on saturday it was ok but it was definately colder yesterday.... but you can normally find something in the caves... even had my torch... saw a yellow belly but it was too small... a few zebra's and some blacktail but nothing worth taking home...
looked liek today was going to be great... swell had dropped and the water was definately clearing!

Hey Eckhart,

Where did you see the white?  Arniston is notorious for them, I know a guy who had a very aggro smala one (3m) giv ehim a rev right against Porter rock.

CHeers,

Tony

Hi Eckart,

Where is Otter Bay in relation to the Arniston slipway ? Were they on a specific reef area or just randomly paddling around.Time those new seal pups started getting into the water so the sharks can bugger off to the islands to find their food elsewhere :ssswim:

Ottah bay is the bay just before the beacon (and Saxon reef) - named after the Ottah which was wrecked there.  It is also known as Shark bay !!

Oh well,fitting name then !

We often drift the back line there for Leeries,big shoals come through there when the conditions are right in 2m of water,makes for some excitement.
