Happy New (Club) Year. The 2016-17 annual Club Competition has closed now – remember that all capture forms must be with the Recorder (Mick Peel) by the 14th July. The results will be announced at the Presentation Night in September. This year, the Presentation Night will be held on a Friday – the 1st of September at the Eastlakes Football Club in Kingston.
The recent June outing was the traditional Queen's Birthday long weekend trip to Narooma. This year the fishing was a bit slower than normal, but I heard the quality of fish was good and everyone that attended had a great time.
Next fishing year kicks off with the July outing to Ulladulla. We will be staying at Burrill Lake (the BIG4 Bungalow Park on Burrill Lake), which provides easy access to the estuary and is only a short drive to Ulladulla - a great launching spot for offshore fishing. I plan to head out to the Ulladulla reef if the seas are kind (the kingfish are usually keen on jigs in July), or just hit the beach....maybe both! Put your name down on the attendance sheet circulating in the next meeting if you'd like to come or register your interest on the website.
