  1. Went out on the tinny on a beautiful morning today around middle harbour and ended up catching one rat 55cm king, all we are using right now is pilchard and squid from the servo. We went around to rocky point at Balmoral and couldn’t catch or see any yakkas or squid. Do you guys have any tips or places I could go to get some yakkas or squid? Thanks 😀
  2. Hi All, (Work in progress – putting this in as a placeholder. Also sourcing more photos to insert) Most of my successes with kingfish and jewfish has been through the use of squid as bait. I prefer squid I have caught myself as I know how fresh it is and how it has been handled. My introduction to squid fishing with jigs was pretty basic. I have put in a lot of hours in since then to refine my technique with a few aha moments along the way. I thought I’d compile some of the advice columns I’ve put together into one post. To give credit to those before me, @slinkymalinky did an e
  3. Hi guys, I am chasing jewies ,flatys and squid in june or july do you have any recommendations of were to go and what to use i am on a boat we will also be placing crab pots please help me regards Burtos fishing
  4. Hi all Just a quick report on a trip even if the kingfish was undersize last Wednesday. Left Patonga boat ramp about 7am with a smooth ride over a moderate swell straignt past West head due to the swell and safe boating fishing solo. I decided to head for Palm Beach Ferry whalf to get a squid for bait. After a couple of casts I found a small squid and decided to slow troll mid water around the moored boats. Half way through the mooring my rod bends over so I drag it into open water and start playing the fish. Short fight on heavy line produced a 60cm King with amazing purple h
  5. Hey raiders, where’s some go to spots around the west side of Lake Macquarie to jig for some squid land based? Any jetty’s around? The only place I know where there is some is styles point at Rathmines, but every time I go there they are not interested in my jig no matter what I do. I’ve rubbed prawn, anti seed oil, pilchard and S factor on my jig but they are still not interested, but I see heaps of them smashing the surface, so they are obviously hungry. Ive tried many different colours and sizes to no avail. It’s frustrating as hell!!!! many tips please it’s driving
  6. Hey guys! new to the forum, just wondering if you guys have any tips and tricks about fishing west side of Lake Macquarie, I’m in the middle of getting a boat but for now I’ll only be fishing land based, I usually go out to Wangi near the caravan park and fish half pilchard and squid for bait with not much luck, catch a fair few 30-40cm bream but main target fish are flathead. Can’t catch a flathead if my life depended on it. Other places to go are coal point off the rocks on the point, And off the rocks near club Catalina at Rathmines. Heading out to a jetty tomorrow morning to try and get so
  7. Hey, I'm about to take a trip down to Jervis bay in a few weeks I was wondering if anybody knows any good wharf, jetty , or easy accesible cliffs to fish at. Gonna be there for a week is there anything I should know? I have research Murray beach boat wharf and husskison wharf any idea if there any good? Looking to fish for squids, kingys, jewies or anything of decent size there.
  8. Hey guys, heading down to manly and just asking about fishing spots around there? Do the rocks at manly cove produce good stuff.Squid? Flathead? Or is it worth flicking SP’s at the manly cove beach? Open to all info because I’m a bit new to this area. Ps , (I will have 2 outfits with me, a light Pelagic rod (8kg rod, 15lb braid 30lb leader and I will also have a lighter rod (2-4kg 8lb braid 12lb leader) I’m mainly looking for squid and flathead, but also wouldn’t mind having a crack at those kings or really anything that bites and fights 😀 Thanks Will
  9. Hi all, in the central coast this weekend and want to do some land based quid fishing. Potentially have access to kayaks. Any reports on squid action in the central coast? thanks
  10. Living on the Central Coast and working in Sydney means leaving early 5 days a week to miss the traffic. I'm thinking that I should not be so keen to get to the office but bring a rod and gear with me and check out some areas along the way. Work is at Rhodes, so trying anywhere close is not going to happen so I'm asking for ideas where I can have a go (land based) and I'd love to target squid. Thanks, and I look forward to writing a bit about the experience. TC.
  11. Left the ramp at 5am for 1 mission and 1 mission only, successfully hook a kingi and get it in the boat for my cousins first king(and let him fight it). Grabbed some Pillies on the way to the ramp and as soon as we got there we headed to spot x and gathered some squid, one decent squid in that spot and off we were to another spot, got 6 squid out of that spot and 3 were humungous so we had enough baits for the day. Fished for more squid cause there was still 2hours till high tide and nothing. 2hours later headed to the kingi spot near north head and as soon as we got there every boat was hooke
  12. Hi All. Heading to Jervis Bay with my brother for 10 days after Anzac Day. Was wondering if anyone has been getting a few kings "inside" the bay ie Point Perp, Middle Grounds, Longnose etc? Not after specific locations, just info if they are still around in numbers? As want to minimise the amount of gear we take down if they aren't really about. Also any squid about at the moment? Should we take down extra jigs due to jackets biting you off? Last year at the same time we lost 22 jigs in 7 days, was a expensive BUT rewarding trip. Any info would be greatly appreciate,
  13. Hello, I just recently signed up to fishRaider due to my inability to catch Jewfish. I would love to know rigs and WHERE, Without giving me your secret spots. I live near manly in Sydney and have no clue where is best, i would prefer not to travel long distances and usually fish the Spit bridge, 40 baskets, little manly, north harbour reserve and clontarf. Anyone have any key locations and tips, thanks in advance
  14. Hey everyone, managed to head out on thursday for a nice change being one of the only times going out during the week thats not in the holidays. Our plan was to target kingfish and hopefully bag a few keepers, so started out nice and early hitting squid an hour before dark at watts reefs, didnt catch any. We moved over to our usual spot at kurnell at first light and boated 4 live squid perfect for kingys. We decided to anchor at the drums with a strong burley trail to start catching some nice fish (which usually works well for us this time of year) after 30mins with no takers or even fish
  15. Hey raiders Week 2 so on the 3/1/19 we arrive back at Jervis Bay with a rumour or 2 that the water had heated up and kings were starting to show up after the 2nd group run out of fuel on the highway a 5am start turned into a 6:30am start , boat ramp packed we finally managed to get on water 10 yakkas in the boat in 5 mins he head to squid grounds and they were very picky took us 3 locations to land the 1st so we left him in the water to attract his mates 15 mins lates 6 of his friends in the tank we then head to straight to point to find no boats, hmm worrying, first 2
  16. Hey raiders Week 1 so on the 23/12/18 I headed down to Jervis Bay to chase some the start of the kings with a mate Arrived on the squid grounds and within 5 mins we had 3 squid they were bloody firing probably something to do with the overcast/raining conditions after the next hour we had 15 squid Our plan was to head to point perp but the swell was way to large to get there so we settled for middle gorunds were we managed 1 rat 59cm king before conditions worsened so we called it a day 24/12/18 loaded with Fresh squid he headed straight to point we trolled f
  17. Hey raiders Been awhile since my last post due to winter and nothing worth posting about So lately I’ve been setting out with trying the catch the first kingfish of the season (Always the hardest) So after roughly 2-3 trips returning with a donut, This weekend produced the goods ——Saturday—- So as normal day starts with catching some fresh live squid for bait and within about 1 hour off cronulla we had 10 lives ready to set out With the conditions over the weekend not ideal for offshore fishing we set out in the hacking
  18. Hey raiders 6am start at Yowie Bay as most of my reports go straight off to catch some squid just off cronulla, boy we’re they fired up! Within a hour half we had 9 perfect live baits and 2 high 20s squid for dinner ready to go the swell still very big out the heads and south was not ideal , so we tryed along the moard boats along lilli pilli marking plentiful bait almost everywhere no marks though so we headed into Gymea for basically the same result after 2 hours of potting slowly around we had nothing then I noticed some birds hitting the surface plus a couple bust ups in the di
  19. Hey guys just joined this forum. Just wanted to say hello and I’ll be looking forward to posting some reports I usually fish outside based in Sydney but also go upto Port Stephens a lot 😎
  20. Hi Guys, Just wanted to see if anyone can give me any ideas on how to clean my squid jigs, reason being is because they smell like crap from the EgiMax spray I use all the time. What is the best way to clean them as well as my tackle box and how often should I clean and service my reels? Thank You Zaki
  21. Hi radiers, Went for a quick squid flick last Thursday night with a mate just to get out of the house for a bit. I was hoping to get a couple for bit when i go out on the kayak next time, but i wasn't expecting to get anything like i did. after about 15mins of flicking i thought i got a snag, but then it started running and kept running!! ended up getting this specimen, which measured 40cm hood and 95cm to the top of the candle. more than enough for a couple of S&P squid dinners, while still having enough for some bait. tight lines
  22. Hey Guys, Over the last couple of weekends I’ve been heading early in the morning in Middle Harbour in hopes of some squid for bait, every trip has produced zilch. I’ve tried around the spit and around Quaker’s hat, consistently throwing at least 30 casts. Is anyone else having no luck in Middle Harbour or is it just me? Kind Regards, KR
  23. After a long time absent from fishing with Uni and everything, a friend messages me Sunday night, "reckon you will be up by 4:30, Monday morning?, Gonna fish for some squid". Didn't even bother sleeping, was already was out till pretty late. We still ended up arriving at Wally's wharf by 6:30am (behind schedule). We first drifted around the seaweed patches near Jibbon beach and jeez, it was damn cold. Drifted 3 times before we headed off to another location with nothing in the bag. the water here, dropped of to about 7-9m of water and took 20seconds for the squid jig to sink (not su
  24. Took my boat to the local dealer yesterday for a routine service on my 60 ETEC. He rang yesterday to say it’s running well but needs a new solenoid, under warranty. Left it overnight as the part needed to be ordered. Well, it didn’t come in today, so I am boatless for a few days. I could have picked it up and used it on the weekend then take it back next week but I’ve lost my voice and am pretty crook with a cold, so I thought I’d rest up... but... I’m going stir crazy! I stopped in for a look at a breakwall near home this afternoon. Good to see the luderick are looking active. Then I spo
