. Thanks for the reply. It is my first time in the area, so I will explore more of it next time. Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, Shroom seems to know what he is doing. I love watching his YT videos. It seems like he really enjoys fishing. Another fisherman also told me that there were jewfish in the area. However, I don't really have the gear or know how to target those at the moment. But I am looking forward to catching a few Bream and Flathead. I will keep an eye on that website. Thanks.
  6. Hi, this is my first fish report. I fished the airport side of Cooks River from 4PM-6PM today. I was casting only about 10m out from the land. It was my first time fishing using a soft plastic. There is a lot of places to cast from along the river, but most places require you to step in some mud to get close enough. I was inspired to fish Cooks River and using soft plastic by watching Shroom's videos on YT. I landed an awesome Flathead about 15mins in. I didn't get to measure it, but it was about 40-45cm. It was released as i'm told you shouldn't eat anything from Cooks River. I had some other "bites", but did not catch anything else. I used the Zman Grub 2.5" in Watermelon Red. Thanks
  7. Thanks for letting me come a long. I learnt a lot and enjoyed the day. Thanks. By the way, did you see the Trevally fisherman who came after us catch anything?
  8. Hi @LandBasedKeith, I live around the area (Rockdale) and I am interested in fishing for blackfish. Are the string seaweed at every groyne in Ramsgate or is there a particular groyne? I also tried using prawn and pilchard at high tide in ramsgate last week and didnt get any bites. Do you know if any other species are in Ramsgate? Thanks.
  9. Thanks for your replies Wazatherfisherman and noelm. @noelm I try to boil green prawns, I hear that kills the virus. I will try gathering cungie. Do cungies grow in rivers and bays or only on ocean rocks? I live near botany bay so that would be the first place I look. I don't know how to look for deeper water. Is it related to looking at the pattern of the wash? @wazatherfisherman thanks for the detailed response. I'll probably print it so I can read it all. I just bought a lifejacket and attached rock plates to my shoes. The ocean scares me, so I wear them all the time when rock fishing. I will look into getting cungie to use as bait. I want to ask how long would the cungie last in the freezer the salting technique? And what other fish might I encounter with cungie apart from drummer? I've heard what you say about having the hook 1m off the bottom of the sea floor. How do you judge the depth? Is it just trial and error and seeing at what depth you get snagged? Thanks for the tips about rig setup. I'm excited to try out the spot you mentioned in the Royal National Park. Too bad it looks like bad conditions tomorrow or else I was going to head to the Royal National Park or Dobroyd Head. Looks like the East South swell will make both places dangerous.
  10. Thanks KoalaBoi. I have caught some Luderick near Potters Point in Kurnell and they have the types of rock platforms that you mentioned. That gives me some confidence there might be Drummer there as well.
