don't know if i'll be down there at 2am, i'll be there at low tide/sunrise.
There are a few guys that fish there right through the night, seen them there a few times. They always get there and camp out at the end of the pier.
one guy got there at 3:30am and left just before 9am... no fish.

Got 4 hooked, dropped 2 trying to get them up, they were only holding on by one tenticle
Got two resonable sized ones in the bucket.

Few and far between, what i did notice was the dozens of 100mm long squid around the pier just before the sun came up,
One big one was prowling around up the top end of the pier, but he wasn't hungry.

Someone got a kilo plus one there yesterday, and to others that were not too shabby.

Look great, well done.

100mm is great for fresh squid bait....

well today the high tide was 10ish, i left about 930 and i caught all the squid well after 7am so reckon a building tide 3 hours either side cant hurt, sunrise is the best down there, but dusk does carry some thumpers.... there is just more competition for them.


From 1 hour before sunrise until 10am seems to be the go down there, i reckon a whiting under a float down there just before dawn might encourage those big ones to have a crack.

where you casting further out and letting it sink to bottom and then slowly winding in with a few jigs of the rod?

i might have a fish in the morning, be warned i got down there today at 5am and there was 5 people fishing and nowhere to really fish near the end, i stuck around for 45 then left... too many garfishermen fishing, why i dont know because there are no gar there.

I did see a salmon jump out of the water on the right hand side, not a bad size either.

Someones surf rod went off like a maniac, nearly flipped it off the jetty pulled out about 10-20 meters of line then it dropped the hook.

Hello,

one of them took off like a rocket and dropped off and i got a inch of his tenticale....

there was 4 of us already squid fishing at end of pier and 3 guys came and tried to squash in, one of them got a leather jacket....
it was alittle windy, the three squid we hooked where caught on the boat ramp side...
dd not even see any around pier.... used a 2.5 glow body as it was still dark and when sun was up used a 2.5 pink

cant wait till the light and new jigs come, i recon as soon as we have a light down there they will come from deeper water....

Hello,

we found water to be dirty aswell, but around 7:30-8 the water was becoming clear that is when they showed up..
at the island squid are very fussy, they say there is some rock wall that people are bgging out ever fish, but i recon there will be so many people down there......

the tide and winds are looking good for during the week.........
