October 2016 Goomba

Our Goomba is on Saturday, October 22nd at the Dunedin Causeway. The tide will be dropping and the solunar says the fish will be chewing when the sun comes up. Donald has volunteered to cook so bring your chairs and drinks to hang out and talk fishing around 1pm.

We launch around 7am from the west side just before the last bridge going onto the island. If you haven't been there before,be sure to be at the club meeting where we can answer any questions you have. If you are new to kayak fishing or would like to fish with someone rather than going on your own, let one of the club officers know and we will get you connected.
