Cotteral reels in top prize with golden catch
Competitive fishing returned to Karratha with the Nickol Bay Sportfishing Club hosting the topwater tournament last Satur- day. Anglers picked up mackerel and coral trout while targeting big trevally on lures in the catch-and-release competition.
Mark Cotteral won the day with his 112cm golden trevally, taking home the prize pack from West Coast Poppers. Dean Lucas was just 1cm off in second place with a 111cm goldspot trevally, with Ryan Turner’s 107cm specimen rounding out the top three.
Some 22 anglers aboard eight boats took part in the tournament.
