Landbased In Port Hacking


Recommended Posts

HI all

Just wondered if someone could post a 'guide to landbased fishing' in Port hacking for the newbies among us, incluyding me.

I live on the Georges and am having no luck at all, so thinking of a change.



A lot of guys have settled with the whole idea and notion of every bait and rig works best for each person, there is no 'perfect' way of going about things. Firstly I'd say check which fish your aiming for then start going from there, which bait and what set up..etc

For me I go for bream and I'm mostly using chicken, they love the stuff, they attack it like there's no tomorrow sometimes. Just depends on your day aswell. Like me I used to do the Georges River but not much luck so I decided to try the hacking once, wasn't bad, very nice and clean waterway though in my opinion.


That might help ya out for some of the rigs depending on the fish you want.

The guide is basically choose a fish or two that your after, then choose the bait they like and go for that a bit. Bream - prawns, chicken or anything else that might go...Flathead - prawns, pilchards..etc.

Like i said though, each person has their own methods in the end. Some people have their line pulled more than others, I duno if its a thing called luck, or if its an extra formula they put into it, but just go with trial and error, enjoy the nice waterways and good luck fishing :1fishing1:

There's a huge variety in the Hacking too from what I've been noticing :)
