    Nelson bay kingies

    Hey all long time between posts. Been up at the bay for a couple of weeks now and been trying to catch a kingie (only ever caught one). Was close to catching one at the marina yesterday because some spearfishernan swam across from the other breakwall under my line and speared a good size kingie right under where I was. Wasn't too happy about that, tell me if I'm wrong? Lol Only here for 1 more day but keen to have a crack tomorrow morning if anyone is keen for a partner for some rock fishing or if your boating Im Happy to contribute and clean etc. Currently been trying ganged garfish with a skirt, cast and retrieving like a lure from marina and rocks.

    Epoxys and FCL Labo Lures

    Howdy Raiders, Just thought id start a thread about FCL labo lures as they are fantastic but there are few things about these lures that id like to discuss. Firstly they have amazing finishes and work amazing! however, they seem to not epoxied at all and damage very easily even just from the impact with the water when casting. As well a this they are made of a high density foam which is supposed to not take on water which is false i had a guy run over my ebipop today in his jetski and i lost the lure for about 2hrs by the time it was located it was barely on the surface with cup facing the sky vertical in the water and weighed a maybe 10 - 20% more. I would like to epoxy my FCL lures but i have a few minor concerns id like help with, A. the surface lures being slightly heavier and not being as effective B. the epoxy not working with the paint/foiling on the lure and causing bubbling. I plan to use Devcon 2 ton epoxy i have ordered from the states it seems to be what a lot of lure makers recommend that wont effect the paint. PLEASE IF ANYONE HAS TRIED THIS ON OTHER LURES OR CAN WEIGH IN ON THE SUBJECT OF EPOXYS or FCL LABO MUCH APPRECIATED. THANKS RAIDERS!!
  3. I spend four hours in two sessions spinning at Shark Point (Clovelly) in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs over this weekend. Saturday 10:30-13:00, light NE blowing, 0.5-1.0m NE swell, partly cloudy, relatively clear water Sunday 05:30-07:00, light NW at first, turned into a gusty SW by about 06:45, better wash this morning than yesterday No fish were caught. Lures used were metal slices (gold and silver around 60g), surecatch 85 gram metal jig (pink/chrome), blue Halco 125mm popper and a white one this morning with the red head. Also, this morning I tried some of those smelly soft plastics with 6/0 Gamakatsu for jews or kings. Smidgey I think is the name... Had fun, as these were my first two sessions since 1996 or so, despite not catching anything except seeing three pods of dolphins and a lone seal. Previously I used to love fishing the Eastern Suburbs rocks....
  4. Got some time to spend wetting my lines for a feed and hoping to hook up with some fisho's to share the fun with. Flexible with location in Sydney keen for most times. Cheers, Pat

    Early morning Trap

    Got out to the trap at 6am (bottom of the tide) after watching for 10 min the big waves were only just trickling over the rocks. hooked up 3 ~50-60cm salmon on metal slugs but they all spat the hooks. 2 were hook on the surface after some exciting strikes. 2 hours no fish landed i called it a day (the tide and swell were rising and i was at the trap....)

    Luderick off the rocks

    Hey all, I've been having some good success with fishing for luderick off jetties, however after trying a few times I haven't caught any at all off the rocks yet. What I don't understand is, with the swell and the chop, the float just keeps getting pushed around everywhere, going under, getting sucked out and generally not performing how I hoped. Where are you supposed to put the float, out past the wash where it can sit (relatively) calm? Any advice on using a float from the rocks would be appreciate. I use a running float rig. Thanks!
