Bremer Bay Fishing Field Day - June 2002.

This event was lived up to its past history with fine weather and good fishing.

10 members and 2 visitors attended and all except one weighing in.

Saturday afternoon saw a number of us head off to Reef Beach to sample that venue and most had success with Salmon and a few Skippy. By the end of daylight, bag limits of Salmon were reached and in some cases exceeded. Both Tony and Filomena were seen returning fish to the briny. In fact Filomena kept only two and released the remainder under our Catch and Release policy.

Other members sought other areas to fish and were suitably rewarded. I believe that out of the 12 attendees only two came away without the "regulation" Salmon.

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

At the same venue were Southern Districts and Bunbury. I spoke to Southern Districts on Sunday morning and was informed that they had similar results.

As we all know by now Tony won the event with almost 30 kg of fish including a very nice shark, caught (I believe at Point Ann????) in the very early hours of the morning. Included in the bag was 8 species.

One species that was conspicuous by its absence was Herring. I only saw one hooked all weekend, but the master weighed at least one in.

Sunday night came in a little inclement so yours truly trotted off to the Fisherman's jetty for a spot of squid. Lots of signs that they had been there but only enough caught for a very small entree.

All in all this field day was most enjoyable with generally fine weather and good company. Malcolm and Vix stayed on for a couple of days to enjoy the peace and tranquillity that only Bremer Bay out of peak times can offer.

This report would not be complete without mentioning the hospitality of the managers at the Fisheries Caravan Park. Even though we were not staying at that venue, Leon squired Tony and myself out to Black Point and described some of the different fishing spots that regularly produced fish. Unfortunately I was not able to use them but I believe that Tony had some success.
