Seaway and Broadwater Report 5th August 2012
Into the seaway at 4am, went looking for Tarpon, landed 2 tailor up to 45cm and dad landed 1 tarpon at 59cm. Pretty quiet though. Swell was way down at less than half a metre. At dawn we worked the walls with minnows and picked up a few more tailor best going mid 40's. Did a long cast alongside the northern side of the north wall about a metre away from the rocks with a brand new megabass vision 111 a few twitches into the retrieve it got smashed and 5 seconds later got busted off in the rocks, unstoppables of the north wall strike again...Geez i wish they didn't have such expensive tastes.
Went back into the broadwater and had a look around, saw 1 bustup that looked like salmon but it was all over in seconds. Saw nothing else. Back in the seaway the small mackt's were on the job near the pipeline so we chased them for a while and caught half a dozen of those. Had another look around but saw nothing so called it a day around 9am. Lots of boats around, water temps between 17 and 19 degrees.
Looks like some big swell and strong winds due this coming weekend, that might change things up a bit.
