Bermagui Blue Balls winter swimmers

INSPIRED by the Numnut's Narooma breakwater swim, the Bermagui Blue Balls ventured from Blue Pools to Moreheads Beach last Sunday.

Twelve brave swimmers entered the 19 degree water wading out making more of a wave than the Pacific Ocean could muster.

Rounding the northern breakwater the incoming tide was surprisingly a few degrees warmer bringing with it a huge spectrum of sea life.

Those swimmers with goggles raved about garfish, bream, blackfish, flathead and baitfish.

All eyes were out for the resident 2m wide bull ray that feeds off scraps from passing fishing boats.

The colder water brings even more varieties of fish so coming weeks look to be very stimulating before our traditional Bundy nip, chilli soup and schooner at Dave's Bermi Pub.

Bermagui Gelati scoop of the week went to Robert Johnson who is bulking up for the colder weather ahead.

Bring your togs, courage and sense of humour every Sunday at 9am at the Blue Pools.
