Generally I reckon August to be a poor month, nearly all schoolies and tourists. I look forward to September (and even more to the later autumn months). Anyway, fished the same stretch of coast on 31.08 and on 01.09, same time of day, same lures. On 31.08 I had four schoolies and a pollack. On 01.09 a five-pounder and two about three pounds apiece; also a pollack -- but not a single wee-small bass. August is gone, let the fun begin.
