Great Lake Report 2/11/2013

Had a trip up to Great Lake today with a mate from Hobart, Graeme Cox. I met Coxy at Great Lake Lodge at around 10am and headed up the highway to a track down the lake just past Boundary Bay. We put the boat in and we headed over to Elizabeth Bay, very sunny and calm conditions, which made things a bit tough, but we managed five nice fish.

Caught fish on Dales Yep Red Nut and KW Galaxia, dropped a couple others, the browns were young fish and in good nick, rainbow also good nick and around 3lb.
Got Coxy back to where we put boat in at around 4pm, because he had to be back in Hobart to pick his wife up from the airport, probably missed the prime fishing time,would have liked to have fished up till dark.
Had a good session anyway.
