Hello mate, I know this is after you were going to go but might be of some use as you've not had many updates. Went to East beach today. High water was just after 1 pm. First rod in the water by 11.10 with frozen blacks on two small hooks. Second rod out soon after with a live bait rig. I know the live bait rig will work better at night but wanted to see what it was like. Both rods straight into Whiting. Lovely flat water and a bit of sun made it even more enjoyable. Final tally 10 whiting and an impact lead someone had lost. Had a few more bites but left them. No amazing fish but learnt a bit more and didn't loose any of my tackle for a changeHas anyone fished east beach recently? Hoping to fish Sunday or Monday any reports would be appreciated.

Nice. I bet you were busy with that many.Thanks for the reply Ragster, yes I fished it Monday fished from 10.30 to 4.00pm, fished 2 hook flapper with rag and lug tipped with mackerel and live bait rig on the other rod, live bait rig was getting whiting but no other takers, on the other rod I had 33 channel and 12 pout whiting with 1smouth hound pup and 1 eel so nothing spectacular but saved a blank and kept me busy. Strange thing was that if the worm was tipped with squid I didn't get a bit.
If you're reliant on the reports for a venue then chances are you already missed the best fishing!Has no one fished here recently? Either it is so good no one want to tell anyone or its crap and no one has been.
