Oyster leases are fish sanctuaries, providing cover, food and ambush points. The pristine clear waters of the Sapphire Coast Australia are home to many estuarine and oceanic species who either reside permanently or use these safe havens as a pitt stop. Using the tidal flow and long poles to navigate and guide through the oyster leases without using the noisy outboard allows you see the fish life without spooking them into hiding and cover.
