CLUB UPDATE

Fishing Report

The weather and fishing have been average of late but hopefully the swell will settle again soon and we can get back out on the whiting, flatties and snapper. Gummys should show in good numbers soon. We have a few bags of pippies if you need them but $13 per bag as they are hard to get

Let us know of your catches, even without GPS marks, but with photos, so we can share with our other club members

Paella and live music for 90 members and families last Friday

Thanks to Adrian and his daughter who provided great tasting seafood and also chicken & chorizo paella

Thanks to Colin and Gerry and their crew for some awesome 70’s music and dancing

Adrian, Colin and Gerry are all members and happy to help the club, anyone else with special skills please let us know

We held a meat raffle on the night, 3 lovely meat trays, proceeds to the Give Where You Live Charity

The first weekend of our annual fresh water comp is filling quickly, only 1 bed left in the lodge but room for swags on the grass available. Let us know if you want to come via return email. It’s a great weekend, try it even if you’re not an experienced freshy
