Good weather greets fish­ers for event

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

MEM­BERS of the Bin­ningup Fish­ing Club were treated to near per­fect weather on Good Fri­day for their mem­bers-only fish­ing com­pe­ti­tion, with the club’s com­modore Ken Up­ton de­scrib­ing the con­di­tions as “ab­so­lutely per­fect”.

“Not a lot of fish caught but the con­di­tions were good,” Mr Up­ton said. “It was a good Easter break with a lot of beach fish­ers be­tween Pre­ston Beach and Bun­bury.”

As a mem­bers-only com­pe­ti­tion the fam­ily of club mem­bers could en­ter, with many mem­ber’s chil­dren tak­ing part in the event, which had beach and boat fish­ing di­vi­sions.

Mr Up­ton said fish­ers had caught good num­bers of pink snap­per and dhu­fish in the boat fish­ing divi­sion, and whit­ing and her­ring in the beach fish­ing divi­sion.

“Many peo­ple were look­ing for salmon but it seems that they have not reached our area yet.”

Trent De­scroizilles and Jordy Kim­ber­ley show off their catch.

Rob Huxtable holds a dhu­fish he caught in the boat fish­ing di­vi­sion.
