Hi Fishing Club members and other interested fishers. Some coming events for you

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.

July 2019 Goblet, Salmon

By |2019-07-23T17:12:31+10:00July 23rd, 2019|Categories: Fishing Club|

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.

Huskisson Weekend March 2019

By |2019-04-03T13:28:52+10:00April 3rd, 2019|Categories: Fishing Club|

About 20 Fishing Club members had a fun weekend in Huskisson 29-30 March. We were allocated into teams – ‘for life’ (!)

Team Black

Team Red

The locals got into the spirit of the event!

Each member was to record their first 10 fish caught – whatever species and size, rules were to be decided at the end of the day, no target species and any size could be a winner.

Dinner was expertly prepared

and enjoyed by all.

Then there were presentations of prizes for the winners – still no clue on how the rules worked, but Team Black came out on top.

Nice look Bruce, off the shoulder!
