Shore-based options to land the fish
Craig Mcgill | December 2016

The season has kicked off well despite big swells and dodgy currents. The salmon run has been huge, with fish massing around North Head and sometimes up the main harbour around Bradleys Head.

There’s more fish at North Head, but they’re much harder to catch and focused on small bait.

Specify a type.

A bunch of reasons to fish off the rocks
Alex Bellissimo | November 2016

Anything can happen in November. There are end of season trevally, which can often be whoppers, and the big pigs can be on as well. A run of sizable to big kings are on the cards, and off the beaches it’s not uncommon to get a large mulloway in November. There are stud whiting, stud bream and quality flathead, not to mention the salmon!

Double check before you take off for a fish
Gary Brown | November 2016

As the weather warms up, many anglers will think about going for a fish. Some anglers will grab their rod and reel outfits, put them into vehicles and grab a bit of bait. They take off to go fishing, and realise once that they’re there, the reel doesn’t work properly or the rod is missing a guide or maybe the line is has started to perish.
