  2. Hey guys, been playing with the idea of doing some shark beach fishing, however, I haven't yet because I have struggled to find bait big enough for sharks. I know salmon are good for sharks but where I am we don't catch many of those. What we do catch a lot of is shovelnose sharks. Are these a protected species in nsw? has anybody tryed using them as bait? Pls let me now. cheers - pugz /
  3. Hey everyone, just recently me and a mate went fishing at a beach in Mosman, whilst we didn't catch many fish it was a great day. So we aren't very experienced at fishing from a beach of any manner, we have tried surf beaches before with no success, so you can see why the day before when we were planning this trip we were doubtful about how this expedition was going to unfold. We decided that if we were going to catch fish we must wake up early so as planned, the next day our alarm went off at 5 am. We tiredly gathered our stuff and made our way to the relatively calm beach. It was a hor
  4. Hey everyone, I'm looking to get into the beach shark fishing scene and I would like to use an Alvey reel. Are Alvey reels adequate for fighting such powerful fish? Is there a steep learning curve? Would a second hand $20 Alvey of gumtree still work well enough to catch sharks? Would this reel be more suitable for catching sharks https://www.fishingtackleshop.com.au/rovex-endurance-reels.html? Please let me know. Cheers?.
  5. Hi all, First time post. I just started fishing about 3 months ago and have been out about once a week since, and on the weekend had the biggest catch I've ever had. Fishing just south of the entrance at night, with squid for bait, and caught this shark, has been the highlight of fishing so far. Released it back in the water and watched it swim away. I think fishing is a bit like gambling, once you have a big win you get hooked. Cant wait to throw the line in again and see what we catch.

  7. Went out fishing for Jews on Friday night from 5.30pm to 8pm. Home by 8.30 so was able to claim a day Snapper fishing for Saturday morning. Getting that leave pass was touch and go but I held fast and I got it issued. Without losing giving a compromise as a trade as well. Launched Bellambi around 6am and slowly headed off to one of the spot X's. Was actually really lumpy and we were being thrown around a fair bit. We were side on to the anchor as the wind and current were equally as strong. Sent the first plastic out and let it flutter in the current for about 5 min and then paid the con
  8. Started fishing fishing at botany at 8am today. It was windy and not the best of conditions, but glad there was no rain. Did not see the shark or had any fish destroyed, but I did catch its buddy the Remora which is usually around the shark. Awesome fish. My son wanted to eat it. He likes to try all fish but i explained that its better to let this beautiful fish go. Just before throwing the fish back he wanted to try its suction head on the Esky. I couldn't believe how strong it was. I could not remove the fish it was stuck. I had to put water on top of it and slide down the si
  9. 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
  10. Having fished for the majority of my life, I'm only just discovering the fun of boat & LB game fishing. I'm interested in doing some shark fishing off the beach this summer. I'm aiming to target small-medium Sharks around 6ft, with a TLD50 50lb mono. I've gathered a few questions I can't really find answers to, and hoping some experienced fishermen can help. Will 150lb momoi mono leader do the job? Do you prefer solid wire or stranded flexible cable? I plan to kayak my baits out. What's the best anchoring option, running weight or a break-away system? I was thinking of anchor
