A Quick question Gary...is anyone doing the barbie thing on Friday and Saturday nights this year?

cheers,
Greg

Folks

Garry has confirmed on the Event Facebook Page that one of the local Lions Clubs will be doing the food both nights so no need to cook a meal each night. Just rock up and have a chat and a good feed for a fair price.


Cheers

River for me, but starting to think I will be doing a point to point. Flying solo this year, my wife has to sit this one out.

Is the Steve still crowing about attempting the double ( dam and river each day )?

Steve is making a donation to the dam comp, fishing the river only so he qualifies for the prize draw...he must want two new kayaks....

I might do the same, $50 is good for more fish in the dam...

Yes, can enter twice to get into draw for both kayaks.  :youbeauty
And in theory fish one day on river & the other day on the lake, but points AND prizes for both locations will be separate to keep everyone happy.

Thanks Sel.  :youbeauty And appreciate you helping to keep in touch with the kayak groups regarding the 2012 event.

We've been loading up entry forms into the data base (another 5 arrived in PO box this morning), so far there's a good mix between the 2 events.

There's a random kayak up for grab for each location (lake & river)  so I won't give too specific information.

Also have duplicated the 1st, 2nd, 3rd prizes (points) so there equal for each location .....some noice prizes up for grabs there including Humminbird color units +........  ;)

Im excited, I'm really looking forward to the weekend, I have been talking to alot of people that have said the river is not fishing as well as previously. I think the fishing will depend on the day, (climate is what you plan for and weather is what you get..) I fished both days this weekend and did pretty well, be assured there are fish there. With the skills you guys have got, the dam will fish as well as it can.

I'm looking forward to catching up with like minded fishos :youbeauty :thanks

Thanks in advance for your effort Fitzy and the Sweetwater team. Bring it on!

Yep Craig, I couldn't agree more, the river is fishing very tough. I'm hoping the winds play ball as I think there are larger fish in the dam and ones that don't see a lure thrown at them in a river continuously all day since bass opening. I can't believe that you have to troll in that river to catch fish. I thought there would be an edge bite for sure.

Anyway, for me it depends on the forecast, I will have dam kayak and a creek one with me on the weekend, I will fish the river if I am forced to by the weather...

Cheers
