The wharf at the ramp holds em. Burley up and grab a few using size 10-12 hooks with either no sinker or the smallest split shot on 2kg mono.  Best time is dawn, during the day they seem to scatter a bit and are hard to get. Use a tiny bit of peeled prawn or a tiny piece of a filleted pillie. The trick is to make your bait look and behave in the water column exactly the same as the other thousands of pieces of burley floating around. 

Good luck!

Yes mate you will get them near the moored boats there.  Just burley up with chicken pellets and mashed up pillies.    I usually use a three hook Sabiki with some small bait like pillies.  I like to have a bit of wait on the bottom of the rig maybe the size of two peas.  Catching bait always seems easier before sun up. 

You will also occasionally catch pillies there too.
