Club Trips 2021
club fishing trip organised for late
January was unofficial, spur of the moment
to Thompsons, but no pictures due to the
lack of action. About five turned up
and conditions were good, fished early
morning through to about midday. Few
small salmon trout, but Keith got on after
most of us left.
Josef & Robyn kindly hosted our
belated Christmas BBQ at their property in
the hills. About 22 turned up,
plenty of good food including Josefs
yabbies. Again Matt caught the only
trout so becomes champion angler for the
second year in a row.
bit later in the month I decided to try
the Coorong once again for no result, it
was a hot day and Josef had also planned a
trip on the carp at Clayton, Craig went
"There were no fish feeding in
the usual spots as the water level was too high and you could
not see the backs out while they were feeding.They were there
but too deep. Later in the afternoon we went down to the
Boundary barrage where about 20 huge meter plus carp were moving
around the little fresh water outlet. Craig got four and
Josef one. We had fun on a 44 degree day but will have to wait
for the water level to go down."
Mud marlin look good for the next couple of months, given the
lack of other fish around at the moment.
Another first for Josef was a trip to Pt Victoria, in Josef's
words " Had a great day in unbelievably calm weather
conditions. Caught my first flathead on fly and first king
george whiting on a black weighted woolly bugger with rubber
worms attached. As a bonus my brother and I bagged out on
whiting all over 40cm watched by a pod of dolphins."
Sounds like a pretty much perfect day!
To add a bit more action Matt has done it again over on Yorke
Peninsula. I landed 4 kingies (53, 55, 57 and 67 cm) and
busted /pulled hooks on another 4 fish. And thanks to Adam and
Bruce for the tips.
Well, Matt has had a good week, "Hi guys,
I fished on Yorke Peninsula today and managed my first mullie on
fly, and second. Dropped a couple of fish. Was difficult to cast
with the windy conditions but happy to pop the mullie on fly
What's up guys? He's making us look bad!
