Headed to barker inlet on Sunday, arriving at 7:30 (went home at 12). It was near the bottom of the tide and had to walk the kayak to get into the first creek (mouth is really shallow). Once I arrived I thought "this is great, there will be no one else around" was a good looking bit of water. Then I hear a heap of crashing and splashing heading towards me from up the creek.......2 dolphins had the same idea as me and were hunting and crashing around all my bream snags....needless to say I caught none in that 1st creek. The dolphins couldn’t leave till the tide came in……so I had to move….friendly fellas circled the kayak a few times.

Moved to some other creeks and caught 8 bream for the day with the biggest 34cm. Things were a bit quiet, but this is an area I definitely want to explore further (this was my first time here).

Wasn’t having much luck on the HB’s or gulp chamo worms (never had much luck on gulp chamo worms, but other people love em????). What worked for me was grub style plastics fished deep in the snags. Without a well-placed cast there wasn’t even a small chance of scoring a fish.

Sorry no photos.

Seeing dolphins like that would be totally awesome. And bream of that size I would be happy with. Good work JW.
