Was there on my boat when they hooked it, there had been some massive salmon bustups in that spot earlier so Im Guessing the bull sharks got attracted to it, however the news loves to blow things out of proportion, I’m sure there is a bunch of sharks hanging around beneath schools of salmon, kings and tailor all the time, we just don’t see them. So if you want to hook a shark go for the bustups and chuck a big livie under it.

I can take you out in the boat to catch bronzes easy, only about one metre long though...

bronzies are boring compared to a 3 meter bull ahaha
plenty of them about along just about every beach

With the warm water they are fairly common in the harbour. Last week the temp got to 27 degrees - and outside it was marginally over 24.

Last year I hooked several - even managed to get one to the side of the boat  (lip hooked on a Mustad Hoodlum 8/0 hook - most would have straighten, but not the hoodlums)- one hellava fight and u forgettable long runs. When I looked back on the sounder the pattern looked like something from a kindergarten kids self portrait.

Probably hunting for @GoldenHourFishing , who’s been attracting all the bulls lately !

As long as Im not on the yak again I don't mind lol. Curious to know what gear I would need to target them on the kayak though? (Bait, type of wire trace etc)

 

I don't anchor my kayak so keeping the bait in one spot for then may be tricky. Ill give it a go if anyone has some tips for me?

and the Hacking, up as far as Audley weir where people swim.

Absolutely.

I watched a show one day where they were over 100km up the Brisbane river & catching nearly 1mtr juvenile bull sharks for research.

Well into fresh water which is what they are known for!

The only shark that can survive in the fresh which makes it the most dangerous shark imo for that reason.............no one expects a shark to be there!

I saw one on my sounder a few weeks back while jewie fishing on the geroges at night and the shape did resemble a shark haha

Very very common. Especially after that Navy Diver got attached several years ago in Rose Bay. I have a mate that told me some interesting stories after this attacked and the DPI started tagging them. On their first few tagging outings, they were severly undergunned with hooks being bend, reels breaking under pressure, and line breakages.

 

I was a North Head years ago when a member of this forum had a big Bull shark grab his kingy boat side, it was a big bull as it dragged his boat off anchor for a couple hundred metres before he was bitten off.
