Bream are funny things

I had an interesting day the other day. We were filming the ROBs that we are making to restore shellfish reefs in Moreton Bay. The idea was to get a stack of bream around them so they look pretty. It was in only about waist deep water. 

I burleyed up with pillies and squid. There were heaps of bream around. they love all the structure that the shellfish reefs make.

The funny thing was they were not really interested in the food offerings. 

At the end of it all we threw in the rest of the pillies and the squid and it sat on the bottom. Instead of the bream coming in for a feed... they buggered off?

They were milling around on the sand but with the bait in the water they went elsewhere. 

Confused. Anyone wanna shed some light on this? 

On the complete opposite spectrum to this, I once hooked one on 80lb line! Sometimes they seem to be the most finicky fish but other times they seem to eat everything!
