  2. Hey guys, I'm heading up to Fingal bay for the Australia Day weekend and will be spending a fair chunk of time on the beach, fishing. Just wondering if anyone has been fishing there lately and can tell me what's hot there at the moment and what I should be targeting. Happy to travel to the surrounding bays to fish also. Will be throwing a few lures around as well as bait fishing so any lure/bait tips would be muchly appreciated! Thanks in advance, Daniel
  3. Hi Raiders, I would appreciate if someone could take me along a beach fishing session. I have done estuary fishing, a bit of rock fishing and mostly break wall based fishing for the last 6 years. Haven't done much beach fishing. Following are my information: Name: Tan Location: Parramatta Fishing technique: Beach fishing on bait Availability: Weekends typically Preferred location: Northern beaches, Dee why, La Perouse Gear: I have got a 12 ft rod spooled with 20lb braid for beach. Hoping to hear from someone. Cheers
  4. G'day fellow Fishraiders, I am a newbie here and have just recently started beach fishing along with my cousin TheSillySalmon. I have a beach rod however it is pretty average. I am just looking for some advice on what some of the best rods, reels and other tackles on the market are for beaches. At the moment I am aiming for Aussie Salmon however in the future I will also be trying to hook up some bigger fish like Jewies and other species. All answers are appreciated. Cheers, TheFreakyFlatty.

    So I'm going to do some beach fishing pretty soon and I've prepared a berley bag. I have been intending to put some fish frames or guts in it but up until now I haven't actually thought about how to get this stuff. Stupid I know?. But how do you actually get fish frames if you don't have any left over from your last catch or how do you substitute for them?
  6. Looking to target some tailor off the beaches with Gang hooks, just wondering if anyone here makes up their own and links them with swivels? if so what hooks e.g. (Gamakatsu Gangsters, Mustad 4202d etc) and swivel brand/size do you use? i feel like it might be a bit of trial an error getting the right hook and swivel combination.
  7. Hi Raiders! I have Thursday (tomorrow) and Friday off this week and not many plans for the weekend. Let me know if you're keen for a fish. I'm up for just about anything other than boat fishing or rock fishing as I don't have my own PFD yet. But if you have a spare and need a buddy count me in! Outside of that I have all my own gear and happy to pick up anything I might need. I'd be really keen to do some bait gathering, whether that's beach worms, poddies, nippers, weed, cabbage.... I haven't done any of it before so I'd love to learn. Flatties have been looking good ar
  8. Just wondering what rod and line I should get for shark fishing from the surf I already have a reel (penn spinfisher ssm 950) I'm thinking about getting some form of 65lb multicoloured braid and I'm wanting a rod around the 10-12ft mark. It will mostly be used for bronze whalers and gummies but there is also the chance of mulloway
  9. G'Day Raiders, New member, first post. I spent a fair whack of time writing this and then lost the whole post when I went to submit! Here we go again... I'm generally land based off the Northern Beaches and rock ledges....Friday eve last week went down to a local spot with the ongoing jewy quest on my mind. Gear was 30kg 12ft rod with 12000 bait runner spooled with 65lb braid and another lighter setup with 30lb braid. Bait was store bought whole bonito, yakkas and squid that had been sitting in the back of my ute for half a day in the hot sun. Get to the spot, set up the heavy r
  10. Hey fellow fisherman, my first post on here as I'm a newbie, can't wait to get into all the action! I've been fishing off puckeys beach there north of Wollongong quite a bit lately with some great success. Last week I went down at about 7am and using some squirt worms I pumped for bait, I bagged some decent whiting! The smallest was 30cm. The only time I've had trouble there is when the current is ripping through, though other than that it's been great.
  11. Hi all I was hoping to get some help from you guys. Just wondering if I am doing something wrong as the title implies in regards to beach fishing. Yesterday afternoon (12/1/17) I went to narrabeen beach planning to fish the high tide at 9.30pm. 2hrs either side of the tide. I picked my spot which had a nice gutter about 20mtrs from shore. I set my gear up which is a 15 foot nitro Frankenstein rod with 20lbs braid and 20lbs leader on a shimano Sedona fe 4000 Bait of choice was chicken marinated in garlic and soy sauce (coles) and I had tuna pellets as berley.
  12. Hi Fishos Thinking of hitting the beach this Sunday morning (20/11/16) but I have a few concerns and would like everyone's opinions Here are a few facts Sunrise: 5.40am Low tide: 7.20am Wind: SSE 6knots Swell: 1.1m Solunar activity: high (tides4fishing.com) Best time to fish: 5.40am-7.40am (tides4fishing.com) (time I'm planning on fishing) I'd be on the beach targeting salmon/tailor with pillies Knowing all this, would you guys go out or save it for another day? Appreciate the response
  13. Hi everyone, my first post here, hopefully in the right spot Off to the Entrance in the next few weeks hopefully. Any tips on shore / beach based spots I could try? I'm looking to stay on North Entrance side, so I'm going to try my first beach session (basic beach fishing rig set up advice welcome!). I may have my kayak as well, so I'm going to go off around Picnic Point etc for a look as well. thanks in advance, I'm getting a lot of great tips already from this forum
  14. Hey fellow Raiders, With such great weather, we decided to go fishing a couple days ago off central coast. There is 2 parts to this report and it included a day of many firsts. We usually drift for flathead but decided we would do something different and troll around in our small boat to see if we could entice anything. Had 2 lines out, one with a halco twisty and the other a skirt, Within 30 secs of trolling we caught a mac tuna and then a bonito caught on the halco twisty and the skirt respectively. This was my first fish caught trolling. We then caught tailor and salmon, when ever
  15. Hello Raiders, Lately I have been looking at trying some beach fishing and my mate and I are looking up to try Manly beach, picking up some worms and seeing what we get from there. Does anybody know if there are any good spots out on manly beach to pick up some worms, and if there are pippies out there? If you have insight on how to pick up these worms I'm all ears (youtube makes it look so easy!!!!). If any locals see this post, is the northern or the southern side of the beach more productive, and what would I be expecting to pick up (and what rigs should I use)? Im also looking at investi
  16. G'day. I have done some beach fishing this year at North Curl Curl beach on the Northern beaches, and I have caught a few things, but have had trouble getting the fish to bite. I was wondering if anyone knew exactly what to do and how to do it when it comes to beach fishing Cheers
  17. Hi All, This is my first post. I have just got into fishing in the last six months. I have been fishing off the beach (Collaroy, Northern beaches). I have been fishing for whiting. I believe this can slow down a bit during the winter months. Does anyone have suggestions for species off the beach in the winter months? Baits, rigs etc? Cheers Matt
  18. Hi raiders, I've just picked up a cheap beach setup to give beach fishing a go. It's a cheapo 12' jarvis walker royale gold 5-10kg, up to 90g lure weight with matching reel and line. (contemplating switching out the mono for some 30lb braid i recently picked up at another sale), better to keep it mono? or switch to braid with a big shock leader? Any tips on how to set it up and properly cast it? I rigged up a paternoster rig and went down to the local beach to give it a go and could only manage a cast of 10-20m with the sinker landing to either my left or right. How do i cast this thing? I
  19. Haven't been beach fishing since I was a kid, really keen to get back into it but wanna try this time with metal/plastic lures.

  20. Good afternoon all! My brother and i are heading up to the entrance for a golf tournament this Friday and we thought we would make the most of it and head out for a little afternoon fish once were finished at the golf course. Were new the the entrance area and have never really done any fishing there before. Just wondering if anyone had any advice on where to start? at the moment were thinking of maybe pumping for some nippers and trying in and around the bridge and if that doesn't really produce maybe even try a beach fish with some poppers and pillies? Any advice would be greatly appreci
