Last year I fished the south

Last year I fished the south wall of Hillaries, where it meets the beach.  It was really windy and a storm was brewing and the rain just starting, but the salmon were biting.  The water pushed alot of weed in and there was just this small clearing about 40mx40m in the corner.

There were about 6 or 8 folks there casting slices and we all pulled 5-6 pcs each around the 5kg mark.   I have never seem such a frenzy before on a beach, with tangles, bust offs etc, but the bite went on for quite a while allowing me to re rig twice and still get into them.
