 Try the jetty. Seems to be a fair bit of action there. Ask The Jetty Rat, it seems he knows that jetty inside out.

 Yep I always have a read of jetty rats reports they seem to kill it down there,maybe able to leave the dog with the mrs and sneak out the jetty for a while when I'm there,was just hoping beach cause the dogs fairly excitable so a quite beach would be better although I do realise no where will be quite over Easter

I use 15 lb braid on a 5- 10 kg flickie for tailor. If you can get a wind about halfway up the jetty from the water you can usually flick em up and over the rail for the rest of it ( the busso jetty flick ). If the tailor is too big you may have to just pull it up with your hands once you get em to the jetty, just make sure you are wearing gloves. If you are going for the herring just a light flickie will do. If you are brave you can catch the tailor on a small 4 1/2 ft ugly stick, that is fun. I usually take 4 or 5 rods out there with different set ups, 1 for tailor, 1 for bait, 1 for lures, 1 for herring with a blob and a overhead. a few handlines don't go astray either. Fish for the tailor using unweighted mulies or fillets of snook.

 Cheers for the help guys,I didn't make it to the jetty but I got a couple of hours on the water with me mate who brought his tinny, we got two bonito,one trolling and the other on an unweighted muile and a then found a couple of squid over the weed beds.

we didn't have depth or fish finder or GPS points so we were just drifting blind,good fun all the same.

i also had a quick flick with the bream gear on the beach Sunday around lunch time and got a few hook ups on small whiting but kept dropping them close to my feet,just a bit of fun in the shallow clear water where I could see the whiting . Then I thought the mrs how to cast a lure,no birds nests in the braid or lures stuck in her skin or mine,she didn't hook up but she had fun all the same and now she's keen to catch a fish!!
