Thanks Fitzy, Dale and BLA
« on: September 11, 2011, 06:25:04 PM »

First thing first congratulations to Mrs Novice (Dave's partner) for taking out the 2011 Wivenhoe Kayak and Canoe Convention.

Second thing i scored an Ocean Kayak Prowler 13. So for those who didn't enter this year please do it next, I mean for a measley $50 you can win some awesome prizes.
I would like to thank Fitz, Dale and everyone else who was involved in organising the convention. As a convention virgin I loved it and will be back again. I met plenty of people and learned a hell of a lot.
I would also like to thank all the people from BLA for supporting the event.  Absolutely stoked with the new yak can't wait to take her out.

Thanks again to all the people involved in organising.

Also congratulations to steve for that awesome cat-yellow-belly-fish he caught

OINK OINK

Catfish Al Out :thanks :thanks :thanks

Top event and top weekend guys. Thanks to all the sponsors and workers who make it happen. There is nothing else like this event on the calender and I hope it continues to grow. Next year the dam will hopefully be fishing a bit better.

Any fish pulled out of the dam Fitzy or were they all from the creek?

I know John V got one in the lake yesterday, we didn't ask & didn't read the trip planners so we aren't sure where the fish were caught, however I would think that 99% were from the ribba.

Cheers,

fitz..

John V did manage one from the lake trolling a spinnerbait.  From memory it came from the point opposite the camp on lumleys but I am certain he will let us know.

Colin

I'd like to thank everyone for braving the weather and showing up.  We want to see you all back again next year.  Here's hoping there are more lady winners and less Steve winners.

Perfectly said Wes . I have to agree .

Second thing i scored an Ocean Kayak Prowler 13. So for those who didn't enter this year please do it next, I mean for a measley $50 you can win some awesome prizes.

How big was the smile on his dial? I don't think I have seen a more happier winner . Well done Al.

Alison says thankyou to all who congratulated her and for all the kind words . She will be unbearable at work today :)  . Her weapons of choice for the winning fish were spinnerbaits , Bassman 3/8 oz in gold and black on Saturday , and white and caramel on Sunday. Purchased last week from Charltons at Redbank .

All three place getters fished from the same launch spot , mmmmm.....Dale's crystal ball was on the money .

Thanks again guys , it was a fantastic event .

Cheers,
Dave.

i should mention that i used a (fysshe lil somerset) 4-5mtr deep diver timber body lure in black with white stripes , i upgraded the hooks to decoy wide gap which are very sticky sharp hooks, you can pick them up at charltons. i upgrade all my hard bodies, blades and vibes to these hooks  ;)  that is what i meant to say when i was at the presentation  ;D should have left the coopers alone lol
