Mad members brave freezing cold for monthly outing

WE SURE have some mad members in our Rest Point Hotel Copmanhurst Social Fishing Club.

Everyone met at Brooms Head on the Saturday of the long weekend for this month's outing. As everyone knows, Saturday was absolutely wet, windy and freezing cold. But some dedicated members decided they would brave it all for the sake of catching a fish.

According to Mal, Janette S was the maddest woman there. While the rest of them were a little soggy, she was absolutely wet-wet.

Catches at Brooms Head were virtually non-existent, but they all gave it a good try going from Redcliffe, Sandon River and back to Brooms Head.

Mal L with the Cummings boys caught one bream and Mal lost his nice little halco, total catch weight 0.252kg. Chris G fished at Sandon River and got a good catch of flathead and trevally for a total catch weight 0.932kg. Greg C and family spent most of the day under shelter. Andrew and Michael caught two bream then a flathead at the Quarry. Rory and Crystal's fishing was a complete washout.

Lizzie and Adrian fished Saturday night down at Minnie Water catching a bream and two flathead, total catch weight 1.208kg.

Sunday's fishing was a bit better. Tony M caught a nice bream at Yamba and a flathead at the Quarry at Maclean, total catch 1.784kg. Jason F and family fished at Boatshed - no results. But Madison had a good time playing in the mud and Jason said he hated to think what she caught from that.

At weigh in the scales couldn't be found, so Lynn M dashed home and brought back her kitchen scales - well they did the job as good as anything.
