2017 Weekend Update & Prize Winners

Numbers were the same as last year despite the weather and the forecast of significant rainfall with everyone who attended having a great time. There was a total of 13 barramundi weighed in during the weekend ranging in size from about 60cm to the longest of 74cm. It is also one of the highest numbers of barramundi weighed in during our fishing competition in quite a number of years. The biggest Australian Bass weighed in during the weekend was a 55cm long and weighed in at 2.222kg even though the number weighed in was slightly lower this year. As per previous years the large numbers of catfish & jewfish weighed in that put smiles on many junior angler faces. Overall it was a great weekend had by all, with many lucky draws, raffles and prizes given away. M.A.S.A would like to take this opportunity again to thank all our sponsors, donors, participants and volunteers for another successful fishing classic as without them our competition would not be what it is today.
