The June Goblet Fishing Competition target species is Bream and the competition was held of the weekend of June 16, 17 and 18. The weather during the weekend was excellent with calm seas, clear water and little wind. This meant that catching fish was hard and it was tough offshore, in the estuary and also off rock and beach.
Eight anglers took to the various waters and managed to catch and enter fish, others tried with little success. Overall there were fifty six fish entered. Those anglers who entered fish comprised of two ladies and six men.
The measure-in was held in very calm and warm weather in the downstairs BBQ area of the Tuross Head Country Club with approximately thirty members and guests in attendance. As usual a well prepared and tasty lunch was served and thanks go to the catering team and contributors.
The July Goblet competition will be held over the weekend of July 6, 7, 8 and the target species is Salmon so drag out your fighting fish rods and reels and have fun. The measure-in will again be at the Tuross Head Country Club venue and starting at 1300 hours (1 pm) on Sunday July 8.
