Fishing spots at georges river
Here is a list of some of the better landbased fishing spots throughout Sydney for which I have been to and a brief run-down on each of the places. I will be adding some more details soon, maps, images etc. One of my favourite places to fish. A lot of people go there just to catch baitfish yellowtail and pilchards to use as bait elsewhere.
There are also plenty of bream, tailor, flathead, leather jackets and I have even seen the odd school of salmon. A secluded and small place, but with plenty of big fish on offer. Fresh is always best, with live and fresh bait working wonders. I have witnessed some big bream, whiting fishing spots at georges river flathead caught here.
It is a very popular spot to fish so you have to be early to get yourself a spot! There is also a rock pool, toilets and parking nearby.
One of my preferred rigs here is the paternoster, as it tends to not get as many snags as a ball sinker down to a swivel and a long leader.
Arguably the best place in Sydney to catch the elusive jewfish. I have witnessed near 10 caught there over a span of about a year. Remember to go after 9pm time of last fishing spots at georges river as it is quite a hassle with the boats coming in.
Live yellowtail which can be caught there and fresh squid are best as bait, but remember to use a 12ft rod and matching reel and at least 30lb line. There are some nice sized bream there as well.Georges River Fishing #3
A big wharf with lots of open area and bright lights. Same deal as Gladesville, best to go after the last ferry. Lots of space for casting. Have not caught much there myself but I have seen some nice bream caught there and some squid due to the lights. Very popular place for fishing which is always busy on the weekends. Unfortunately I have not caught much there myself and quite a few snags sea fishing grinner knot vs uni due to the rocks underneath.
Some fishing spots at georges river and tailor there. Another popular place to fish, with it being labelled a place for jewfish. Seems like they stick near the pylons though fishing spots at georges river fishing in bridlington yorkshire I have only seen the one caught from the boat let off.
Quite a good place to take the family with picnic areas and a small sandy beach area on low tide. There are lots of bream, mainly small ones, and the occasional flathead. Watch out for fishing spots at georges river speedboats and jetskis that constantly go through that area!
Nice place to fish where the waves are not too heavy, hence not as busy either. Caught a few nice sized snapper there before but have only been there a handful of times. Make sure you have beach gear, ie. Just down General Holmes Dr past Kyeemagh, there is a man-made rock cape st martin surf fishing that goes out right at the start of Cooks River.
Bit of a mixed bag. Seems like a very popular place to fish, but have not seen or caught anything too significant. Although I did see some guy who bagged about 15 legal tailor in the space of about half an hour.
Not the most comfortable place to fish as you have to balance off rocks and I have seen the odd rat trout fishing spinning rod length around through the rocks, although there is a place to park nearby. More of a place to take your girlfriend rather than to go fish, but seems a very popular place for fishers. Though I did see once towards fishing spots at georges river middle of the loop ewan mcgregor fly fishing graham norton past the fort where the water comes troublesome creek ky fishing guide, a big school of pilchards that were being attacked by salmon, and a guy was casting a chrome lure in and brought up two in a matter of minutes.
Great view for fishing, right next to the Harbour Bridge. Quite a good place to catch yellowtail and squid. I have even heard of the occasional jewfish there, but have hot tuna fishing crew neck tried myself. Would not be surprised judging by the size of the yellowtail there, a lot larger than average.
Again with the wharves, best to go after the last ferry. A beautiful place down Mosman way where Chowder Bay is. Huge parkland and a massive jetty which surrounds a public pool. As you could imagine, a really popular place, so the weekends should be busy. Try parking up on the streets and walk down if you intend to stay the day. The water is quite deep there so a large variety of fish including trevally, bream, yellowtail, kingfish and even garfish.
Great place to take the family for a picnic as well! Lilli Pilli A secluded and small place, but with plenty of big fish on offer. Cabarita Wharf A big wharf with lots of open area and bright lights. Georges River National Park Quite a good place to take the family with picnic areas and a small sandy beach area on low tide.
La Perouse More of a place to take your girlfriend rather than to go fish, but seems a very popular place for fishers.
