Heads up, the 2018 Lake Illawarra Flathead Classic will be held on January 14. I have been told that the tide will be right.
Format will be pretty much the same as previous years. When I get more details I will add to this post.

Well I think it goes without saying that our first fishing comp for 2018 has just been announced.

Thanks Fletch.

Lyall, you will need to sign up at ocean storm fishing tackle which is next/north to MacDonalds at Warilla. North of shellharbour road and lake entrance road intersection. Meet with the boys at the winding boat ramp before 6 if you wish to fish with the south coast kayak fishers. I will most likely be somewhere around helping out the wsfc guys.

Gday Everyone

Forecast is definitely not for yak fishing. And seeing how this was going to be our first comp for the year
I'm afraid that as far as the club side is concerned we will not be holding a comp tomorrow.

The Lake Illawarra Flathead Classic is still on as far as I know.

No kayak fatty entered :cry: . Tough going for those who fished. Longest was caught at the ramp in front of me at 6.30am. 743mm, not a bad fish. There was a 505mm caught on the fly this year which also took out the mystery length... again tough going in that wind. Full results will go up on the WSFC facebook page i am told.
