BARREL BUSTERS COMP
With any luck, we might just see if the weather gods shine on us for the 2 day Barrel Busters comp. I do say that with a bit of tongue in cheek after a quick glimpse at the weather forecast !
Prizes will be for the most meritorious SB Tuna and for the Highest pointscore Tag and Release.
weigh in is 4pm both days with prizes awarded at the Sunday weigh in
There is a bbq on the Saturday following the weigh in, and in the event that we are not able to get out on the big blue, it would be good to have a catch up at the bbq for a drink and a chat.
looking forward to seeing as many there as can make it !
Our July Monthly Comp was defeated again by huge seas on a stiff offshore breeze.
Who knows, one day the fishing gods might reward us with a nice day to actually get out there amonst it !
The next club event is the Barrel Busters Comp on August 18.
With good numbers of big fish being caught at Port Fairy and Portland, it must be our turn very soon. The weather has kept us from being out there too much to see if they have turned up but the charter boats are still seeing some school size tuna.
Weigh in is at 4pm at the clubrooms with a bbq to follow.
Looking forward to seeing as many boats and anglers on the water as possible.
Pakula Lures 4.KG Tuna Shootout Comp
Father ans son team John and Richard Hateley took out the prizes in the Pakula Lures 4KG tuna shoot out.
The weather was great wind wise and most of the day was fished in milk pond conditions, once you got outside the 4m sea that was running inside ! With the sea a bit bigger than most liked we only saw a handful of boats contest for the prizes. Nearly all the boats boated fish to 10kg and Belly and Hoody had their hair blown back as Sparksy opened the throttles on his new beast which has from all good reports, has SCARY amounts of take off ability from a standing start and 40knot cruising speeds !
A huge thank you to tournament sponsor Peter Pakula at PAKULA LURES. The club thanks Peter and Jo for their ongoing support of the club.
The 2018 Tuna Comp has been run and won. A huge thanks to all our sponsors and supporters that make the event possible. thank you to all the anglers that travelled from away, even with a not so nice weather forcast. That being said, we saw some excellent captures and of course the usual wallies should there true form in entertaining us with there misadventures.
winners are posted below for viewing.
tuna comp pics will be posted shortly
not so many anal fin nominations this month but dont be afraid to email your nominations to email@example.com
Anal fin nominations
Might have had the daily double Sam but maybe the old man needs to take a tape measure fishing with him. So the first nomination for the anal fin award goes to Mark Whan for a slightly over length trace on a 31kg record breaking fish !!!!!!!
Speaking of anal fin nominations ! A notable grumpy skipper sends his long time deck hand of up the pontoon to fetch the tow vehicle and trailer. 30 minutes pass and still no trailer on the ramp. The skipper thinks ‘ i better go check whats going on’ !
‘The key dosn’t work in the door’ was the comment from the before mentioned crew member ! hmmmmmmm
Try using the correct key next time ‘DINGO’ Pratt ! or at least don’t keep trying the wrong one for half an hour !
Our third nomination, YES there are three in the first month ! goes to a guy that has been in the club for some 25+ years, and no ‘Ian Johnson”, a mullet is not a species !!!!!!!!!!!
The eye in the sky is always watching ! lol If you feel the need to nominate or dob in a dill, you can email the stories through at firstname.lastname@example.org
