OK, who wants to chase 9kg Atlantics in Craigebourne Dam on Saturday the 30th of September? Early start - meet in town at 6am, back around midday.

I do

23rd, 30th Sept or 7th Oct all look good for me. But I say the earlier the better so I'd prefer 23rd.

Cheers

The 23rd suits me just nicely at this stage, will need to check with the Missus though, I think the Dragon-in-law is down that weekend so any excuse to get away from the house is good for me :lol:

23rd is good for me, shall we say meet somewhere in the city at 6 am? If your in-laws are staying John you might like to make it an overnight trip, or drive home via Zeehan... :D
On second thoughts, if we're all taking our own cars, there is probably no need to meet in town, we could just catch up at the Dam? Except I've never been there and I don't want to get lost.

I was thinking of driving home via the Spirit of Tasmania :lol:

Hmm where to meet, depnds on how everyone chooses to get there, via the Midlands Highway or via Richmond?

Only ever been there once myself, from Richmond.

BTW a regular Craigbourne Fisho has recomended a lure called a Rapala Husky Jerk, apparently they are quite deep divers and a gig hit with the Atlantics, anyone know it? He uses the Glass Minnow pattern to good effect in the 100mm and 150 mm

I'll be going via Richmond. This will be my second time there too.

We could meet at the boat ramp over from the dam wall. Just head up the road towards Colebrook from Richmond and when you see your first glimse of water on the right, coming down a big hill before Colebrook, you'll find a dirt road turn off on the right which takes you past a couple of farm houses and down to the dam.

Or alternatively meet at the Colebrrok turn off in Richmond.

How about the Colebrook turnoff in Richmond at 6.30 on the 23rd? Too early?

Hmm I have just hit a snag, literally, she who must be obeyed has granted me the leave, but dropped the bombshell that she needs the car that day :shock: :roll:

So I am still able to go, but am presently without wheels, I am trying to scrounge a loaner for the day :oops:

See you there Vert.
John - I could help with a lift if you can't get transport. I'm at Fern Tree, so its not THAT far out of the way. Let me know anyway.
I'm looking foward to the outing, this time I think I'll even bring a rod and reel. And a flak jacket.

Peter I might have to take you up on your offer, having trouble tracking down a car to borrow. Will the Merc handle the width of the Hobie?

Hiya John, Vert
Some 'family business' has cropped up for Saturday the 23rd. Apparently I knew about this.
It would be difficult, but not impossible, for me to extract myself from said business, but is Sunday the 24th a possibility for you gentlemen?
Apologies
Peter

I like the map. Just the kind of thing a newbie to the area, such as myself, needs.

Cheers
Craig
