Woods Lake Report January 2010

I wish Mick had sent the no wind from Arthurs down the road to Woods as it was wild there today- I should have left the rod at home and brought my kite. Really gusty and swirly breeze most of the day, the met bureau weathermen got it wrong on the cloud as that wasnt there either ! Saw several anglers who were there for several hours with nothing; my mate and I ended up with 5- of course the Yep starred again. This time on Vic and Roses favourite pumpkinseed - fish were smallish .
The road is awful; why doesn't the council up there grade it... or state govt.. its very very rough. Very hard work; don't go to Woods if you want big fish; size was very disappointing..
