Ok guys so I have now returned and am ready for some seaway action. Thanks to all of you who have posted reports in my absence, I'm sure it has been appreciated by others as well. Going by the reports it sounds like the froggies are in, and there are plenty of tailor and bigeyes around with the occasional kingie to make things interesting. I'm surprised there hasn't been much poppers use so far though, the bigger fish this time of year nearly always fall to poppers at dawn or during a run in tide. I'll be out there sometime in the next week to have a look around and see whats going on.
New registrations on the discussion board are still closed and will remain so for the time being as I'm still dealing with some other stuff, if you are really keen you can message me at the following link with your seawayfishing user id and I'll manually add you.
I found a couple of new lures on my trip that should go well in the seaway, the first is the Bolt Omega, a 10cm trolling lure that dives to around 4.5 metres and consistently outfished the rapala XRD10, should be a good lure for trolling around the north wall, in current lines, near wavebreak and in the deeper sections of the broadwater. Its priced between $10 and $15, a decent colour range and stock hardware is good. Next is the Ecooda Jerkbait, superb finish and nice action should be a winner edge fishing the north wall and when fish are chasing a larger bait such as hardyheads or whiting. Price was around $15.00, very realistic colour range, stock hooks need changing though.
