  1. 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
  2. I hit my nearest sandy beach before dawn this morning. Swell was up a bit, just coming up to the top of the tide. There was a bit of a shore dump and I was not sure where the gutters were, if any. I had a few casts with two Berkely sandworms (50mm) on a paternoster, but got no bites. This is the first time I have tried this approach after reading that some people consider these plastics a fair substitute for live worms. Once there was enough light, I moved down the beach a bit and switched to a Halco Twisty 30g in gold. 3rd cast got a nice tailor. After a few more casts I lost the lure, i
  3. I had a productive session on the water this afternoon. Fishing from my rowing skiff as well as a bit of wading, I went looking for some bream and flathead with a fat crankbait and a soft plastic grub. Despite covering a fairly wide area of sea-grass, sand flats and channel, I got nothing. As the light faded, something was stirring up the baitfish on the surface. While rowing up the creek in the direction of the disturbance, the first tailor hit the grub I had trailing in the water. This was a bit of unintentional trolling, 1 metre from the boat. This one spat the hook after a brief fight
  4. Been fishing hard these couple of months been trying to chase jewies but still no luck landbased. However few days ago did manage to hook up to what I believe was a big kingy I would say easy 80cm plus on my bg6500 . Was fighting for a good few 15 to 20 minutes, so close to landing but ended up cutting me off by the pylons. Did manage to catch a few other kingies though one 65 and one 74cm. Other night caught a few big breams one being 41cm my pb and 38cm tailor. Also caught random eel and blue swimmer by catch.
  5. 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
  6. Fished Wanda beach last weekends two days in a row in the late evening to early night session. Saturday saw the beach really packed owing to the good weather. I started about 6pm and persisted till 9:30 wanting to finish off all the 12 pilchards I took for the session. All up I caught 15 fish, with the largest fish a nice flathead, the second last fish I caught. Knowing I need to go to work today, I planned only a short session yesterday, taking 6 baits with me. Got there about 7pm and left when it got dark, fished for about 1.5 hours. The bite was not consistent as on Saturday, only
  7. Left the ramp at 6:20 for a quick little flick just to get used to the boat... and we did that! We headed straight for dads secret spot that's hes caught 20+kg jew out of and as soon as we got there we dropped the anchor. First cast and my brother was on to a little tailor and then I hooked up to the biggest tailor of the day! Jeez those tailor fight hard.... Anyways, we had frozen pillies and we put them in a bucket full of water so that they could soak up! The bite shut down after that but it wasnt the end. The very next cast, my brother hooks up to a little undersized red and then
  8. Went for a troll on kayak, starting 6.30am today at La Perouse. Had two lures – Slashbait 10 in olive green, and slashbait 12 in glass ghost. Tide was in second half of rise with very light NW breeze. Had a quick first hook up going around Yarra Point, but it got off. There were about 10 people standing on Yarra Point and one of them asked if I could please move around the corner to wind the fish in, which I thought a little odd, given they weren’t actually fishing. Turns out they were taking photos of a model to make an advertisement or something. Second hookup was closer to the seawall
  9. Hi all, first post and just thought I'd share my bonus evening with you all. It was the first clear evening after the storms and decided to try and break my recent drought of decent fish having only caught the odd flattie and squid when targeting them. I went to the Yarra Bay groyne out in front of the sailing club at about 4.30pm. It was the slack tide, and about to start coming in. There was barely a wave in sight - as flat as a millpond, which was a welcome sight after the recent crappy weather. Rigged up and had my first cast at about 4.45 just as the sun was setting behind the clouds
  10. Tailor caught in middle harbour, Exactly 50cm
  11. There are a few gutters at the northern end of Wanda beach that are good for fishing at low tide. The only thing is you need to arrive a bit late at somewhere after 10 am so that you won’t be harassed by the hundreds of dogs enjoying the free run. (Leash free time). This weekend, I made a mid day trip each on Saturday and Sunday. About 3 hours fishing each day finishing about 2pm, just before high tide. Generally fishing is good when water is low and gets slower when water is higher. All up for the two trips, I caught 5 good Flathead (ranging 40-50cm), 7 tailor, 1 bream of 3
  12. Hi everyone, Next weekend i'll be down in the central coast with the wife, all day Sunday and she'll be working, so I'll have the day spare to go... fishing! I don't really know the area, and I'll be around the entrance area, and land based. I'm guessing they'll maybe be blackfish, salmon, tailor, bream? Any tips? Judging from google maps there's toowoon point etc, or the rockwall west of the bridge... but i'm really just guessing. Thanks!
  13. Hi raiders was hoping some could help or point me in the right direction.

  14. Looking to target some tailor off the beaches with Gang hooks, just wondering if anyone here makes up their own and links them with swivels? if so what hooks e.g. (Gamakatsu Gangsters, Mustad 4202d etc) and swivel brand/size do you use? i feel like it might be a bit of trial an error getting the right hook and swivel combination.
  15. G,day all im looking for some good fishing spots in middle harbour im targetting mainly kingfish and tailor. Im using whole pilchids
  16. Went out with two mates to do some bottom bouncing. ran into some big bait Balls busting up on way out to check out the inner reefs. I only had a big overhead combo and my little trout set up (gen back 5'6 1-2kg spotted wiggled + gen black 2000 4pd mainline) so threw on a little 10gm slug and casted it out into the boil and immediately began to be smoked. I surprisingly turned its head after a massive deep run and got some line back before being smoked again haha this went on for a while before slowly managing to wear it out, about ten minutes later had a fat 49 cm Mac tuna boat side. Th
  17. Just a short report from a few sessions. Newcastle beaches holding good numbers of fish - and bigger numbers of fisherman! If you can find a little gutter away from the headlamps & noise - you’ll find enough dart, whiting, flatty and tailor to keep you on your toes. Whiting are hitting really nicely, averaging about 40cm. Interestingly - I’ve not caught a bream in weeks, though have seen a few reds landed at Redhead & Stocko - not sure if there’s any reason or just coincidence. Yabbies / pipi / beachworm the go, I’ve been fishing 5-7 am or pm.
  18. Having recently moved to Woy Woy it’s been a while since I’ve been able to wet a line due to renovations and illness. The other weekend that was perfect conditions - I planned to go out but we all got struck down with type A influenza (anyone else got it?). Put the boat in at Blackwall Ramp. Rough around the edges Ramp but a lot easier than the surge you to have to deal with at Terrigal. It was hot- pushing 40 and I had the rig out and wasn’t the least bit cold. Bit of wind and the tides were all wrong but love the no crowd factor compared to weekends! Delayed start as I had to help a je
