As a result of the expressions of interest on the forum; earlier today I booked a site to camp for the weekend 12-13 August, and the plan is weekend, or either day if you wish to come along.

Headman and Dodge will arrive at site 44 Captain Logan ground mid morning Sat 12....Headman depart arvo Sun 13...and I'll depart morning Mon 14.

The plan is fish Sat and Sunday, or any part of the weekend you wish, that suits you, and the overnighters will no doubt BBQ and have a few beverages and spin a few yarns.

Page 1 of the link following has big W maps by YakAtak, and page 3 has Dodge post showing sites viewed by YA and I.

For those who wish to camp overnight Sat it may be worthwhile booking a site by number soon to all be roughly in the same area as other akffers, however there is no doubt there will be plenty of space without booking, you just have to take pot luck as to location

Nice one Richo :)

I called SEQ Water just a moment ago and requested a campsite for the Saturday night. The lady mentioned she had received three calls all asking to be around the same area today already :wink:

I'm booked in to site 43 for Saturday night, departing Sunday.

If anyone wants to crash in my camper trailer for the evening (BYO bedding) and share the cost just send me a PM.

I can't make the Aug 6 day due to work, but will make a big effort to get there on either the 12th or 13th to meet some of you guys and have a fish.

Chris will be great if you can get out on either 12th [arvo] or 13th [allday] as it would be good to put a face to your username.

You misread Aug 6, it was actually a feeler for sometime in Aug 2006 by YakAtak to find interest in bigW, so you are missing nothing while working that day. :wink:

I will be there :D but I have to work on Saturday which will rule me out for camping over night :( (#@!* work), unless I can swap with a fellow coworker to enable me to have the whole Saturday at Wivenhoe. I will not book a site until I am more definate in my decision. I will defintely be there on Sunday very early to have the whole day down there to meet and fish with fellow akff members. Looking forward to putting faces to forum names. Until next time, see you all at The Big W.

P.S - Would love to increase the size of my PB bass. :roll:

John, I'll be using a fairly small tent, so there'll be plenty of space on my site for you, and also sure you will get a decent bass, just get some hard body lures, they seem to be the shiznit. I'm still keen for sunday week, if you want a hand chosing lures let me now. ;)

G'day Karl, I am also still very keen for a Sunday reccie of The Big W again, will talk to you as the weekend gets closer. Lure situation is now under control, thanks for your offer. Catch you soon Karl.

P.S - I will certainly take up your offer of shared tent site if I can get the Saturday off, I will share the site fee with you. Thanks.

G'day fellow Big W camp weekenders,

Just a warning/notification that there will be a half day all electric bass comp on at the Big W on the 13th August. From my past experience fishing the Cressbrook Dam during or just after an electric comp, the bass will tend to shut down. Can't exactly say why, most likely to much boat traffic.

It is something you can all think about. They ususally kick of around 7.00am. We could enter and show them how it's done from a kayak. Karl's fish would of left them for dead.

I have organised at work for someone to do my Saturday shift, so it leaves me open to join the rest around the campfire on Saturday night. Hope that site offer still stands Karl.

Yeah, we should be fine mate, Between the 3 sites that are booked I'm sure there'll be plenty of room for you and Lizardwizard to squeeze in. ;) Last time I had my 4-6man dome tent, a 3m x 4m tarp and still would have had room for a small dome tent. Richo is camping out of his van so he'll have oodles of room on his site.

Only three weeks to the posted outing weekend date from today...........

Only changes from last Saturdays list is fishinswing has moved from the DAY blokes, to CAMPING and joins YakAtak on site 45.

Still only eight akffers confirmed at this point as starters

fishtales only just noticed your username change, so have adjusted accordingly
