The Annual Surf Fishing Classic was held on Sunday 30th Dec on the 90 Mile Beach at Loch Sport. This was presented as a family day out with relaxed guidelines - the intention was for everyone to have a fun day on the beach & they certainly did. There were five sections. (1) Largest fish (any species) (2) largest flathead (3) largest salmon (4) "Best effort" & (5) "Most memorable fish", the last two being decided by the LSFA President on the day. Largest was defined as longest. Surf cast fishing only (no drones, etc).
Allan (Hack) McIntosh spent a few hours outside recently & came home with a nice bag of good sized flathead - the secret bait was fresh salmon fillets drifted slowly on the breeze.
Recently we commented on the reports coming in of bag limits of KG whiting being caught between Metung & Nungurner – the good news now is that we can say the same for several parts of Lake Victoria where many of our members have enjoyed some excellent catches of this iconic species. This is clearly evidence of the tangible resurgence in the diversity & abundance of fish in the lakes system since the commercial netters ceased operations on April 1st 2020.
On the last weekend in November we saw a big turn out for the second Annual LSFA President's Cup at Port Welshpool. The fishing was spectacular with many prize fish caught & the socialising around the spit roast dinner was enjoyed by all. The Cup this year went to Kelvin Sim for this monster snapper...nice fish that!
