ON March 15 and 16 the MacArthur Districts Fishing club hosted the Heads Hotel Fishing Club for the annual Top Ten Shoot Out.
The weather was great all weekend with the wind getting up on Sunday morning, but not strong enough to stop the anglers getting some nice fish.
Some fuel problems on Friday for Tony Mclean saw the boys up late Friday night draining fuel tanks and replacing seals so to be able to hit the water on Saturday.
Saturday evening saw the MacArthur boys cook up a great barbecue dinner and some drinks were shared over some fishing stories of the day’s efforts.
Presentation was on Sunday in the beer garden overlooking the Shoalhaven River, with the MacArthur fishos taking out the competition and retaining the shield for another year.
MacArthur beat the Heads fishos 38 kilograms to 28.5 kilograms to take a 3-1 lead.
March 29 and 30 saw the Heads Hotel Fishos host the Greenwell Point Fishos for the annual Top Ten Shoot Out competition.
Greenwell Point had a fantastic roll up with 30 entrants to the Heads’ disappointing nine.
The way the Top Ten works is the Heads nine total bag weights are put against the Greenwell Point nine heaviest bag weights.
Greenwell Point took the trophy home this time with a total of 32.61 kilograms to the Heads Hotel’s 24.65 kilograms.
The weigh-in was at 1pm on the Sunday followed by a spit roast lunch which was prepared by Peter Risco and the Heads Hotel Resturant.
Two vouchers were handed out as lucky number prizes and both went to Greenwell Point.
