G'day Rec Fishos. The Tomakin Fishing Club's monthly competition of May was supported with good numbers. Our Anglers and Spearos enjoyed sunny weather and were blessed with a good feed for the table.
The swell was starting to rise, the water clarity becoming murkier and the water temperature getting cooler. But this didn't affect the fishing. Proof was in the pudding with Hooch from the Malua Bay Fishing Club only two days before smashing their club's Mulloway record and his personal best of 20 kilograms. It was great to listen to Hooch's and many others shenanigans while pursuing their preferred recreational fishing.
This month's junior sponsor was Eurobodalla Tyre & Suspension Service, thanks Norm and Donna, we couldn't of done it without you. Of course I can't forget my brother from another mother, Anthony Stokman from Compleat Angler Batemans Bay. Without Stoky keeping the club in the back of his mind we wouldn't be where we are today.
