The Fishing Club hosted a training day for the Girl Guides. It was a great opportunity – something that will remain with them for rest of their lives – for recreation and pleasure!

Club members enjoyed fishing at Rainbow Beach recently, during which time there were good catches of dart to 41cm as well as a few nice-sized bream. Others also fished at Kauri Creek where some caught whiting and flathead, but generally the fishing was slow.

Squid are being caught throughout the Bay and there are good numbers of Sand Crabs appearing as well. Diver whiting are being caught in reasonable numbers but you have to move around and locate them.

Large numbers of small to just legal bream have been seen in the shallows and the recommended baits are strips of mullet or yabbies.

Ten members booked a fishing charter with Baitrunner and look forward to a great day out, catching a variety of fish.
