St Helens Report 4/6/2013
I had spoken to Jamie Henderson late last week (from St Helens bait n tackle) and he assured me that Georges bay was on fire. So armed with information straight from a local fishing guru, i set the plan for taking a day off into motion today. With 5 knot wind and 17 degrees forecast Trev decided it probably would be better to come and keep an eye on me rather than go to school.
Headed off at 7.30 am, as with a 12 o'clock low tide there was no reason to get up early (what a bonus).
We arrived at ten and picked up pop who was already at St Helens ,then straight up to see Jamie for the hot spots, he told us to head about 100 meters off the front of the boat ramp and the calamari should be thick...
He didn't disappoint us with that information , he just didn't tell us there would be pike as big as axe handles there also!!
After we caught as many calamari that we wanted, we decided to move to different spot and set the berley trail going. Within seconds the boat was surrounded with large garfish, we could have filled the boat if we where that way inclined.
What a great day fishing thanks Jamie,.... yes the bay is on fire.
