  1. Those are some cracker squid. Great job.
  2. Cheers mate. I'm sure you'll be able to get amongst them sooner or later.
  3. Beautiful photos mate. The water and conditions look magical as well.
  4. That's a great size. Well done.
  5. Thanks mate, I'll take a look at their reports and posts for more info. Thanks Yowie, I'll keep that in mind and will try my luck.
  6. Great haul. Seems like you'll have dinner sorted out for the next month!
  7. Hey guys, Given the conditions tomorrow, I will be heading down to Port Hacking for the first time. I'm just looking for some info as to what I can expect from the area as well as where about's I should actually fish. I was mainly wondering if the main method was live baiting? As I am usually out on Botany Bay, and live baiting is what usually is done. Cheers.
  8. Thanks Richard, I'll keep that in mind.
  9. Thanks for the info, Jocler. I will give Cruwee Cove a go the next time i'm out there. Cheers mate. The bombora off of bare island does seem quite dangerous. And it's scary how many boats I often see sitting right in front of the bombora, even when the swell is large. Thanks for the info Rob. The no action on the retrieval is new to me, i'll definitely try it on my next trip out. Cheers Jonno, I'll take a look at his videos.
  10. Thanks for the info. I'll take a look at the other topics for more information. Thanks heaps Welster. I'll take all of this on board and will try them out on my next trip out.
  11. Hi Kingie Chaser, Thanks for the help. Jenno managed to get some huge ones! The squid really do seem to pop up anywhere. I saw one chasing after my lure while I was flicking it around off Molineux Point. I'll try switching up the colours. I've been mainly sticking to brighter colours, but i'll try out some natural ones on the next trip out. I just wanted to ask if you could help me pinpoint as to where the "mouth of Botany Bay" is? Im assuming it's to the west of Towra point? Or is it around Towra Point? All the best, Kingie chaser.
  12. Hi Welster, Thanks for the reply. The information you offered was terrific. At the moment, I usually dedicate 2 hours purely targeting squid. I often go out with 2 others who are also targeting squid. We usually have one rod each, but don't often leave a rod out the back. As for my technique, I flick the jig out into the general area of the weed beds, letting it sink the the bottom. Once it sinks, I wind it in slowly, occasionally flicking it up twice. I'll definitely try slowing down my wind the next time I get to get out there. When you're looking for squid on the
  13. Hey guys, It's my first post here, so lets hope this goes alright. I've been trying to find some squid in Botany Bay for the past few months with little to no luck. I've tried the weed beds opposite of Captain Cooks Landing, with absolutely no luck. Bumbora point and the rock wall off of the surf club in Yarra Bay have produced some, however on very few occasions. The rock wall opposite the surf club has mainly produced arrow squid for me, whereas Bombora point has produced one calamari. I recently purchased some Yamashita jigs, which are supposedly the best in the game. I have
