Tried dunany point today,(sat 1/10th), water was like choclate and lots of weed close in. Moved on around towards port beach and it was nice and clear with no weed. I had only my spinning gear with me so not much to report but a few places between dunany and port beach looked good for a bit of bait fishing, maybe give it a shot tomorrow..

Went to the port beach area this morning to dig some lugs and then fished the dunany point area. Both areas were very clear with only a small bit of floating weed at dunany point, but there no problem fishing with only tiny amounts getting caught on the leaders etc.
Good things come to those who bait.
