Whitebaited from just before 8am to 12:30, High tide was around 10:30. Was late getting there, but still got the spot I wanted. Someone left a few whiteboards there, and I think the earlier arrivals were to polite just to throw them out of the way.
Caught around 17 whitebait. Although did see one other school. Think I might give up on up river and return to the river mouth.
