Yep did not find any. Headed out from Sellicks. 3'+ waves. Almost skied down towards myponga. Due to the bow wave I was creating from the force of the waves and wind I knew it was going to be hard yakka
coming home so I turned around about 1klm short of myponga. Damn it took forever to get back. 35+kph winds with a 3+' swell was interesting! Hardly looked at the sounder due to watching the sets coming through. I did see a huge fish arch! In 6m of water that stretched across the screen by a 1/3. I looked over the side as it got my attention but the water was not clear enough to spot what it was.
Did not see sambo school either but it was a good hitout for paddling technique in choppy seas etc. I'm a big fan of heading out in weather that I may not normally fish in to ensure I build up a knowledge base of what a can and can't do in my kayak during adverse weather conditions.
I think it has been covered under "safety" due to the fact that most yakers don't go out in crap "semi controlled) conditions and see and feel what it's like to be tipped over and or train in deep water re entries. Towards the end of last summer I was chasing a school off Aldinga and eventually gave up after much effort just trying to stay upright! When I got back home I checked Seabreeze to find out what the wind was doing and it was gusting at 70kph. So I know I can't fish in that weather! (or anything close to it!)
Hopefully after the next couple of days a school will turn up and we can have a long over due Sambo Hitout.
Will keep posting news of anything that arises.
Tight lines to all.
