  1. Hey all, New user of the site here. A little background, I've always loved fishing and usually go regularly over the summer but if i'm honest I never really have any idea what I'm doing. I've always had poor quality gear and just go off the beach or rock wall in random spots around Sydney. Rarely catch anything but enjoy it none the less. Recently decided I would wanted a boat so I could start fishing some different spots and get a little more serious about actually catching something. I did some logbook trips with my old man and got my license. Purchased an old 12' De Havilland Sea
  2. Hi there guys, few months ago I was able to land a good deal on a 2010 500 Discovery Brooker boat. Overall I’ve always loved runabouts given their versatility and thought my family would loved it as much as I would but they don’t go fishing as much as I do or they like to stay in enclosed waters besides my dog 😂 so I’m at the point of thinking of a cuddy cabin conversation. Now before anyone suggest selling the boat and getting a cuddy/half cabin I know it doesnt involve all the hassle but the reason why I want this conversation is because I love this boat and I can’t literally point out anyth
  3. Hi all, I am new to the forum and new to the area. I live close to the Port Hacking and I have a small tinny (too small and under powered to go out beyond the heads so I must stay within the shelter of the Port Hacking) I don't have a fish finder so I am hoping some of the more experienced Raiders would share their local knowledge and share some of the fishing spots on the hacking and what species to target at the spot? Thanks for reading, looking forward to learning from the Raider community. Cheers
  4. Hey Guys, just wondering if it is safe to fish around Jibbon Bombora just outside Port Hacking, and if so what is the best way to go about it? Cheers
  5. Hey guys, i’m looking for weekend fishing mates. Im relatively new in Sydney. Im free most weekends. Im interested in land based and off shore. I'm happy to share cost for off shore sessions. I'm on Instagram if you need to get in touch. @serendip_pelagics Cheers,
  6. Taking my boat to the Pittwater bay area tomorrow, does anybody know what fish you can catch, how to, where to and any other useful information on the area?
  7. Hi all, I recently changed my rusted full wobble roller boat trailer to a spitfire aluminium trailer with both wobble rollers and keep rollers. I've had a few mishaps driving the boat up on the new trailer and it is always the last keep roller at the back of the boat it is designed so that you basically have to aim at that one spot on then work your way up the trailer, but thanks to winds or the current etc I've missed it a couple of times and have done a couple of deep gouges on my boat (the latest incident attached) After some ideas on avoiding this without having to actually
  8. Hi all, Have just done a small repair of some fibreglass on my boat where it has been a little gouged out by hitting the last keep roller while trying to drive up on the trailer. Anyhow started by sanding the area etc and laid up a little bit of glass and have sanded that this morning and notice there's a couple of little holes where obviously air has been. With these holes can I just hit them with a putty of some sort to fill them and then gelcoat over the top? Just wondering if I am meant to use a special type of putty filler too. Will try and load some pics from my phone.
  9. Hi all, Just a couple of questions regarding my transom. I have a 5.2 savage escort, think its a 91 model, I was looking at installing a new sounder this afternoon and I took of a piece of plastic chopping board I was using as a transom saver, I put that on nearly 4 years ago now, I sealed all the screw holes with sikaflex, I also sikaflexed the whole back of the board and sealed the edges once I was finished. Today as I undid the screws I noticed a bit of water coming from behind the board as I was loosening the screws off. Once the board was removed the holes appeared to be a litt
  10. Hey guys I'm looking into getting a tinny for fishing and almost everything in this plan seems very possible except for one thing: storage. So, the kind of boat I'm looking into is a very small tinny or even a kitted out rowboat and the plan will be to have the boat moored somewhere and the turn up with an esky, rods and a small clip-on electric motor. The problem is I have got no Idea where to leave it and I don't exactly want to redecorate my backyard with a tinny or shell out heaps of money on some boat storage facility. Is there a free storage place somewhere? Can I just leave it tied up t
  11. Keen on meeting someone who goes out on there boat and needs company. I'll pay my way and have all my gear, I just can't afford a boat. A good way to meet someone new, have a laugh and hopefully catch a few. A good way for someone to make a bit of extra cash. Let me know. I'm based near the city in Sydney
  12. Hi there guys, I am looking to join someone with a boat on fishing trips in Sydney, I have been fishing for many years and have all the gear, just looking for someone who is keen to have someone join them out on the water and get into some good fish. I am in between jobs at the moment so have alot of time on my hands during the week and weekends :-), The fishing seems to be kicking off nicely in the harbour, so hoping there are a few guys that may need an extra hand or someone to join. Cheers, Nick
  13. Hi guys, Going down to the bay tomorrow, staying at batemans Bay beach resort. We are taking our tiny out for a fish, pretty sure it’s 14ft. Was wondering what the fishing is like around the islands, snapper island etc. what fish are around there what areas are good for snapper where are some good locations to fish what gear to use. I have seen some similar posts already but they are quite older so just wanting some new info, any info providing would be great! Cheers
  14. G'day Fellow Raiders, Just a quick report on this mornings voyage to the rip bridge (St Huberts side) My friend Fiona (Fi) was keen for a putt in the boat before she had to go to work, which gave us about 2 hours on the water. We took the Humdinghy (my boat) to orange grove boat ramp and away we went trying to waste no time. On our travels we saw a police boat getting information from another boat as we putted along with my little 6 horse power, and then ZOOM! off the police boat went straight out under the bridge and towards box head, passed us like we were standing still..Hop
  15. Good day fellow Raiders! It seemed to be the perfect day, I had the day off work, the girl had the day off work, the sun was shining and the boat was ready to go. We started our day at about 11am, launching off orange grove boat ramp and heading towards the rip bridge. We decided to anchor St Hubert's side of the bridge where the current was slow and the water was somewhat clear (for Brisbane waters anyway). After about an hour of flicking plastic and getting zilch we decided to continue to Paddy's channel. On the travel we found a nice sand bar just at the start of Paddy's and
  16. Hi guys, I don't have a boat but would love to meet someone in the Eastern Suburbs that needs a mate to join along on weekends or midweek. I'm happy to pay for my spot, I have all of my own gear and think it would be a good laugh. I'm 33, down to earth, love my fishing but can't afford a boat right now. This would be a good way for someone to make a little bit of extra cash and have someone join them for a day out in Sydney Harbour. Let me know and we can go from there guys
  17. I just bought my first boat and the engine is having some problems. My mechanic says the engine is “hunting” when you accelerate (I don’t know what hunting is). It’s not starving fuel either. The carbi was rebuilt and the thermostat was welded closed (it was open). We tested compression and the spark plugs and everything seemed fine. Any solutions? Engine is a PowerTec 40HP (knock off Yamaha engine) Thanks in advance
  18. Hi All Im looking at getting myself a tinnie to run around Sydney harbour. Cant park it in my apartment building as parking is underground. Driving through Sydney I’ve noticed boats parked in the street. Will I be able to park my boat in the street, or even in another area from where I live In Sydney? Wondering how guys go about doing this as I’m very keen to get a boat. Cheers Nick
  19. Hi all, Took the kids out on Sydney Harbour yesterday for a fish but couldn't catch a cold... or even a bite! We fished Snails Bay around 2pm, Woolwich moorings around 3:30, then after a swim tried Hunters hill at 4:30. The weather turned so we headed back and got in as it started to rain. I did catch a metre long stainless ladder.. was going to clean it up but covered in oysters so the kids would have stepped on it for sure. Was burleying mouldy bread maybe that was a turn-off? Also burleyed some frozen bonito from last trip. Would love any pointers on bait /
