The event will start at 1pm on February 6, and anglers are required to pull up their lines by 1pm on Sunday before the weigh-in and barbecue at lunch time.

Bad weather forced the club to hold its January competition a week later than planned, on January 24, when nine competitors took part on four boats.

They caught 10 species.

Guy Little reeled in the biggest catch – a 16.2kg eight bar cod. Paul Saunders won the competition with 62 points, followed by Little on 60 and Gamini Jayaweera on 54.

About 20 members of the club also recently joined the annual weekend away at Lake Navarino where they tried fresh water fishing.

Members meet at the Gumblossom Recreation Centre on Fridays from 6-9pm. New members are welcome. For more information, call 0439 094 000.
