Sunny skies and hot weather all throughout the Easter trip at Kyalite.
Edward River rising every day and over the 5 days rose 400mm from 1,2m -1.6m. In previous years we have experienced a drop in water level and with the river rising so quick all the bark and dirt dis-coloured the water even more.
All members arrived Thursday afternoon as some arrived Tuesday and Wednesday.
Friday was our best day of fishing and once again in comparison of previous trips, Friday has always been the best weigh in.
Most members fished the Wakool River and the Wakool produced the bigger fish Danial Trafford weighed in 10 Yellowbelly @ 12.580kg and took out the heaviest Y/B of 2.080kg. Neil Deveson managed some nice Yellowbelly in the Edward and the only Murray Cod @ 5.015kg, Cod weiged 3.105 (64cm). Tony Dorner 3.560kg and Ross Halligan 2,160kg also produced some excellent Yellowbelly from The Wakool. A Dicori 1.980kg and (Junior) Jaydon Mynott 2.555kg also weighed in some very good Yellowbelly. Jaydon Mynott weighed in the heaviest fish by a junior @ 1.765kg. Total fish, 26 Yellowbelly and 1 Murray Cod.
Best baits Shrimp or scrub worms Rob Miles done a tire on his boat trailer under 100km from new. Highlights of trip, Daniel Trafford had an issue at the ramp with hand brake and water when launching his boat. Ross’s toilet seat broke while seated and he fell backwards. Camp fire of a night time proved a success as members enjoyed the glow and heat while having a cool drink. Weather was hot and evenings still warm.
Thanks to all members for an a great trip. Trip Captain John Deveson
