  1. Gday raiders, hit the upper end of woronora river for the first time on Sunday morning, I initially went out chasing bream and Eps and hopefully a sneaky bass but the tide had started to turn and as a result most of the snags were starting to be exposed so with the tide running out the flattys were turning on. I got a few tips off the hunt for bronze about the area and lucky enough I was onto to some fish in no time, a munroes 2.75” paddle tail in motor oil and zman 2” grub in watermelon red on 1/16th jig head done the damage for the day. I was lucky enough to only lose one fish
  2. Gday fellow raiders, I’m going to hit chippo lakes or surrounding areas in the coming weeks to chase my first saltwater bass and fingers crossed EP, I’m located in campbelltown and fish the upper George’s regularly and I drive straight past chippo it’s only 25 minutes from home and I’ve heard and seen some good fish pulled out of there, I plan on figuring out the system to hopefully fish it regularly as I don’t get much time on the water. I know the fish are currently spawning up so I’m guessing they’ll be all schooling up towards the end of the system if anyone has a
  3. Hey raiders, im after the elusive estuary perch I searched for them in the George’s river last winter as I fish it on the regular but can’t seem to find the any EPs if anyone’s got any pointers on the George’s or anywhere else so I can tick this Aussie battler off my list 🤙🏽 Tight Lines ..
  4. Had a few near donuts recently that made me think I might need to put away the sugapens for a few months. Turns out I was wrong. Got up mega early to be out for sunrise. Walked past a drain on my way to the usual spot - saw a decent size fish hanging around that I thought was a big bream. Cast over him with one of the fake sugapens I've been using and got smashed straight away. Turned out to be my first ever Estuary Perch. Kept walking and casting and was getting loads of hits and the occasional hookup from feisty bream. You just need to cast accurately and keep the lure r
  5. Went out with my mate John, fished out of my boat on Friday 30 April. Hawkesbury Park boat ramp at 8.00am and anchored close and south of Captain Cooks Bridge Botany Bay side Day before pumped about 50 nippers at at Sandringham. Tied was last two hours moving to high In the first half hour hooked 4 bream undersized... We only wanted to fish for a couple for hours so did not want to move ... burlyed up more and added a tin of oily sardines, a left over from one of my lunches days before I chucked in the freezer. Next hour I landed 2 bream largest 30cm and a
  6. At this end of the season the Blackfish are starting to get scarce and finicky. With the lower tides they were even more difficult. We struggled to get a few fish and then decided it was just not worth any more effort. The few fish we did get were good fish 38-40 cms. We started to target bream in the same locations where we catch blackfish. They are usually consistent with blades but not this time. We moved to 2.5inch Zman grub in motor oil on a 2 gm jighead. This resulted in a few bream, albeit smaller than normally, and landed several bream in the 20 to 32 si
  7. I had a productive session on the water this afternoon. Fishing from my rowing skiff as well as a bit of wading, I went looking for some bream and flathead with a fat crankbait and a soft plastic grub. Despite covering a fairly wide area of sea-grass, sand flats and channel, I got nothing. As the light faded, something was stirring up the baitfish on the surface. While rowing up the creek in the direction of the disturbance, the first tailor hit the grub I had trailing in the water. This was a bit of unintentional trolling, 1 metre from the boat. This one spat the hook after a brief fight
  8. Been fishing hard these couple of months been trying to chase jewies but still no luck landbased. However few days ago did manage to hook up to what I believe was a big kingy I would say easy 80cm plus on my bg6500 . Was fighting for a good few 15 to 20 minutes, so close to landing but ended up cutting me off by the pylons. Did manage to catch a few other kingies though one 65 and one 74cm. Other night caught a few big breams one being 41cm my pb and 38cm tailor. Also caught random eel and blue swimmer by catch.
  9. Hi Guys this is literally my second post in this community!!! Here is my bag of bream I shared with a friend yesterday!!! Biggest bream mesured 42cm
  10. Seeing as it's nearest water to my place I've been exploring what I can catch out of Johnston's Creek lately and have found it extremely productive. First of all, to call it a creek is a slight overstatement. I'm sure it was at some point but it's a pretty standard canal/stormwater drain in reality. Don't get your hopes up about casting at snags like you're on a real river. There's no real structure apart from a couple of bridges and it only fills up to a decent level on a tide over 1.5m. Make no mistake though, the fish know there's food in there and they come up in big schools lookin
  11. I'd heard from a few people that if you fish the inner west storm water drains and canals during or after a big rain you could have some fun catching bream on plastics etc. Turns out they were dead right. Headed down to Johnstons Creek this arvo right in the middle of the heaviest rain we had today. Johnstons Creek is dry at low tide and barely has any water in it unless the tide is over 1.5-1.6m. Today though, the water was pumping out of the storm water drains into the canal and the bream were feeding where the storm water met the incoming tide. I'd had some success in the p
  12. Hi All, I've learnt a lot from this forum over the years so thought I'd share a few tips on what's been working for me when targeting Sydney Harbour bream on topwater lures. It's an extremely addictive and accessible way to fish if you live in the city. Once you've cracked the code you'll be hesitant to throw much else for bream when targeting them with lures. Most of my experience is based on my local waterway which is Blackwattle Bay / Rozelle Bay. I also have no boat or kayak so fish exclusively from the shore. The same bream rules apply for where to find them - look for
  13. Hi Raiders I have not posted here for a few years and hope to be regular poster once again! ( Facebook is just not the same) Anyway, I was invite to lure fish Hen & Chicken Bay on Saturday with my old mate Bert who I actually meet on this site. Now , I live 2 minutes from H&C bay but never considered fishing it as it did not look fishy enough... how wrong was I! Fished from 6:30pm to 8:30pm with small hard bodies and we caught a dozen or so good sized flathead and 6 or 7 bream. It was fanatics fun on the light rods and tiny lures... ecogear sx40 and Atomic doing the dam
  14. Gday raiders With the recent school holidays I have just had, i took the opportunity to target some bream on my hobie outback. The bream put up an insane fight close to structure and lost many big ones to it. Most of the bream were caught on 40mm samaki spider prawns in bloodworm and also got some on the 50mm cranka crab in olive. The gear i used was my samaki archer 1-3kg rod and Daiwa freams LT reel with 6lb braid and 6lb flurocarbon leader. Here are some pics of the bream I got. All the fish I caught were safely released video_2019-10-08T18.32.13_1.mp4
  15. G'day guys. I've been waiting for the bream-action to recommence after a slow Winter for breaming. I hit the Georges River upriver for a quick blast with the light stuff (6-8lb 7' rod and 2000 reel with 6lb leader). On this uncommon occasion, the bream and flathead were hungry and I was able to get my fishing fix for the week I was working around bridges using a Zman Grubz in bloodworm which the fish seemed to not be able to refuse. I got a decent spiking from a bream and a bit muddy shuffling around the muddy bank but it was all worth it. A darker flathead.
  16. Woollamia - day time Monday 24 June Stayed at Jervis Bay Holiday Park at Woollamia. Monday plan was to paddle down Currambene Creek to Huski and then start the day’s fishing with some trolling to Callala Bay. There was a pretty strong wind though which would have been a killer on the way back as well as on and off rain showers, so instead I flicked SPs in Currambene Creek on the rising tide. Landed three flathead and one bream. Water temp started at only 12 degrees and rose to 14 as warmer sea water came in, so still pretty cold. Flathead were caught on a mix of pink glitz and pumpkin see
  17. Overdue a catch up with my old mate, who happened to be working from home we decided the new boat would bet he days office with a sunny low 20s temp and next to no wind. a lazy 10 am start saw us pottering around the third runway with no bites and all we got at watts reef was huge rock cod... with the day being so flat and the weather so tame we decided to head out out and past the heads, i set the trolling rods out basically two rods horizontal from mid ships.... let them out 30 metres and with then speedo showing a little over 4 knots we hit the north coast and started trollin
  18. Had a hour to kill after work today and hadn’t been out for a while so headed down to the closest bit of water under Roseville bridge. While I’ve never had much luck there from the land it was that or nothing! Still loving my float fishing at the moment and find when I use bait it always finds its way under one, and today was no different. Had some old frozen prawns I needed to use and got down at the peak of the high tide as it hit dusk. Rigged up a prawn tail and threw it out under a float and settled in to watch the dusk reflect off the flat water. Wasn’t long till the float disap
  19. There are a few gutters at the northern end of Wanda beach that are good for fishing at low tide. The only thing is you need to arrive a bit late at somewhere after 10 am so that you won’t be harassed by the hundreds of dogs enjoying the free run. (Leash free time). This weekend, I made a mid day trip each on Saturday and Sunday. About 3 hours fishing each day finishing about 2pm, just before high tide. Generally fishing is good when water is low and gets slower when water is higher. All up for the two trips, I caught 5 good Flathead (ranging 40-50cm), 7 tailor, 1 bream of 3
  20. I went out yesterday morning with a friend of mine. We started by gathering some live bait from the bait station by Little Box Head, then came inside by Lobster Beach to drift. We had live baits and a cut bait out the back I was casting ahead of the drift with soft plastics. We were only on our second drift when my rod - which had a live slimy on it - folded over. I grabbed it and lifted the tip to set and I thought I was on. I started bringing it up and there was a lot of weight on it. I got it up to the surface and my mate got sight of it - a huge flattie. Then it opened its mouth and
  21. Would a rogue blue point 12ft 2 peice combo be good for beach fishing for species such as bream, flathead, shovelnoses, salmon, trevallies or even kingfish? cheers - pugz
  22. Hi Raiders, So today I went out to Flint and Steel hoping for a good feed. Equipped with livies, prawns and squid we casted and waited. And waited... and waited. Not a single bite. I just need some tips guys. Like where exactly should you anchor, what rig, best time and tides. Come on raider I need you help Will
  23. How addictive is chasing bream along the edges of our local river systems? Over the last two weeks I have dedicated a few trips to targeting bream in and around the mangroves. To say it has been rewarding would be the understatement of the year. I thought I would share some of the key things that I believe are the difference between scoring a few and the dreaded doughnut! 1. Fish as light as possible, I have been fishing 4lb braid with 3lb leader. Not only do you get more bites, it makes it heaps easier to cast tiny plastics. Just make sure your drag is set accordingly or you w
