For you blokes that fishing the seaway a fair bit probable know this alread, but the bloke that you see diving the south wall and pipeline constantly has a site on Facebook called “Diving the Gold Coast”. Ian has a great site and places up a lot of day to day pics of the seaway when he is diving. I have been following his site for a good 6 months and have noticed a few interesting things. One of interest, just about every time he puts up new pics there is “nearly” alway a school of jew somewhere in the back ground. I know this is a big call but they must be in the seaway nearly all year round. Some of his pics show schools of over 100 plus fish at times. Yesterdays pics had that number easy. Kills me when I go jew fishing and get nothing, you think well there are none around then the next day you see all these jewies on Ian’s site that were there the same day you were. ha ha thats fishing. Good to see the seaway is alive and health.
I love checking out Ians site… especially his vids, helps to get an idea of what where down there. id like him to do a vid from south wall to north wall along the pipe and looking left and right so we get to see the layout of the bottom and how the pipe sits in relation to the bottom.
Agree it’s great to site to check out and see the pipe up close. Some fantastic species like leopard sharks, groper shown lately and of course the jewies, trevs and kingies. It can only help promote and hopefully protect what a great spot we have from this crazy CST.
Jewies are certainly all year round. I’ve always got better numbers in warmer months but better quality in winter.
Wayno, you are definitely thinking along the same line as me. I wish I was a diver just to get down there and see what that bottom actually does in places.
Gordo, it really open your eyes to what is actually in the seaway. When you see these photos I can see why any talk about this CST is crazy and anyone that floats the idea need to open there eyes and realise what impact its going to have on this beautiful area.
