Bass Catch 15-16 October 2016

#1 Post by RvdK » Thu Sep 15, 2016 10:24 am

Dear members & friends,

Its that time of year again!  Bass Sydney’s Hawkesbury-Nepean Bass Catch is next month!  Its always a fun occasion, so support our club and NSW Fisheries.

A bit about the event:
The Hawkesbury / Nepean Bass Catch was the very first Bass Catch implemented way back in October 1988, when DPI Fisheries Scientists with Bass Sydney members figured that it would be a good way of collecting data on the Bass Fishery, as well as good excuse for both groups getting together for a weekends fishing.
The idea soon spread to the Hunter Native Fish club that started their own Bass catch on the Williams River the very next year.
The weekend is run as an event to collect data, not as a competition so there are no prizes given away, which makes for a much more relaxing weekend. DPI Fisheries are still today very much interested in the data collected from this event, as it gives a very good idea of fish numbers and movements, as well as recruitment to the upper reaches.

If you have any questions, please sent me a pm

Hope to see you there,

Rico van de Kerkhof
