    what's the plan Ben? Kim's Rocky Road could be a handy bargaining tool. I know I don't let it out of the house for just anyone!!! The only way you'd get any home would be to hide it from yourself.....its a drug that can give you a nasty habit. fortunately the recipe is not too difficult.....but it gonna cost you.
    I'm hungry now.
    Roo,
    I think the plan is to find some bait, therefore some evening or early morning stuff will be on the cards, when the bait is most active. We will fish mostly day light hours but may do some night time stuff in bass straight, as i found fish there in April, they may still l be boofing after dark! I have a few spots under my sleeve, as does Navi, so between the two of us we should be totally confused were to go. I would say a fair bit of time will be spent exploring some new ground as well. Bloody rain at the moment is making me go stir crazy. Already done the tackle stores on the sunny coast this morning, and they reckon the rain will be here till Sunday. I am not a fan of being couped up at home. The computer will get a hiding!!!!!!! Gee the rocky road sound like serious stuff. I will have to warn you about Navi's brother Vin, he is like a big bear and eats like one also. Maybe 4 or 5 batches are on the cards, Kim!!!!!
    Bored already

    LGM, You aren't looking real well maybe you should stay home.... then make a miraculous recovery and come to mondy too!! So long as you beat them home you'll be all good. The rocky road is worth it

    Navi, I thought Steve was cooking breaky each morning while Foxie was giving us a briefing.
    Breaky @ Steve's 8am sharp.(I've pm'ed Steve how you like your eggs. )
    Briefing on days tips etc
    On the water by 9.30
    First fist by 10ish
    Sounds good.

    Early worm catches a cold....or a fish or something like that. I have a mental picture of some very good shallows(it was paddocks with cattle in January) immediately north of Bass Strait right up to the fence line opposite "A" Bay. these flats were mostly devoid of any structure (1 or 2 fallen logs) but the edge dropped into the main channel @ a 45 deg angle. I'm thinking of checking this area out. Looking forward to applying all this pent up excitement into cracking the Barra code. I seriously can't get any work done. We should have a team briefing on the water Saturday morning. Kim & I will have already had a look around on Friday arvo(although sometimes I wonder if I know what I'm looking for ) so we can form a combined plan of assault. I'll bring my laminated mud map of the dam and design a strategy to implement....and then probably do something else

    Kim was looking forward to leisurely morning sleep in till 8, someone else cooking brekkie, a gentlemen's hours start on the water and returning in time for sundowners on the deck. I knew it wouldn't last . bring it on.

    You'll need a boat tho' trev
    Come on trev, Share the love. I'm sure you've got a few sneaky secrets hidden up your.......sleeve. particularly like know how to target the mythical Bass population. If your up there on that weekend, keep your eye out for us in a White 4.55 Polycraft with "Reel Fun" & Ausfish stickers on the sides. Kim's rocky road is way better than the shop bought stuff, but you gotta get in quick. the magpies will be madly picking at it.

    Cheers Roo.

    I went digging through my Research Data(pile of old Magazines) to find the very article to keep my spirits up. "Barra in the Freezer" by Mr J.Wilhelm, QFM Annual No.9. I think some of you locals are trying a little too hard to throw us off the scent . The Jig is up, we're coming anyway. .
    Also have a read of the articles on the Sweetwater site by Johnny Mitchell. Some very interesting points to ponder.

    Cheers Roo.
