  1. We started off on Friday night gathering only three squid. We slept on the boat at a public mooring and got up at 3:45. We headed towards our squiding grounds and got 25 squid in a few drifts. We then headed towards some of our kingie spots and at the first spot we marked a schoolof big kings. I got first drop and chucked down a live squid. After trolling it for about 30 seconds it got taken. On 6.5kg of drag and 60lb leader it was pulling drag very quickly. I tightened up but a bit too late and it got me in the structure. Next drop was my mates, down went the live squid and even more drag. Th
  2. Sup boys I'm an experienced fisherman, hoping to catch a trip with others. I have my own gear and tackle and would be more than happy to be a deckie/assist others on the trip. Done most of my fishing in NZ, north island but I've moved here now hoping to continue what I enjoy doing. Happy to split costs. PM
  3. Gday all, looking to chase kingfish land based during winter and help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I am down to use lures or baits just want a kingy. Am able to fish Sydney harbour and middle harbour at the moment my land based out fit is a 9’6 crostage pe 1.5-3.5 and a spheros 8k spooled with 40lb braid
  4. Just arrived in Nambucca this afternoon and had a look at the breakwall, looks good with lots of current. Just wondering if anyone knows of any kings being caught around there recently or Jews, I have my 60lb gear with along with some big stickbaits and slapstix. Where should I start?
  5. 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.
  6. Hi all Just a quick report on a trip even if the kingfish was undersize last Wednesday. Left Patonga boat ramp about 7am with a smooth ride over a moderate swell straignt past West head due to the swell and safe boating fishing solo. I decided to head for Palm Beach Ferry whalf to get a squid for bait. After a couple of casts I found a small squid and decided to slow troll mid water around the moored boats. Half way through the mooring my rod bends over so I drag it into open water and start playing the fish. Short fight on heavy line produced a 60cm King with amazing purple h
  7. With work imposing forced leave, I took the opportunity to fish with the kayak gang during my holidays. I was supposed to meet the guys at the ramp by 6am but I had trouble sleeping the night before and woke up late 5:45am! With only 15mins to get ready I messaged the guys that I would be late and not to wait up for me. Made it to the ramp by 6:20 and they were still getting ready, phew. On the way to catch livies we sounded a school of bait in the middle of the channel, a quick drop and I hook just one sardine and the school quickly disappeared. The next few hours we spend ages tryi
  8. What started out as a below average session turned out to be a great day on the yak. We were on the water by 6:30am, with a forecast of moderate winds and some rain. Luckily no rain, but it was windy every now and then which settled to a breeze by the arvo. We located the wreck but we all struggled to catch any live bait, all day! I suspect the rain we received yesterday chased all the bait away or maybe its just the full moon, who knows! Even with burley I couldn't catch any livies, but I did manage pinkies, leather jackets, bream and a legal trevally all on the sabiki rig with tiny bits
  9. Hey, I'm about to take a trip down to Jervis bay in a few weeks I was wondering if anybody knows any good wharf, jetty , or easy accesible cliffs to fish at. Gonna be there for a week is there anything I should know? I have research Murray beach boat wharf and husskison wharf any idea if there any good? Looking to fish for squids, kingys, jewies or anything of decent size there.
  10. 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
  11. Headed out Sunday in the new 5m CC for its first fish. Very very excited. Wind was up but ramp was empty at 515am so a great start to the day. Fished with Reelcrazy and Pickles, both whom I met through Fishraider. Fished the harbour, collecting yakkas and squid for a couple of hours. Small jigs on the drift did the damage on the squid boating around 7 candy sized and one considerably bigger. Yakkas were plentiful. Cruised around the various drums/bouys/wedding cakes without much luck. Not a heap of bait present and no arches. Around 11am we were around sow and pigs and before
  12. Hi all, I have recently picked up fishing after a good few years off and am looking for some local advice about the reefs, fish seasons and they way to fish for certain fish I was allowed to get a 510 Ocean spirit this year. I have been fishing out of Terrigal and Brisbane waters mostly. When I head out of Terrigal I have been fishing Foggies, Tuggerah reef and Terrigal/Forries tank. When I head out of Brisbane waters I fish Box head for yakka and then head out to west reef. I have been fishing for Kingfish, Mulloway/Jew and Snapper at these spots. I usually use live yakka / w
  13. Hello all, I'm new on here and have spent a load of time reading up on advice etc however looking for some specific info for fishing JB area particularly at either Abrahams Bosom or Honeymoon bay, will be heading that way this coming long weekend with a mate and we are keen to have a crack at some kingies mainly. Has this area been fishing ok and what have you got results with? Appreciate any help I can get! Cheers.
  14. Hi Fishraiders, Saturday evening, while sitting in a bar, I got a call from a good fishing buddy Mat asking if I was free the next day for a chance at a 1m kingfish. While very short notice (found out later someone had pulled out of the planned trip) the plans I had for Sunday could be changed pretty easily. Said I was in and we made some initial plans. Went home and sorted out some food and gear for the trip and set the alarm for 4am. Mat rocked up at mine and we put the gear in my car, left his new car in my garage then drove West to Mark’s place where the boat was st
  15. G'day guys, I'm back again with another report where I get into some strife (including smokings lol) on the Parramatta River once again. Using my 2-4kg 7' foot rod and 6lb line and leader which I had intended to chase bream with, I ran into a school of legal kings inshore and it was mayhem for a short half hour. I was doing my usual repertoire of small hops and letting the lure hit the bottom when I got a super solid hookup as a kingfish took a liking to a Zman slim swimz in midnight oil (new release colour this year). It hit the ground running and there wasn't anything I
  16. So I thought I'd head out early to catch the 2 hours run in before high tide and try to nab a couple of flatties. Got down to the Cook's river breakwall at Kyeemagh at around 0730 with my 7' 2-4kg rod and Daiwa 2500 reel which is spooled with 14lb Fireline and an 8 lb fluoro leader, rigged it up with a 1/8 oz jighead and loaded on a 3" ZMan MinnowZ in bloodworm colour and cast in towards the bridge on General Holmes drive. First cast at 0740, 3rd cast around 0742 and I was on! Line came screaming off and then it stopped, I thought I was onto a flattie at first, but then zzzzzzzzzz.......l
  17. Fishing in Sydney Harbour for Kingfish. After no squid and a difficult session looking for small Yakkas some larger Yakkas were caught along with many Mados. The point near the Spit Bridge held some rather timid but investigative Kingfish that swarmed in a small school right behind the boat. After boating 6 (just below legal and all released), the kings became more timid and less investigative. After multiple location changes middle harbour produced a giant Flathead and some good Red Big Eyes. Water temp varied: 14c degrees at Roseville and 20c at north head. Kings were caught in about
  18. I am very aware that kings prefer extremely fresh baits. Due to the fact that I am a land based fisho at the moment. I have been having some trouble getting onto some Squid and Yakkas. Are there any baits you can buy that actually are known to work or would it just be better to use some big poppers and slugs (any good ones). James
  19. Fished in the Port Hacking on Friday with my dad in my boat. Plan was to chase surface fish early, pump some nippers, fish the shallows than head back to the ramp at 1030 and swap dad for my wife and 2 boys, aged 3 & 5. Launched from Grays Point at 600 and headed to lilli pilli. Just on sun rise the whole area was alive with Pilchard schools every direct had fish rippling on the surface and the sounder regularly blackout with the schools. I started casting a sluggo, which had worked on previous trips and dad fished live bait. After 15 minutes off no hits i swapped to my live bait
  20. Hey all went out last Thursday and posted "Botany Bay mixed bag and lost the big one" So we headed out today again in search of some larger kings inside the bay but also with the idea in mind of still catching a feed of fish. So we headed to our usual squid grounds where we caught 5 nice sized squid I was really tempted to keep some for a feed but decided to send them out live. We then bounced around the bay trying to find the baitschools and in-turn the Kingfish we tried the drums and molineaux but it being a weekend there were 22 boats, 4 kayaks and a team of divers there with a few s
  21. Hey everyone, managed to head out on thursday for a nice change being one of the only times going out during the week thats not in the holidays. Our plan was to target kingfish and hopefully bag a few keepers, so started out nice and early hitting squid an hour before dark at watts reefs, didnt catch any. We moved over to our usual spot at kurnell at first light and boated 4 live squid perfect for kingys. We decided to anchor at the drums with a strong burley trail to start catching some nice fish (which usually works well for us this time of year) after 30mins with no takers or even fish
  22. We are regular visitors to Forster and were recently up there for 2 weeks. The weather was not the best with large swells and annoying wind as a result from the Cyclone in Queensland. We did however manage to get some fishing in and a number of “firsts”. With bad weather we were confined to the lake so I took my 4 year old out to look for dolphins. I had just purchased 2 crab traps on special a day earlier and we dropped them further up the lake while we went Dolphin hunting. Having found and followed the dolphins for a while he soon got bored and we dropped a line over. He caught 2 small flat
  23. Hey raiders sorry for the late report but been super busy Uncle recently purchased and new boat and rings me saying he’s keen to hit the fads I’ve never been more then 2kms offshore so to say i was stoked would be a understatement so $200 of skirts and and tackle later.... 5: 30 am start port kembla boat ramp Boat in water and a 2 min drive away from the boat ramp we arrive at bait grounds , within 30 mins and first light we had 25+ yakkas Headed out to the five islands and trolled them around within a hour half we only had 3 undersize kings biggest going 63
  24. Hey guys, Just seeing if anyone would be interested in going out for a land based session around the Jervis Bay area chasing Kings or other pelagics. I’ve never fished there before, but have read a bit about it on here. Someone with a bit of local knowledge would be a bonus but not fussed if you don’t, just be good to get out there and have a crack! cheers 🤙🏻
