WINTER FISHING COMPETITION
On Sunday 8th September we held our final Winter Fishing Competition for the year. It was sponsored by Surfcoast Gardening and Mowing, Rob and Kerry.
The weather wasn’t kind so everyone had to fish off the shore or the pier because no boats could get out.
Thanks to our regular stalwarts it was another successful day.
As usual after the presentations everyone tucked into a beautiful mixed grill and salad washed down by a couple of cold ones.
We had 14 competitors with 5 fish weighed in.
The way our comps work is that anglers only gets to weigh one fish each which they have to choose before it’s weighed.
Each species earns a different amount of points calculated on eating quality and average size for that particular species.
Land based caught fish earn more points than boat caught fish.
The Winner was David Manfreda with a good size Salmon = 2515 points.
Runner Up was Ian Middleton (the salmon king) with you guessed it a salmon = 1960 points.
Third was our reigning club champ Andrew Clarke with a nice Trevally = 1830 points.
The final results for our 2019 BENDIGO BANK WINTER CUP are:
Winner: Ian Middleton.
Runner Up: Andrew Clarke.
Third: Paul Staley.
An honourable mention to David Manfreda who came a very close fourth.
Both David and Ian don’t have a boat so they do all their fishing off the shore which is a sensational effort.
Our club house and barbecue area is available to members for parties, weddings, funerals, just about anything. Please book with our manager Hutch or email the Commodore in advance confirm.
