I’m afraid it’s not a seaway report as the lure of the macks had me offshore Sunday morning, from east of seaway to mermaid, only saw a few caught at mermaid and none for me. Headed out to palmy this morning via currumbin and got a 91cm spanish and a few other hits, bite offs on slugs. Gordo
My brother and I have also been hitting up the macks lately.
We were at mermaid on Sundaymorning and managed to land 4 Spaniards.
3 were over 1m and the other was in the 90s.
My mate was out there Saturday morning and said it was Spanish Kaos, everybody bagging out by 6.30am.
Over all the last few weeks we’ve been doing ok on the macks, palmy producing more spotties and producing the odd big Spaniard. Best spotty so far 95cm, best Spaniard 130cm.
On the seaway front, the jew have been very active. Live bait definitely paying off. Landed over 10 legals in our last 4 trips. A few solid tailor in the mix aswell.
Went out Saturday morning to mermaid and lost 5 slugs to mackerel. Didn’t land a thing bar macktuna and striped tuna. One of those mornings.
Hit the seaway up on the top of the tide and landed 3 mid 60s jew. Bigeye trevally and tailor were busting up in front of northwall and landed a few of those. Mackerel in the bustup as well, watched a fellow fisherman fight and lose a spotty attempting to gaff it right in front of northwall.
Plenty of surface action from 9 – 10am.
Thanks for the info Kane I was almost there Sat morning, but again too many weekend family duties. Those bite offs get a bit annoying and certainly after 5. I take it you’re not using wire on your slugs? I don’t normally except sometimes switch after a few bite offs but then don’t get hits. Sounds like a few jewies around too.
No wire used with the slugs. If the action is going off I sonetimes will, but it was pretty slow going that morning. 5 hits in 2 hours. Yea plenty of jew around. some good Jacks at the northwall aswell. Saw some young boys spear a couple of big ones on the high.
Mates went to mermaid this morning and bagged out on spotties
