NPD 18/12/10


Recommended Posts

I had the pleasure of being invited by Feral to have myself and my two kids join him and his daughter down at NPD trolling for Bass as well as chasing gar to keep the kids happy and collecting redclaw. The bass didn't really want to play the game although both Feral and myself did get good hits but we are still to determine whether the hits were from the bass that went back into the timber or whether it was just the timber and was wishful thinking on our behalf.

We checked the shrimp pots first for some bait and managed to get a good enough amount to keep us occupied.

We then travelled to check our pots we discovered they were empty so the share farmers seemed to be at work again. We left just after lunch having had Feral catch five gar, my daughter Ryleigh catch 4 gar and my son Lachlan catch 2 gar. You will see in the photos attached they were impressed with their efforts.Pretty good too because my daughter almost needed some disciplinary intervention just to go onto the boat in the first place. We also managed to catch about 260 redclaw which Feral kindly gave to me.It went down a treat at my mates birthday party that night.Mind you I couldn't stomach what they do in sucking the insides of the heads dry :sick:

Thanks Feral for a great morning. fun had by all.
