    If you hit a school of tailor, catching them is as easy as hitting the water when you piss in the toilet :0

    but good on you. I do a fair bit of fishing up here, but I tend to enjoy the adventure more than the fishing. I hunt down different places and trek through the bush and mangroves to find an untouched spot (just keep an eye out for snakes, and get ready to be hit by midges)

    Been really getting into using soft plastics of late and have caught a nice load of Flathead on them. It's a new technique for me but I really enjoy it, especially when I wade waist deep through the sand flats

    dan mate im hooked on it again.. yeah true what you say  about the taylor when they are on but i came at the last  hour when the tide was running out..  my success was that i walked the bank..  i didnt just stnd there i knew the tide was flowing out fast so i walked with me line along the bank  ,, thats why i cleaned up, my bait looked more natural flowing in the current..

    yeah i  like the mangroves growing on the edges of the banks.. we too have a place just like how you described  ,,  we get flaties  & also bream with the plastics.. last time i fished like that i was actually using an imitation prawn lure..  the flathead went mad over it..

    dan i suppose you dont get to do much beach fishing where your at?  whiting are coming on here soon off the beaches.. when there on they are just like the tailor , theres that many of them schooled up along the gutter `s ,  you could catch them with a handline off the beach lol..

    NICE  clon i was going to ask dan if he had been live baiting ever..  down  here we have a spot at jervis bay  its called the toobs best land based game fishing place ever.. actually all that area is  good for live baiting, currawong & beaucroft penninsula  ..

    my best fish is a 15kg  kingie on a slimey mackeral..  i have caught bonito  & salmon  . but never the elusive yellow fin, blue fin or tuna mack..

    I prefer to do my fishing on here, can quite often land a few with just the one bit of bait

    Kiwis are generally more familiar with Aus than NZ arent they? Especially the Centrelink offices.....

    JJAI,

    I have fished with live bait etc and beach fishing. I lived in Sydney most of my life and have caught some nice fish off of North Curl Curl beach, Dew Fish, massive Flathead etc, you need to catch the right tides and the right time after the creek runs out though, but a lot big fish come into the protective cove there at North Curl Curl.

    As for live baiting of course mate. A lot of it off the Jetty at Broome to get barra and all sorts of things.

    We usually throw live baits out here but half the time, friggin Eagles swoop and grab them if they are near the surface.

    As for whiting, the winter whiting were good this year, but we had a crap load of pike in the water up here, so it was hard to get through them to get anything decent close into shore on a boat. Though lots of people had good success on the banks off toogoom.

    I primarily fish for fun and catch and release 99% of everything i catch

    At least you spelt that right, although a capital T is correct.

    Throw has a unique way of fishing.  Great to watch though.
