Another fish alert, this one you won't want to miss!! Some seriously awesome opportunties out there right now. I just came back from one of my best ever trips
The southerly winds have pushed massive schools of frogmouth pilchards into the seaway, schools of predators are balling them up and smashing into them.
Big tailor(50cm+) smashing the froggies along the north wall (start of the runout)
Good size bigeyes (avg 55cm) smashing the froggies at the end of the south wall and around the pipeline(bottom and top of the tide)
Mack tuna schools (55-65cm)smashing the froggies over the pipeline(dusk)
Mid size GT's smashing them around north wavebreak.(last hour of the run in)
Big schools of queenies chasing them off the front of the north wall.(during the run in)
That was an afternoon trip, should be the same tomorrow, fish came on the bite around 2.30-3pm and we moved from one spot to the next catching the different species.
Just as a sneak peek, rather than try and catch GT's I spent the time trying to get my camera into the bustups, and the results speak for themselves, what we see on the surface is nothing compared to whats going on underneath..

That is an excellent shot Craig, some of those GT’s have very serious, and determined looks on their faces, I wouldn’t like to be in the boots of those hapless bait fish.
At least when we catch the GT’s, we throw them back, it looks like it could be curtains for these poor little buggers.
