Hi Fishing Club members and other interested fishers. Some coming events for you
August is the end of the club year. Following the August Goblet measure-in (Aug 18, 2019, 1:00 pm) the club will be holding its Annual General Meeting. The AGM will commence once the Goblet proceedings cease and will be held in the THCC downstairs outside area. Any members wishing to stand for a committee position should make their intentions known.
The club has booked Eden’s Quarantine Bay Cabins for a fishing away weekend. The dates will be Friday night November 18 (2019) and Saturday night November 19 (2019). Liaise with Jeanie Dixon 04138 388 584 for further information.
The annual Presentation will be held at the THCC inside downstairs area on a date to be announced in November. It is envisaged that the meal will be catered for by outside person allowing all members to enjoy an evening without having to prepare, serve and clean up after a meal.
A 2019-2020 calendar of events is currently being prepared and will be available soon.
July 2019 Monthly ‘Goblet’ Fishing Competition was held over the weekend just gone. Each month a species of fish is selected to be the target species. In July the target species was Salmon
Five anglers took to the waters and caught fish. Others went fishing but had little luck. One angler told me there was plenty of small bait fish around and he observed several bust ups but had no bites. The successful anglers comprised of one lady, and three men and a junior. It was a glorious sunny and virtually windless weekend. A total of thirty one fish were caught and presented for the ‘measure-in.
Each month we use a random generator to select a Mystery Fish and a size. This month it was number two which produced Blackfish with a size of 40.5 cm. Should several anglers catch the months mystery then the closest to the stated size wins. No anglers caught a Blackfish so the prize jackpots.

This coming weekend July 19-20-21 is the Goblet competition weekend.
The Goblet fish is Salmon and they are running at the moment.
Fishing may begin from 4.00pm Friday and the finish time and measure-in is at 1.00pm Sunday at the downstairs outside area at the Tuross Head Country Club.

Visitors are always very welcome.
The Fishing Club committee meetings are normally held in the Tuross Head Country Club on the first Tuesday at 7pm after the monthly Goblet fishing competition. Fishing club members who are not committee are welcome to attend and contribute.
Please Note – June 2019 Committee Meeting. Due to the number of Committee members who are away and well as the number of committee who are suffering from colds and flu the decision to postpone the committee meeting that was due to be held Jun 18, 2019 until Sunday morning June 23 and will now be held at the Big 4 Wallaga Holiday Park, 186 Wallaga Lake Road.
A great opportunity to mix and mingle and perhaps to have a go at golf or bowls if you haven’t tried already.
Only $5.00 per person includes lunch.
Contact details are on the flier.
