Midcoast Social Outing - 24/06/2018 - Rathmines

#1 Post by pdfarrell » Tue Jun 05, 2018 7:01 pm

Hi Midcoasters,

I will take the blame and apologise for not organising a social outing in May, but am picking a date and location for us all for June.

Sunday the 24th is the day, first light is the time, and Rathmines is the location. (See map below).
Had a nice outing a couple of weeks ago there, with the Bream on the chew....

Let us know if you can make it!

G'day Guys,

I enjoyed the day out and catching up with the Midcoasters.
Had a few hooks ups but nothing bragworthy
Hope you guys did better than I did.
Great location for fishing also.

Cheers BONES

Cracking winter morning.. and thanks to all those that came along.. 100% up on attendance from last June.
Winter can be tough fishing, and it showed this morning, but what a great morning to be out amongst it!

I started off slowly, with only a little squid on a ZX Blade (of all things)….
Missed a couple of hits on a Samaki Vibelicious thumper, before finally hooking up to a 48cm Flatty.
Found a stinky little Pike, before heading further out towards the main body of the Lake.

Pulled up tight on a Trevally, the first I've ever caught in Lake Mac.. he was foul hooked and gave a good account of himself.
He had quite a lot to say once on board!

Here's a quick vid of the tail end of the Trevor fight... and some pics taken earlier.

Video Link... seems like the embedding tags don't work anymore... :?:
