  1. Personally I wouldn't look past the Daiwa Baitjunkie 5inch and 7inch jerkshad in a pearl white colour or any sort of natural looking colours. For bonito, i usually go towards a halco 10g metal spinner and retrieve it at a fast wind pace.
  2. Hi All, During the long weekend, me and my family went up to the Hawkesbury River. It was a quiet time, and quite enjoyable. I decided to let out a few lines at night, hoping for a jewie or a decent sized flattie. However, I was rewarded with a strange fish. It looks like a hairtail to me, however some people were saying it is a longfinned eel. Anyone have any suggestions on what it could be. Thanks Aaron
  3. https://www.9news.com.au/national/animal-cruelty-sydney-teen-charged-bird-stabbed-killed/fa54b11b-8ca8-49ba-ac56-b9d59aea12bf Don't know if anyone has seen this yet. Video of 3 people stepping on a cormorant and stabbing it after it got tangled on their line which happened recently in Pier 8 at Darling Harbour. Thankfully the horrible people who performed this act were arrested by the police and brought into custody recently. It is always so sad to know that there are those few fishermen who don't treat wildlife with respect and the care they deserve. Hopefully nothing like this happens again and especially not in Sydney nor Australia. Please share this website so these people can receive justice they deserve Kind regards, Azza_Fishing
  4. Sorry I got it switched up, its 1/4 for flathead and 1/12 for trevally and bream. Don't use 1/4 for bream and trevally. You can also use 1/12 for flathead in the shallows. The holts swim prawns are really good, because they have these little legs at the bottom that swim really well which looks realistic. Here is a video of what it looks like in the water.
  5. For flathead I would recommend the zman grubz but in 3.5inch size and 2.5inch you don't those 40-50cm as often. The colour I would recommend the motor oil colour as those are the best. Another plastic I would also recommend the holts productions prawns. If you are also looking for some prawn soft plastics I would also look at the squidgies prawn wriggler 110mm in black and gold colour. The best plastics would be paddle tails if you are looking to get the big girls. As for bream and trevally they will also take the Zman 2.5inch grubz in motor oil colour. However for kingfish I would recommend the Holts Production swim prawns. (downside is you have to order it online and it sells out pretty quickly). Another lure I would recommend is the daiwa bait junkie 5inch and 7inch jerk shad in pearl white and any natural colours. Jighead sizes for all plastics would depend on the current and depth of the water. For flathead I would recommend a 1/4ounce jig and for bream and trevally I would go for 1/12ounce jig. Those are probably my go to's for plastics, but the range gets bigger one you get into blades, vibes and hard-bodied lures.
  6. Hi Fishraiders, Currently at Sussex inlet near st Georges basin. Looking for some good land based spots at Sussex Inlet to work lures (Soft Plastics and vibes and possibly hard-bodies) for flatties. Most places to me look really weedy so haven't had a chance for a fish yet. Don't really mind about wading in shallow water. Any suggestions on some good spots. Also if you know any spots that not many people know of/secret spots that hold decent sized flatties. Cheers Azza_Fishing
  7. Thanks, What type of plastic did she use (was it the jerk shad) and what was the sized hook and weight that was in the rig. Also what is that lake/estuary you went to. Thanks heaps, Aaron
  8. G'day fishraiders, Heading out on a boat at Hawkesbury River, and I need to buy some new lures. Right now the only jewie lures I have are the Berkley Shimma Shad 100 in frosty gaze and 65 in golden ticket. What other lures would you recommend to chuck on the end of my line. I am going on a boat, so if you could also recommend some hot spots for jewies near Hawkesbury Marina. Cheers Azza_Fishing
  9. I still have the receipt and there is no damage, however I have already used it, so I can't return it
  10. I'll give it a go. Do you have any suggestions for the plastics/hardbodies to use for targeting the big flathead and jewfish. Cheers Aaron
  11. It is the Daiwa Revros Baitcaster Rod (1 piece) graphite.
  12. Hi all, Today I made the worst mistake possible and bought the wrong rod and line to go with my baitcaster. I bought an 8lb braid (0.13mm) and then I bought a baitcaster rod which has a cast weight of 10-30g and line from 6-12kg. I was talking to some of my mates and they said the rod I bought is suited for kingfish and other big species rather than small estuary fish such as bream, whiting and smaller flathead (bought the rod to target those species). I can't return it to a shop because of their no return POLICY. Don't know if I should keep the 8lb braid on, or just take it all off and replace it with a heavier line. I want to keep on using it to fish, but, can't think on what to do with it. Any suggestions on what to do. Cheers Azza_Fishing
  13. Hi all, I am looking to go for a fish in the hawkesbury river/berowra waters area over the weekend. I haven't decided exactly which one to go to, but if you could give me suggestions for both. I am going to hire a BBQ boat and have a couple of mates over with me, to go fishing. Which places would you all recommend to go which is great for flathhead, Jewies and squid, via a boat. They can be different areas. I am hiring a boat at Brooklyn, which is in Hawkesbury river, or in the Berowra Waters Marina, depending on which one I choose, so I want to go fish at a place, that is not too far away from there. Also what lures and bait would you recommend using for flathead and bream there. Right now the only squid jigs I have got is the daiwa Nude Emeraldas in the green and orange colour. So what would be the best places for squidding there. Cheers Azza
  14. @FishyMcFishFace yeah its great fun on topwater, especially for tailor. I have caught a bunch of tailor on top water and they fight like crazy. Congrats on your first topwater tailor πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘. Its especially great to see them jump out of the water and take the lure. What colour and size sugpen did you use? For me my go to would be a C393 colour on a 95mm. Heres a photo of the tailor I caught a while ago. In my experience, I find catching tailor on top water, when the water is a little choppy and wavy to be the best, as it is the big splash that attracted them to my sugapen. Might of just been the day, and they were just really active, but I would recommend to give it a go when its a little bit windy, but not too windy otherwise you won't be able to see anything. Cheers Azza_Fishing
