Fished Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st around the 155.
Not a lot of action, although several pods of dolphins and false killer whales out there.
Saw one small patch of skippies on Saturday back towards Barrier.
Went out to 300m from the 155 on Sunday and a boat near us caught some yellowfin, so we spent a couple of hours there waiting for the the next bite, but no luck.
Bait was sitting at 50-100m between the 155 and the Needles, but not a lot of sign of bait deeper.
Temp got up to 21 degrees closer to the Barrier.
