10 The Wagaitear, March 2014 Answers to last puzzle T I F F W O R D S 88 Gday all. I hope lines are tight and fish are being caught. The month of February has only given rain and mis ery to me catching barely any fish (none to brag about) and flooding all my favorite fishing spots (all secrets). Earlier in the month a few of my mates and I went to shady camp for a fish we had no luck there because of it being so flooded. We decided to have a flick at one of the little road side culverts 20km down the road. We were fishing there for about 10 minutes when suddenly a huge croc (4m+) sprung out of the water onto the road next to us and ran straight into the place we were fishing. It was only then when we knew we had to leave or get eaten! The jetty has been awfully quiet despite the occasional little queenie caught on little sardines. The creeks are yet to really fire with the rare barra being caught at the mouth, . Athough, I went down to noname creek on Friday the 21st of Feb to find out the whole creek was full of bait and bigger fish feeding on them. Unfortunately for me I only had a shallow diving lure and failed to hook anything with it. The month of march should be better fishing all round with the runoff setting in and hopefully my magic meter Barra is finally caught. Lets hope the fishing off the jetty to improve as we edge closer to the dry season.
