Small numbers catch big hauls

IT was not a big weigh-in for Club Jervis Bay Fishing Club members last week due to the strong wind warnings. 

BAG A SALMON: Wayne Smith, Jack Reminis and Mark Reminis show off some salmon samples from the last fish out.

Members had to either be out and back very early on Saturday or strategic about their positions on Sunday. 

Fortunately for some it was worth the effort. 

These conditions also meant that all categories of the competition were covered.  

The water temperature on the bay was still up there on Saturday, sitting around the low 20s, which meant the flathead were still on the bite. 

But the Basin had fallen to around 17 degrees Celsius. 

It may have been a small turnout with only five people weighing-in each day, however there were some standout catches made over the two days. 

Jason Smith did his usual attack on the Basin with a nice haul of snapper and bream.

Wayne and Sue Smith turned up with 17 tailor between them from the beach.

James and Elizabeth Beasley bagged out on flathead on the bay, and Mark and Jack Reminis got onto the salmon in the bay. 

There were no changes made to the biggest of species board and the only other species caught over the weekend was dusky flathead. 

Best overall catch was made by Jason with 12.47 kilograms, with Mark following on 11.35 kilograms. 

These two also paired up to take out the mystery pairs draw. 

Junior Jack Remimis won the junior voucher. 

Members are looking forward to a calm, sunny winter’s fish next month, the club’s final for the competition year.

The next general meeting is May 18.

Next fish out is June 7 and 8.

New members are welcome.
