Lake Burbury Dec 31st 2010

Happy New Year to you and your family. Here is a photo of our recent trip to Lake Burbury. So much for summer, as you will see with a good snow fall on our way,.... almost a white Christmas!!.
With all the great rods that we have who would think that a cheap plastic one could catch such a terrific fish?. I had a couple of YEP lures that I received from the Longford fishing club so I put a rattling one on. When my grandson Caine yelled to take his rod I didn't think he would have a fish on.
It took Vic and I a good ten minutes to get it in the boat with me pulling the line and Vic winding. At the same time one of the other rods got a hit while I was fighting just to stop the plastic rod from breaking. I think the other rod had a brown on it but I didn't see it. Well I don't know who was the proudest me or my little boy but the fish is now waiting in my freezer for a special occasion.

 Regards Vic and Rose
