Pilbara News - - Fishing - Bren­ton Car­tledge

A steady stream of trevally were on the bite for the Nickol Bay Sport­fish­ing Club Top­wa­ter Tour­na­ment, held late last month.

The rules were kept sim­ple with only one cat­e­gory to con­test — for the long­est trevally caught, mea­sured and re­leased on ei­ther a cast pop­per or stick bait.

With flat seas fore­cast and re­ports of great fish­ing lead­ing up to the week­end, nine boats and 18 an­glers signed up to com­pete.

The fish­ing was con­stant with re­ports com­ing in over the ra­dio all day of fish be­ing caught across the ar­chi­pel­ago.

The boys fish­ing on the boat Dirty Hooker re­ported that they had a hot morn­ing, land­ing more than 20 fish be­fore 9am.

The best fish from this ses­sion was a 115cm gi­ant trevally for Mike Brauers, which was the third-long­est fish for the day.

Trent Stan­ley, fish­ing with his wife on the boat Pure Ge­nius, landed a gi­ant trevally mea­sur­ing in at 120cm that came in sec­ond place.

He was beaten out for long­est trevally for the day by Bren­ton Car­tledge, aboard Pan­da­mo­nium, who caught a 122cm GT late into the run in tide.
