2016 Fishing Competition

Perfect fishing weather greeted 21 entrants in 6 boats on Sunday, 10th January. Chris Hall caught the biggest fish, a 3kg gummy, and was awarded the “Big Mug”. Ian Jeffries surprised everyone, including himself, winning both the heaviest King George Whiting and the best individual catch of 15 fish.

     The 11 Juniors performed well with Megan Sebire winning the Adrian Rutley (her Uncle) U18 trophy with a 1kg leather jacket, Sean Moloney catching 11 fish and winning the U13 prize and James Slaviero catching 5 fishing including the smallest “legal size” edible fish.

     Congratulations to all the winners and hopefully the fish start biting for those who missed out.   A special thanks to David Danne who launched and retrieved the boats as well as doing the weigh-ins and completing the tally sheets. Thanks also to Sue Rutley for organizing snacks for the Presentation.
