Snakes on the water

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.

Last fish for 2017

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.

Sunrise Kayak Fishing

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

Forgot the G&T’s

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

Kayaking on the Lagoon

On a beautiful summer’s day we headed off on a kayaking adventure in Cabbage Tree Lagoon. The scenery was spectacular and everyone enjoyed the amazing experience.

Thanks to John, Anne, Anne-Aelis and Aymeric, hopefully see you next time

 

The competition hots up!

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

Ecotour with Pete and Deb

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).
