THE annual westerly winds added a touch of seasonal reality during the first piscatorial weekend outing which treats club members to their personal hobby.

The weekend 12-14 May 2017 proved to be very popular amongst members and their guests for the start of the new angling season.

The mystery fish drawn was a traglin and no traglin were weighed during the weekend outing, compounding the mystery fish prize until next outing.

A great family effort was conveyed from the Wheaton family.

Mother and daughter won their divisions and dad was a major contender in his division as well and produced the new season current biggest species, a bream.

The winning angler for the junior division was Daisy Wheaton catching flathead, a whiting and a bream.

Making mum happy on Mother’s Day, but not to be outdone, the ladies angling division winner was Donna Wheaton with a great catch of bream.

The ladies’ angling division running up winner was Gail Bartlett.

The men’s division runner up angler for the first of the club’s season was Robert Bartlett with a great swag of species including tarwhine, groper, flathead, tailor and bream.

The weekend’s angling champion and men’s division winner was Andrew Sharp who won the first of the current season’s fishing outing with a great catch of tailor, bream and flathead.

One flathead is a new biggest species for the current season.

The first season’s angling outings ultimately produced six new biggest species, being groper, bonito, tailor, flathead, whiting and bream.

Great Angling.
