Was there on Friday night and the weekend before to get bait decided to fish at the same time. There are loads of Sardines around so just get a jig, and jig around the water pumps as thats were they seem to hanging about. I Fished the little carpark next to the platfrom at the start of the wharf entry or along with white wooden fence line on the left while going into the wharf. Sardines should be plethora a few hours before top of the tide. I used all methods including running sinker, float, free bait but nagz is right the water takes the bait everywhere and sure enough youll get snagged if your not watching. Try and keep your bait alive as i found that the fish werent taking the dead ones.
Ended up with a few undersize barra, a 70cm odd queenie, 2 Powertail, 2 eels and some kind of shark. Lost a few big takes my guess is my hook was two small. i was using 2.0 - 3.0 hooks.
seen plenty of queenies about they seemed to be busting up around the platform where there were seas of sardines.
