  1. Hello everyone, I'm getting into lure fishing, and looking for some advice on a rod and reel to buy. I will mainly be fishing land based for bream, fleathead, whiting etc. in estuaries in and around Sydney, using a variety of lures such as soft plastics, poppers, crankbaits etc. I'm trying to find a 2 piece graphite rod that is roughly 7'6, with a cast weight of around 1-10g or 1-7/8g. I've been looking at the Daiwa TD HYPER 763LXS ROD. Everything about it seems good but it is a 3 piece, I think that may have an impact on sensitivity/feeling bites, if anyone has any experience with a 3 pi
  2. Has anyone had anything to do with the new fuji tangle free guides that are mounted on a 70deg angle? They kind of look like they might create a bit of resistance when casting.... Probably minimal using braid but surely noticable using mono?
  3. Hey Crew, I am in the market for a couple of new rods as my old ones are on the way out and are pretty limited. 6' Jarvis Walker telescopics from a shop... surprisingly decent for $25! I know tele's are generally looked down upon, any forum search will reveal hundreds of people saying just get a 2 or 3 piece. And I get that. However I really love the form factor. Having a backpack with a bit of tackle and two light rods already rigged up and ready to go on the side is a really nice way to fish, even if you only have 15 minutes to have a go. The selection in Australia is pre
  4. Hi all! Just going to be running through some of the gear I use for inshore kingfishing. First off, my light setup. My reel is a Shimano Stradic 1000, a new addition, spooled up with some lower end (cheaper) 6lb braid and I usually run 10lb mono leader. It is a great little reel with a good amount of drag, just enough to stop those rat kings! This reel is paired up with an Atomic Arrowz Estuary 7 foot, with a 3-10lb line rating. This rod goes great with the reel, strong, light and it is stiff enough that I feel confident casting heavier lures on it without it breaking!

    new rod?

    any one have any reconmendations for a new rod and reel that i can use when using sp for bream and flathead.
  6. Hi Raiders, I've been looking around and came across a Zebco Dock Demon. Further investigation shows that there are a few of these tiny/micro rods floating around. In a similar vein, there are "pen" rods that are telescopic and exceedingly small. One of the obvious aspects of something like this is the portability, which got me thinking about being able to take one bushwalking, or even in my backpack "just in case" you know? Another interesting and seemingly counter-intuitive aspect is that some of them seem nigh-indestructible. I have broken a telescoping rod fighting a shark before
  7. Hi Fisher Folk, I recently had a terrible push biking + fishing rods accident that has left both my favourite rod and integrity shattered. As a result i'm looking for a new shore jigging rod to fill the void of my new made 5 piece Daiwa Lateo 11MH. It was a great rod, particularly the extra length (11ft) but looking for something slightly nicer and willing to spend around $300-500. Looking online its difficult to find many similar shore jigging style rods on the Australian market that offer similar quality or style. I have however come across and read promising things about the Palms S
  8. Just wondering what rod and line I should get for shark fishing from the surf I already have a reel (penn spinfisher ssm 950) I'm thinking about getting some form of 65lb multicoloured braid and I'm wanting a rod around the 10-12ft mark. It will mostly be used for bronze whalers and gummies but there is also the chance of mulloway
  9. Hi Fishraiders, After trading in the sailboat on a fishing boat, I made an initial investment in a set of entry level reels to get started for in-shore and near offshore fishing. Shimano Sedona 2500 Shimano Symetre 4000 Shimano Baitrunner 6000 Shimano TLD 25 , The two bigger reels came with cheap rods as part of a package. Last night (on the turn of the tide) I hooked up to a 4 foot gummy shark on the Baitrunner and the Shimano Eclipse 8-12 Kg rod broke in half. So I'm looking for a replacement. My budget is $80-$120. (Sneakyfisho have a 20% off sale on rods now.) This will be my mai
  10. Hi everyone, I am new to this forum but have been an ardent recreational fisherman for a long time. Although I have fished & caught many species my favourite is still bream!! Nobody can deny the feeling of catching a Jewie or Kingy or any other type of game fish for that matter, but there's still something special about bream.. I purchased a pfleuger trion rod about a year ago from BCF and attached a Shimano Symetre 2500 reel. I absolutely loved the feel and the strength of the rod. I have used it with both plastics & live bait (prawns, yabbies & worms) and have had great success
  11. Hi Guys & Gals, I have just recently got my 1st boat, I got excited and brought a heap of boat rods with big shimano bait runners. I'm allowed to buy a rod for christmas, trying to find somthing between drifting for flatties but would do o.k with a just over legal king. Does anyone have any suggestions my budget is $350-$400 incl line???? Pete'....
