    Lake Eucumbene recommendations

    Hi all, a mate and I are heading to Lake Eucembene for 2-3 days on the weekend of the 1st/2nd of December (2 weeks time). I've never been there before so just after some tips, advice, recommendations on fishing trout or other species, tackle, clothing, times of day to fish, accommodation etc. This is a dedicated fishing trip. We went to Thompson Creek Dam back in July but the trout were all spawning, so no love (for us anyway). I dont have access to any fly fishing gear and would prefer to stick to my spinning gear. Happy to rough it out, in fact i'd love to camp by the lake, but dont mind paying to get some accom close by either. We're atleast Intermediate fishos and have been trout fishing before. Any questions, feel free to ask Thanks, Horsleyboy
  3. Hi Guys, Just wanted to see if anyone can give me any ideas on how to clean my squid jigs, reason being is because they smell like crap from the EgiMax spray I use all the time. What is the best way to clean them as well as my tackle box and how often should I clean and service my reels? Thank You Zaki

    Tinny storage?

    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 to some tree on a little beach? Any advice would be much appreciated. BTW I live around lane cove/hunters hill/Gladesville

    Central Coast Fishing

    Hi everyone, Next weekend i'll be down in the central coast with the wife, all day Sunday and she'll be working, so I'll have the day spare to go... fishing! I don't really know the area, and I'll be around the entrance area, and land based. I'm guessing they'll maybe be blackfish, salmon, tailor, bream? Any tips? Judging from google maps there's toowoon point etc, or the rockwall west of the bridge... but i'm really just guessing. Thanks!

    new rod?

    any one have any reconmendations for a new rod and reel that i can use when using sp for bream and flathead.
  10. Hi everyone, Looking for a camping spot for the missus and I, late April. Keen to do some fishing, but will be shore based only. Thinking of trying a new area, anywhere from port stephens to forster, and really not sure whether to aim for beach, river or lake... as i said, i don't know the area very well, and according to Google maps the whole lot is tempting! Given the time of year is between traditional fishing 'seasons', are there any recommendations? Should i try for my first jewie on a beach? Drift bait for bream? Any blackfish spots alive this time of year? I'm open for ideas ??
  11. 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

    Japanese tackle websites

    Hey guys just wondering if anyone has bought any rods and/or reels from Japan, they seem to be a fair bit cheaper over there even with shipping fees to what you would pay in Australia but I’m not sure what websites to trust and what not to and was wondering if anyone could recommend some websites

    Batemans Bay

    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..Hopefully everyone is okay.? After another 10 minutes of cruising we hit our spot, dropped anchor, cracked a cheeky beer, baited up and away we went. Fi thought she'd try her luck with a squid jig, sadly nothing was taking it. My first few casts brought in a few tiddlers (bream, snapper, trumpeter) you know the usual annoying fish, and then I hooked into a pretty decent snapper which was great fun on 10lb mono zzzzzzz went the drag haha. After a few minutes I brought him in and he was just on legal, I thought maybe in another year you'll be ready, so I let him swim free. Fi finally got her rig ready (paternoster Rig) through a bit of tailor on and out it went. At this point I was boasting about the snapper and a few other fish I had caught, then Fi cut me short......ZZ, ZZZZZZ, ZZZZ, She was into something big. The fight was weird, almost like a big flathead with a shoe attached to it. Fi fought the mystery fish for about 10 mins trying to exhaust the fish before bringing it up to the boat. Finally the head came up, it was a huge flatty. As she brought it up to the boat I put the net around it and brought it in. On closer inspection she had hooked the flathead in the bum!!! I almost fell over backwards!!! hahaha!! absolute wrongtown! haha This was a big big flathead, not in length, but just overall FAT! The flathead only went about 65cm, but it was 11cm wide! This thing had been chowin' down the last few months! Usually we let the bigger ones go however, being the only flathead we have caught in a few weeks, we decided to keep it for dinner. We got 4 big beautiful steak fillets off it and the flesh is a beautiful white colour! Very keen for tonights dinner! Anyway, Thanks for reading Raiders I hope you got a little bit of enjoyment out of my report. Tight Lines! Regards, itscaca.

    Sydney Harbor Kingfish

    Heading out on my kayak hopefully b4 the school holidays start, looking to target kingfish. Planning to have my kayak on the beach and ready around 4:45am while I'm on the wharf catching some lives. As for bait, will LIVE SQUID AND YAKKAS outfish CUBE PILLIES? I was looking into slowtrolling the baits around mooring edges and casting a few deeper into the moorings aswell, as for trace will the usual mulloway rig from the tackle shop work or will you need fluerocarbon? How will the sinker be placed or is there any sinker at all? I was going with this, 20lb braid to 30lb fluero double smelled setup with a small bean sinker sliding above the 2 hooks. ( sinkers would probably vary from a pea size sinker to a 2 ounce pebble)

    Fishing Forster / Tuncurry

    Hi all, heading up to Forster / Tuncurry region for a few nights this weekend and wondering if anyone has some tips for the area; good spots, techniques, things to look out for, places to eat etc. Arriving Friday arvo and leaving Sunday night to be exact. I usually fish lakes/rivers for flathead using soft plastics and have that down pat. Wouldnt mind chasing some bream with soft/hard. Otherwise, go for something bigger like Kingies or even Jew Fish. I've got plenty of gear that would cover anything from light 2-3kg range to chasing heavier stuff up to 20 pound. Any advice would be appreciated. I'd like to get organised so im ready to go! Thank, Nick

    Micro rods?

    Hi Raiders, I've been looking around and came across a Zebco Dock Demon. Further investigation shows that there are a few of these tiny/micro rods floating around. In a similar vein, there are "pen" rods that are telescopic and exceedingly small. One of the obvious aspects of something like this is the portability, which got me thinking about being able to take one bushwalking, or even in my backpack "just in case" you know? Another interesting and seemingly counter-intuitive aspect is that some of them seem nigh-indestructible. I have broken a telescoping rod fighting a shark before, so the idea of an unbreakable rod that is still tiny and super portable is very intriguing to me. The downside is that on a tiny rod, even a very big fish doesn't feel that big, so I wonder if it would be worth the trade-off? Anyone have experience with these?

    Desperately need a Fishing Spot

    Hi Raiders. First time posting so forgive if it's amateur. Been fishing the Hawkesbury, Pittwater and Roseville Bridge to Mosman but still no luck. Plenty of bites but all little critters! Does anyone know of a spot I can go where I can catch a size big enough for the barbie? I have a boat but no fancy equipment such at GPS or sounder, just my trusty old boat and rods! I would really appreciate any advice on decent fishing spots Northern Beaches, NSW side but happy to travel a little further for the day. Leaving tomorrow morning with two mates, would be awesome to head to a decent spot. Thanks Raiders

    Fishing in Shellharbour

    I am starting to fish again around the Shellharbour region. I was wondering if anyone knew any good spots for larger fish and what sort of tackle I would need ( lures/bait ). I am willing to anywhere in the Shellharbour region. So if anyone has any ideas on where to go and what to bring that would be highly appreciated.
  23. Hi, i need some help. Bait is quite expensive these days and sometimes it is too hard to pump for yabbies. So I was wondering if anyone knew a selection of lures that are good for catching flatheads to bonito ( really anything big enough for eating or that is fun to catch ). if someone that could just give me like their top ten lure selections that would help immensely.

    Surf Shark fishing gear

    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
  25. Hi Raiders I have a 20 foot half cabin full setup all gear- just looking for someone to come out weekends- I go out to the banks, JB, Kiama fad - 70s - to the canyons plus have several in close snapper spots Had good season so far this year released 8 marlin and caught 3 dollies that went 20 kg on light 3kg spin (hour plus fights). Maybe get out once a week or so sometimes I go solo sometimes two on board share fuel costs (max $50) and help me clean up the boat afterwards If you have seamanship skills that's good, angling skills that's good, but most important - good sense of humour and have fun ! I generally don't go too early and don't stay out all day either (not a troll plastics all day type boat) look for versatility and what's biting. If anyone is interested in some sport fishing mayhem send a message and I'll get back to you
