Cockburn Sound- Water Colour. Run off from Swan River flood.

 Went out for squid session today, and I have never seen Cockburn Sound water so brown.

Could not see the bottom,even at a meter deep.

It's worse up North end of Garden Island, and no squid for me.

Tons of food

The fresh should be flushing a lot of food into the ocean? Should be  a good thing if you dont need visibility (or salty water)

 Out the front of the power

 Out the front of the power station, quite a sand bank has formed in close and i dare say the visibility is only 700mm. the water is filthy though there was a bloke fishing out my window yesterday and seemed to be doing ok.
