"Inclement conditions", that's the phrase that was being repeated for the monthly comp of March. The swell was up and the wind was howling across any body of water bigger than a kids swimming pool.
We generally see lower numbers attend the weigh-ins when the weather is less than favorable but I commend those who braved the elements and enjoyed themselves. I pay tribute particularly to the Peard the family for getting out and having a go even if the fish weren't biting.
This month's junior monthly sponsored products was squid jigs. All our juniors are encouraged to catch their bait to go fishing with but squid are delicious too so there is the added bonus of providing a yummy meal for the table. A big thanks to Harry and Kim Bingley for this month's sponsorship and as always Anthony at Compleat Angler Batemans Bay for looking after the club month after month.
