Seaway Report Wednesday 17th November 2011
Into the seaway at 3.30am, it was the bottom of the runout tide and there was no wind at all for change. Started off throwing a few plastics around, picked up 3 small jewies(40-50cm) in quick succession just on first light on 1/2oz 3" pearl chart gulp minnows. Moved a bit and found some tailor feeding on the surface, got a dozen or so on poppers(skitter pop 9's) all 35-45cm plus dad got a 60cm salmon on a popper as well.
Had a look offshore for tuna while we waited for the tide to start running in but saw none, pulled some small tailor and bonito off one of the inshore reefs.
Back to the seaway for the run in tide, we got a few more tailor on vision 110's and missed a couple of others including one big one that took a saltiga pencil, best fish landed went around 50cm. Had a couple of big fish shadow the tango dancer I was using but wouldn't hit it.
Moved into the broadwater and had a look at the bait situation, slightly more than last time but still no big schools. Got a couple of flatties and a bream on plastics.
Water temps 22.5-24.5 degrees. Water visibilty was good between 2 and 5 metres. Nice blue water just offshore, mackerel should show up soon.
