Club Trips 2019
was no club fishing trip organised for
January, next meeting is in February.
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
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.
Joe got up to Weipa, and
caught this wonderful wolf herring, apparently one of the
biggest seen up there.
I had a few days between work
in UCDavis and presenting at a conference in Canada on
Monday, so had 2 days guided fishing in New Orleans. Caught
my first black drum, 35 lb weighed, and got a redfish of
21lb. Just missed landing a sheepshead for the NOLA grand
slam. Missed lots of other fish. Water a little
coloured so you need to spot fish super carefully. Warm and
humid here. Matt.
A couple of boats made it over to
the Yorke Peninsula area for a fine day chasing
mulloway. Weather was perfect, actually a bit too good
with not a breath of wind. Fog en-route slowed us down a
little, but conditions on the water were wonderful. The
water was a bit too clear, a surprise given recent rain and
wind and a reasonable tide. End result was no mulloway
landed but plenty sighted up to and over a metre. They
just were not interested and that could have been because of a
recent blood worm run, or just fishing pressure.
A trip to the club dam in late August, but no results heard of
If you are going fishing and want company, then
email all members and invite them to meet at your
destination for an impromptu club trip. The
Coorong is starting to fire so keep that in mind.
