Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin Fishing Field Day - July 2002.

The 2002 Cape to Cape Field Day was postponed to this weekend because of the rather dire conditions forecast for the designated weekend. This however was no guarantee that the weather would play along. As it turned out the weather on the Saturday was cloudy and windy with strong swell running. A few brave souls were at the sign-on including Malcolm Harris, Vix Alexander, George Holman, Ken Black, Tony D'Alonzo and Ben and Colin Lilburne. With the formalities completed they dispersed far and wide in search of fishable water.

Tony D'Alonzo told me it was more of a survival course than a fishing expedition with many spots wiped out or too dangerous to try. He described some pretty atrocious swells and acres of white water making any fishing difficult.

However the Surfcasters are a redoubtable bunch and set about catching what they could in the adverse conditions. Malcolm and Vix managed a few skippy and herring between them. George Holman did well to catch five species including herring, flathead, bream, blackfish and a leatherjacket.

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

But it was Tony D'Alonzo that once again managed to pull the rabbit from the hat. He struggled for good fish but did manage a great snook of 2.1 kg for the heaviest scale fish and also topped the heaviest bag. Some did not weigh in and probably decided it was too hard or too dangerous.

The rain that came through late on Saturday night put a further dampener on matters and it was a wet weigh-in at Busselton Jetty. Not the greatest Field Day with regard to attendance or catches but that is often the way with fishing. One takes the good with the bad and the participants seemed to have had a good time nonetheless.
