cottlesloe groyne repot

 got there 6.am this morning , one other guy there.

started off on the small spinners and got nothing .. switched to a sabiki rig and got the usual blowies and loads of these small red blotchy green/brown fish , thought they were rock cod as someone had told me but on a quick look now deffo not ! anyone know ?

got nothing on the mulies/3gang but got a few sand whiting off the bottom

gave the squidgees a go and yer they got hammered but im assuming by blowies , correct ?

caught a small fish roughly same bright white colour of whiting but in the shape of a tarwhine .. all my tarwhine have had the yellowy gold tinge to them .. any ideas ?

anyway stuck it back out as live on a large octopus hook even tho the fella who had now rocked up said there was no point as theres nothing big enough to take it .. cast it out wound it in after abit of a hit and the little fella had a decent bite out the middle of his spine .. any knowledge of what would do that ? 

Any way gorgeous morning once the sun crept up but as per NOTHING FOR BREAKFAST ... oh and mass respect to all the nutter swimmers without wetsuits ha !!!

 Can you describe the bite out of the livie? How big was the bite mark? What shape? Were there teeth marks? How far apart?

I am pretty confident that it will be a squid that had a go at your livie.

But definitely worth trying, some decent fish do frequent that spot!

 

And yes, those swimmers are nutters.  Not because of their choice in swimwear, because of some toothies I've seen caught there!

 find of like what i imagine

 find of like what i imagine a human bite would look like using the front teeth ?

any confirmation on the small red cod looking things lads , caught them everywhere and whenever i ask a local they come up with a different name .. the fella next to me filled a bucket of them so assume his intentions were to get a feed

snags is it any better in general on an arvo just old boy i was speaking to said youd never get a tailor in the morning whereas in afternoon much better chance ?

 I've had most my success in the evenings.

I haven't fished many mornings there, and when I have I've got doughnuts.

 

That is not to say that you can't catch a feed in the morning though. But like most popular spots, it is very hit & miss.

 If the bite out of the livie wa just behind the back of the head then it was almost definitely a squid. If they're around they will maul any and every livie you throw out. The blotchy green and brown fish is most probably a wrasse

 No worries, maybe take a pic next time you catch one and it should be easily identified on here
