St Margaret's Father & Daughter Weekend 2017 Review

…it was back to Hinze Dam for St Margaret’s Anglican Girls’ School’s annual father and daughter fishing weekend. St Margaret’s commenced these weekends with Sports Tuition in 2011. St Margaret’s has an amazing school community. The weekends are always enjoyable to be a part of. Everyone gets in and helps. The girls did a fantastic job breadcrumbing the fillets, but prior to that it was a team of dad’s who were prepared to get in and help with the fish filleting. Over the weekend, the group fished in the upper reaches of Hinze from Sports Tuition’s electric powered boats. The catch was predominantly Australian bass but there was also one yellowbelly landed as well as an eel and a few eel-tailed catfish. The girls were excited and it was quality father and daughter time, that’s for sure. Before the fishing even commenced, one thing I loved seeing was the girls checking the shrimp traps each morning. It was quite muddy on the edges and it was refreshing to see the girls with mud all over them, and loving it! There was a few shrimp caught in the Wilson opera house style traps, which were later engulfed by some hungry fish, so the girls experienced the whole process from catching live bait, to catching fish, to preparing the fish for a meal…

Steve,
Thanks for another great weekend. Everyone I spoke to had a good time and the girls were very excited to have caught some fish. I have 'liked' your page on facebook and continue to tell all the other parents that they need to get along to your fishing weekends. I am very happy for you to publish the photo of Cate and myself.
Cheers, Craig Hughes

Hi Steve
Didn’t get a chance to say farewell on Sunday as we had to slip away mid morning. On behalf of Alice, Tilly and myself, thanks for a great weekend. Thoroughly enjoyable and a great vibe.
Look forward to next year.

Thanks Steve for a tremendous weekend.  You and your team put on a great show. Rose and I both had a great time and we both got to know quite a few new people a lot better that we're going to spend a fair amount of time with over the next few years. Rose's excitement over catching her first fish was also an experience both of us won't forget. Sorry we ducked away yesterday after the morning archery but it was Rose's birthday and she was keen to get home to a few presents and maybe Mum. See you at the next one of these.
