Help with jigging in Sydney


Recommended Posts

Hi guys I am looking to get my boat back in the water soon permitted I get my outboard up and running. Currently have a seafarer VC with a seized 85hp outboard .

Anyway, once I get back in the water I wanted start trying to learn how to jig. I usually take my boat out in botany bay as I live in the blakehurst area at the tom uglys bridge boat ramp.

Just wondering if botany bay is any worth jigging and if there's any areas that might be better than others. 

I just bought a saltist hyper X 6ft 4 rod with a Saragossa 8000 reel. 

I would like to know some of the better locations, types of lures, and fish species I might come across according to seasons.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Bit late of a reply (you get better visibility in General Chat). Jigging in botany bay can work but i reckon you need some depth so around molineaux pt is probably your best bet. The main bay towards the captain Cook bridge is just too shallow to give the jig enough distance to flutter. Most fish will go for a jig. What I like to do is have a bait soaking and whilst waiting, will jig. Best of both worlds.
