    Lake Cathie- found a feed!!!

    G’day raiders, Just a quick report from up here! I’m currently up here watching 3 of my kids compete in the State Cup touch football competition. My wife manage to book us a great accommodation unit on Lake Cathie. So yesterday arvo I walked down to the inlet and threw hardbodies for half an hour. Managed a nice flatty (released) a few other hits and got smoked by a good one on 4lb. This arvo, I went back with Jnr looking for some fish with an upgraded leader. The boy said he was keen for fish tacos tomorrow night, so the plan was to keep a few! Beautiful afternoon and the fish didn’t disappoint us! Kept these 4 and managed another whilst the young fella was cleaning the fish! Cheers scratchie!!!

    Well trained mate! I just spent 10hrs watching them play sport, the least they could do was let me get another 10 casts in! Haha 🤣

    Great report Jim. At least you managed a feed and spent some quality time on the water! I’m very lucky I don’t suffer from sea sickness but I know what your talking about the motion thing!! Especially when the bed keeps swinging side to side. Haha 🤣 cheers scratchie!!!

    Nambucca- Moderaters session!

    G’day raiders, Just a quick report from today! Got to team up with @dirvin21 for a short session throwing sps and hard bodies at his local, the Nambucca River. Dave was kind enough to supply me a yak and we met up at a gentleman hour of 9am and in the water by 930. After a short paddle to our intended area, we begin to cast. We both manage a few touches on sps, then suddenly I hook up! Not a monster but a little flatty and that one is safely returned. Next I can see from a distance Dave is on and the call of another flatty. He released it before I could get a pic but I believe him! Haha 🤣 We then reset the drift and the wind was really kicking up. After every cast we kept getting pushed on towards our intended target which made Fishing a little tough! We switched to hard bodies and Dave was first on, a little bream! I didn’t get a pic as he released it again, I believe him! Haha 🤣. Then conditions got worse and it was very difficult managing to cast and keep the yak steady, but we persisted and Dave rows up to me and this time shows me a Moses perch he caught!!! A quick discussion at this point and the call was to finish the drift which was nearly finished and call it quits. So two casts later Dave has packed up and I make the call of the day. “Dave, last cast for me and if I land it in between those two trees I’ll get one! Cast............ bullseye! And one twitch later zzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I’m on! I managed to pull the fish out and a nice healthy bream to finish the day off! Well, almost finish the day! Because we ended early it was time for a nice cold beverage before we parted ways! Thanks a heap champion! Your generosity was as much appreciated as the cold beer we had over looking the mighty Nambucca!!! Cheers scratchie!!!
