Compleat Angler Illawarra in conjunction with Compleat Angler & Camping Outdoors Gregory Hills is running a Hobie demo day on Lake Illawarra, on Saturday July 21.

Pat Murphy proved it, that the flatties are still in Lake Illawarra in winter.

A great opportunity to find out more on the relative new way of getting on the water and a great way to spend your tax refund but you must register at either shop for the day as places are strictly limited.

Hayden, from the Illawarra shop, said just because it is windy it doesn’t stop the fish from feeding.

Be mindful of the conditions and fish appropriate spots but you can catch a feed or just wet a line even in ordinary weather.

Jordan Pirrone hit the stones in the westerly wind and scored his personal best groper near 8 kilos.

Trevally have been moving in around Kiama and salmon up to 2 kilos are also on the prowl.

Lake luderick are hungry with the bowling club wall going great guns.

Green weed is a little scarce so try green weed flys.
