Default Fishing at spit bridge?

Was looking up spots, heard this one provides some good fish. Probably going to use prawn as usual, but was thinking this time I might bring some pilchard and squid with me.

With squid, is there a way to hook it with one hook? Or is it better to cut it first? Is there a certain type of squid I should be aiming? And the same with pillies, are they have to be used with just one hook or must I cut them up first?

Any other bait suggestions? I keep seeing chicken with parmasen cheese, but I don't really understand how it works. Is the chicken raw? If so, how do you mix cheese with it? Does it really work that well O.o?

Thanks for all help in advance =D,

Regards, Mike

Was just researching some more. According to many people, chicken breast marinated with tuna oil works well on bream and flatty? Might have to try that too.

Isn't it fine to park on the left side of the bridge, and walk up to that little area where there's nothing but water? No I'm not fishing off the actual bridge.

Yep iy's fine. Watch it getting out of there though, it's a one-way opening to the carpark and a blind spot. Wouldn't be surprised to hear of any accidents there

You can fish either side of the Spit Bridge.
Eastern side has parking on the left as you go over the bridge.
Park and walk under bridge. there is a little grassy area with even a seat.
Heavily fished and very deep water.

Western side has a little Fenced are you can fish from or climb down to the little rocky/Beach area underneath. Have not fished that side. Watch out for boats.

Hey mate..

I have one thing to say about fishing the spit ( don't bother ) it's only tiny bream and snapper there and nothing else worth catching..your better of going to clifton gardens in mosman or go rock fishing somewhere..at least you're in for a lucky dip..and getting something worth eating..

Tite knots..

i agree..ive fished spit bridge few time (both sides) and never caught anything decent. thats why i was asking if you were planning to fish off the bridge (caz that might be a different story). cliffton garden wharf is ok..havnt been back for a while now. but it gets very crowded..so if your not into un-tangling lines and loud/idiot people around, i wouldnt recommend clifton gardens

I tend to lean towards the other guys opinion who said it pretty average there, in saying that i have only fished 6 or 7 times there and have absolutely no luck whatsoever. Don't take our opinions as rock solid rockinmofo as im sure there are people who have caught good and decent fish there, think i read somewhere CCD got a few nice flatties there same with a few other members maybe jocool???

anyhow how about we ask the question, has anybody got any good memories of the spit bridge producing??? sometimes reading all the reports of an area not doing so well turns me off going back there, but it by no account means that there aren't good fish to be caught there, you just probably haven't heard of the good ones landed that's all persistence is the key..

Dont bother with the area mate, very over rated have never seen anything decent get pulled out of there.

Dont get me wrong you will get bait fish around but they are very finicky.

Why dont you book a session with a rock hopper and pick his brain at some spots that would be safe and productive for you to fish.
