I've done ok off Narrabeen beach, around wetheral st. Salmon, Flatties, and i've seen big Jews caught there. (I'm yet to land one yet, tho have been busted off :mad3: )

Usually before dusk and the next 2-3 hours after, on a rising tide, but not been ther for a few weeks.

Ganged pillies or slabs of slimy mackeral seem to work.

Good luck, and persavere.

Perserverance is the key to success, as clearly noted by other members.

There are heaps of good beaches and rock hopping spots all along the Northern Beaches.

Beach Spots: Dee Why, Nth Narrabeen, Mona Vale, Newport, Avalon, Whale and Palm Beach are all good for various species including Bream, Whiting, Jew, Flatties, Trevally and Dart

Baits: Whole pillies on ganged hooks (size 2/0), Slimey Mackerel slabs, yakka slabs, Mullet slabs, Mullet gut, live beach worms, live tube worms and pippies are the best baits for fishing the beaches.

Rock hopping Spots: Whale Beach (The Ovens), Bungan Head Reserve, Long Reef Headland.

baits: live yakkas, live Slimey Mackerel, live Mullet, Live squid, pillies, mullet slabs, red rock crabs, cunjevoi.

Hope this helps
