  1. Hey Everyone, Just wanted to ask if anyone has heard any whispers about when the bluefin might turn up around Sydney this year? I've seen some barrels on FB taken off Tasmania, wondering if the south coast NSW guys have seen any, or if anyone has a prediction for when they might make their way up the coast this year? Cheers, Hamstr

    Cheers for the report Rick! Unfortunate the conditions and fish didn't play ball on this occasion , but at least you got out there and had a good crack! And a few bream for dinner is a good consolation prize to me.
  3. Congrats on your first marlin mate! All the more sweet that you managed it on a Stella!! What were the water conditions like?
  4. Solid Fish there mate I bet they stretched the arms!!! Those are some very pretty jigs! Cheers for the intel.
  5. Not a bad day out at all!! Shame about the lack of marlin, but the mako and PB dolly would have been good fun! Cheers for the report.
  6. Nice one Swordy! Some good size Kings there! Happy Dayz
  7. Great session! Gotta be happy with those results! Were you near the mouth of the river? Or further upstream? Water looks very brown...
  8. Hello Raiders, I'm a long time reader and first time poster to this awesome forum, even before becoming a member I have been reading all of your wonderful posts for years, and am already thankful to everyone on here for all the information that you provide to each other and me! That brings me to the point of my post, I am planning a trip up to SWR for the Easter long weekend, I've been up there once before and had a blast catching kingys, dollies and mack tuna. Mainly fishing around Fish Rock and a few reefs. Sorry I should mention I have a 7m centre console, tri-hull, Eagle Ray Boat. This time I have significantly beefed up my gear (Tiagra and Makiara)and had my sights set on the "big ones" Marlin and Tuna. Haha Now I'm relatively new to game-fishing so I am yet to catch one of these beasts (I did manage to hook a small black marlin off Sydney, on my kingfish gear 50lbs braid and 50lbs leader, which lasted all of about 20 seconds, till the fish jumped and spat the hook!) But I figured SWR is the closest place to the shelf so I'd just zoom out to the shelf and try trolling around some lures and see what happens. It can't be much more complicated then that? Right?? Hahaha I'm sure there is ALOT more I have to learn about this type of fishing. So if any raiders have any advice regarding catching Tuna or Marlin, particularly at SWR I would be really grateful. Thanks Everyone! Tight Linez!
