West Coast Land Based Fishing Competition Results

 Apoligies for the late post but I have had computer problems and too much work.

The latest competition was held last weekend from 4pm Saturday until 8am Sunday morning from north of Two Rocks to Ledge Point . Weed was a  problem all along the coast with the weed in the shore break a particular problem 

until the wind dropped around 2am, which provided better conditions for those who fished through the night.

Ten Anglers fished the competition and a range of fish were caught including Tailor, Eagle Rays, Common Black Rays, Bronze Whaler, Shovelnose  and a Leopard Shark.

The rresults were as follows

First Place     Matt J                     115  points 

Second         Steve Herbert           81.2 points

Third            Vincent Stacey          72.4 points


Matt had an impressive haul in trying conditions that included three Eagle Rays and two Shovelnose Sharks , Sherbie caught 10 fish in total . The overall tally of fish submitted for the competition was 32 which was a great result for bad conditions. 


PS  I let Sherbie come second because I had the sense to get in my swag for 6 hours.
