St Georges Basin Sunday Session

A mid day text message from Jim Harnwell inviting me to go for a Bream flick was hard to ignore. My Facebook feed has been flooded with some great catches from the Basin this week, more than likely bouncing back after copping a hammering from the tourist over the school holidays. A plan was hatched to meet up a Jim’s at 2pm and head out in his Cross Country boat. We arrived and decided to check out the¬†Wandandian Creek mouth, as with the amount of rain we’ve been having here on the coast, we thought that the could be a few fish hanging around waiting for any food to come flowing down stream. It didn’t exactly fire, with only 2 fish coming aboard, so we changed plans and headed for the islands.

Jim opting for a shallow diving Jackall Chubby and I went with a pink Ecogear Grass Minnow. I got a couple of slurps, but no hook ups and Jim managed another bream or 2 before when decided on another location change. This proved fruitless, so it was back to the islands and things started to fire up. We both change to a lightly weighted soft plastic and on the first cast we had a double hook up which of course means selfie time!



From there we stuck around the islands and proceeded to boat around 20 legal Bream, along with a few Flatties, a Snapper and a chunky whiting. I’ve been long overdue for a good session at St Georges Basin, and it was great to share a technique that I picked up last year with someone else!
