Fishing seaway from 5.30, there was no bait at the surface so we dropped some plastics down to the bottom at the tip of the north wall. Before long a school jewy was boated and a few other touches, but no hookups. There was really small bait on the surf side of north wall with something busting up on them. Not too sure because none were landed. The bait was really little and the fish were picky, best bet is salmon because we saw some salmon nearby in the chop of the north wall. We then resorted back to dropping down around the north wall and a few more touches but nothing convincing. We were about 10m from the wall and there was little bust up, maybe chopper tailor or something so i flicked my plastic at it and it sunk down and I saw a huge whitish yellow flash as the line started peeling off the reel straight back towards the bottom. After 15mins on bream gear and drifting right down to the center of the seaway, we borrowed another boats landing net and boated the metre yellowtail. Excellent morning!
Those Kingies know how to play hard ball, especially in the seaway…and on bream gear….well….that’s either straight luck or very very good fishing. Then again we make our own luck, so either way mate…you nailed it ! Well done Buddy.

Hi Howard, We did get a salmon on the north wall flats on Wednesday so salmon are a definite possibility for that area. Well done on the Kingfish, its a fantastic fish. Getting one in the boat in 15mins on light gear is a good effort too.
