Bream, bream everywhere and no a one to catch!
The school bream are getting bigger and bigger around the Waterbird Restaurant (Jim and Di's). The kids had a great time feeding the fish while poor old Dad was left to ponder how to catch the fellas. Some of the feeding bream would have been 40+ cms. Nice!
Mangrove did console himself
Proving yet again that his 2010 Manning Point Fishing Classic win was not a fluke, Mangrove Mike has had a successful afternoon chasing flatties on the Manning.
As is starting to become abundantly clear, the Evil Minnow flick baits (with S-Factor, of course) were the plastics that came up trumps again.
At a recent Manning Point Fishing Classic planning meeting, previous champions, Mangrove Mike, Stillwater Steve and Ganghook Gibbo, mixed with also-rans Fishin Phil and Codfish.

Mangrove Mike has won the 2010 Manning Point Fishing Classic with a big collection of Flatties and Bream over the weekend although he dropped a monster in the last hour after a 15 minute battle in front of the marina. Catfish Col took out second prize with a consistent collection of fish and Team Telligence on Fish 'n' Fil took out the team award.
Day 0 started early and the competition officially started at 3 pm. In an amazing rush, there were three fish reported in the first one minute.
