Housie Estuary - 5/4

Got the Striper skunk off this morning but it was freezing. Fished about an hour and a half, had four hits and landed three - all feisty bright 18 inchers.

From local reports it sounds like the fish are now well distributed from the mouth of the river upstream to the Dam at Derby. Walking back to shore there was no sign of any bait - usually at this time there are schools of immature silversides around. The consensus seams to be that everything is a couple of weeks later than normal - whatever normal is, that sounds about right.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
