Barra event reels in lots of in­ter­est

Pilbara News - - Sport - Re­becca Par­ish

More than 120 keen fish­er­men and women were out on the wa­ter last week­end, on the look­out for the big bar­ra­mundi.

Spon­sored by Auslec, Port Hed­land Game Fish­ing Club’s an­nual event, the Pil-Barra Com­pe­ti­tion ran Satur­day and Sun­day and had some de­cent con­di­tions for com­peti­tors.

The big­gest bar­ra­mundi was snagged by Max Maxwell at 96cm, while Jaden Tenni was named club cham­pion for an over­all catch length of 146.5cm.

Young com­peti­tors reeled in some de­cent salmon and man­grove Jack, but the barra was too slip­pery and none were caught by ju­niors.

The club is look­ing to­wards next year’s 25th an­nual Blue­wa­ter Clas­sic, which it hopes will be a big event.
