Club Trips 2020
club fishing trip organised for late
January was at Clayton, to try for mud
bonefish. We had four boats, and set
out to follow in the footsteps of Steve
Josef & John, Mike & Matt, Craig
Lee and John, and Brad and Adrian. A
bit of manouvering through shallow water
saw us spread out over a couple of lagoon
areas with a few soft spots but mainly
knee to thigh deep water. Conditions
were good and I think everyone caught fish
although they were not easy.
Visibility wasn't great and the fish were
mostly sub surface and able to be spotted
in shallower areas. Followed up by a
sausage sizzle organised by Mike and the
day ended well.
The club fishing trips were not organised for
March or April due to Covid 19 restrictions.
The club fishing trip
for May was the club dam.
- Matt, Lee,
Craig and Mike arrived at the main dam around 10.15 am. Cloudy
skies, light winds and some drizzle. Dam was very low (see pics)
with a layer of green algae
across most of the bottom. Edges were very muddy in places and
we all had that sinking
feeling at some point. 5 trout were hooked with 2 landed by Matt
and Lee. All healthy
rainbows of around 1-1.5kg. Fishing slowed so we stopped for a
sausage sizzle around 1pm,
another short session after lunch but no fish caught. Successful
flies were Woolly Buggers
and a Tom Jones.
Dam needs a significant increase in water level before the end
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.
