    Rebel very glad you find fishraider helpful. Raiders are a great bunch generally. They are all passionate about their sport and sometimes we even agree to disagree Raider spirit lives on here in this community and that is why it is special. Good work raiders! Now cant wait to read about your adventures and great captures in the near future

    Allow Me To Introduce Myself

    Hi all, thought I would start up this thread for members to get to know each other a little. We have had so many new members in the last few months and its interesting to know where we all come from. I am mrsswordfisherman aka Donna and have the honour of being one of 2 female members on this site . I am a moderator on this site and visit daily to read about the experiences of members. I am pushing 50 ( but sometimes act like a 20 yr old ) and am the partner of swordfisherman aka Stewy. I am a mother of 2 beautiful and smart daughters. A Registered Nurse involved with Nurse Education/OH&S, I enjoy trivia, fishing, the arts, 10 pin bowling and online card tournament directing and competing (cribbage, canasta, euchre etc.) I have only been fishing for a year or two but I am learning real fast and have a great mentor in swordfisherman. My catches are not that notable but all caught on sp's. In fact I have never used live bait and have literally "grown up" on these plastic wonders. Best so far is a bass of 52 cms and a pb flattie of 56 cms. I enjoy reading the posts from members and learn something every day. We can be seen around the Sydney waterways in our teal coloured Polycraft boat, give us a wave if you see us. Don't forget to fill in your member profile and send a personal message at any time if any problems. Cheers mrsswordfisherman ADDIT: A few months after I posted the above in 2006 I became one of the 3 owners of fishraider. I am the only female owner of a fishing website in Australia I believe. Now, 12 months on, there are now many, many more then 2 female members, women who like to fish and join in with their hubbys, sons, dads etc.... are now regular contributors to this site. Our aim is to have the forum evolve into a place where women, young folk and men can share their fishing experiences from beginners to the more experienced. A website that is informative, educational and enjoyable with offline activity such as socials, workshops and lots more. Contribute to fishraider, don't be shy and enjoy it
  6. Our site is becoming very large and active. We are looking for moderators to help keep fishraider the great informative site it is. Requirements: Time - visit the site daily and read reports Knowledge of fishing and Departmental rules (or know where to find the info) Knowledge of fishraider site rules and how they apply A sense of the ridiculous Social media use Some computer literacy - if you can navigate your way around fishraider that is all that is needed Help members with queries where you can and welcome newbies The moderation team are a very trusted group of dedicated people. You will see they assist at socials and offline events also. They help members with queries and all sorts of things. Generally I need help with people to read posts and moderate if needed. It is very easy to do now we can do from smartphones and tablets etc. It is a love job. If we all do a bit it helps keep our community the great place it is. You will get a few more tools to do the job. I will train you and it will take about an hour to show you around all the features and new tools you will get. If you would like to have a chat please pm me. Donna

    Sorry folks. I have been busy getting my daughter's wedding sorted that took place on Sat and did not get to read all the posts as usual. PLEASE USE THE REPORT POST FUNCTION IN FUTURE - this will go immediately to mods and me so we know. On any post you can use the "report post" and type in what the problem is.

    If you lived in Coogee, Randwick, Maroubra, Chifley areas you would know how many old boats block streets there. In the middle of Anzac Pde near Duffy’s Corner there used to be many boats just left there.
