Longford Fishing Club Kids Dam 14/9/2013

Sponsored by fishingboatingtasmania.com.au and Petuna Aquaculture
The weather was perfect and with the dam receiving a fresh stocking of 3kg Atlantics a few days before, there was much interest in our first kids dam outing. Almost 30 children fished at various times throughout the day, with the 9am start having 25 children and their families lining the shore. It made for quite a spectacle with the Mums, Dads & Kids rushing to get the lines in when the call was made to start fishing and it wasn't long until the fish were hitting the bank. Big smiles on the kids" faces is what it's all about.

In total there were 28 fish caught ranging from 350 grams to 2.85 kg, with 18 of the kids landing one or more. There are plenty still there, so hopefully those who missed out this time will land a few next time.
Tom, Selwyn & Ron gave up their time to cook the BBQ and help with the weighing of fish. I kindly thank them for this as it allowed myself to spend time fishing with my kids. Thank you very much guys!
