With Christmas and holidays just around the corner many fishing club members are sending Santa their wish lists for new fishing rods, lures and even boats, others were getting their Christmas shopping done but 20 anglers still managed to find time to get out to their favorite fishing spots in pursue of the last Goblet fish for 2015.
John Suthern won the goblet with his 25.4cm Garfish, congratulations John.
Gavin Robinson took out the men’s outside with a 48.2cm mowong and Rod Federer men’s inside with 59.5cm salmon.
We had four ladies, 12 men and 4 juniors compete with a total of 50 fish caught and measured in including a winning good sized bream at 30.5cm caught by junior Mathilda Brennan. Great catch Mathilda.
Most of the weekend saw great fishing weather but Sunday afternoon the wind came up making it a little cool but as it was the last Goblet weekend for the year it didn’t stop our enthusiastic Fishing Club members enjoying the Christmas BBQ held at the Tuross Head Country Club where Santa and his elves popped in to hand out presents to some very excited juniors thanks Santa. The Fishing Club Catering Officer Janine Campbell provided an awesome meal with Lamb on the spit that was enjoyed by 50 plus Fishing Club members.
It seems turkeys are not only good to eat at Christmas time as there was some good turkey stories this month like our President Neil Alexander losing his son’s rod from the back of the boat, I think Neil has been mentioned in turkey stories several times in the last couple of months, getting to be a bit of a habit Neil!
Then the one where John McNeill fell overboard and of course his phone was in his pocket and not water proof model but the award for this month went to Linda Saberton who at the annual presentation night with 50’s dress theme lost her 50’s style petticoats while on her way to collect her award, Linda didn’t miss a beat just hitch them up and kept walking!
