    Where are the crabs in Botany Bay?

    Hi adkel53... my favorite spot for blue swimmers is the start of Kogarah bay.....draw a line from St George motor boat club across to the northern side of Tom Uglys bridge..... set your pots there then you can have a drift between the bridges for flathead.... I find the run out tide the best....always fresh mullet for bait.....hope this helps abit...

    Funky looking prawn (New Holland River Prawn)

    Hi Flickn Mad......Its a type of "Cherabin".....they grow as big as a King Prawn but are mainly a sub tropical/ tropical critter. In Queensland & the Northern Territory they use them live for Barramundi. I have heard of them being called a "Rock Prawn" but this is just a local slang term.....

    brisbane waters help!

    Hi Gregmf..... Mate at the northern end of Paddys Channel there is a sandbar on your right before the oyster leases which is great for Whiteing & Flathead. If you then track over that sandbar heading east you will see where it drops off from about 1.2 metres to around 8 to 10 metres!!! This is known as "The Blind Channel". Great spot for Jews on the runout tide. Also on big tides, over 1.8 metres, try the oyster leases, in between the racks. There are some monster Bream in there. Plastics, Vibes, Hardbody lures all work well....also unweighted baits like, Stripey cubes, half Pilchards, Chook gut...

    Offshore today

    Hi Raiders Went out today from Sydney. All I can say is don't trust BOM weather forcast, as it never got over 10 knots all day!!! went 5 5 1 on Marlin. Tagged a small Stripe on 15kg just north of The Peak. Also had two bites from small Black Marlin in the mix. The other two were Stripes. All in the 40 to 60 fathom region. Marked alot of bait & just worked them. All the bites were on medium size lures.......Our converison rate not that good today but good to see the fish in good numbers......Get out there!!!

    Where can I buy live Bloodworms near Cronulla?

    Sorry for late reply to your question Joel2230...... The red tubeing is also an attractor......Also when you are fishing for Whiteing, try to keep your bait moving slowly. As with most fish, they are attracted to movement.

    Where can I buy live Bloodworms near Cronulla?

    Hi Joel2230.......The closest I can think of is Macs Bait Bar at Tom Uglys bridge or Gabes tackle Princes Hwy Sylvania if its still there. Frozen beach worms will catch fish not as good of course. Don't forget about 3cms of red tubeing above your hook.......good luck mate
