We still planning to hold our Kiddies Fishing Clinic on Monday afternoon at the main car park at the lagoon from 1pm till 4pm, there are 2 prizes up for grabs, 1 each for Boys and Girls based on the most Centimeters caught. It is free just bring your own rods, tackle and bait. The water colour is good and the high tide is after 2pm in the sea so if you fishing the picnic areas you will have incoming water till about 4pm.
It would be so nice to see the guys fishing at The Banks behaving like animals when walking to and fro to the beach as well as in the car park, animals don’t through rubbish about .Yesterday we fished the Banks we had 5 big baits out with various baits and while we were waiting for a pickup we scratched for some Shad or Snapper for swim baits, a Young 7 year old showed us how it was done, he caught enough shad for all of us to have a live bait, he was catching them on top of the bank. Not only did he out fish all of us combined he also put his own Chokka bait on and even cut his own Shad bait, his bait skills and catching skills amazed those who had not seen this little guy fish, he fishes like a pro and even unhooks his own catch even little Milkies that have a really tough mouth. So far today the Shad, puffers and pompano are been caught on main beach, one of the Pompano I am told is over a kg. Fishing for the weekend looks good as long as the water does not go clean but it is nice and cold.
Weather conditions are looking great for the weekend, most of the guys are looking to go out tomorrow and the water from the road looks a nice colour so maybe the game fish will pop up in numbers. Although the ski boat club closes at 1pm tomorrow and Sunday the grounds are still open to wash your boat.
