I managed to slip out to Four Springs Today and arrived at about 12:30 and started having a chat to a bloke at the ramp who was halfway through cooking a great smelling bacon and egg. After chatting for about 10 minutes I realised it was fellow president Reg Travers (hope I spelt it right Reg) who had already boated 2 healthy browns fishing plastics for the first time.
Hi everyone, Trev had a student free day today so no work for me either. Todd assured us we would catch fish At Brushy lagoon after a recent stocking of atlantics. We all met at the boat ramp around 8.30am and were joined by Reg Travers who is currently camping there. A quick coffee and we were ready to hook in!
Fished Four Springs again got there at about 9.00am to not much wind. Just enough to move the boat. Did a couple of drift for not even a touch. Then we drifted towards the trees out in the deep and it started.
Vic and I both caught fish in a short time, because then we cast for ages for nothing, just when we thought it was all done it started again. We ended up with our bag and put back 3 or 4.
We headed out to Four Springs this morning with Bill Williams and one thing on my mind...redemption. I use that word, as the day before; I took him out with nothing to show for our efforts but a chill in the back, 2 missed strikes... and a straightened hook. Today was another day however.
We left home at 6am this morning and met up with Phil and Bailey Zanetto at the Four Springs car park around 6.30 ish. A couple of cars also rolled in , but not "too many"... to speak of early. It is about at this time, I must admit to my own Tool Academy nomination. I launched my little 12 foot tinny, only to see the rope come undone and it drifting out of reach toward the middle of the lake.
