And if metro season is poor...

 ...everyone will be blaming them. The reality is...a strong Leeuwin current will kill the metro season more than anything. We've had three straight pearlers, we're due for a few bad years. It's a cyclical thing.

 Yeah, they come around the corner and hit that, it sends them out wide and you may well see them coming back in up Geraldton way, I remember them doing that some 5 odd years ago.

 And traditionally, the salmon usually come on around Anzac Day, and that’s still 10 days away.

 I was there that day. There

 I was there that day. There were 4 or 5 other schools along the 4wd part of the beach for the rest of the day. Pros didn't disturb them or the reccies at all. 

I had a great session and bagged a few solid fish.

 

I say good luck to them.

Try not to pass judgement off a few photos with no Context.

 

Those pros won't take enough to dent the population. Thats a tiny school worth in those tubs. If they were taking multiple schools a day then ID be worried.
