Tuross Fishing Club February Goblet Fishing Report

Finally the weather gods were in our favour. The weekend provided perfect conditions for fishing which members took advantage of. Members took to the water with their burly and dough mix bait and the Garfish provided some great entertainment. Having fish schooling around the boat and watching the Garfish attack your bait was fun and some new fishing terms were learnt from frustration when you were unable to hook up these finicky fish. But crumbed and fried they tasted so good.

February Goblet winner was Scott Westbury catching a very impressive Garfish of 27.7cm


Mens Lake and Estuary was won by Scott Westbury with his Garfish of 27.7cm worth 127.66pts.

Womens Lake and Estuary winner was Rachel Weatherby with a Garfish 25.5cm worth 110.75pts.

Mens Rock and Beach was won by Neil Alexander with a Whiting 37cm worth 81.3pts.Womens Rock and Beach was not won.

Mens Outside was won by Mathew Roberts with an excellent Snapper 54cm worth 109.92pts.

Womens Outside winner was Jeanie Dixon catching a Pigfish 41cm worth 106.16pts.

Junior division was won by Christopher Westbury with a nice Garfish 27.1 cm worth 123.05pts.

Turkey of the Month was awarded to Merv Roberts for his retrieval of a good Bream from the rocks by use of his crab spear. Whilst getting a little wet from the waves and not slipping on the rocks. What one does to catch a fish.

For the weekend I recorded 68 fish by 14 Fishing Club members and 14 species of fish were caught.

Only three weeks left until the Flathead and Bream Competition, numbers are looking good and we looking forward to another successful Competition.

Next Tuross Fishing Club Goblet weekend will be held on March 17th - 19th Goblet fish is TAILOR.

Regards Neil Alexander

Competition Secretary.
