  1. I hit my nearest sandy beach before dawn this morning. Swell was up a bit, just coming up to the top of the tide. There was a bit of a shore dump and I was not sure where the gutters were, if any. I had a few casts with two Berkely sandworms (50mm) on a paternoster, but got no bites. This is the first time I have tried this approach after reading that some people consider these plastics a fair substitute for live worms. Once there was enough light, I moved down the beach a bit and switched to a Halco Twisty 30g in gold. 3rd cast got a nice tailor. After a few more casts I lost the lure, its leader and a bit of braid right out behind the break, when a knot formed and hung up on a line guide as I cast. That was pretty annoying. I don't like losing gear and particularly hate leaving line in the water. I re-tied my leader and switched to another metal and kept spinning, until the dog walkers and swimmers brought the session to a close. This afternoon, the wind was still quite calm so I went and had a go off the rocks in Ulladulla harbour. I cast a couple of different metal lures for a while, before switching to another gold Twisty. I hooked a small tailor and released it. I also flicked a soft plastic grub around the rocks with no result. I had to leave my spot before I was cut off by the rising tide. Flicking the grub in from the sandy beach in the harbour resulted in a tiny flathead - my first ever fish on a soft plastic. All in all, a pretty good outcome for a work day. I'm keen to keep after the tailor, I'm very new to spinning for them but have come home with a feed more often than not over the last few sessions. The Halco lure seems to work, but I am finding the treble is a bit destructive for releasing fish. Does anyone have any advice on this? Should I just de-barb or would it be better to change to single or assist hooks? Any other lures I should consider?
  2. Hey guys, i’m looking for weekend fishing mates. Im relatively new in Sydney. Im free most weekends. Im interested in land based and off shore. I'm happy to share cost for off shore sessions. I'm on Instagram if you need to get in touch. @serendip_pelagics Cheers,

  4. Hi guys, I caught a whole heap of these fish off the rocks at long reef on the weekend and because I wasn't sure what they were, I ended up throwing them back in. Do any of you guys know what it is? Is it a rockfish of some sort? If so, do they have venomous spines? and are they edible? Cheers
  5. Hey everyone, I'm heading up to Port Macquarie this weekend and Coffs Harbour the next with a few mates. Never been to or fished these areas so I was just wondering if anybody on the forum could provide us with some tips in regards to landbased (beach, rock, breakwall, estuary) locations for fish as well as some good locations for squid, and tips on what bait to use in the recommended spots. Mainly after tailor, kingfish, jewfish, salmon, bonito, bream, flathead. And anything else that would put up a good fight Cheers, Daniel
  6. Hey guys, Just wondering if anybody can help me out. I am going away this weekend up the Central Coast. Heading to Shelley Beach near The Entrance. Does any body know good beaches to fish from there, or any good ledges? Will be my first time fishing up there and want to make the best of the few days ill have. Any help much appreciated in advance. Cheers
