salmon watch

tried westend no sign of any salmon the swell was pumping,not a total disaster,Timbo picked up a nice P Snapper,it started to look ordinary so left for home,there was huge schools of bait fish about 6 miles out but no predators were interested.
looks like next year for salmon or try Coventry reef etc.

Bad luck Uncle, but you've got to be in it to win it so hopefully you might still nail some before the seasons totally shot.

Did you try trolling though

Did you try trolling though or near the baitfish schools with some minnows? Trolled minnows caught the fish on the weekend for me, but several casts in and near the baitfish schools didnt result in anything (despite the lure/sp being matched to the baitfish)
