Great Lake 1/1/2012

We fished Great Lake on the weekend with Bailey and Jack Seabourne. We managed to catch 16 trout, three being rainbows, caught fish on dry fly and a few on softies. Some nice fish were taken out the middle of the lake on my orange dry. “Shark fishing” out here is fantastic!, all visual, polaroiding fish cruising up wind lanes and taking the dry,...can't beat it.

A quick report from the Great Lake 11/12/2011

This afternoon Bailey, Jack Seabourne and myself went looking for a suitable camp site on the western side of the Great Lake so that we can spend a few days fishing there over Xmas, wasn’t a fishing trip, we threw the rods in, had to have a few casts while we were there.

Great Lake and Lake Augusta West 7/11/2011

Alan Donohue, Bailey, Jack Seabourne and myself fished at the Great Lake on Saturday afternoon in very bright sunny conditions and landed a few nice browns, Dale Howard wanted us to try a new softie for him which is a 2.5 inch black & gold paddle tail called “Devils tongue”, and it worked well in the Great Lake and in Augusta, catching several trout.

Arthurs Lake and Great Lake Report 22/10/2011

After working afternoon shift Friday night- got an early knock off and headed straight to the Great Lake to stay, ready for an early start to fish Arthurs Lake on Saturday morning.

 

Great Lake Report 16/10/2011

It’s me again with a report from the Great Lake today.
Bailey & I went to the Nineteen Lagoons to fish a couple of lakes that I haven't fished for a few years but it was blowing a “bloody gale” so we decided to fish the Great Lake from the shore using softies.

Great Lake Report 25/9/2011

I was invited to join Dale and Trevor Howard in the Highlands and spent a fantastic day on the water with them. We arrived at the Swan Bay around 11am and soon had the Express Cavalier pointed in the direction of our first destination. This shoreline fished very slow, so we shot over to another area which usually produces some good specimens and we soon had 4 nice Browns in the boat within about 20mins. We caught these on YEP Minnows in the Gold Bomber colour and Black & Gold Flappers.

Great Lake Report 24/9/2011 #2 (Phil)

Decided to fish Sandbanks Bay at Great Lake today, was going to Bradys Lake but decided on Great Lake instead.
Bailey and I arrived at the Cramps Bay ramp around 10am and headed to Sandbanks, we caught 14 brownies, releasing most due to them being in fairly poor condition, it certainly was a day for losing fish.

Great Lake Report 24/9/2011 - (President Todd)

Fished Great Lake today with fellow President Mark Tapsell. The weather sightly on the cool side until the wind abated around 2pm. Cast soft plastics around the edges of Swan Bay and Tods corner. Finished with five on the plastics, four of them were in very poor condition with the only fish of quality coming from Tods.

 Cramps Bay - A True Story

President Matthew Hayes sent forward this photo taken of a fish he caught from the shore at Cramps Bay recently.
Whilst cleaning it he found no less than 5 soft plastics in it's stomach contents, three with jig heads and line still attached. He also noticed half a "black n gold t tail" with line coming out of it's vent.
As the fish was only a pound an a half in weight, it would be very doubtful that it beat five anglers, the most likely explanation we can put forward is that this brown trout was picking up soft plastics that had been previously snagged by fisherpeople, as part of it's diet.
Cramps Bay fish are reported as being very slabby at the moment so perhaps there isn't a lot of tucker about in this area?
True story!!
Regards,
President Todd.

Cramps Bay 10/09/2011

Headed up to Cramps Bay on Saturday. It wasn't pleasant at all, blowing 15 knot South Westerly's with 25 knot gusts coming through, which made it bloody freezing.
We arrived at the boat ramp 1pm and left at 4pm.

Great Lake August 22nd 2011

I fished Great Lake today with Bailey, Dale and Trev Howard.
We got to Cramps Bay at around 10am to a calm lake, fished the shoreline  north of the Cramps bay ramp and then moved up to Sandbanks bay.
All up, we caught 21 brownies between us, releasing quite a few.
Fish averaged around the 1kg mark, some only in average nick.
They had been feeding heavily on worms, stick caddis and snail.
