Stabicraft Trailer Boat Tournament 2018

Stabicraft Trailer Boat Tournament 2018

by Mar 10, 2018Tournament Results

A less than favourable weather forecast prior to the tournament saw the number of entries slightly down on last year but although the last day was definitely one for inshore fishing, boats were able to fish every day. We had marlin caught on the first two days and some big snapper on the last two – plenty of excitement for the 267 anglers involved. Of course the Stabicraft 1550 boat that was given away was a big draw card and congratulations goes to Dean Cook, a club member in a team that has been fishing our tournaments for 20 years now. Some fantastic support from the key sponsors ensured another huge prize pool for this tournament. The club’s thanks and appreciation goes to all sponsors involved.
