Swan Fish - Winter 07' Video

Footage of the Swan Fish comp. Rumours were a plenty that there had been big GT's in the river the night before. Three very well respected fisho's had been on an all night expedition the previous evening and alerted the crew to some potential world recordbreaking fish cruising the swan. So the day was full of electricity as the boys watched for the big fish cruising past the burswood. Hope you enjoy.

Nice video Andy. Congrats on the PB to Rickets.  Looked like a nice day for it.

Wrong time, wrong place for you Kasey.  The GT's were smashing bait balls up against the bridge pylons.....just upstream.

Video footage

Mon, 2007-08-27 08:32

A fair bit is still on the cutting room floor, but instead of doing two vids I thought I would just make this one a bit longer. Unfortunately I had to compress the vid significantly to fit it in under 40mb.

I was looking for some formula one music to go with the handle cranking but couldn't find any. I think a bit more time and effort and it would have been slick, but I figured everyone will want to see the footage sooner rather than later.


Cheers

Knob spin

Mon, 2007-08-27 13:14


I agree Nick, the spinning of the handle with the gloves just caught my eye while everyone was crowding around talking to Kasey about the awesome outfit he showed us. I've been looking for that sort of close-up footage to slip in to some of the other vids but its hard to get when the boat is rocking.

Sorry SPESS but your GT popper action is still on the cutting room floor.

Sherbs didn't follow me around, he was stationary the whole day. Usually asleep in his chair. I had to keep going over there to wake him up as his snoring was putting the other contestants off their game.

Cheers

Lots of fish caught

Mon, 2007-08-27 21:13

I think Tim has the numbers scratched on the back of the envelope I gave him. I had a look in my camera bag and I can't find it so I think Tim has it. Definately over 60 bream caught and would go close to 80 probably.

Some good signs of life in the river.

Nice video there andy. Very well put together. Was expecting a GT at the end but!!!!! Looks like you guys had a good day anyway. I'm a newbie here, how often do you put together these events. They seem like a great catlayst for our local fishing community.

That was our first Swan fish, but the NOR v SOR comp is spread over two events which we completed a few weeks ago. Hopefully we will get around to running a few more when the weather warms up a bit.

Fantastic job Andy. Great editing, really well put together (and a storyline as well). Better than half the crap I see on Foxtel. Nice fish Rickets. Bad luck with your big fish Kasey.
Any thoughts of another Fishwrecked Swanfish or Molefish, or something similar sometime soon chaps.
Tight lines Colin Hay
