  1. Hi raiders! headed down south and fished off the break wall to wet a line and hopefully get a feed! day started off well with 2 trevally around the 32-35cm mark and a 28cm flounder. lots of decent sized slimey mackerel around which was perfect to keep as strip bait as I’m heading to Jarvis bay in the next few days. fish stopped biting on bait for a while so I decided to throw out a lure, was spinning a metal for a while with no luck and changed to soft plastics. 1 hit for another trevally, 10minutes later another hit for a 55cm salmon. First time actually catching someth
  2. Hi Zoran, apologies i meant not this Monday the following i can see the swell up till next Saturday (I’ll be checking closer to the day) but so far looks good
  3. Hi guys as of September I unfortunately will be working full time lol (coming from a 9 day fortnight) and this coming Monday will be my last Monday off before going back to full time. As such I’ve checked the weather and so far the swell seems very low (0.4-08) over the weekend at port Kembla and up the coast around lion island / barrenjoey im thinking of finally taking the maiden voyage offshore after 1.5 years of having my first boat I own a 2019 5m Stacer bow rider with a 90hp Yamaha. I’ve only ever fished around the Hawkesbury, patonga, lion island south side on a really g
  4. Thanks @Blackfish the tailor is at the bottom of the photo but just under the barracuda there is a yellow fin pike, at least I think it is. I caught one on the hawksbury and wasn’t sure what it was. I found a post on fishraider of someone else catching the same thing and I think the consensus was it was a yellow fin pike Cheers
  5. @kingie chaser thanks Kingie nah definitely not, I’ve heard the cuda and pike can be good bait so I’m going to give it a try on the next trip cheers,
  6. Hi raiders headed out to port Kembla for the very first time. Bit worried since it was my first time and I am relatively new to fishing off a boat (1 year now). Was more of a port Kembla maiden voyage to sus out the facilities and getting use to the area got to the ramp about 6am and it started off slow with only 1 trevally and a lot of undersized snapper moved to a different spot which seemed to produce quite well. Ended up finishing the day with 6 trevally (sized between 30-40cm) 1 Taylor, barracuda and a pike As it was more of a practice day I didn’t pack to
  7. @GoingFishing @noelm thanks guys upon thorough search Through fishraider for barracuta it seems these are not too good to eat
  8. Hi raiders i was fishing at port Kembla the other day and caught this fish below can anyone identify it? I initially thought it was a pike based on the teeth and the body Cheers Jimmy
  9. I got one from a shop, they were only $6 from memory and easy / quick to use
  10. @kingie chaser funnily enough I’ve had more luck towards June/july i always manage a feed of crabs every trip (at least 2-3) but June/July seems to be where I bag out more often than not
  11. @Hamstr thanks :) I always pack the crab pots haha I recently bought a crab pot carry bag from a guy in QLD that makes them. Helps with space saving on the boat and prevents the pots going everywhere very shallow 1.5 - 3meters depth I was placing them at this weekend. Most of the traps which I got 2-3 crabs were about 2m down
  12. Hi raiders Headed up the coast for the weekend and launched at Parsley bay boat ramp to fish Saturday and Sunday. Main aim was to target black fish, did all the hard work collecting weed on the low tide however didn’t get a chance with all the back seat drivers telling me where they “think” the fish is 😂 also I wasn’t too sure about black fish locations in the Hawkesbury so happy to forego Saturday first drift around patonga and found 2 nice size flatties and a 40cm trevally chucked out the witches hats and bagged out on blue swimmer crabs. First time using witches hats
  13. Can anyone find any links to the different rules that apply over Easter as mentioned above? I can only find the usually documentation stating reasons for leaving the house but I can’t find anything re: “local” only travel. need to forward it to some of my fishing mates. Don’t want any fishos getting fined over the long weekend
  14. @antonywardle Really appreciate the offer man! Im not 100% confident in offshore just yet, last week to lion island was my furthest trip out im going to try and head there again this Saturday and fish the south side of the island. I will be there pretty early if its calm, give us a wave if you go bye. I might take you up on the offer in the future if you're still keen Thanks for the tips, i might sus it out and launch from ettalong if its a little closer to Umina than parsley bay Salmon were busting up all over Patonga last week and the week before , plenty of boats casting lures
