    If I was going I would be anchoring up and running a berley trail. Fishing with as little weight as possible and fishing at either sunrise or sunset.

    I usually fish Peel or Wellington Point depending on wind direction and tide using the same technique as Jackson. Light rods with 10-15 lb line, whole baits, no sinker to let the baits drift down the water column, 3/0 or 4/0 circle hooks generally. Usually 3-5M depth with a rubble / reef bottom. Normally catch 1-2 pan size snapper on sunrise or sunset. Plenty of catfish at Wello at present to keep you busy waiting for the snapper. Cheers SS
