Soldiers Point Marina
2nd September
After several days of rain, Monday 2nd September dawned bright and clear - perfect for taking a boat from Soldiers Point Marina onto Port Stephens Bay.
10 intrepid members boarded the boat and enjoyed a great day on the water - fishing, drinking, chatting. Could not be better!!

Out on the water - fish look out
A sparkling winter day for a spot of fishing at The Anchorage marina in Corlette on 24th July. Several species were around but the target for the day was black fish - unfortunately the wind meant that the black fish did not show!!
Black fish require special techniques if they are to be caught and resident expert John Townsend provided a tutorial on rigging lines for black fish prior to the day.
An idyllic start to the day

Time for discussion
The fishing group has resumed activity in July 2019 under the expert guidance of Tirrel Graham and Mike Warren. Three outings are planned in the latter half of the year and the Club's avid anglers will have the chance to cast their lines into the crystal blue waters around Port Stephens.
Come along and meet us!
Probus Club of Port Stephens meets at 9:30am on the second Thursday of every month at the Nelson Bay Bowling and Recreation Club, Stockton Street, Nelson Bay 2315.
