  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. Hi Raiders, I would appreciate if someone could take me along a beach fishing session. I have done estuary fishing, a bit of rock fishing and mostly break wall based fishing for the last 6 years. Haven't done much beach fishing. Following are my information: Name: Tan Location: Parramatta Fishing technique: Beach fishing on bait Availability: Weekends typically Preferred location: Northern beaches, Dee why, La Perouse Gear: I have got a 12 ft rod spooled with 20lb braid for beach. Hoping to hear from someone. Cheers
  4. Hi guys, just looking for some general info. Want to target sharks either from shore or possibly if I hire a boat. Looking to go anywhere in the Northern beaches from Manly up to Palm beach. What would be my best bet? Just looking to get into some of the smaller species to start with, bronzies etc. Any ideas as to best spots to start from? Am I a bit early and better to wait til summer or could it still be possible now. Cheers
  5. Hi all. I'm new to Fishraider and also my first post. I live in Manly area and I'm looking for someone who might want to go for a fish sometimes on weekends who could also show me a few spots and give some tips. Please, PM me if interested. Cheers
  6. After moving to the Sutherland shire I don't often get to fish my favourite spots where I used to live on the northern beaches, but I got a chance to fish on sunday morning. I rocked up(pun intended) to one of my favourite ledges at sunrise timed perfectly with a major solarlunar period and an approaching lowtide and started spinning. I started of with a big stick bait hoping to tempt an early morning king fish, after about half an hour I decided to switch to my lighter rod with a home made metal lure on it. 15 minutes later I hooked up but the 16 lb leader was definitely not enough as i
  7. A free afternoon and an over abundance of salted pilchards and preserved beach worms taking up far too much space in the family freezer was all the reason I needed to head out and fish the afternoon high tide on "Gone Fishing Day". Conditions on the northern beaches were overcast and choppy. Not a lot of visible structure but at least the onshore wind was fairly light so conditions were fishable, and after a 45 minute drive there was no way I wasn't going to be wetting a line. Got started around 4pm with two hours remaining of the run in tide. Started with the beach worms, but even with a
  8. 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 dece
  9. Guys Just wanted to share a couple of pictures of two jewies caught from the beach last weekend and this weekend on my last two outings. First, was an 83cm capture by my dad off the northern beaches last Sunday. Second, was an 88cm capture caught by myself on a mid nth coast beach. happy to share a good patch of form, and may it continue! JT
  10. With the calm wind and low swell, I thought it would be ideal for beach fishing so I gave one of the northern beaches a shot during the night tide. There were plenty of big bites and strikes but from a bunch of undesired species - 1xbanjo shark; 4xshovel nose shark; 1x car shark. So there was plenty of action .. I managed to get one good sized 51cm tailor after an hour after the tide change, and I suspect I dropped a smaller tailor too. I lost what I suspected to be a big ray or large shark that took plenty of line too. So it seems like the beaches are starting to fish a bit better.
  11. Fishing drought (in terms of success, not opportunity) finally over. Landed my PB flathead (73cm) and a decent tailor (45cm) from the surf.
  12. With the sea's being flat and the nice sunrise high tides went off the rocks for a fishing session with my young niece... the 2nd time she has ever been fishing as mum is not a fan haha. Baby sitting for some brownie points !!! Fished warriewood rocks as its a nice easy and relatively safe walk to the spot! Beautiful clear day with light wind and glassy seas! We saw lots of surface action with bonitos hitting the surface of the water. Landed a few for bait... caught on unweighted pillies and send out some thin strips on a paternoster. 8am: The tides on the way out and one of the bottom
  13. Launched off Palm beach boat ramp at Iluka Rd for the 1st time with out drama! Headed off towards the ferry wharf for yakkas and squids and was out past the heads by 730am. Sea was almost glassy with 3 or 4 other boats around us. went out to 30m and began dropping liveys and strip baits towards the bottom. no interest in our yakkas and the squid came back demolished by leatherjackets.... Tried this without success for 3 hrs then decided to try off south palm (one of my fav land-based spots!) sitting about 40m offshore and drifting in 12m+ of water came across a school of slimies and tons o
  14. Swell was looking nice today at <3ft easterly with high tide around 11am so we decided to make the LONG trek to north palmy to a ledge thats good for these conditions...... caught our yakka's at the local wharf but no squid today shoulders burning we made the walk in darkness....i drew the short straw again and was carrying one of the buckets... rigged up before first light and had the first livey out just as the sun broke. 30 mins later the big rod did the damage with the reel screaming and the line running out to the horizon. the first run was pretty short and we managed to get a loo
