was no club fishing trip organised for
January, next meeting is in February.
Joe Csortan gave me a call for a quick trip to the Coorong, so we had a go and here is the result. One reasonable jewie and a cracker salmon and a few small mullies.
Keith and I got down to the Coorong
recently to try for something a bit better than the
small mullies that have been prevalent near the Goolwa
Barrage, I got lucky and came up trumps with this one.
Only a bit over 80, still chasing the metre plus.
A club trip to Thomsons Beach had perfect weather, imperfect tides and very few fish. Three members attended and all had fun but were hoping for better results. Only a couple of small fish caught. Again the tides were hard to pick, with the turn to run in occurring about four hours later than predicted.
Back from Exmouth and in
Perth now. I had a reasonable trip with some challenging
days. No permit with Brett Wolf but did manage a Cobia and
Goldie. I could have caught as many queenies as I liked, but
focussed on permit (very shy) and GTs (3 shots) instead.
Learnt a bit about permit fishing from Brett - he’s very
good. Also caught giant herring, a few different trevallies,
queenies, a heap of wrasse, tuskies and a shark. others
caught: two permit from shore and quite a few GTs spotted
(1m fish landed) but no BBs- they all spat the hook or
reefed anglers. no billies.
Beach was the scene again, more info forthcoming.
