Tuross Fishing Club's monthly Goblet

Tuross Fishing Club's monthly Goblet competition was again rewarded with perfect weather for fishing. Friday afternoon fishing off Coila Beach was wonderful. Calm, balmy conditions were perfect for fishing. Good size Salmon were on the bit with a few Tailor as well.

Saturday was warm and ideal early for the lake and to venture out to sea before the wind became too strong. The Tuross river unfortunately did not fish as well as the weekend before for the Flathead and Bream Tournament which recorded a great number of fish, making it a very successful event. Members did record a few nice fish. Outside fishing seemed to be more plentiful

The Goblet for the month was won by David Backhouse who woke early to fish the Moruya breakwall and was rewarded with the winning Tailor 41.2cm worth 86 points.

Mens Lake and Estuary was won by Neil Alexander with a Whiting 39.6cm worth 94.64points.

Women's Lake and Estuary winner was Pam Alexander with a Flathead 44cm worth 53.52 points.

Mens Outside was won by Allan Backhouse with an excellent Nannygai 39cm worth 170 points.

Womens Outside winner was Rachel Weatherby catching a very good Flathead of 54.1cm worth 95.94 points.

Mens Rock and Beach was won by Neil Alexander with a personal best Salmon of 63cm worth 113.75 points.

Womens Rock and Beach winner was Rachel Weatherby with a Tailor 36.4cm worth 62 points.

No Junior prize was awarded. Mystery fish was no.16 Salmon 80cm was won by Neil Alexander.

41 fish were recorded for the weekend by 9 members and catching 14 different species of fish.

We did have a number of members absent on the weekend but the number of fish recorded was excellent with plenty of variety.

Next month's Goblet competition for members will be April 21st. to 23rd. Target fish will be DRUMMER. Measure In time will go back to 1pm on Sunday. Until then fish safe and don't forget to send me photos of your fish catch to be recorded.
