SUNDAY BBQ
This weekend there will be two BBQ’s/ weigh-ins,
one in Iluka and one at the club house. Lucky
Draw will still be done, and if you are at one of the
weigh-ins, whether you have fished or not (all you
have to do is turn-up), then you’re in with a chance.
The draw didn’t go off last week, Steve Kemp’s
name came out, but he was nursing a hang over.

What’s Bitting

information on two of our club Juniors Emily and
Daniel Barton. Both were in running for last
months fish of the month, but were pipped by a

Flathead on a Rainbow Trout Shad using 14lb
Fireline and 12 lb Trace, and Daniel 13 years caught
his 59cm Flathead on a 3inch Brown Mino, using
6lb Mono.

Gold Coast BREAM Classic March 2005
The following story and pictures come from the
ABT website. Great work Steve and Julian, number
two is under the belt.
“With double the number of teams registering for
the 2005 event, the Gold Coast Sportfishing Club's
BREAM Classic reflects the nationally increasing
popularity of tournament bream fishing.
And, on a day that saw the Coast's bream reluctant
to bite, QFM's team of Steve and Tim Morgan eked
out the largest limit (5/5, 2.61kg) to take home top
prize.
Hot on QFM's heels were Robert Kwiatkawski and
Dean Middleton, weighing a 5/5, 2.55kg bag, Jade
Masters/Andrew Beatty (5/5, 2.29), Col
Singleton/Maurice Blackman (3/5, 2.27kg) and
ABT (Simon Goldsmith/Bonny Taylor) with 5/5 for
2.01kg.

The Morgan brothers simultaneously fished a
topwater and sub-surface pattern to accumulate their
limit in the backwater canals of Lake Intrepid. Steve
fished a pink Ecogear Grass Minnow M on an
unweighted Owner Drop Shot hook, slow-rolling
the lure across the top, while Tim fished his
favourite 2" Atomic Fat Grub on a 1/20oz jig head
to put lookers into the live well.
                                                        BARRA HOLIDAY
"The bite was pretty tough today," Steve said, "but

original mould for a spinner especially designed for
jew. The resulting spinner design has been used
most successfully in that area over the last 15 years.

Following the theme of lure fishing for jew, the
brothers had many Bellbrook wobblers chewed and
dismembered in the channel beside their old home
at palmer’s Island. There the big fish freely
chopped at the mullet in the night time.

And so our prized foreign plug was often mused
over and its possibilities of representing a small
mullet often discussed. It hung from a shelf in our
Kombi for months, and many thousands of miles.
By way of the magnificent Norwegian fiords and
the placid fir fringed lakes of Finland and Sweden,
the lochs of Scotland and the coasts of Brittany,
Portugal and the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and
South Africa’s golden beaches, it swung by its large
trebles. It was sometimes out of favour with the

member of the newly formed Yamba Fishing Club.
He had spent a great deal of time fishing with John
Garven, and, although only 15 years of age, was
quite experienced at spinning up jewfish on
Japanese feathers. In recognising the possibilities
of a new development in spinning for jew, like Ross
before him, he exploited the inventiveness of a
teenage schoolboy. He deftly removed the round
leg of a chair, cut it to length, and suitably adorned
it with a bib and hooks. It is not difficult for us to
imagine the excitement and anticipation of his walk
