George's Bay and Grand Slam
We headed to St Helens Caravan Park on Tuesday and came home on Sunday. Fishing was quiet tuff in the bay only catching 8 trevally, 4 bream and lots of other bits and pieces. All trevally were caught on a wide range of plastics and bream on Yep hard bodies. We tried swimming a wide range of hard bodies but the Yep hard bodies were the only ones that would work.
On Saturday was the Grand Slam. I caught the trevally in the first five minutes which was a great start, then a salmon just size an hour later. Then we caught a weed whiting, mullet, flathead and leather jacket which are all worth 10 points each. With 10 minutes of the comp to go Donna snared a nice bream giving us a score of 128 points.
With a huge shock we came third in the comp and we all had a great day. Thanks Dale for supplying everyone with a hard body which contributed to us winning the third place trophy.
Presidents Jamie, Stu, Patrick and Queen Donna.
PS Once again the boys were pretty happy I was fishing with them - the numerous lure changes (they make them in such pretty colours!) two or three major knots (nothing a pair of scissors didn't fix) and a snag or two and losing a monster fish (I'm pretty sure it was a Kingfish - the boys didn't seem to agree - but I was the one holding the rod when it went crazy) all seemed trivial once I had caught the Bream:) and was pretty amazing considering the horrid reel they had me using - so have put in an order for a new one - I'm thinking a Certate reel would be fine:)
