Baptist Church Fishing Competition - March

Well it’s nice to see that some had better luck than I did for the fishing competition. At the weigh-in and BBQ last night there were some lovely fish weighed. With such poor weather it wasn’t surprising that the number of fish caught was a little low, but the quality was great. Dion Forman caught a lovely Grunter measuring (58.5cm). The fish was caught on a butterflied herring on a dropper and 2/0 wide gap hook. Fish came from some rubble patches near middle reef. Greg wasn’t too far behind with a slightly smaller Grunter. Greg fished wide of the beaches inside Cape Cleveland. Greg has an interesting story to tell about his boat ride home in the rough conditions! Jordan weighed in a nice Barra (4.8kg) caught below Aplin’s using a live Tarpon in a 7/0 wide gap hook. These wide gap hooks provide an excellent hook-up rate. If you have not tried them you, give one a go.

Apparently this Catfish is still swimming around with Dion's lip gripper!! LOL

Thanks to Dion for the photographs.
