It was Culburra Amateur Fishing Club's turn to host Greenwell Point Fishing Club in our interclub competition on March 2-3. The weather early on Saturday gave us a bit of a storm then cleared to a fair day on the water. Sunday was a nice day to fish. We had 27 people weigh in for Culburra and 25 for Greenwell Point. Culburra had 3 juniors, 13 for deep sea and 11 for BRE, weighing a total of 177 fish.
Well done to Theo Smolenaers who weighed in the largest fish, a bonito at 1.49kg, and Scott Danvers, who weighed in the most fish totalling 15.
Culburra won the trophy back from Greenwell Point 871.62 to 678.5 points.
