    They're starting to come inshore

    So just to prove last weekend wasn't a fluke ,went out for a couple hours Surf cast on Thursday evening

    Fish at top just over 5lb .others 2 1/2 -3 lb
    Shame I never had my camera ,was a seal asleep on the rocks bout 25m away & didn't seem a bit interested in what I was doing. Just blobbed out catching a few Z's ,just before dark wandered down to the water & disappeared. Worth going out just to see that.

    Good on you Chris you just confirmed it. I was talking to a chap this morning that fishes the rock below my house and he told me he had caught five nice snapper off the rock yesterday. I see the shags and the gannets are working hard inshore again. I was thinking of putting up a thread myself saying exactly what you have.
