Seaway Report Tuesday 3rd April 2012
Went fishing Tuesday morning, the wind dropped off nicely at midnight and stayed down all morning. The swell was quite big though around 2-2.5m. We fished for tarpon at first and had lots of hits and nudges but only one hookup which instantly jumped off... Frustrating but thats Tarpon fishing for you. I did get a 60cm jewie on a grass minnow but that was all.
Come dawn we had a look around wavebreak saw a big school of (i think)GT's come up for about 20 seconds, managed a couple of hits on poppers, but they didnt return. Fished herring around the north wall for 1 bigeye, 1 jewie, 1 moses perch and about 10 bream. Cast a grass minnow around the wash and managed a GT around 40cm. Headed offshore and found schools of small mack tuna and frigates all around 40-50cm. Caught about a dozen of those before they disappeared. Coming back in during the runout tide was fun...
Nothing too exciting in that trip but at least we managed a few fish.
