Nine members and one visitor fished the Moore River field day, three fished local. The weekend's weather was forecast to be
wet and wild but turned out to be overcast and light winds, good fishing conditions. That's as far as it went, Moore
River produced 6.7kg of fish and 357kg of seaweed. The local Field Day was no better.
We arrived Saturday morning to find that the river was still flowing out to sea, which left a large plume of dirty water
to the north and cutting off any access to beaches south, not that they looked much good anyway with broad stretches of
shallow water. Mixed in with the dirty water was tons of weed.
Cookie and TerryF had come up Friday and driven from Moore River along the tracks to Seabird. Everywhere they could get
to the beaches showed shallow washed out beaches with exposed rocks, sanded up reef holes, dirty water and weed everywhere.
