Slow & Windy NPD 8/7/18
« on: Mon 9 Jul 05:19 2018 »
I had great company yesterday morning at NPD but just as pity the fishing was not the same
.After a late windy start  at 8am and checking the traps I thought we were going to have a good day when Neil pulled an ok bass at the first place we tried.
How wrong can a guy be as after trying some more spots we had only boated 2 fish by 12 am.
We then tried some deeper water where we landed 2 under 30cm bass and a dozen or so forkies which percy and the eagles enjoyed.
Next spot was over near the far boundary marker where we located some better quality bass and no forkies.
We knocked off around 2pm with a final tally of 11 bass,1 yella and one tandan with everyone catching some good sized bass.
At least the boys ended up with a feed of redclaw to take home.
Cheers
Ray

Hi Ray ,
Thanks so much for the day out yesterday , we all had a great day !
Like last time I cruised NPD with you , you never gave up trying to put us onto fish .
As we discussed on the way home - the only difference between our last trip together  and yesterday's trip  was Nev's presence , he will have to lift his game !
I've attached some more photos and I'll let you know the recapture details on that yellowbelly when I get time to log my report.
Thank You !
Regards
Neil

    Would have thought redclaw be slow with cooler weather but not.

    That yella in milt?

    On past years experience the redclaw will be on for a couple of years until they eat up all the weed .Season makes no difference. In NPD they only seem to come on after a good rise in the dam level and then they breed up to eat the submerged grass and newly formed weed beds. Last time when they were on we were getting 30 to 40 redclaw in each pot with them even hanging on the outside.
    Cheers
