  1. Had the original plan of flicking for flathead and salmon off the beach with plastics no hits so we went and collected weed for bait and burley and tried for luderick, they were in massive numbers all good size but very finicky when eating we just used a tiny split shot to the hook even the floats would spook them and dropped leaders to 4/6lb. Bite was slow but managed a few biggest going 42cm in the pic below
  2. Tried to escape the wing hit the piers in Walsh bay with bread and pilchard caught a few decent trevally on Pilchard and bread, consistent burley and leaving the bail open drifting unweighted baits in the trail worked best a lot of takes from yakkas or smaller trevally I presume. Wind made it extremely hard but we still managed
  3. Went out Friday night in hope for salmon first cast out with a squid head under a float, was collecting yakka and had a look at my rod and watched it buckle over in the holder pulled a 46cm salmon out casted metals nothing wanted some the salmon still had live white bait in its mouth. after the sun set I threw a live yakka out and dropped something big inconsistent runs and big head shakes guessing a Jew or shark. Lost after 10min fight, threw another yakka out and 2min later hooked a nice pj quick photo and good release
  4. Went to spot x in the harbour to target some calminari and cuttle tried for an hour with the 1.5 jugs no hope on cuttle one small arrow a nice surprise considering we don’t usually get them sent it out live and it was chopped in half about 20min later, switched to the 2.2 and 2.5 jigs fished the deeper water and managed 4 nice calamari and three cuttle fish perfect bait size
  5. Sup boys I'm an experienced fisherman, hoping to catch a trip with others. I have my own gear and tackle and would be more than happy to be a deckie/assist others on the trip. Done most of my fishing in NZ, north island but I've moved here now hoping to continue what I enjoy doing. Happy to split costs. PM
  6. Gday all, looking to chase kingfish land based during winter and help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I am down to use lures or baits just want a kingy. Am able to fish Sydney harbour and middle harbour at the moment my land based out fit is a 9’6 crostage pe 1.5-3.5 and a spheros 8k spooled with 40lb braid
  7. Throwing around a paddle tail and snagged a beaut luderick and a first too, will be a tricky Pb to beat I think 42cm.
  8. Went for a fish yesterday started in rose bay throw spf lures duckz in cola and sunrise shimmer two flathead landed 45 and 57 with a few dropped, moved to pier 8 in Walsh bay and had a nice haul of small trevally 30-37cm all released taken on bread and pilchard cubes then we walked around casting metals and found a lot of bustups of big tailor all caught 45-55cm on metals and spf lures
  9. New member looking for some advice. I’m a pom living in Sydney on a working holiday visa, Fished in the UK but doesn’t come close to fishing down under, I’ve had reasonable success over the past few months catching bream, flathead and trevally mostly Fished with baits, Over the past few weeks I’ve swapped over to try fish with lures, and really enjoying trolling from my kayak. The advice I’m looking for is to try catch some new species, specifically Jewfish or Kingfish. Does anyone have any tips for trolling a kayak for these fish? Also any spots to recommend? Iv bee
  10. Wondering if anyone has ever fished this part of the lane cove river as I can’t find many posts referring to this section (upstream of weir) which is supposedly freshwater. After a bit of research I discovered fishing IS legal a wee way up the river. some questions I have - what kind of species live up there ? - what kind of gear/bait/lure is optimal? many thanks from the empty esky
  11. 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
  12. Hi All, I've learnt a lot from this forum over the years so thought I'd share a few tips on what's been working for me when targeting Sydney Harbour bream on topwater lures. It's an extremely addictive and accessible way to fish if you live in the city. Once you've cracked the code you'll be hesitant to throw much else for bream when targeting them with lures. Most of my experience is based on my local waterway which is Blackwattle Bay / Rozelle Bay. I also have no boat or kayak so fish exclusively from the shore. The same bream rules apply for where to find them - look for
  13. Hey Guys, just wondering if it is safe to fish around Jibbon Bombora just outside Port Hacking, and if so what is the best way to go about it? Cheers
  14. Hey guys, i’m looking for weekend fishing mates. Im relatively new in Sydney. Im free most weekends. Im interested in land based and off shore. I'm happy to share cost for off shore sessions. I'm on Instagram if you need to get in touch. @serendip_pelagics Cheers,
  15. Hey guys I was out fishing at the little manly cove jetty/pier and caught a nice sized red morwong and had no other luck apart from some tiny snappers and bream. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck at this spot. Has anyone tried out metal lures for kingfish or tailor? Most people there were just catching leather jackets and bream apart from the occasional blue fish. Share your thoughts on this location.
  16. G'day raiders, been out of action for a while so finally managed to hit the stones yesterday in a long time. Wanted some aussie salmon or bonnie action. Crack of dawn, low tide, some nice discoloured washy water about but not much happening on the surface with lures except I got to see some whales and dolphins which was a sight for sore eyes. So flicked over to a tiny ball sinker and 1/0 hook and the pigs were on fire. Averaging at 30cm they certainly gave my 14lb spin gear a real workout...think the drag may be busted on it now (yep...the ONE time I leave my alvey reel at home! ). Manage
  17. I've recently decided to target some jewfish for the first time and was wondering if anyone knew any good land-based spots to go fishing for one along or near the northern beaches. Any additional tips on catching jewies would help too.
  18. Taking my boat to the Pittwater bay area tomorrow, does anybody know what fish you can catch, how to, where to and any other useful information on the area?
  19. The crew managed to get amongst the kingfish. With approximately 50 fish landed within a 3 hour session. Enjoy the footage!

  23. 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
  24. anyone know of any decent streams close by to any train stations in the blue mountains?
  25. Hi Guys, Recently new to Fish Raider but loving all the on hand information and help given by everyone! I recently decided to go for a evening fish where Balmoral Boat shed is, the wharf there has a lot of foot traffic but l just set up and had a small little section right at the top of the circular wharf there and ended up being a great little evening. I decided to set my rigs down near some boats and set up 2x Rods using lights Gear, I used pilchard on one rod and prawns on the other (6-10pm) HT of (1.62m) - 13 Degrees Surprising the pilchard was the one being smashed up by the f
