A combined report this time because both days yielded few fish due to dirty water runoff. I thought the jewies would be active but despite a bit of plastic work on the bottom, didn't even manage a hit down there.
Tuesday 5th October
Tons of Cornflake weed around the north wall, dirty water runoff, visibility ranging from 10cm to 1m at the top of the tide. Large dangerous swell.
Fished everywhere in the seaway with most techniques but the high level of weed and dirty water made it difficult, wasn't until the top of the tide when I managed 2 tailor and 1 bigeye trevally, usual small size fish. All fish caught around the eastern most point of the north wall.
Thursday 7th October
Cornflake weed still around the north wall but starting to thin out, dirty water runoff, visibility ranging from 50cm to 1m at the top of the tide.
Pretty much a carbon copy of Tuesdays effort, no fish until the top of the tide with 2 tailor and 1 bigeye landed, a couple of other fish lost. Looked offshore for pelagics, found some decent (3-4kg) tuna at around the 80ft mark east of the seaway but too flighty to get a cast into. Looked from the seaway south to mermaid reef but saw no others.
