Wivenhoe ,this Sunday 6am
« on: June 25, 2013, 08:02:33 PM »
I'm thinking of hitting Wivenhoe this Sunday morning( June 30th) for a paddle and fish.

Launch at 6am from Kipper creek( on the Wivenhoe-Somerset rd a couple of Kms before the turnoff to billies bay). Access unfortunately is only for kayaks or canoes, from the carpark it is only a short drag down the hill to the water.

Open to any sweetwater members who want to tag along. Fish until we've had enough or until the wind turns up.

Now who's keen?

Wayne,

The early start is to minimize the chance of the wind curtailing the fishing prematurely. Plus , it's been awhile since I have enjoyed a paddle on BigW first thing in the morning( remember when we you used to do that regularly?). Also it gives me the afternoon for family commitments.

Fitz, what do you reckon? You coming for a paddle on the lake? We could do the bridge to bridge next fortnight.

Cheers,
Dave.

Yes Dave I remember the 6am starts in the freezing cold and the fog so thick you were flat out seeing the GPS let alone landmarks. That's why I want to launch at midday! Time to break out the uggies and big jumper...might see you there. It will give me a chance to give the Predator a proper paddle. Owned it for 6 months and only paddled it twice with the kids in it so never even fished out of it yet.

Will try and make it for a few hours. Will be great to finally meet some of you guys and get some Big W advice from the gurus. I'll be in the orange T120. 
Cheers, Beetle

Putting my hand up for this one too :)

Bout time I met some of you guys. Will be there in my olive outback.

Just to clarify, the launching point is the small parking area on the right side of the road (heading towards somerset) just before you go over the short bridge and the small overtaking lane that goes uphill after it?

Gunna bring my woolen socks I think!

Yep, that's the one.

I'll put some pics up when I get home from work, for those who haven't launched from there before.

Sounds like its going to be a fair size crew.... Should we do this sort of thing more often?

I like the idea of organised trips. Also gives me a great excuse to tell the missus it's a planned trip ;) Best way to learn is from others is my opinion. Know a lot about somerset but only been to bigW once and it's a very different dam.
