Following the exciting trip Waterbaby, Yakabe and JW had to Torrens Island a week or two ago, Scupper and I thought we'd have a look in this area to get some fish into the yaks. Unfortunately no-one told the fish and despite drifting and trolling through the creek area for 3-4hours we only managed to land maybe half a dozen bream between us, all in the 28-30cm range. But, there were literally thousands (okay then, hundreds :) )of bream in this creek - they were swarming through the shallow water and deep holes in large schools. I don't know if it was the state of the tide, the yaks startling the fish or they were just in travel mode, but we really did struggle to get a hit. Having said that, the few that we did tangle with really fought out of their category - we thought these 30cm fish were going to be 40cm fish and were really surprised when we got the fish on board. Unfortunately no pics because I had the camera set on movie mode and I have no idea how to grab a 'still' out of the movie - plus the pics are not exciting enough for me to persevere! anway, its an area that is sure to produce - next time we'll try it on a rising tide to see if that gets them in the mood.

The fish in those creeks are amazing in thier numbers. We could not believe the numbers ourselves. There are some crackers about also. Patience is the key. It will take a little bit of figuring out, but the rewards will be worth the effort.
