Seaway and Broadwater Report Wednesday 25th July 2012
Managed to get out for a quick fish on wednesday between 9am and 12pm, spent most of the time searching for salmon to no avail though I did see one other boat get a small one. Dad picked up a flathead while we were working the shallows with flickbaits, I hooked something good but the hooks pulled 30 seconds into the fight. Found plenty of small mack tuna in the seaway near the pipeline, a bit fussy at first but as we got closer to the top of the tide they started hitting everything. Dad also got a 63cm GT casting into a school of feeding tuna which was a nice surprise, especially at about 11.30am. Plenty of bait around in all the usual places but not much action overall. Swell is still huge and slamming the walls hard, too rough to fish them effectively. Water clarity is excellent from an hour after the start of the run in. Water temps 18-20 degrees.
