December Fishing Getaways Club Trip Report

Every year we put together a pre-Christmas Fishing Getaways Fishing Club trip on our vessel out of Mornington. This always promises to be great fun and an enjoyable get together for our club members and clients before the Christmas season takes over. This year we saw a gathering of 14 people on this trip which departed at 7am on Sunday 4th December - and for the first time in many years Jay was on time for our departure!! We did miss Gordon this year who has been unwell but he was well and truly represented by his daughter Megan who never misses a fishing trip if she can help it. Unfortunately we weren't blessed with the greatest of weather conditions or fishing conditions either with our catch for the day totalling only 1 Whiting, a few small Pinkies, a Banjo Shark and a rock!

We did still present the catch of the day prize which went to the father of our prize winner who came aboard with 3 women and knew he was doomed from the start - after all, is it not always women and children who outfish the men??? After one daughter catching a rock and not much else on that side of the boat, he managed to pull in a decent sized Wrass (the biggest fish caught for the day) to show them all up!


From the Fishing Getaways Fishing Club, we would like to wish all of our members and friends a Merry Christmas and
a safe and happy New Year!
