I went out Wednesday and Friday this week,
Wednesday went offshore but came back in seaway to fish the high.
Plenty of school jew, nailed 8 on Friday morning. Only 1 keeper at 78cm.
A fair bit of surface action mainly the likes of tailor and queenies.
Also landed 1 gt down deep.
Friday was quiet at the start but about from 9 till 11 sporadic surface action all over. Kingies, queenies and mackerel were the main species I saw landed.
We only got 1 tiny jew, a couple of tailor and 1 Spanish.
Very surprised to land a Spanish from the northwall. Only about 4kg but we lost a much bigger one not long after that. Saw another 2 landed. The guy in a small tinnie next to me landed one about 15kg (HUGE), and this was all from the northwall. It ran straight into our lines but after that was sorted, we enjoyed watching him battle it out with his stella 20000.
Saw 2 kingies landed by others as well. Crazy to see the Spanish randomly firing out the water.
Yakkas did the damage.
Hey fellas, heard about Fri’s action Kane good you were in the thick of it, would have been awesome. I only tried the seaway once over Easter for a low tide north wall yakka session. Hooked what felt like a good jew but dropped him. Then a few more takes but bitten off between the top and bottom hook. Sounds like theres plenty happening! Gordo
I went out thur night and when that storm came in from the west Fri morn i headed for home…and by the looks missed out on all the action. On another forum a few guys also mentioned about the action on fri morning…
The last few times ive been up the seaway of a night ive been getting bitten off, but not like you would think half way thru a fight with a tailor. A good bite and gone!!!sharks maybe?
I think sharks cause happened to me while chasing jew down deep a few weeks back and i was able to land one. Bull shark.
Went out Monday morning as well as this morning.
Monday my bro and i caught and released a 3m plus black marlin just in front of seaway close to the 18s. Took 1.5hrs on 30lb braid and 60lb leader. Crazy morning. Scored 2x 8kg Spanish after that. All caught on live tailor.
This morning on the 18s east of seaway landed 1 spotty, 2 Spanish 6kg and 10kg. All on yakkas
Hey Wayno, Monday was drifting the tailor out with no float. they were getting smashed mid water.
However Tuesday had to sink the yakkas deep.
Yea I was the same over easter Gordo, couple of spotties here and there, plenty of school jew in seaway though.
Hopefully the big Spanish will hang around in good numbers till late June.
Also might have footage of marlin fight thanks to another fisherman and his go pro.
Thats my fishing for about a month due to overseas trip.
Good luck fellas.
