I have bitten the bullet and set a date. 20th to the 22nd October. The weekend before has the Starlo golden classic and weekend after the Australian Yellowbelly tournament. I can not get away over the school holidays. This makes it hard and really is the only weekend open for me in October.
I will try and get there on Thursday 19th afternoon for a fish.
Hopefully the lighting, thunder and horizontal rain will not be sharing the camp ground.
Goal again is to crack a 60cm Yellowbelly and or a Silver. Can't wait...

Two good fish yesterday. None so far today but the wind is blowing a gale now, and this morning waterskiers decided to spend a couple of hours going back and forth over the spots I wanted to fish
