Hi folks,

I am just returning to fishing again after a long long lay up and have been wondering if fishing the beach's of south Cronulla to Green Hills is still producing good catches?

I mainly fished these beaches in the winter and as it is this time now am very interested. Any info would be welcome.

Hi folks,

Fished south Cronulla beach last night and there were some little Whiting around (not legal size), but the night was wrecked by a large number of Catfish/Cobbler, who were taking every bait offered. Then they went nuts trying to get us with the spines!

I still would like to know where you folks are getting fish now a days? I dont want to know your secret spots, but a beach name would be good.

I am thinking of trying between south Cronulla and "the wall" at northies tonight. Anyone fished there recently?

Any help would be accepted willingly.

Wahcat,

Hi. I used to fish cronulla beach about 3 times a week. I used to just take my bream rod and fish close in (less than 10 metres) There's often a small channell right in front of the wall there when the tide is up. I just fished with prawns and always got bream and small flathead. The bream were usually about legal size with a couple of nice large sea bream every now and then. I don't eat fish, I just wanted to catch some so this kept me entertained.

Most other fisho's I saw were casting clear over the fish. I was spooled up with 6pd braid 10pd leader. This was extra good because when I saw blokes get a tailor or salmon I'd put a small slice on the braid and I could still cast it a long way and get in on the action.

There is always a spot somewhere along that beach that has fish in it. If you can read the water then you'll always find the fish. Don't ever think its too shallow.

good luck.. dicko..

Dicko,

I am planning on fishing "the wall" and up to Wanda over the weekend in the early mornings and late afternoon/early night.

I will let you know how I get on. I used to use blood worms or tube worms off the beach, but will give the prawns a go. I also only fish a short cast out as this is where most of the dinner table fish are.

Good fishing.
