Monster flatheads in the water during spring
SPRING is big flathead season on
the south coast and, right on cue, a
handful of monster lizards have
already been caught.
Jervis Bay-based guide Greg
Reid reports a few 80cm-plus fish
from St Georges Basin in the past
week or so. Greg has also spooked
a stack of big crocs in the shallows,
mainly on warm, sunny days -- so
they're definitely there.
Trophy flathead are best targeted
with large soft plastic lures like
140mm Squidgy Wrigglers and
five-inch Gulp Jerk Shads. Work
them slowly and maintain contact
with the bottom for best results.
Remember, large flathead (over
60cm) are all breeding females and
should be handled with care and
Wagonga Inlet at Narooma is
brimming with salmon and, as
these fish hoe into schools of bait,
species like trevally, bream, flat-
head and even mulloway are lurk-
ing below, cleaning up the scraps.
Trevally in particular are around
in very good numbers and there are
some big specimens well over a
kilogram being caught. Try a small
plastic like a 70mm Squidgy Wrig-
gler worked near the bottom.
Wagonga is also harbouring
large numbers of bream which are
biting well on hard-bodied lures
The beaches continue to be alive
with salmon and anglers shouldn't
have any difficulty catching them
on virtually any stretch of sand on
Offshore, there have been good
reports of kingfish south of Ber-
magui in about 50m of water.
Snapper are being taken off Mor-
uya on squid bait.
Trout anglers sight fishing the
shoreline at Lake Jindabyne are
getting some nice fish on fly. The
fish are mainly good-sized hungry
browns that have returned from
spawning and are actively feeding
in very shallow water.
Further afield, there have been
good reports from Blowering Dam,
which is producing lots of quality
redfin on lures.
Wyangala Dam is looking good
too, with lots of golden perch
reportedly caught during the recent

THE Wests Lions will take on the
Tuggeranong Vikings in this week-
end's grand final of the John I Dent
Wests won through to the
decider after outplaying the Gun-
gahlin Eagles 32-13 in Saturday's
preliminary final at Viking Park.
Wests dominated the majority of
the match against an out-of-sorts
Gungahlin side, scoring four tries
The two sides exchanged penalty
goals early on before the opening
try finally came in the 29th minute
when Wests inside centre Adrian
Turner sliced through and raced
over under the posts off the back of
With Wests leading 13-6 at half-
time, two quick tries after the break
to Ben Coutts and Matt Pankhurst
had Gungahlin down by 21 points
with 25 minutes remaining and
ended the match as a contest.
Fly-half Angus McKerchar
played a leading role in Wests'
victory, having a direct hand in two
tries and kicking strongly, while
Jesse Mogg landed five goals in a
strong individual performance.
Wests will head into the grand
final as underdogs as their
opponent Tuggeranong has won its
past 10 matches, including wins of
41-3 and 57-15 over Wests.

Premier league season ends on fiery note
THE regular season of the Can-
berra Women's Premier League
ended on a fiery note, with a fierce
clash between third placed
Weston Creek and Gungahlin
United at Nicholls. The 2-2 draw
was a physical affair with five
yellow cards being given during
Weston got a one-goal lead
sixteen minutes in after some slick
passing from defence into attack.
Becky Rouche was able to strike
the ball cleanly from 23 yards out
as Gungahlin goalkeeper Taylor
had little chance of saving the
shot. Gungahlin found an equal-
iser just four minutes later when
Celia Brown's strike found the
back of the net. The scores stayed
level as neither side could grab the
In the 60th minute young
Maddie Cox stepped up and gave
Gungahlin an unexpected lead as
Bruce Green's side looked for
their first win against Weston
Creek this season. The Gungahlin
party though was spoiled ten
minutes out from time when
substitute Cash Dolan whipped in
a free-kick to find Rach Critten-
den free at the back post as she
tapped it in to level the scores at
2-2. Gungahlin finish off their
season on a high note as they now
finish fifth in their first season of
the Tradies Premier League.
Over at the ANU Willows,
Tuggeranong United withheld a
spirited Canberra FC side winning
in injury time 2-1.
It was a scrappy match with
neither side being able to domi-
nate in the midfield but 33
minutes in Freyja Jacobson scored
to hand United a one goal lead
into half-time. Canberra FC
though were eager to get their first
win this season and in the 50th
minute they got the equaliser
through Georgia Stewart.
Canberra FC continued to pec-
ker at the goal but the United
defence stood strong and were
determined not to finish the
season with a loss. Adam Byrne's
team would leave it to injury time
when Alex Lawrence was pushed
in the back inside the area giving
United a penalty. Jacobson step-
ped up and did not hesitate in
smashing home the winner.
At the same venue, ANU
Willows, Woden Valley have
shown that they are one of the
teams to beat come next week as
they put on a dominant display
against fourth place Belwest Fox-
Woden looked sharp in attack
and should have had more if their
shooting on goal was better.
Woden though had to wait till just
before the half to get their first
when Catherine Brown scored.
Brown scored just five minutes
into the second half but Ashleigh
Palombi stole the show when she
managed a six minute hat-trick.
Palombi sat just one goal behind
Belconnen's Caitlin Munoz
before this round's fixtures in the
league golden boot but Munoz
seemed to have a sixth sense as
she managed to grab a hat-trick
herself against ANU as Belconnen
defeated the students 8-0.
A double to Katie Woodman
and goals to Amy Spence,
Michelle Thompson and Amy
Wilson sealed the big victory for
the League Champions as they
look forward to next weekend's
Next weekend Belconnen Unit-
ed will play Belwest Foxes and
Woden Valley come up against
Weston Creek in their semi-final
