Very Nice.

Over the Last Several Years HAB'S NEEDLEFISH Have Caught More "Confirmed" 30, 40, 50, and even 60 pound Striped Bass than any other Wooden Needlefish on the Market today. 2 Over 50lbs. and 1 Over 60lbs. in 2005 alone........... "HOOK UP WITH HAB'S" Your Best Bet For BIG BASS.....

Great stuff. I love the lush vegetation around the area. I'd hate to break down out there. I can see the vultures circling now. P.

Bigfish
Yes we do throw lures, we mainly use bibbed lures of various sizes from 4 inches to 8 inches long. We dont use these off the high cliffs only the lower cliffs that are 8 yards or so above the water.

Here a picture looking down to the water, about 90 yards down


Any someone mentioned not to lean over the edge!!!


Talk again soon

Marshcappa..
The harness is home made, what do you think we are? A bunch of wowsers or something! We are not paying for a harness when a cleverly made piece of rope is just dandy.
Heres a close up of the rope tied off to my car. Note the Number plate.."STAX"



Soon.

These a picture of the "ALVEY" sidecast fishing reel we use off the cliffs. It has a line capacity of 1000 yards of mono 30lb line. If you loose a 100 yards it makes no difference at all. They are not to shabby at casting as well. It has a 1:1 retrive and is strong as an Ox.



Justplugit.
Here is a web shot of the type of lures we use, this is only one of the brands, there are hundreds of brands, hundreds of sizes and colours, some cheap ($5-$6) and the Repala's are $15-$20.


Here is Kerren with a "small" black tip reef shark. Notice the black abyss behind him!


This is a shot of Steep Point from the air. You can clearly see the faultline that seperates the bay from the darker water. We fish from the Ovens where the water is about 80 feet deep at your feet.
The schools of fish (Narrowbanded and Yellowfin Tuna) swim down the coast, from the left of this picture, in the deep water. As they approach the faultline they swin across the bay and end up at Steep Point. This large deep bay is also one of the major spots were the baitfish get caught and herded to. Once there the large, sometimes schools of Tuna, literally make the whole bay boil. You could cast your cellphone out there and catch a Tuna!


So, what do you think of our hidden treasure?

Stax, that is way cool stuff my man, way cool. So bibbed means lipped, I guess I learned some Australian today. Neat!

That Saamson fish was neat, looked like it would fight hard and probably take a surface plug. Also that Mulloway looks like a white sea bass as found off of our west coast and down Baja. Sea trout (actually the croaker family of fishes) like our Squeteaque and Spotted Weakish, in that family. You guys get Tailor down there which we know as Bluefish correct?

Got to be a bitch getting those critters up that cliff. Not much for a live release. The Alveys really cast when you can adjust the spool to face forward. Guys use them out west for salmon.

Well, welcome aboard, that really cool stuff and looks like lonely country out that way. Drop a cold one for us mate!

Why even try.........

Here is a picture of a Tailor caught with my very first cast with the new BG10000 and my ABU Suflex rod, the rod is 25 years old.

You mentioned the word "crocker" and yes the Mulloway is in that family. They get up to about 90Lbs. Not the greatest fighting fish and an even worst eating fish. Like eating cardboard boxes!!



Is one is taken from the beach about 5 miles from Steep Point at Sheltered Bay. Fishing extra light takle, 4lb line, for bait. John here has a Tailor about 8lb trying to make a dash for freedom.

Soon

Stax, i read where peak time for catching those Tailors (bluefish) is January and February.
We have a guy on our site who loves to catch them and would

probably fly over to catch them in our off season.You may not of

heard of "Clammer" yet, but you will.
