Some weeks ago I posted about seeing a thresher in the surf at Spencers Park …..there is no doubt about what it was , the only question is what it was feeding on …..

It was both sides of the last breaker line at low tide ….so in open water , and then inside the channel , whacking its tail on and off for the entire time we were watching it ..
It was bouncing in and out of the channel , working the wave on the outer sandbar ……I suspect it was feeding on whitebait …..as there were bugga all mullet around that early in the season …..

The thresher taken off the Pier was caught an hour before I got there , and the bloke was telling me about the fight , the big circling runs it went on , and how it surfaced between the surfers freaking them out lol ….
From memory , it was a still morning , very clear water , and glassy conditions
