  1. G'day raiders, I was hoping to get some advice. I'll be buying a small tinny to suit outings for a small family (myself, wifey and our 1 year old bub) but also for my solo fishing trips. I'd be using it to fish and explore the estuaries such as the hawkesbury, middle harbour (from roseville down to the spit), lane cove river and the Georges. So I've been looking at something between the 3.9m to 4.4m range unpainted Vhull BUT what I can't really get my head around is the hull thickness. A lot are 1.6mm sides and base. Some with 1.6mm sides but with 2mm base. Then there are some
  2. By no means am I Blacktiph but I have filmed a few youtube videos documenting a lot of fishing. Here are some tips to get started filming, editing and uploading your videos. And by reading this I hope you are inspired to start filming and uploading to youtube so that fellow raiders can get more depth to your reports and see the fish. We can all share so much more when we add a video to it. To get started all you need is a camera an editing software like Imovie or some internet a google account and something worthy to film. In terms of gear. The Action cameras that are waterproof are
  3. Hey guys going to be taking a little 3 day holiday to Port Stephens Big 4 Holiday in a week. Was wondering where are good land based wharfs, beaches or rocks to go to. Looking to target kingies, bonitos, big tailors, jewies and squid. Any tips are appreciated, don't really know the area too well and don't have a boat either. Will be bringing one light to medium tackle and my two heavy game rods.
  4. Hello everyone, first post so go easy on me. I currently work with people who have different disabilities but a large portion of my clients LOVE fishing. The issue I’ve run into lately is that it’s pretty costly to keep frozen bait and ice constantly on the go. This is especially true when the fishing trips can be at the drop of a hat and end just as quickly when my clients get frustrated. I enjoy soft plastics and lure fishing but that can be a bit technical for some of my clients who often prefer a more passive bait and bobber style. We are based in Lake Macquarie and mostly targ
  5. Hey guys, heading down to manly and just asking about fishing spots around there? Do the rocks at manly cove produce good stuff.Squid? Flathead? Or is it worth flicking SP’s at the manly cove beach? Open to all info because I’m a bit new to this area. Ps , (I will have 2 outfits with me, a light Pelagic rod (8kg rod, 15lb braid 30lb leader and I will also have a lighter rod (2-4kg 8lb braid 12lb leader) I’m mainly looking for squid and flathead, but also wouldn’t mind having a crack at those kings or really anything that bites and fights 😀 Thanks Will
  6. Hey legends, I'm after some sandflats to surface fish around Sussex inlet/St George's basin? Any worth looking at and times? Thanks in advance!
  7. Hey raiders So I want a light weight fishing combo (preferably Shimano but doesn’t have to be) suitable for throwing lures off the rocks and catching some kingies. I don’t really have a price range. any suggestions?
  8. Hey guys I was out fishing at the little manly cove jetty/pier and caught a nice sized red morwong and had no other luck apart from some tiny snappers and bream. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck at this spot. Has anyone tried out metal lures for kingfish or tailor? Most people there were just catching leather jackets and bream apart from the occasional blue fish. Share your thoughts on this location.
  9. Hello fellow Fishers!! i'm from central west nsw and will be having a crack at st Georges basin next month. I'm wondering if anyone can help me out with ANY advice on where, when, how i can get among some fish.. Cheers in advance everyone!
  10. Fishing is not only a hobby and entertainment, it is, first of all, an active rest. What could be better than rest away from the city noise, this everyday fuss and work? Of course, fishing!
  11. There is something about our inner childhood fascination and curiosity of the unknown which makes "old fisherman's tales" so alluring, and I believe that same inner curiosity is at least partially responsible for why we continuously drop a line into the depths, wondering what we will pull up. Being fisher-people, collectively, we spend a considerable amount of time out in the wilderness and incredible remote places, and sometimes experience rare/incredible things during the many hours we spend soaking our lines in the water. I wanted to know what are some of the most crazy fishing st
  12. I've recently decided to target some jewfish for the first time and was wondering if anyone knew any good land-based spots to go fishing for one along or near the northern beaches. Any additional tips on catching jewies would help too.
  13. 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?
  14.

  15. Hey everyone, just recently me and a mate went fishing at a beach in Mosman, whilst we didn't catch many fish it was a great day. So we aren't very experienced at fishing from a beach of any manner, we have tried surf beaches before with no success, so you can see why the day before when we were planning this trip we were doubtful about how this expedition was going to unfold. We decided that if we were going to catch fish we must wake up early so as planned, the next day our alarm went off at 5 am. We tiredly gathered our stuff and made our way to the relatively calm beach. It was a hor
  16. What do you guys think is more important; fishing at the right time or fishing the right tide?
  17. Hi all! Just going to be running through some of the gear I use for inshore kingfishing. First off, my light setup. My reel is a Shimano Stradic 1000, a new addition, spooled up with some lower end (cheaper) 6lb braid and I usually run 10lb mono leader. It is a great little reel with a good amount of drag, just enough to stop those rat kings! This reel is paired up with an Atomic Arrowz Estuary 7 foot, with a 3-10lb line rating. This rod goes great with the reel, strong, light and it is stiff enough that I feel confident casting heavier lures on it without it breaking!
  18. - 45cm + red snapper - 19 kingfish - 5 legal kingfish - beat my current record silver trevally in the harbour (65cm) - 85cm + kingfish - catch a jewfish! - get into some more of the smaller tuna family eg. bonito, frigate mackerel, Mach tuna ect. Oscar
  19. New to the area, only here till Monday morning. Looking for a fishing mate to show me a good spot and possibly fish together. I don’t know any spots has I am only here for a few days. Staying along the river, If anybody would like to show me a spot, or fish with me that would be awesome. Thanks in advance
  20. 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 don
  21. 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

  25. 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
