Last Friday was lining up to be a hot day, but it was an awesome morning to be on the water around Marlo. Kathy, Greg and their grandkids Chaz and Tyler explored the Snowy and Brodribb Rivers. We watched as a Tiger snake swam across the Brodribb River. Not long after, Chaz landed a beautiful Bream and cracker Perch.
A great New Years Eve with Steve and Coxy. Finished with some good Bream smashing bait in shallow water. Watched a snake hunting for food along the bank and returned to the ramp at Marlo as a bunch of Stand Up Paddle Boarders with SUP Marlo paddled towards the entrance. Coxy even managed to catch a fish smaller than his hook
All fish were released to catch again another day.
A beautiful morning kayak fishing with Lesley and Russell. Russ caught his first ever fish on a lure – a nice Bream on a soft plastic (and released). Lesley persisted with a bent minnow surface lure, with some nice ‘follows’ and one Estuary Perch hookup. Unfortunately the EP got off before we got it into the kayak. Definitely worth the early start. Magic spot. Russ managed to hang on to the trophy … until next time
After a great kayaking eco tour a few days ago, John, Anne and Aymeric decided to join us on a fishing tour in the boat. After pumping some fresh sandworm for bait, we cruised around the Marlo waterways taking in some of the awesome scenery and wildlife, ending up in the Brodribb River where they scored a few nice Bream (and some little ones too)
Greg and Pete have been mates for years and been fishing many times together before, but they were smiling from ear to ear after an epic session on the Bream near Marlo yesterday evening. After a stormy start to the session when it threatened us with thunder, light rain and wind squalls, it quickly changed to a balmy still evening with the fish going nuts
Had a great day out yesterday with Jenny and Suzanne from England. The weather was perfect and the fish were biting. They scored some nice Bream around Lake Corringle and the Brodribb River as well as seeing plenty of birdlife … the only thing missing was the G & T’s … next time
Once they had caught enough fish for dinner the rest were released to fight another day
Well the trophy changed hands yesterday with Russell taking the honours in both the Bream category and the Mullet category. A beautiful morning out on the water at Marlo.
Lesley has a chance at taking the title back tomorrow morning with some kayak fishing near Marlo … hoping for some big Bream and maybe even a Perch
It was a great morning for an ecotour today with Pete and Deb. Although the Marlo estuary and the Snowy were quite brown after heavy rain high in the catchment last week, there was plenty to see. After the resident Seal waved us off from the Marlo Jetty, the birds put on a show, with Little Terns (recently arrived from Siberia), Hooded Plovers, Oystercatchers, Spoonbills, Cormorants, Darters and more. Eastern Water Dragons (adults and babies) were sunning themselves on the rocks as Whistling Kites cruised above. As we were checking out a Sea Eagles nest, a Heli Bomber flew past on its way to one of the local bush fires (most started by lightning storms over the past week).
