Fishing Pittwater Saturday. The morning was still so I went after bream as it was high tide . Two nice bream in two hours plus plenty of small reds to keep me entertained . I was using 1000 reel , 6 lb leader , 4 lb braid and 2 kg rod . The jig head was 1/12 oz with 2.5″ gulp shrimp in new penny colour . I decided to fish deep , 6 -7 metres as the water was dirty from the rain .
I went out in the afternoon at 4.30 just to try for a jewfish . After about an hour with nothing I hooked this small Jewie which was exciting . Then along came a school of bait fish followed by some rat kings so I threw the 5 ” soft plastic at them and hooked up a rat kingside which gave me a lot of fight . That was the day . The last two were caught on a 5″ Berkeley gulp jerk shad in pearl white , 3/0 hook and 1/4 oz jig head . I fished in 10-12 metres water amongst the moored boats .enjoy the photos . Videos to come later .
How to rig a live squid

Best way to rig a live squid is with two hooks . The one furthest up the line goes into the tip of the squid’s body . The second hook goes just lightly into the skin of the squid near the head . Both hooks must be exposed so they catch the fish easily . See the photos below . If you troll , don’t go any faster than 2 knots , otherwise the squid will die . If you drift , use the lightest lead you need to just get the squid down to the depth you want to fish . Usually two thirds of the way to the bottom is a good plan . You can leave the bottom hook free to drift with the tide if you like , but I don’t as many times the head is hit and the top is not so the bottom hook is the handy one . You can put the hook through the other , that is through the skin and out , but make sure it is exposed . This way is quick and simple and gets the squid into the water quickly . Good luck and hang on ! . Stay tuned and get fishing !

There are a few ways to fillet a flathead but I like an easy way as the fish is flat and sits flat on the table . First you cut the head off after you have scaled and gutted the fish . Now watch the video , it shows you how easy it is.
