Club Trips 2017
No trips reported.
To the best of my
knowledge and recollection there was another club
trip organised for March but as I have no photos or report
I am not sure how it worked out.
Don't know, but here are some photos from
No club trip was held
this month, some of us were lucky enough to go to Weipa
for ten days. Here are a few pix of the trip.
If you get the chance, go
There was a club trip planned for
the long weekend to the Port for salmon trout but
did not eventuate. In
late June we went down to the club dam, seven of us met at
the Yankallilla Bakery for a caffeine and calorie top up
before heading south. On arrival we had a bit of
drizzle but this soon cleared. It didn't take long
for the first hookup in the top dam, and almost everyone
caught a fish. Brad caught his biggest trout to
date, after sighting it in the lower dam. The
decision was made to try it out after an hour or so on the
top dam, to see if we had any survivors from our stocking
of a couple of years ago. Brads fish was about 1.6kg
and between 45 and 50cm long. This was fairly
typical of most fish in the upper dam as well. They
were all healthy fat and feisty. I caught one
smaller fish that probably came from the more recent
stocking. We are not sure how many fingerlings
survived as there seems to be some fat larger fish on
offer now. The weather turned out well, thanks for
coming along Wayne, John, Brad, Adam, Mike and Craig.
No club trip in July
No club trip in
planned for September to the Onk I think, but bad
It should get
better from now on as more fish move into the area.
The Clubs Xmas BBQ was
held on Sunday 10 December at the Patawolonga,
about a dozen turned up and thanks to John Neeves and Mike
Phillips we had a great time, good food and good company.
13th we had a fish at Thomsons Beach. Starting at
10am, Keith, Joe. Pierre, Adam and I fished for about
three hours and we only caught a few small salmon
trout. Only about three good yellowfin were sighted
and none landed. It was an ordinary day with strong
winds starting in the northeast and shifting north then
northwest to west with heavy high cloud cover, fairly
warm, about 38C inland. We will try again in the
near future. There were plenty of blue swimmer crabs
Wishing all members and visitors a happy and healthy Xmas
and hope to see you for a more active fishing program in
There have been a few in the Coorong and some local
wildlife as well!
