Thread: New member from Northern Sydney

  1. #1

    New member from Northern Sydney

    Gday fellas, decided to take up fishing 6 months ago and fell in love with it. Got given a rod/reel in December by a good mate and one thing lead to another by getting my first boat in April ( Renegade 420 SC). Learning more every day with the only trouble being I have difficulty thinking of work now as my thoughts are constantly filled with all things fishing.

    I think I have sea sickness

    Hoping to learn more here, meet like minded people and contribute to the community.

    I was reading your offshore review earlier and agree with what you said. Thanks for the tip on the seabreeze app

    I have great memories of pulling salmon and kingies from under working birds in the Harbour. All on light spin gear. Poor manís marlin. And for some serious fun grab some live squid and drop them round the buoys. Not on light gear though.

    Kings sound like they have been good this year, yet to try my hand at them. I am running ultra light gear for the most part so expect one would hand me my ass.

    Interesting, will take a look although there is not much to be done to mine, I got it decked out with minn kota, etec 40hp, bimini, lowrance elite ti, side console, under floor tank, lights etc... I wanted a turn key setup so it was less time in the garage and more time on the water.

    Got out for 5 hours today to try some new lures, perfect weather for it. No hookups though as I was messing around out near Lion island. Swell was around 1.5 to 2M today so not the best conditions out there for the little old renegade. I am still very new to this boating and fishing thing so learning lots each and every week. Felt good to be out in the sun that is for certain!

    You will get squid along the rock shore of Barrenjoey, West Head and Flint &Steel. Rig them live and fish them in those same spots. There is also a good E/W gutter on the north side of Lion. We have pulled good Jew in all those spots on either live squid, fresh caught cut squid or live yakkas.

    Hi Chris , I live in Brooklyn so have been fishing the river locally while I get used to it. Been targeting bread and butter stuff using SP's with a reasonable degree of success.

    I'm surprised that you don't chase Jewies ...... It's a great river system for them

    lol. Let him ease into this addiction mate. To go from not fishing to the down and dirty full time drug addiction that is Jewie fishing in the first year could break a bloke!

    Tip Steve: all the gun Jewie fishoís are out in the cold when no one else will brave it. But they do get some monsters.
