Bannockburn Anglers Club News

Our last outing was on Sunday 18th September to the two lakes of Purrumbete and Bullen Merri. Weigh in was at 1pm with senior and junior trophies up for grabs for the heaviest redfin and the heaviest trout/salmon.


The weather was not kind to us and as a result we didn’t get a huge turnout but one of our intrepid anglers, Bernie, was rewarded for his endurance landing a 3.6kg brown trout – see below – well done! We had a member catch an even bigger trout, over 5kg, the next day so the trout are biting at Purrumbete.

Our next outing will be a weekend away at Bullen Merri from Friday Sept 30th to Sunday Oct 2nd staying at the local club rooms and enjoying the Grand Final together. Weigh in will be at 1pm on Sunday with trophies for junior and senior fishers for the heaviest redfin and trout/salmon.

We will be having another outing in October, on Sunday October 16th. It will be a bay outing with the target fish snapper – weigh in at 1pm at Clifton Springs boat ramp, let’s hope the weather is kinder to us!
