Welcome to 2012, Seaway Quick Report Wednesday 4th January
Well as it does every year at summertime the seaway has claimed yet another boat, see the pic below for the latest victim. Not sure about the story with this one, but I'll try and find out what happened.
Anyway went for a fish on wednesday, knew it would be busy with lots of boats and it didn't disappoint in that regard, plenty of boats in the seaway, broadwater and offshore. Fishing wise, plenty of 35-45cm Bigeyes around the north wall just on dawn on slugs and minnows. Dad hooked a monster tailor on a chartreuse vision 110 that went berko the instant he was hooked and spent most of the time out of the water with multiple jumps and managed to get his teeth on the trace and cut him off. The spearfishos turned up at around 5.30am and that was that. Moved offshore and caught a 65cm striped tuna sinking a slug to the bottom over one of the reefs and cranking it back fast. Had a look around for any surface feeding tuna but saw none. That was it for the day off the water by 8am. Very little bait around. Water temps 25.2-25.5 degrees. Water visibility at the top of the tide was 5m+.
