Bellerive Bluff 24/11/2006

Had to drop the kids off at scouts, so I went of for 2 hours at Bellerive Bluff. Got there at 7:15, and fished to 8:45. Conditions were good, with a heavy broken cloud, and a downstream wind that was sheltered by the bluff. There was one other fisherman. The tide was very low. Fished hard, and was about to give up at 8:30 when I finally got a nice fish. I was bored, and was trying different casting techniques to see what got the best distance. After one not so good cast I was reelling in as fast as possible when the fish hit. It was under 0.5 kg -- but nice and chunky.

Tyenna River 17 & 18/11/2006

Took the kids camping at the Tyenna

We got there about 3:00 pm. Set up the tent, and then tried to get the kids to fish. They got bored, and wanted to play in the tent, so I walked down to the river. Got two hits in quick succession, so I tried to convince the kids to fish. Finally got them motivated, and went to the weir. Saw a platypus, but didnt manage any fish. Got back, cooked dinner, and went to bed.

The next morning I got up early and went down to the river before the kids got up. Got a small fish, but nothing of note. Then packed up with the kids and came home so Elizabeth could get to her horse riding.

Cremorne Canal 11/11/2006

Alex and Elizabeth had to go over the Lauderdale to play, so I dropped in and fished for an hour at Cremorne canal. Tide was dropping, but the wind was howling! Fished at the lagoon side of the canal. Got one very small salmon after a lot of work.
