well said stewy

we can't give you advice unless you asked what type of fishing you gonna do

what type of tackle do you have?

there's great rock fishing at mona vale, whale beach and any headlands around there

however, if you are not experienced with rock fishing you better go with a local as rock fishing is very dangerous, even for experienced anglers

i normally catch drummer, trevally and breams at mona vale and whale beach

i use a 12 ft rod matched with a round baitcaster with min 20 lbs mono. i normally use a float and my best bait is ab gut although peeled king prawns will do the job

i've been catching plenty of salmon at Burning Palm (Royal National PArk) with pilchard on gang hooks

plenty of options out there

thanks swordfisherman

also im very interested in catching a hairtail i know they are most active at night an i know they loved fresh fish flesh, pillies and squid and i have been told that they feed from the top of the water so casting out whole baits without sinkers is a goodway of getting them

But what time of the year are they most active in the esturies such as bobbinhead, and cottage point ???

i have found some good spot for squid and also mullet so fresh bait shouldnt be too much of a problem i think lol

and thanks again for the reply guys its realy helping me out
