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.

Great Lakes Easter 2011

We decided to go up to the Great Lake on Easter Saturday.  We went out on the same evening but to no prevail.
Woke up nice and early on Sunday morning about 4-30 am, we were down at the ramp by 4-45am but was too dark to launch the boat straight away so Matthew decided to go and have a spin off the end of the ramp, three casts later he had nailed a nice three pound brown.  Started fishing about 5-15am, we ended up with three for the morning.  A very well conditioned rainbow weighing about three and three quarter pounds and a nice triploid brown four pounds.

Great Lake and Lake King William Report 2011-02

Went up to Great Lake on Friday afternoon with Glen, young Jack and Bailey. Fished in Canal Bay and we managed three nice browns, I managed two on emergers and young Jack got one trolling. He lost three as well. South westerly breeze and quite cool, we saw a few taking gum beetles off the top, but things generally a bit tough.
