  1. Hey Guys!!! Last night l went out for a fish around the Neutral Bay Area, I grabbed a bunch of frozen Pillies & Prawns from the servo and made my way down. l was lucky enough to have @DerekD come down and show me a few good tricks, from squidling basics to just casting techniques... WOW he knows a lot!!! On arriving we setup and got into a bit of squidling after no success for the first 15-20mins we put that aside to get the other rods setup and put some bait out there, I simply cut the tails off the pillies put a decent hook through and loop it so it doesn't come off with only a
  2. 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
  3. G'Day All, Those of you who are members of Ausfish may have seen my thread over the last 2 years on 'Building a 23' catamaran.' Well the boat is built and I'm looking to get started fishing. I have been a long term sailor and over the years I have regularly sailed up to QLD in the winters from Sydney. The thing I enjoy most about cruising is fishing. The rule was, 'if I move, I troll' and I always tried to leave enough daylight after anchoring to have a drift around the bay to pick up supper. I've had plenty of luck trolling my red and white Mackerel Maulers. However, at age 67, the single
  4. Hi Guys, Went out Saturday 26th for a quick squid session, used 2.5 - 3.0 Yamashita bright coloured and natural coloured jigs, we managed nothing for two hours straight so we packed up and went home for the night. I was wondering if anyone has any different techniques for this area that I could try next time? Tight Lines Zac
  5. Put in a good effort on Vday which permitted me a fishing pass. Spent probably 10 or so hours over the weekend standing in the rain soaking livies (slimy & yakka), live and fresh squid, squid strips. I always have one out on the bottom with lead, and one under a balloon (livey) or unweighted (squid). Livies were no trouble to come by at all, however the squid were surprisingly tough to catch. Have been averaging 15+ most trips lately, could only get a handful all weekend. Managed to burley up a few rats right up against the pier into my trail of bread whilst catching livies, and as I
  6. Hi guys - Still putting in a lot of time/work to catch my first king but to no avail. Fished from the shore on what I call (though some have disagreed) Lavender Bay - anyow the foreshore around the Luna Park area, between about 3pm-9pm. There were schools boiling all afternoon though out of my casting range - some folks in a boat looked to be getting amongst them (or at least doing a decent job of trolling through the school enough to put them down). My rig for kingfish is not dissimilar to my jewfish rig. A running traced star sinker above a swivel, I've even dropped to a 30lb mono leade
  7. Hi Raiders, I'm a long time reader but a virgin writer to the site, mainly because I never seemed to have anything worthwhile to report. I'm definitely still a learner. Decided to try an all-nighter with the full moon around the Sydney harbour wharves last night. My regular partner (28yr old son) was keen to join in and show me some spots he'd seen. Launched my 4.7m Steji at Drummoyne at about 8:30pm on the rising tide and first headed to Gore Creek to drop two crab traps after some luck getting a nice male mud crab in Tarban Creek on my last outing. Then headed towards Pyrmont and Goat Is
  8. Hi Everyone, My mates and I have always been keen to catch sharks inside sydney harbour and now since it is the school holidays I thought this would be a good time to give it a crack. I'm located on the south side of the harbour so spots around Rose Bay, Watsons Bay are ideal. I was thinking around the beaches at Watsons Bay like Camp Cove and also the rocks around nelson park. The sharks i had in mind were whalers and smaller sharks. Any advice is greatly appreciated, Thanks
  9. I had interesting sunday morning session. I'm still having cold sweats and flashbacks. I went to my land based spot in the east of the harbour with the hope of catching some kings. Got there before sun up and snavelled a few squid. So I chuck out my squid at bang on high tide. Within a few minutes my reel was screaming. I really need to invest in a baitfeeder as I always have the drag backed off so I don't lose my set up. So I grab my rod and dial up the drag and start winding. Nothing So I start winding in all the slack line. when i comes up tight. The bugger must have been swimming back t
  10. Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, On the weekend hawkesbass was nice enough to help me out and take me down to one of his spots and put us onto a pod of healthy blackfish! After a late night for myself friday night we were up at the 'cracka and on our way to attempt to put a dent in the sydney blackfish population. Whilst hawkesbass was kind enough to tell me to focus on blackfishing and blackfishing only, I couldn't help but throw a whiting rig on my smallest jew killer rod and as luck would have it the manky prawn came up trumps on that and delivered a healthy blue swimmer which wen
