The Berry Fishing Club held its annual presentation day and junior eel catching event recently. There was great excitement along the creek bank behind the Berry Bowling Club as young Harvey Purnell pulled in a huge eel but unfortunately it dropped back in after biting off the hook. The shield winner for 2016 was Grace Vassallo.
The presentation day went well with members receiving their annual awards. Kayle Rattenbury won the Juniors in the South Coast Estuary section and was in the winning team with K. Buchan, Heath Warnake and Mick Ziebell.
In the February outing the juniors were led by Kayle Rattenbury catching a flathead weighing 2.030 off the beach followed by Bailey Masters, Isabella Vassallo, Gracie Vassallo, Riley Masters, Zanda Masters, Edie Goodger, Alice Goodger and Beth Goodger catching the bass. Junior Bailey Masters weighed a .580 whiting to win fish of the month. Darren Vassallo won the beach and Eli Miles the estuary. Mick Ziebell won Deep Sea.
