  1. With fishing for some of us being difficult at the moment I finally built up the courage to hit chippo after driving past it all my life to fish the upper reaches of the George’s or down the coast. After being in lockdown I couldn’t help but sneak out to some saltwater for a flick and what better time to do it then now, It took me awhile to understand that there is fish there and now my fishing journey has finally lead me there. The tide was starting to come in so I launched the yak from the ramp on Henry Lawson at the mouth of the lake at about 6:45 then headed up river and started the drift just before the millperra bridge back towards the mouth of the lake and then back into the lake to fish the slack water and edges since I thought that was a fair game plan after never fishing these waters. After going for a solid paddle I sounded up some good fish but couldn’t get any to bite I wasn’t sure what to throw either after having stint off the water due to lockdown I was abit rusty tbh haha, so it was back to basics and after fishing for an hour or so I picked up a 30cm flatty on a 2.5” zman grub in motor oil, my first fish from chippo, my goal was a EP, bream, or jew but I was on the board and I was happy. As the tide came in I ended up on the opposite side of the lake at a creek mouth which was out of cover, after a few casts I had some bites and i found some fish and next thing I know I was on out comes the net and I was was stoked to see a bream just shy of legal but healthy and thick in the net after a quick hook removal he was off I fished for another 45 minutes or so and decided to call It quits after I got some knots in my spool that my braid picked up from the rubbish in the lake. All in all the session was a success in exploring new grounds and finding some fish. I’m excited to dive into the secrets of the ocean of the west and hopefully figure out the pattern to local water way that I’ve abandoned for so long! I’ll definitely be back chippo! Tight lines, SWFisho 🤙🏽
  2. Gday fellow raiders, I’m going to hit chippo lakes or surrounding areas in the coming weeks to chase my first saltwater bass and fingers crossed EP, I’m located in campbelltown and fish the upper George’s regularly and I drive straight past chippo it’s only 25 minutes from home and I’ve heard and seen some good fish pulled out of there, I plan on figuring out the system to hopefully fish it regularly as I don’t get much time on the water. I know the fish are currently spawning up so I’m guessing they’ll be all schooling up towards the end of the system if anyone has any tips or headers I am all ears, I’ll be fishing out of a kayak also so if anyone has any spots to launch from as well that’ll be a pointer in the right direction. SWFisho, Tight lines 🤙🏽

  4. Decided at the last minute to accompany Nat (Nathan) on another quest to catch the elusive mulloway from Chippo Lakes which has thus far eluded me and it seemed as it was my curse..BUT NOT TODAY the monkey has finally been kicked right in the butt. We started off in the dark after Nathan had just finished long night shift and whilst not cold it was brisk enough when travelling in the early hours and about 4 or 5 minutes into our trip ,BAM we hit some old bread crate which gave us both a wake up We tried a spot which had thus far turned up bugger all for me in dozens of trips and so it was again today ,so off to play with the bream and Eps that have been around in very good numbers and they didn't disappoint us with a great run of top perch all above the mid thirties and some nice plus 30is bream...they are just great fun on light gear and I never ever tire of these top little scrappers.The day was getting on and we made our way back to the ramp and decided to try one last spot and what a great decision it turned out to be with both Nathan and myself scoring a couple of beaut little jewies on our light rods. I don't care how many times you hook school jewies on any gear they always make you feel warm and fuzzy inside with their first take and run I took a small video of Nathan releasing his mulloway and will post it later on. And the release...... Thanks for a top day out Nathan and I hope we can do this a lot more in the months and years to come. Regards Stewy
  5. Finally got out for a few hours with the better half (Donna) for a nice little session on the perch at Chippo Lakes and we werent dissapointed.The little fellas were everywhere and Donna and I boated around 40 fish which were all released. The green coloured squidgees seem to be a go too lure atm and although no monsters it was great to be out on the water with mrsswordie. I dont know why but Donna seems to be on a hot streak at the moment and cant seem to do a thing wrong even beating me to the first fish of the day again. I might have to ban her Regards Stewy and Donna
