1st Boat comp – Chew 31/3/24

Well a terrific turnout for this competition with 30 anglers taking part and again a few new faces have joined the Ospreys this year, it’s great to see our club growing, I haven’t seen that many for a long time.

The conditions on the day were dry and overcast with moderate north easterly wind most of the day.

7 of the 15 boats headed to Herons as the reports were that they stocked here a few days before.

The others spread out in the middle around the cages and a couple went over the north shore.

It was a bit coloured in Herons but the odd fish were caught in the morning close in down the right hand side from the trees after the green bank down to the dam.

By lunchtime all the boats left this area and went looking for other spots but some returned in the afternoon to catch a few more.

The cages fished well through the morning with a couple of anglers catching consistently but it slowed down after lunchtime.

The slack water in front of Denny island fished well also, a couple of limits came from there.

The north shore was also a popular place and fish were caught here too.

A Di 3 was the most popular line for the day but some did well on tip lines also.

Lots of fish were caught at the end of the retrieve on the hang.

9 anglers managed to catch the limit of 7 fish but some released a few more.
