Got to the seaway around 5:30am, tide was ripping on its way out, the low tide was around 9:30 so we were hoping for early surface action on sunrise even though it was absolutely freezing haha!!
The water was very clear and it didnt look like much bait was around either.
We headed up to the north wall and drifted along the face from about 3/4 up the wall to about 50m past it with a few hits (tail grabs) on the 7 inch gulps with no success , then I changed to a large grassminnow 119 colour for a run around the flats side of the north wall on south straddie but lost it on 12lb leader (my guesses a tailor).
After that two spear fisherman rocked up with ropes attached to them about 15m long to their surf ski's so they made the tip of the north wall unfishable. About 2 mins later one of them had a kingie that would have gone a metre long easily, was a bit gutted after that so went to the pipe and threw metals for no success.
Then came back to the north wall to find 5 spear fisherman, the guy with the kingie still out with a bag of trevs and something big and red in it as well dunno what it was tho looked very reefy tho but we ended up calling it a day around 9am.
Wasnt expecting much as it was freezing with bad tides but better to be out there than sitting at home I guess!!!

At least you got out there Nick,the spear fisherman can be a pain but unfortunately they are allowed along the north and eastern side of the wall. Better off going somewhere else when they turn up.
