Greenough Fishing Field Day - September 2002.

The S Bend trip had been eagerly awaited some time. Although I had spent a number of years living in Geraldton during my youth, fishing at that time was not a high priority. This was an excellent opportunity to re-visit some known spots and explore a myriad of new ones.

Saturday morning saw 19 members and 2 visitors sign in at the Greenough River Caravan Park. Discussion centred around the pros and cons of different locations while we waited for a couple of late comers. They duly arrived looking rather harried from their frantic dash from Perth that morning.

All were keen to get going and quickly dispersed to their choosen spots. With such a great distance between boundaries that was the last we saw of some of them until the weigh in. Some of us went fishing while others were lured away by the AFL grand final.

The Club owns an air conditioned holiday house at Kalbarri which is available for rent to the public and club members at competitive rates

Maureen, Joy and visitor Jan Hall were based in Geraldton so elected to fish that area. Chas and Peter Stoeckel's group fished the Dongara area where they were based. The others in the know fished what proved to be the most productive area around S Bend.

The weather was kind to us with easterly winds in the morning and a moderate sea breeze in the afternoon (moderate by Geraldton standards that is).

Vix and I fished nine mile Saturday afternoon and were rewarded with a nice bag of tailor. New members Colin and Ben Lilburne joined us on the Sunday afternoon with Ben landing 5 good size tailor.

A helping hand in rig making by George to new member John Romano resulted in John landing 5 tailor in quick succession, there is nothing like experience to make a task seem easy.

The weigh in was held in Dongara on the Monday morning with only eleven people attending. Tailor was the predominant species, the heaviest was a 2 kilo fish by another new member Paul Thompson. The more experienced members however had a good range of species in their bags. Tony brought in 4 Mulloway, a shark and some good tailor. George also landed 2 Mulloway and presented the heaviest bag of tailor.

All in all a great trip, good weather and a wide variety of fishy spots to choose from.

Due to the separation of the group over a wide area, the traditional long weekend BBQ was not held this time. Maybe we should think about reducing the boundaries in the future to keep the group within easy driving distance of each other.

Hope to see you all on the next field day. Malcolm Harris. Field Day Officer.
