Tea Gardens Country Club Fishing Club
THE annual Gibber to Gibber Fishing competition took place on the beach between Hawks Nest Golf Club and the Big Gibber on 19–21 May.
It was hotly contested by our three local clubs: Bulahdelah FC, Hawks Nest GC SC and Tea Gardens CC FC (hosts).
The forecast was for nasty weather, however after Friday night, we couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather.
Plenty of fishers on the beach all weekend, varied success by all clubs.
Quite an assortment of fish were weighed-in: bream, flathead, whiting, drummer (secret fish), tailor and salmon.
The competition came to a conclusion on Sunday morning at Mungo Brush Rotunda with the weigh-in, competitors and families barbeque and raffles.
All who attended had a great time and there were heaps of “Fishy” stories told.
The winners were Bill Thrift-TGCCFC Individual & Men’s winner. Sue Stewart-Dempsey-TGCCFC Ladies winner, Melissa Smith-Bulahdelah FC Ladies runner-up, Daisy Wheaton-HNGCSC Sub Jnr winner, Saxon Rapley-HNGCSC Sub Jnr runner-up and Secret fish won by Jamie-HNGCSC, which was the one and only drummer weighed-in.
This competition was closely contested by all clubs and Tea Gardens Country Club Fishing Club were the winners, Hawks Nest 2nd & Bulahdelah 3rd, for 2017.
Looking forward to next year’s comp, to be hosted by HNGCSC.
