Family Cockling day out.

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Guest75

    If you are into fishing and want to grab some cockles there is a family cockling day out at Goolwa.

    Organised by the Sea Rescue Squadron fishing club but non members are very welcome.

     

    Bring a picnic and have some fun!:jiggy::jiggy:

     

    It is 4WD as we are going to be driving down the Coorong.There might be some spare seats or some ferrying going on - we will be doing some ferrying.

     

    16th of November.

    Meet up 11.00am Beach Road car park,Goolwa (entrance to the Coorong)

     

    Everyone welcome.

    Look out for our white 4WD with the rego TYKE 01.

    If interested PM for my mobile.

     

    A great way to stock up on bait.Cockles are very expensive this year.I think the bag limit is 300 each.

     

    Have a look at the details on the Sea Rescue Squadron site here.............

    Weve driven along that beach a couple of times, but not too far last time................got the tide times wrong:arghh:. If you go along there with just a couple of you, and are lucky enough to be the only ones there, you get the wierd feeling of wilderness!. Good place to go..............but must be a 4wd.

    It is a great place and yup - do watch the tide or you'll end up swamped or spending the night down there.

     

    I don't think there is a specific time of tide that is best.

     

    We will be out at the low tide and coming in with it - just seems easier:)

    Hiya

     

    I'd bring some buckets,an esky to put your haul in,and some ice.

    You can fetch a rake and digging implements if you want.

    Apparently you do a shuffle with your feet to find them and make them rise to the top - keeps you fit as well!

     

    Bring a picnic and loads of sun cream:)

    Hi Donna

     

    It's pretty random as to where the cockles are - it might be a short walk or a hike.

    I think we are going a few K's down the beach.

    A few of are ferrying so the offer is there for you guys:)

     

    I've PM'd you my mobile in case you get lost........

    Thanks to those guys who turned up - nice to see you. :)

     

    Had a great time ,even if the cockles were a little elusive

    They are faster than I thought!

    The sand was nice and firm once on the beach - not like last time we were there :err:

    If anyone has 4WD and not been there yet - go!

     

    It was amazing to see so many people cockling - there must have been hundreds along the beach doing it.

     

    We all reckon that there will be some mature ones in a few weeks time.I'm off again to load up.

     

    If anything like this is coming up again I'll put up a post.:)
