  1. Hey fellow fisherman and fisherwoman! I need help identifying this fish I recently caught as it is my first fish I ever caught (I’m still beginner) I caught this fish at La Perouse on the bridge to the island, The size of the fish was between 15cm-30cm. This was caught using frozen prawn as bait. Any tips and places where to fish around Sydney area would be great! Thanks!!
  2. Hey guys I have just moved to Manly and looking to get any information that can help me get some bites. Locations, rigs, baits etc. mainly looking at beach, rock fishing or even Manly dam. Anything at all really to me started. Cheers
  3. Hi all, I'm just getting into fly fishing and live in Cronulla. Was planning on going out this Friday - any good land-based areas around the Hacking? Was thinking of trying the sand flats around Maianbar or even the Basin. Based on what I've read, looks like flatties might be good to target first around there. Any advice or good places for a beginner to start? Cheers
  4. 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. Types of fish? salmon, tailor, bonito, mackerel, trevally etc most from the surf/rocks Looking at this rod/reel combo Daiwa Crosscast Surf Combo - 11', 10-20Kghttp://www.bcf.com.au/online-store/products/Daiwa-Crosscast-Surf-Combo-11-10-20Kg.aspx?pid=326688&menuFrom=30305#Recommendations Most likely will pick it all up from BCF. Just a few questions I need answered. Mono or braid lines ? If so weight, brand etc ? Best type of rigs for metal lures? Cheaper better rods/reels? also would it be better to go for a 9 - 10' rod for surf/rock? Best metal lures? weight, brand etc Want gear that will last, I've done some research but still want to be sure that I'm getting the best setup for the surf/rocks. Appreciate any advice thanks.
  5. Hi all, I've been trawling the site a bit for the last few weeks and read lots of interesting stuff that's fueled my interest in getting out there with a rod and catch some fish. I used to fish with my dad as a kid down in Tassie, but I would say neither of us ever really new what we were doing. Jetty fishing mainly landing Flathead and cocky salmon, and a bit of rock fishing which usually ended up with kelpies (thrown back) and the occasional leather jacket. Anyway I've just moved to Sydney and I'm keen to give it another go. I'm based in Bondi Junction and car-less, so any tip for what I should look to target from the shore around the Bondi/Bronte area of coast. I'm mainly interested in bread and butter fishing for the table, but would be nice to get a bit of variety if there's a few things I can target without too many set ups. I don't have any gear currently, but I'm getting my dad to bring up my old rod and reel at Easter which from memory is a 6 to 7 foot light rod (copperhead i think?) hopefully with a matching 2500 reel. So I thought in the meantime maybe I could go with a cheap set up that's a bit different to that. Maybe I need a bigger rod to get out from the shore a bit? My girlfriend is also pretty keen, so when we've got two set ups I'd like to be able to take her out and impress her with everything I've learnt. Haha. Cheers guys!
