Greensborough Angling club had there annual trip to Khancoban pondage in NSW. The trip was attended by 14 members and all had a great time. All arrived by the Friday night and prepared for the next days fishing. Most of the fish caught were Brown Trout with only 2 Rrainbow Trout landed. The Saturday morning was very cold and icy with the fishing was good until 9-30 when it went dead, with Tim Plummer measuring 5 brown trout to 57 cm by 9-00 we all though it was going to be a good day. The Saturday ended up producing 16 trout with the biggest 57 cm. The Sunday came along and it was not as cold with an overcast day. 12 fish were landed by 12-00 when the total lengths were measured up and the biggest fish was 61 cm caught by John Whitfield and weighed 2.12 kg. The overall placings for the competition was 1/ Tim Plummer (3505mm) 2/ John Whitfield (1730mm) 3/ Russell Conway (1480mm). Many fines came out of the trip and a couple of members should take there cheque book to the next meeting to pay for there indiscretions.

Greensborough Angling club had a trip Lake Tyers over the weekend and the fishing was again a bit on the slow side. The largest fish caught were Tailor which were schooled up thick under the power lined as you head up the Nowa Nowa arm. The best meathod was using a deep diving large lure in any colour. The fish were mostly 900 grams in size and fought well. The flathead were hard to find but were eventally located up the Toolaloo arm below Burnt Bridge. These were landed on drop shot soft plastics retrieved very slowly. The average size of the flathead were 38cm in length. There was very little wind, no rain which meant for great weather. The Salmon were very hard to ind with a strong side current affecting the guys trying to fish of the beach.


Greensborough Angling club had a trip to Venus Bay where the club caught Salmon off the beach and caught alot of estuary perch on soft plastics in the Tarwin River upstream of the bridge. 8 members travelled down there and had a great weekend, although a bit cold in the mornings. The winner was Russell who came back to the weigh in with a bag of Salmon to overtake Tim who had estaury perch. The salmon were caught on pippie and the guys also had a soft plastic on the top hook which also proved affective. Al and Tim who fished in the Tarwin river used soft plastics to catch the estuary perch that were schooled up but not very big. Average size was aprox 30 cm in size.


Greensborough Angling club had a trip to Venus bay for the long weekend with quite a few fish being weighed in. Most guys headed to the estuary to have a fish but it took a while for everyone to see where they were going due to the fog. A few headed to beach No 4 and caught only smaller salmon to 350grams. A couple headed upto Tarwin lower to fish the river which was quite dirty but there was quite a few estuary perch landed to 33cm but mostly around the 30 cm. All in all it was a great social trip for the club and look forward to going back again.
