  1. I love surf fishing how ever I'm still relatively new to it, I usually use beach worms, how ever I haven't caught anything larger than 35cm dart I plan on fishing manly beach and want to catch larger fish but I'm not too sure on what to use for bait and what species are out there, I've noticed that the lagoon is full of small mullet ~10cm, does anyone know how effective they are either live or filleted
  2. Hello, do surf poppers work in sheltered beaches - such as Clontarf beach in Middle Harbour - which have minimal wave action, however, still have current? Cheers - Pugz
  3. Hey guys, just wondering what rig/s I should use for whiting off the beach. I've just got some size 6 long shank hooks and I am using pipi's and sandworms as bait.
  4. Hey guys, going to Narrabeen beach at around 12:00 in a few days. I haven't gone beach fishing before and quite obviously, I want to catch fish. I was just wondering how can maximise my chances of actually getting fish and perhaps scoring a feed.
  5. Hi everyone Years ago I rock fished (among many other things) and never more than 1km from Maroubra Beach so checking surf conditions quickly was easy. Fast forward 20 years and western Sydney is a long way for a quick check of sea conditions. Can any of you recommend any live cams to monitor for current wave activity? Also, if there is/are app/s for swell forecasts etc. to ascertain whether it is worthwhile to head to the coast to rock fish? Thanks in advance for any tips....
  6. 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
  7. G'day, I would like to add a couple of lures to the tackle box when I fish the surf and rocks, to replace bait on the occasions that I haven't got any or it isn't convenient to use. I've used a surf popper on a paternoster rig to good effect in the surf, but looking for lures that require a fast retrieve. I will be sticking with my regular beach/rock setup in terms of rods and reel, hoping to just rig a lure and cast when required. Rods: 13-14ft medium to fast taper 2 glass and 1 carbon-fibre; reel: Alvey 650grbc which is geared 2:1. A new setup is out of the question, at this stage. Any advice on types and styles (targeting whiting/flatties/bream up to sambos/tailor and anything else!!!), casting anywhere from 10m-100m... Cheers!
  8. 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
  9. Hi guys, I am planning on heading down to Meroo National Park, just south of Ulludulla next week for a few days camping and mostly FISHING! I am a keen fisho, but amateur at best. I went down and fished this very spot last easter, in search of a good beach Salmon or Tailor. I had researched and learnt all I could about the best ways to catch these guys. No luck on the salmon in the end, caught a nice flatty and a few little ones, a dart, a small trevally and a rock fish of some description…and a tone of bream from Meroo lake..(thoroughly recommend!) I can’t quite attribute my failure for the salmon though.. I was running two types of rigs. A paternoster rig with a 2x 2/0 baitholder hook and BM 2oz sinker with enough trace to stop it all tangling up. The second rig was a simple running ball sinker 1oz-2oz with 45cm leader into a 2/0 baitholder. Both sets were baited with cut segments of pillies, I did try 3/0 ganged hooks, but never got a nibble… Plus I could never set the hooks right, and as we are camping, the further the trip progressed the softer the pillies became(ice kept melting), they eventually just fell of the hooks. I had spotted a school of salmon about 10m offshore hunting through the waves, cast out into the pack, and not a bite. Similarly, I attempted lures into the same school and not a thing. They were definitely salmon because I met a dude later that avo and he said he had caught two whoppers at that same spot! Bugger!! I fished the gutters, the run-in and out tide, the deep holes and the rips… Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have another 3 days next week to get them, and I am not coming home empty handed! Cheers, Liam
  10. Hey All, I was down in Thirroul yesterday as I thought I'd check out Mark Berg's Fish n Chip shop. I took a couple of light outfits as I thought I might take a look at Windang bridge. Anyways I cheched out Thirroul beach and there appeared to be a decent gutter right on the shore line running parallel to the beach. I haven't fished a beach much and the last time would have been about 5 years ago...but thi slloked fishy. So i tied on a tiny SP on my 6 ft alb rod and had a flick. After about 10 min I catch a tiny flattie. I decide I might have better luck with a blade as the tiny plastic was not really staying bottomed. So i switch over to a tiny gold blade. Instant success. I land a flattie to baout 30cm and then another about 28cm. After another 10 min I catch another flattie to about 33cm. So all up a successful short and sharp session for a surf newbie
  11. Recently moving back to the northern beaches I'm looking to get back into some beach fishing. Anyone interested in showing me some good places or trying it out? Nights and weekends. I've been fishing for years so know what it is and where it goes, just lacking the local knowledge, but some great looking gutters and holes around from the recent swell. Dave
