FISHING
 
There have been plenty of boats out on the water most days notwithstanding the wind speed, however I haven’t received much feed back regarding the success rate.  I’ve heard there are plenty of pannies in the river and we had an excellent day out wide last Saturday – probably the best for a few years.  There were at least three double hookups and unfortunately a number of marlin were dropped but never the less there were half a dozen or so marlin landed or tagged in our area which is pretty good this early in the season. Even better when you consider the seiners have done their best to rid the ocean of skippies in this region (it seems the saury have come to our rescue – I wonder where the big boys can find a market for them?)  An excellent forecast for the weekend and the Ladies Tournament will see plenty of boats on the water over the next couple of days so we expect the weighmasters to be kept fairly busy.
 
CONGRATULATIONS
 
To those that caught fish out wide last Saturday when there was a lot of action, even if they didn’t all stick.  We had a range of species weighed or tagged including striped marlin, blue marlin, short bill spearfish and mahimahi.
 
THANKS
 
FIRSTLY to the group of people that helped erect the 2 marquees in our carpark on a hot Wednesday afternoon.  Many hands make light work and they did an excellent job, really quickly.  Secondly to Mike Havard and Anne McQuillan who have supplied us with a new wire cable to replace the existing older one on the wharf crane.
 
LADIES  TOURNAMENT
 
With registration and briefing today and fishing tomorrow, we’re in for a busy weekend.  The ladies have done a great job organizing the event with a huge array of prizes.  There are a handful of spots left before we hit our maximum limit, so it’s almost certain it will be reached this morning with a very reasonable weather forecast for Saturday.-
