Fished East arm last night in the hope of picking up something decent (yeah right).

Got there at about 7.30pm to a brisk NE breeze/wind. Set up at bay 20 and it looked like I was the only one out on the arm (I wonder why) - at least it was peaceful.

Decided to only fish one rod as the bait situation was not good. Packs of 'King' rag that were more like pauper rag, only marginally bigger than maddies and a pack of frozen slipper limpet. I had no whole squid that I would normally use to target Bass.

Anyway, made the best of it and fished on. The breeze/wind got stronger but was weird to see the sea totally flat calm with no movement. Bite detection was a problem but I persevered. A couple of small pin Whiting broke the fishless situation - I had begun to wonder if there was anything there.

The wind continued to gather pace and it began to a bit uncomfortable but I carried on anyway in the hope of at least one decent fish. It was not to be - by midnight I'd had enough of Whiting after Whiting - all pins - no sign of the bigger ones that had been there over Winter.

Will give it another go in the next few weeks and see if things change.

Thanks for the report Vic. Think I'll just live bait one of those pin whiting next time, at least it will avoid the others.
