    Mine were $10 for 10 (I think).

    I might clean out all of the old bait I have in the freezer, I think there is a bunch of mullets, coutta and maybe old pilchard and squid. Would mash it all up and pour in a bit of fish oil. Maybe throw in old cereal also.

    Hopefully get a feeding frenzy going. I quite like catching coutta.

    Probably best to head for a fishing place, how many pubs would be open early in the morning?

    I hate to think what I would be like if I start drinking at that time of day.

    The meeting place would need to be easy to find with sufficient parking and not overly busy, and probably should be fairly sheltered from the worst of the predicted winds.

    I have a few ideas but would check google earth first to refresh my mind.

    The area around limestone bay is also normally calm. I go diving there when I get sick of the being beaten by the waves and there is plenty of Butterfish and Moki in the weeds.
