What a crazy few months we have had since we were last on here. It started with a busy start to the month of April with Easter being on the 1st weekend, our beautiful town of Beachport was full of families and tourists down for the holiday break. We also had our wonderful Beachport markets on the Easter Saturday which again we attended, having set up a stand on the street with our popular Deal or no Deal game. Also a very busy time in the shop for Abi and myself, felt like we were back in summer out the back bagging extra bait, doing ice deliveries, rigging up roads and getting organised for the markets of course.

In this time we also got hold a great new label which will be exclusive to Blupod At The Jetty . It’s called ONE ONE SEVEN and has some amazing pieces. It will be arriving in September. Very exciting !!! Along with our Seafolly bather order, which we just love, the pieces this year are beautiful, something for everyone. I think you’ll find that we have returned to our more unique -slightly off beat look that we enjoyed in Blu Pod Creative Artists.
Winter featured a new guys clothing label s. OXYGEN and DISSIDENT, which have both gone really well. Great jeans in navy or black, dress shirts, stylish jumpers and much more.

We then head  into the month of May and it was time for me to say goodbye to Blupod and Beachport for the six weeks. I was off to EUROPE :)I had the time of my life. It was just amazing so much to see, I could go on for days. So probably should stop there 🙂
In this time Abi was busy working at the shop with a little help from Emma and Chris. Abi had a busy June long weekend on her own with the shop full of people and lots on. There was also some re arranging and moving of furniture and when I returned in the middle of June the shop was looking fabulous. A big change’ the store had opened right up.

Back into the swing of things here was the local Beachport Rivoli Bay Lions comp Salmon fishing competition to coordinate. This year was the biggest year ever for registrations we had 127 competitors. The catches were good this year with 500 fish being weighed in at the Beachport Hotel. The results were as follows

Senior winners:
1st Simon Whennan         – 2.712 kg
2nd Danny Golding          – 2.357
3rd Tayte Weston             – 1.86

1st Lana Barlow                – 1.999
2nd Julie Golding            – 1.273

1st Ben Rasmussen          – 1.320
2nd Oliver Chadstone    – .995

Aggregate               65 fish weighed in              combined weight – 22.82kg

We also had a special guest for the evening LEE RAYNER who used to be on the program IFISH but now has his own show ADVENTURE BOUND on foxtel. He presented the prizes on the evening and also talked about his new show. The night was a great success. Lee enjoyed Beachport that much that later on in the year he wants to bring his crew down and do some filming.

Now that we have wrapped up the salmon competition and the school holidays are over it has quieten down, but still lots to do around the shop and working out all orders for summer.
It’s also that time of the year for us to get organised for our trip to Melbourne for the annual gift fairs that are 2 weeks away.


P.S Have had some great new fishing rods arrive in, along with the popular snyder glass rods 🙂
