Lots of suspended sand in the water. Lots of floating weed around the north wall.
On the water at 4.30am we proceeded to the seaway to see if we could find some fish, straight away it was evident it was going to be a tough day with the water looking very dirty with alot of suspended sand and weed, visibility was down to less than a metre. We persevered anyway and Dad landed a 40cm tailor on a Skitter pop. We pulled another small bigeye and one small tailor and had a few other hits that didn't connect but the dirty water was having an effect. We headed offshore to have a look around and stopped at the Scottish prince for one small tailor and also had a look at the narrowneck arti but it was all very quiet. No sign of any pelagics. We headed back to the seaway and jigged plastics for a while and dad landed a 60cm jew on a 7'' Gulp but that was it. Just goes to show how quickly the seaway can go from awesome fishing to average.
