Had a great morning out on the water last Sunday with Ruffy. Conditions were perfect as kingfishers bombed the water next to us and 5 eagles soared above. We caught some nice Bream and a couple of smaller ones, including a Perch.
Had a great time kayaking in the Yeerung River recently with Sarah, Kate and Keira. Conditions were great on the river even though it was quite windy in Marlo. The mouth to the ocean was closed, so with the water being quite high we were able to paddle way upstream, surrounded by huge Mahogony’s, Tree Ferns and plenty of birdlife
Brad Young invited me out on his boat around Marlo Last week (Fri-Sat) with young Harry to take part in the ‘Perch Search’. The aim is to catch local Estuary Perch as breeding stock for Fisheries Victoria’s East Gippsland stocking program. Youngy managed to catch a couple of ripper Bream before we landed a few Perch. Harry starred on Saturday with some nice Bream and Perch. My highlight was a 1.88kg Salmon on 4lb gear! Great fun … thanks to Youngy and Harry for a couple of fun sessions.
Had time late yesterday to put the boat in for a quick fish – it was well worth it with a speccy sunset, heaps of mullet, a nice Luderick and a couple of Bream (one big one over a kilo that was released).
I even had a ‘pelican present’ on my bonnet when I arrived back at the ramp
I’d encourage everyone to release their bigger fish, especially this time of year when they are spawning.
A great morning out near Marlo today. Sunshine, no wind and plenty of fish. Here’s dad with a couple of nice Luderick (biggest was 41cm, 0.98kg). Also scored some mullet and more Luderick. We were watching an Azure Kingfisher dive-bomb his prey when the first rod went crazy! The weather is finally starting to warm up and Spring is not too far away
A fun Winter’s day last Sunday, chasing perch from the kayak. All were released
A couple of awesome sessions this weekend with Dad. 18 degrees, sunny no wind … not bad for winter. A nice Bream and a few mullet today using bait. Yesterday was Dad’s first time fishing in a kayak, first time using surface lures and first Estuary Perch!
A few weeks ago, Meryn, Wayne, Bev and Ken joined us for an eco tour on the Marlo Estuary, Snowy River and Brodribb River. The weather was perfect with light winds and sunny skies. We got to see plenty of birdlife, including some Hooded Plovers and a fleeting glimpse of an Azure Kingfisher 🙂
Awesome day out in the boat on Saturday with Keira and Reuben (and Ash the dog). Caught a few nice fish and we were even entertained by a kingfisher and a nosy seal
