Or possibly (dare I say it). Some yellow tail royals?
They had the shape of mulloway but there colouring was quite dark for a mulloway.

Plenty of Jews in there. Quite a few are dark much like the bream. The marina was a creek that had a healthy bream population and often had Jews cruise through when it was open over extended periods

Heard some reports while I was researching mulloway fishing in the south east, can't confirm any of the sources, but it would seem that it has happened.

Only before the creek was destroyed that I know of. I think security is to tight now

I'm pretty sure you can walk out onto the breakwall? Probably not a bad place to start I guess.
