  1. Hit Lake Illawarra yesterday morning on the top of the high tide, chasing flathead on the flats. I threw plastics around for most of the session without a touch.... I threw on a Daiwa double clutch 95mm and caught 3 within 45min. Biggest going 52cm. Really enjoyed the hit on the hard bodies, so much more aggressive. A pain getting the treble hooks out though. I just bought the MMD whiting glide bait and will be throwing that next weekend hoping for a croc!
  2. Great report! Looks like you had an awesome day on the water.
  3. Sounds like a great afternoon! That is what it’s all about. Watching the kids catch fish is as good as it gets.
  4. Awesome fish! I believe it put up a hard fight, look at the bloody thing it’s a big unit!
  5. I wish mate would love to get them close to home. I was north of Wollongong
  6. Decided to hit one of the local beaches for a Jewfish session. Chasing these fish hasn't been easy for me, many fishless nights but last night paid off and all the hard work was worth it. Started the night collecting fresh Yakkas and aimed to be at the beach by 9:30pm to fish up to the high tide at 11:45pm. Arrived at the beach and we had it all to ourselves and the conditions were perfect! set the two out fits - Penn Slammer 9500 spooled with 40lb mono 60lb leader - 12 foot Penn rod & a Penn spinnfisher 8500 spooled with 20lb mono and 30lb leader both snell rigged. I use the 40lb o
  7. That’s fishing though isn’t it! Always devastating losing a good fish. The flatty I got headed for the weed pretty quick in the fight I could feel it rubbing through it...
  8. Can’t beat a day on the water with a mate, even better when you land a few fish.
  9. Shimano Raider 722 - 1-4kg Stradic - 8lb braid
  10. Been chasing Flathead on the flats on the night tide and it’s been very productive on the Zman 4inch minnow. Last weekends session got a 50cm , 60cm and a 70cm in a 1 hour session had to leave due to work. The 70cm put up the best fight I have ever had from a flathead, they fight hard in the shallow water on lures. Check out the fight on my YouTube link https://youtu.be/tucTqgCjNoc (warning language alert on video)
  11. Cheers mate, got the Jew at Corrimal beach.
  12. Thanks mate. Honestly on and off for years but for the last 6 months I have dedicated 90% of our fishing to Jews and I generally would fish once or twice a week, got plenty of by catch in those times. Happy with the result last night though and i have learnt every trip. Been using live and fresh bait for about 2 months, made all the difference.
  13. Yakka was whole, i have tried butterflied off the beach but they always end up a mess.
  14. Nice mate, cant beat fishing with kids, we haven't fished that spot yet might have to give it a crack.
  15. Me and my son have been chasing a jew for a while now and last night it all came together. A good high tide was at 8:45pm so we planned to be on the beach at 7pm, collected fresh Yakkas from Kiama harbour and headed up to the beach. Using 30 pound fluorocarbon leader with 2 snelled hook rig, we threw a whole yakka out and boom first cast my son nailed his first jew, great fight too. This will be a night we will never forget, we have both spent many nights chasing a jew coming home empty handed, but now all feels worth it.
