Put the boat in at 6am this morning and went straight to the wreck off stockton break wall to catch some lives. Filled the bait tank within 15 minutes with yakkas and small mullet. Headed out to north reef and realised we had wasted time catching bait in close. The school's of bait fish on the reef was unbelievable. Dropped a couple of lines to drift and also through out a small mullet as live bait as there were small kings on the buoy. Only caught rock cod on the bottom lines but surface mullet got smashed on the surface only 20 meters from the boat. Fought it for a while but pulled the hook before I could see colour. I was so devastated.
Headed about 500m north of the buoy and started another drift. This time picking up flat head. Would of caught 40-50 over a couple of drifts but only two keepers.
Good day on the water and excellent conditions.
