10/10/2020Tunk's Park Boat RampWazzyP
    Launched from the Tunks Park boat ramp at 7am. Fly fished the Tunks Park area, as well as under Spit Bridge, Clontarf, and Chinamans Beach. Not even a bump on fly. Got a few tailor trolling a Daiwa Double Clutch behind the kayak between spots.

      Fished Budgewoi Creek and Lake. Got a single bump pulling a Crazy Charlie from the shallows into deeper water, otherwise it was quiet. Did see some surface action but couldn't entice anything to the fly. Also tried flicking some soft plastics with no luck.

      • Tailor (0.4kg)
      Another tough session on the Lake in my Hobie Outback. Just the single tailor on fly. Got a few tailor, as well as a barracuda on lure.

        After picking up a good Aussie salmon on lure I tried my luck on fly in rather trying conditions (a big shore-break and onshore wind), but got nothing.

          I originally fished the shallows for bream and flathead, but had no luck. I then moved into the deeper water in the later afternoon, hoping for some pelagics. Sadly I only got the one tailor on lure (Daiwa Double Clutch). There was a strong south westerly blowing.

          • Dusky Flathead (0.6kg)
          Water was still dirty. Dropped a few fish on the pulling tide. Finally landed this flathead at peak low after lengthening my short tippet.

          • Yellowfin Bream (1kg)
          Water was very muddy but I managed to land my first bream. Sadly I lost 2 other fish while fiddling with my GoPro. Despite the dirty conditions, there were a lot of fish about, and I got a lot of small bumps.

          • Australian Bass (0.1kg)
          Water was much higher, and very dirty, due to heavy storms in the proceeding weeks. Fishing was tough. Missed a few takes on the surface from small fish, which added some excitement to the trip.

            Water was incredibly dirty from the recent floods, with a lot of debris such as trees and branches. Fished the shallows on fly, and had one small bump, otherwise nothing. Tried a lure in the deeper water and got a few follows by small kingfish, but nothing hooked up.
            25/1/2020Budgewoi Lake (and Creek)WazzyP
              Fished predominantly in Budgewoi Lake, although I did throw a few flies in Budgewoi Creek. Fished predominantly the channel, which in retrospect may have been the incorrect decision. Picked up a tailor on lure, but nothing on fly.
