January 2017 Goblet Weekend

Posted on Jan 18, 2017


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.
