BREAM (4/19)



  1. Peeps, Been heading off Terrigal in search of a few flatties. Fished in the 40m mark east of Terrigal however couldn’t find a patch. Fishing a running rig with half pilles. Looking for a hand finding some consistent flatly grounds off Terrigal any tips re depths, rigs and bait would be helpful.
  2. Hey crusher current was steady running up hill wasn’t too bad at all, wasn’t raging but enough to cover some good ground!
  3. Whole body was hurting today, but that was ok because still on a high from a cracking fishing trip. Can wait to get back out there and get stuck into another King.
  4. Fun2fish it’s about 26 nautical miles (50km ish) from the mouth of the Hawkesbury best to launch from Terrigal if you can.
  5. Sitting at my desk all week watching Willy weather, psyched myself up for a trip out wide for the weekend. Had to fish solo today, the old man wasn’t keen. launched at terrigal and filled up on livies. Sea was 21.3 degrees, water was clean and seas were gentle made a quick Punch out to Texas (The cones if your speaking with a local). Not long before it was a car park. Fish were spread out no big schools or markA few people had some luck but they weren’t thick by any measure. Did some exploring to the south and found a nice rock in the middle of nowhere with a good show. They were not interest in the livies. My yellow and green jig was left untouched. Switched to a red and blue jig and the action started. Got my 5 pretty quick biggest went 90cm. Stoked when I got the fifth, my arms were gassed The run in was quick, nearly flat stick. The oldies, in-laws and my house hold will smash up the fillets in no time! Stoked I found a new mark, now back to dreaming about my next trip.
  6. Hey guys, got a Shimano Tekota 700 spoiled with 15kg mono looking to make it my trolling / part time live baiting set up. Looking for a rod recommendation. i considered the terez but the lighted terez over head is 40 - 100 pound, I’m worried it may be to stiff and ruin the lure action. i then considered a Shimano tcurve over head either the 200 or 400 but again worried it’s a Jigging rod and may not be good for trolling. ill be fishing for kings / dollies looking for recommendations for rods for Tekota 700 spoiled with 15kg mono for trolling / live baiting
  7. Good luck squid let us know how you go! Cheers for the intel Tyrone, if I’m heading wide I generally make a day of checking out those couple southern peaks before heading out to Texas, in summer checking out the nearby fad on the way! The hope is the fish will be at one of those three spot!
  8. Hey squid! Works got me tied down for a couple of weeks but certainly keen to team up! Not sure which mark you refer to as ‘the farm’ perhaps I know the same spot as a different name? Perhaps pm the spot? Always keen to team up, not to long before the kings come back in hopefully we can get on them this summer!!!
  9. Hey squid! Since that post I’ve had some cracker days and days with a big duck egg. In no way have I figured things out yet but good days seems to start with sounding out the spot and finding a show on the sounder. It key to be fishing off the reefs and drop offs in the area whilst also finding some bait or schools of fish in the immediacy area. understanding the seasons and what fish are around is a big one too for example in summer the Pelagics smash up the area and if you don’t find them move around till you do find them. Also live bait is the key. Whilst in winter the structure and gravel bottoms near reefs and drop offs have found me good reds. That also speaks for the way you fish, ie live baits in winter in those areas are pointless in my opinion whilst in summer it’s a must. I have been trying to go to areas I haven’t been and just sound out the area for a bit, I have found two good honey holes this way. In summary a whole bunch of trial and mostly error is starting to pay off for me. The sounder is the key. Always keen to share info and team up!!!
  10. Was in two minds of going wide chasing kings or staying in close and going for reds. Local intel was that the current was running strong out wide and the fish were hard to find and in small numbers. I also knew I had till late morning as the wind was picking up to 20 knots. The chase of a big king was too great so tried to raise yakkas and but couldn’t find them in my usual spots. I took it as a omen and fished in close. I stayed in close and targeted Reds. However with no live or fresh bait I was fishing with pillies. On the travel, passed a couple pods of dolphins and dodged a whale that breached close enough for me to clinch the cheeks. Tried a new spot in 35m mark, spent some time sounding out the area and found a drop off into gravel/rock. I was burleying hard and few small reds came up and went back, you beauty I’m in the game. Trying a range of depths the deeper baits snagged a few duskies, the biggest of the day was 54cm. Was stoked with that as now I had a feed for dinner. I was perhaps burleying to hard cause next fish was 3 port Jackson’s and 3 banjo sharks, they all went back. Bloody hell the arms got sore. Wind was picking up and on packing up the boat snagged a blue mowie and another dusky. Was a lumpy ride in and took me two passes to get the boat on the trailer in blowy conditions. top way to start the long weekend, and a feed of fish for the table. Just what I needed was a day on the water.
  11. Great report, good that you went home with a feed. I also have not had great success at West reef! The best I have done there is after doing some heavy sounder work prior to anchoring up finding structure and what appeared to be a school of fish, even after that it was nothing special. I wonder if anyone has had a good session at west reef or have some tips for it?
  12. Nice one mate! Do you chuck the mullet in whole or cut/cube them up when using them for crab baits? I’ve been cutting them to try get more sent through the water but not sure if it’s needed!?
  13. Cheers guys will be crabbing in Tuggerah lakes, I believe they are legal in there except a exclusion around the entrance. Cheers for the clarification! @kingie chaseryes mate similar names! I sometimes get tagged in posts meant for you!!
  14. Gday guys. just checking a crabbing law in NSW. Crab dillies as seen in the image below. Are these classed as ‘Witches hats’ or ‘crab traps’, ie can I fish with two or four at a time per person.? and in addition if they are classed as witches hats as I suspect. Can I fish with 4 of them in addition to two crab traps in the water as well, per person in the boat? Then if there are two people in the boat can we fish with 8 dillies and 4 traps? Cheers
