Chris Head with his first Black Bream – St Georges Basin

Well what a tight finish to the Club’s fishing year! The Club Championship was looking very close in last month’s Recorder’s Report. I was thinking that my name looked good at the top of the table, but I’ve heard there’s been some fantastic fish caught since then. But there’s still time - with a month to go and fish on the bite, anyone could take out the competition.

Keith with a nice Tuross River Jewfish

What a great month March is turning out to be.
The March outing was to the Narooma Convention on the Canberra Day long weekend. This time around the Club organised a gamefishing charter on Nitro on the Saturday for six members, which really produced the goods. Most anglers caught a couple of legal kingfish and some nice reef fish as well. The charter was so successful the Club has again booked Nitro for our return trip to Narooma on the June long weekend. A list will be circulating at the next meeting – if you're interested; put your name down (the cost will be somewhere between $250 and $300 for the day).

Well where did Summer go? February marks the end of Summer and has turned up more excellent fishing. Brian Stacy has put in some time gamefishing down the South Coast and managed a great marlin at the end of January, followed by some mahi mahi at the Jess Sams Tournament in Ulladulla.

Daniel McNeice with two cracker Black Bream

Well summer has well and truly arrived and the fishing is pretty hot too!

I managed to squeeze in a day trip to Ulladulla just after the New Year on a wind change day. The seas were still a bit bumpy, but manageable. I planned to have a kingfish jigging session with past CFC President, Darren Hossack but all we could hook was snapper – good size snapper! We left them biting – what an awesome day!

Firstly, a BIG congratulations to the Burrinjuck Chairperson (Sarah Borman), Sponsorship Officer (Brian Stacy) and all the members that helped out at the 39th Annual Burrinjuck Convention.
