Sixteen members and a visitor had the pleasure of being hosted by the Nagambie Angling Club at their clubrooms for a chance of catching some native fish in the lake and Goulburn River. The weather was quite hot but conditions were very good otherwise. The lake was a new venue for the Club and as such the anglers were not familiar with the water, submerged tree stumps local knowledge on where to fish. The Clubrooms and grounds were an ideal base for the competition and sociability of members.
A number of boats had difficulty with riding up on hidden tree stumps and some fun from trying to get off. Also there were some troublesome willows that were attracted to lures. Les Penrose made friends with a tiger snake and shared the same fishing spot. Two yellowbelly were brought to scale for the weekend both being caught by Tony Dorner for 1.785kgs. Golden Perch 1.205kg Some small cod were caught and released up to 54cm during the competition however President John Deveson took a nice 56cm fish after the competition on a John Costa lure. President John with Cod. The fish was released for another day. Nagambie Club had a competition on the Sunday arvo and demonstrated the value of local knowledge by catching 20 yellowbelly, 12 cod and a redfin all taken in a two hours on Sunday afternoon. The best cod was 78cm.
A special vote of thanks has to go to Nagambie Angling Club for the use of their facilities and to Niki Dunstein for providing and cooking the BBQ for the members on Saturday night.
