2020 10kg Tournament Report

May 31, 2020Event Results, Newsletter

6am Saturday 30th to text measure-in by 4pm Sunday 31st May
(Queens Birthday wkend).

You know the story with the 10kg, anything less than 25knots is a bonus. Saturday it was good to be alive. Sunday was just a matter of staying alive.
Not even a global pandemic thrown in for good measure could prevent the 10kg from rolling. THANK YOU to the 59 anglers that joined us for this long-running event. Seems a bit strange not having our traditional prizegiving, meal, and catch up— but the rules around gatherings changed the day before the comp! The quality of fish was up this year. Keeping the average sized fish for food and releasing the biggies means this quality could be easier to maintain.

Ladies Only Fishing Event 2019 37 Ladies fishing compared to 57 last year – a forecast for frequent rain and 25 knots gusting 30 will do that. The weather wasn’t hot, but the fishing WAS! Crews caught and released good sized snapper until they couldn’t do it anymore....
