How to get John Dory


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone can share some tips and spots to target John Dory in Sydney Harbour. I am yet to catch one of these fish.

I usually drop in at Roseville or Little Manly and have a tinny so can travel.

Any tips welcome.

Your best bet is to catch a few yakkas. They are by far the best bait for dory. Also, trim their tails to make them easier for the dory to catch. Places like Balmoral, Spit and sailors bay are good starting points. Fish them either unweighted or under a float around the moorings. The by-catch is salmon and tailor at this time of year.

Cheers, Tom
