Posted by on 3:57 pm in fishing reports | Comments Off on June Goblet Competition 2017

June 2017 Goblet BREAM   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.

The May Goblet Competition Results

Posted by on 7:00 pm in fishing reports | Comments Off on The May Goblet Competition Results

May was Snapper month. It was also Mother's Day which may have contributed to a low attendance at the measure-in where only twenty six people attended. Ten Anglers who took to the water submitted forty four fish for judging in the competition. Of these, there were three ladies, six men and one junior. Nine Snapper were caught and so competition for the Goblet species was intense !!! The winners and grinners are announced below. Overall, fishing was very slow and hard work over the goblet weekend. There were members out fishing in each of our three categories, however, estuary fishing proved frustrating with no fish of a legal size photographed and entered or submitted for judging. On that note - photographing of fish. Since we do catch and release many of our fish and also photograph them on the brag mats, can we also get your fishing buddy to take a photo of you holding your fish. Send this photo to the current publicity officer (Mike) at byron@hwy.com.au . The goblet fishing results are submitted to local newsprint and their editors prefer to see people holding fish as against people smiling and holding a prize envelope. Just for interest - A fish first tagged in Tuross Lake by Blake Paul in December twenty fifteen has been recaptured in the same lake. The fish was a Mulloway with  a length of sixty two centimetres and when caught again in January this year it  grown to a length of sixty seven centimetres.  That is four hundred and fourteen days between initial  tagging and the most recent recapture. There is no further information on the most recent angler with this fish. It is hoped all the mothers in the fishing club had a wonderful Mothers Day.   RESULTS: Goblet:                       Janet Sinclair              Snapper                   45.5cm                               64.44 points   MENS Outside                      Peter Dugan               Morwong                 52cm                                  103.25 points Lake and Estuary            There were no fish entered for this category Rock & Beach           Merv Roberts           Blackfish               35cm                                    64.80 points LADIES Outside                      Janet Sinclair              Mowong               50.5cm                                 98.27 points Lake and Estuary          There were no fish entered for this category Rock & Beach           Tammy paul                Salmon              62cm                                      58.57 points   Junior                         Blake Paul                   Tailor              39.5cm                                       49.00 points   Turkey                    Janet Sinclair for accidentally walking into a closed security door and receiving facial injuries.

April 2017 Goblet Report.

Posted by on 5:58 pm in fishing reports | Comments Off on April 2017 Goblet Report.

With only two weeks between the March and April goblets and the Easter weekend looming only seven anglers measured-in fish. All were male. No females or juniors had fish to measure-in. The goblet fish was Drummer which is a new fish for the Goblet competitions and a fish that are not commonly sought. Also, due to heavy seas offshore, there were no Outside fish entered. Over the weekend a total of eighteen fish were caught and entered as a fish in the goblet competition and only one of these fish was a Drummer. Results Goblet (Drummer) Tim Kovacs            Drummer                           35.5cm            42.22 points   Mens Outside        No fish in this category were entered Lake and Estuary Ben Alexander                    Bream                   37.0 cm      78.00 points Rock and Beach Bruce  Kennedy                 Bream                   37.2 cm        78.80 points                 Ladies  Outside                                No fish entered Lake and Estuary           No fish entered Rock and Beach              No fish entered Junior                               No fish entered. The mystery fish drawn from the barrel was number twenty nine which was Trevally. There was no Trevally entered so the mystery fish prize jackpots. The Turkey of the month award The turkey award went to Scott Paul for running into a clothes line pole that he had finished erecting and as a result gaining himself a very red and swollen eye.   Scott Paul Competition Secretary  Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new...

March Goblet 2017

Posted by on 4:05 pm in fishing reports | Comments Off on March Goblet 2017

The Goblet was Tailor Only five anglers measured in fish. This was probably understandable given a very very busy month which encompassed the Flathead and Bream Tournament (with all its setup, administration,meals and the final pull down) followed closely with a club weekend away at Wallaga Lake.  Wallaga Lake was a wet weekend in which the members fished regardless and quite a few contracted colds as a result. A big thank you from all the attending members to Max Castle and the crew at the wonderful Wallaga Lake tourist park for a great weekend. The measure-in was held on the deck of the Tuross Boatshed and Cafe in nice sunny and warm weather. Approximately twenty members attended. RESULTS Goblet: Tailor             John Suthern              52 cm 74 points MENS Outside                      Rodney Federer          Snapper          44.0 cm 61.11  points Lake and Estuary      John Suthern              Tailor               52.0 cm 74.00  points Rock & Beach           Tim Kovacs                 Salmon            68.5 cm 85.00 points LADIES Outside                      not awarded Lake and Estuary      not awarded Rock & Beach           not awarded Junior             not awarded Turkey……  John Suthern - Poor John. A series of unfortunate incidents befell him over the Wallage weekend. The batteries on his boat went flat and the engine could not be started as a result requiring a tow back the caravan park. His phone suffered water damage and ceased to function. As a result the awarding of the "Turkey of the month" was unanimous. However,  the Mystery fish (no.21) was also won by John Suthern during the course of the march goblet measure-in.Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new...

February Goblet

Posted by on 11:54 am in fishing reports | Comments Off on February Goblet

February is the month where Garfish are most prolific so Garfish was the target (Goblet) species for the month. Over the weekend of February 11 and 12, sixteen angler members competed for either the target species or other species hoping for a club record. The weekend competition was unusually quiet with many members away for various reasons, however, we had five ladies, eleven men with no juniors entering. In total, sixty-four fish were caught, measured, photographed on a measuring mat and mostly released to be caught again another day. This is sustainable competition fishing at its best. The lack of juniors entered was frustrating as our club is keen on teaching fishing to the next generations and having them generally outside and away from the digital screens. Come on kids, its great fun. RESULTS: The Goblet was won by Neil Alexander who caught and kept for dinner, a very nice table sized garfish Goblet: Neil Alexander Garfish 70.50 points 28.1 cm MENS Outside Rod Federer Kingfish 174.43 points 115.5 cm Lake and Estuary Peter Dugan Whiting 86.96 points 40.1 cm Rock & Beach Merv Roberts Blackfish 69.15 points 36 cm Merv also won the Turkey of the month prize, which is an award for doing something that ends up being foolish. In Merv's case it was won because he misread the measure-in time and arrived with a prize-winning fish just as everyone was packing up to go home. LADIES Outside Janet Sinclair Morwong 109.92 points 54cm Lake and Estuary Janet Sinclair Garfish 60.00 points 28cm Rock & Beach There no ladies entering fish for this category. Junior There were no juniors entering fish for this category The next Goblet fishing event will be held over the weekend of March 25/26 and the measure-in will be held at the Tuross Boatshed and Cafe starting at 4.00 pm. The target species is the very feisty and sporting Tailor species.Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new...

January 2017 Goblet Weekend

Posted by on 1:34 pm in fishing reports | Comments Off on January 2017 Goblet Weekend

January is the month where Whiting is the Goblet species. It is also the time of the year when Whiting are most abundant. As usual, Whiting was not the only species that could be entered for the tournament and as a result there were a total of fifty seven fish entered. Of these fifty seven entered fish, there were twenty one Whiting, fourteen Bream, eight Blackfish, eight Dusky Flathead, six Sand Flathead and one  Tailor. Husband and wife team of Neil and Pam Alexander fishing for the goblet fish on the same boat provided a very close contest Pam catching a nice whiting at 42.5 cm and then Neil went one better by landing a 44cm monster which took out the goblet and new club record for Whiting. During the measure-in proceeding the Mystery fish was drawn with number eight coming out and was Flounder. There were no Flounder entered so the prize was not won and will jackpot for the next Goblet weekend which is in February and the goblet species will be Garfish.   RESULTS:   Goblet: Whiting           Neil Alexander                                    44 cm                      103 points   MENS Outside                      Alex Henderson          Sand Flathead 50 cm                     75.95 points     Lake and Estuary      Neil Alexander            Whiting            44 cm                  103 points   Rock & Beach           N/A   LADIES Outside                      Rachael Kennedy      Sand Flathead    37.5cm                   42.16 points   Lake and Estuary      Pam Alexander           Whitting           42.5cm            97.39 points Rock & Beach           N/A       Junior                         Lucas brown               Whitting            39.7cm                    85.22 points Turkey…… Gavin Robinson was awarded the Turkey of the month after being towed to the boat ramp by the Tuross Marine Rescue following an engine start failure whilst on more secluded areas of the lake.

October 2016 Fishing Club Report.

Posted by on 10:59 am in fishing reports | Comments Off on October 2016 Fishing Club Report.

What a busy and fruitful month October has been. The month started with the National Fishing Day which attracted a larger than expected number of registrants, both adults and children alike. There were lots of prizes won, the attendees were taught basic fishing techniques, knot tying. There was casting competitions, jumping castles, food and even fairy floss. It was funded by the government and is to be become an annual event. Next was the goblet weekend and the goblet fish was trout. An "away" weekend was organised in the wonderful Crackenback resort with many members attending. It was a weekend of contrasts, snowing heavily one minute and sunshine the next. Warm clothes were the go and trout were actually caught. It wasn't as easy to catch a trout as everyone hoped any member members were not successfully walking away with a trout score but the compensation was the camaraderie, food, drinks and exercise. For those who didn't travel to Crackenback, a fishing competition was also held in Tuross which had a handful of fish recorded and a much smaller number of people attending the Barbecue. Overall, the goblet fish (a trout) was caught and the goblet winner was Tim Kovacks who managed to edge out John Suthern with a centimetre longer fish than John's. On another note - The NSW Minister for Lands and Water, Niall Blair MLC has recognised Tuross as a centre of excellence for trophy fish and the Department of Primary Industries has produced a colourful booklet promoting Tuross as a "hot spot" Sample copies of this booklet have arrive and shortly copies will be made freely available. There is a new roster being developed for speakers and raffle ticket sellers for the Wednesday Night Fisho's raffle night. It will be out shortly. Now for the big news, Tickets are on sale for the presentation night. It is going to be a fabulous night with a smart casual beach theme. Due to Country club regulations, no thongs or bare feet please. There is a multitude of prizes and fun to be had. It is an earlier start than normal at 5.30 on Nov 12. Here is the details as its entry by ticket only : Presentation2016 Early in 2017 the fishing club is in the planning stages for a weekend away in cabins on the fabulous Lake wallaga. Contact Jeanie Dixon or Max Castle showing your interest. It will be a club subsidised event. Been a busy month alright ! Mike Byron Publicity Officer.
