No Swell. No surface feeding anywhere. Dirty green water
On the water at 3am we moved to spot 1, first cast with a megabass vision 110 I was hit hard but unfortunately the hooks pulled after about 30 seconds. Dad using a Daiwa Silver Creek hooked a nice tailor right next to the boat which gave him a good fight it went 52cm. After that it all went quiet so we moved on to spot 2. No surface activity here so we went straight to plastics, wasn't long before I hooked a small fish which turned out to be a 25cm bream. As the tide was still running out I decided to head down to the seaway and see what was around, we found some fish fairly quick and first drop with a 3" gulp smelt on 1/4oz head I hooked a good fish which turned out to be a 60cm Mulloway. By the time I had dealt with that fish the tide had begin to run-in and the fish had moved. Dawn was also upon us so we moved to the north wall, wasn't long before Dad landed a bigeye trevally of around 35cm on a Zipbaits Vib 80-25g. But that was it we looked in a number of other places but all was quiet so we gave it away. Another tough trip but a couple of reasonable fish landed so it wasn't too bad.
