Yamba Report Xmas 2017- New Years 2018

Happy New Year to you all. I have nearly finished another family holiday in beautiful Yamba. What a place for a family holiday!

Short story is that  the fish were well and truly shut down.

We have just had a beautiful weekend in Sydney to coincide with the annual Bass Sydney October bass catch. You can find out more about the bass catch here. The short version is that Bass Sydney runs a fishing event twice a year in the Hawkesbury/Nepean where all fish caught are recorded for lengths and place of capture and then the data is fed back to fisheries.
