Seaway Quick Report Monday 27th June 2011
Moved into the Seaway at 12.30am, there was a small window of opportunity for Tarpon so we concentrated on looking for those. The tide was just starting to come in so we looked at a couple of spots for zip then after a few casts in a new spot hooked a leaping silver demon. Once we figured out where they were holding it was action a plenty with 15 fish hooked and 9 landed from 55cm to 62cm, the usual Ecogear Grass minnow M on 3/8oz 3/0H jigheads. 90 minutes later they went off the bite, right on cue. We moved around a bit and pulled a few small bigeyes but nothing else.
We moved offshore to try and get some livies but that proved to be very difficult while it was dark, and we only managed a few yellowtail just on dawn. Back at the seaway we livebaited for a while for nothing.. not even a mauled bait. We had to leave early today and was back at the ramp by 8am.
Lots of white pilchards holding near the anchored barges and in the seaworld deep hole today, birds everywhere but no fish into the bait.
