John Suthern Goblet Winner March
March is Tailor month for our Goblet competition and with Easter just around the corner Tuross Head Fishing Club Members over the last weekend put off buying Easter eggs and took to our beautiful waters in pursuit of the Goblet fish. There were 16 anglers comprising of seven ladies, eight men and one junior. Fishing conditions were reasonably good on the Saturday but Sunday was a little challenging as it was cool and windy but didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of our anglers.

Tammy Paul Lake & Estuary Winner
Suthern, Pam Alexander and Janine Campbell all measured in good size catches. Sophia Whitehead won the junior prize for her 36.5 Flathead, it is always great to see our junior members enjoying fishing and entering the Goblet competitions.
Turkey of the month was won by Pam Alexander who lost her hat overboard and had to fish for it to get it back we are reliably informed it was quite a funny sight. Mystery Fish was Kingfish which wasn’t won.
FLATHEAD & BREAM TOURNAMENT
The 12 – 13 March was our annual Flathead & Bream Tournament which saw 256 people fishing with a total of 404 recorded fish caught and released. 258 Flathead 107 Bream and 44 by catch. Largest flathead caught was a huge 94.6 and largest Bream 36.8, these entrants were ecstatic with here catches. It was a fabulous weekend with many people vowing to be back next year. We would like to thank our many local sponsors and our major sponsor Native Watercraft who helped to make it such a successful weekend.
