We planned a trip at the start of the week with Marcus to head to Great Lake as he has been pretty keen to head up and chase a few on Hardbodies. He made the journey up from Smithton and we met up at Deloraine at around 6am, I was running a bit late as I was messing around at the Westbury shop getting supplies. But anyway, we made our way up the Tier and around to Swan Bay. Conditions looked superb from the warm vehicle on the way around, but we soon got a bit of a shock when we jumped out of the bus at the ramp! I think the big fella threw on more pants, jumpers, beanies and buffs before I could even find my "head sock'!
I've been meaning to get a report up earlier, but I've been flat-out this past week.....
Scored a day off work late last week, so I decided to head up to Great Lake for a bit of Trout action. With all the Bream fishing I have been doing of late (which isn't a bad thing) I haven't chased a Trout since about November last year! So I was pretty keen....
Bailey and I decided to head up to Cramps bay at the Great Lake today to try out our 400 Quintrex Hornet that I purchased a few days ago, ...so off we went. Arrived around 12 noon and fished until around 3.30pm.
Conditions weren't too bad, around 15 to 20 knots blowing out on main Lake coming from the West/S.West, but still fairly sheltered in Cramps.
Hugging the western shore, we fished with plastics and landed 11 trout, two being rainbows.
We fished the Great Lake on the way home from St.Clair today, got there around 10.30 am and fished until 2.30pm.
Caught 6 browns all released, caught fish out in the middle on beetle patterns and emergers, certainly were some good wind lanes out there.
