Swansea channel is ok to drift, you'll need heavier jig heads, otherwise anchor close to sandbars or mangroves and slow retrieve.

Try drifting further up channel toward Pelican, Belmont way.

Or try other spots in lake like Wangi Point, Murrays Beach or Pulbah Island.

For more info try the search function, heaps of posts about Swansea and Lake Macquarie.
