Ideal con­di­tions for Ike Stol Me­mo­rial

Broome Advertiser - - SPORT - Sara Hen­nessy

Last Thurs­day Derby an­glers gear­ing them­selves up for the Ike Stol me­mo­rial fish­ing com­pe­ti­tion had the wind blown up them quite lit­er­ally as Derby was sub­jected to 80km/h-plus winds which blan­keted the town with marsh dust, re­duc­ing vis­i­bil­ity down to just me­tres at times.

Con­ver­sa­tion was in­tense at com­pe­ti­tion regis­tra­tion with many an­glers chang­ing fish­ing plans, not trust­ing the for­ward weather re­port of calm con­di­tions.

This made for a fab­u­lous week­end with an­glers spread from the Cut­tings, to mud holes, Dam Creek and In­land Sea. The weather ended up be­ing ideal and ev­ery­one ex­pe­ri­enced sen­sa­tional fish­ing with laughs and good times top­ping off a great comp.

Joshua Cog­gins took out Cham­pion Nip­per and Alessio Caval­laro cham­pion ju­nior, fishthe ing up in the In­land Sea area while Dam Creek did not dis­ap­point with Kris­ten Camp­bell tak­ing out cham­pion fe­male and Ja­son Tompsett com­plet­ing a tri­fecta to claim cham­pion male for third time. Many thanks to the Stol clan who trav­elled from as far away as Bun­bury to be a part of the event and re­mind us of the im­por­tance of the three Fs, Fam­ily, Friends and Fish­ing!
