June 17th Comp Results - Kalbarri


A great weather day for the comp meant boats went far and wide, but a very cold night up river for the riveries and land based guys. This month’s sponsor is the Gorges Café down by the Post Office end of town.

Club sponsor this month was the Gorges Cafe; Thanks for the great vouchers, Jess and Romely.

The river is now well and truly settling down with good fish all the way up river, but of the 10 junior anglers only Amy Stewart managed to land a fish. Her .464kg live bream was tagged and returned for double points and won her the junior river section. Di Stewart’s 4 live bream and Gary Ivey’s 1 were not enough to beat Cheryl Eley who had 5 fish, 4 bream and a nice 3.27kg mulloway taken from Peter Dugan’s secret spot! Unfortunately Peter could not catch a fish at his secret spot and was fishless for the comp.

The Land Based Section was fished by the Tarasek brothers and Tristan Neumann again with day member Mick Horstman. Mick had 5 fish for a total weight of 5.4kg but was surprised as everyone else was by Tristan Neumann’s 7.25kg mulloway; Daniel Tarasek’s 3 fish which included a 4.75kg mulloway, and winning the section was Simon Tarasek who had 3 fish but including a monster 4.85kg baldchin groper and a 6.85kg shark.

Most boats went a long way and found the fishing a bit slow. Day member Matt Aldridge and mates fished out of Mzilikazi Roller around the Sand Patch and beyond picking up 3 fish one being the biggest to date coral trout of 2.6kgs. Laurie and Sue Malton went south to Wagoe for a try for mackerel only to find later that they should have gone north where the mackerel were. They ended up with their bag of skippy with Sue picking up a little coral trout to make it worthwhile. Ross Olsen was out with Koot Myburgh trying out his new boat, a 7.2m Caribbean, and christened it very well, catching 5 fish of 2 species, but the day went to Koot Myburg who showed us a 6 fish of 3 species among them two snapper weighing in at 8.25ks and 6.15kgs. His red emperor also made a show.

Paul Maindok with Peter Dooley‘s day out went well for skipper Paul aboard his boat Santa Barbara who caught 4 snapper to 1 for Peter to win his section in the over 7.5m boats.

The $50.00 Anzac award went to Simon Tarasek for his big baldchin from the rocks, while Gary Ivey won the $50.00 worth of scratchies raffle, the restaurant voucher went to Gary Ivey as well and the Mystery fish went to the biggest bream: Cheryl Eley. Laurie Malton won “Mug of the Day” while fishing with new soft plastics. With a big school of skippy under the boat he dropped a soft plastic bait over the side getting numerous hook-ups but with the hook pulling each time, only to discover later that the little plastic hook shield was still covering the hook.
