  1. 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.
  2. Hi guys, i occasionally fish around Sydney in 50 to 100m of water just outside the heads. I am looking for a rod to pair with my Saragossa 8000sw (50lb braid) reel and saltist 6500(50lb mono) I always bottom fish and the main intention of the rod will be for that, but I am also interested in jigging, are there any recommendations you guys can give that will marry up to my reels for this style of fishing.
  3. Hi all, First of all I would just like to say thankyou to everyone that contributes to this site and makes it such a great source of information and advice. I have fished a lot of my life but have recently become more involved in lbg fishing and am after advice. I currently run a saragosa 10000 and saltist hyper 9’6” off the rocks as well as a smaller 9 foot setup. I am based in Lake Macquarie and fish at Tomaree when able and have also explored some of Hat Head in search of lbg ledges. My question is: Is livebaiting worth the effort to maximise results? I am looking at
  4. Hi all, i've got 4 or 5 decent Shimano spinning reels, mainly 2000/2500 and would like to expand my arsenal in to some bigger setups (4000/6000) or even try a baitcaster for the first time. I've spent between $30 and $200 each of the Shimano reels i've got and i have to say, to me, there's not much of a difference so i'd rather put the money in to something else. Has anyone had a good experience with purchasing from any of the Chinese websites? Aliexpress.com, DHGate.com, Banggood.com, Wish etc Would be great to find some decent budget stuff - Reels, Rods, Terminal Tackle, Line etc
  5. Hi All, I've been fishing for over 40 years and in all that time I have never understood the reason for the switch which changes the spinning reel from a single direction wind to being able to wind either direction. As an engineer I can usually work out why a piece of equipment has been designed a certain way but that didn't help me in this case. The best I could come up with was maybe to allow line to be pulled off as a fish moves off but flicking the bail arm or backing off the drag are better ways of achieving this. Within reason I have hated that switch as it is another thing which ca
