Jacks, trevally on the bite
After the large falls of rain from low-pressure systems in the past two weeks, the fishing scene has been rather quiet for some, yet hot for others.
Mangrove jacks have been on the bite in the creeks and marina, and a few youngsters have organised a competition to catch them.
It is on March 4 and 5, with lines in from 8am-5pm each day.
This is a capture-and-release competition, with photos on a brag mat as proof of capture.
Pictures are to be brought to the Exmouth Game Fishing Club clubhouse from 5pm-7pm on the Saturday and 6pm-7pm on the Sunday.
The cost is $10 for seniors and $5 for juniors.
Enter at EGFC on Friday, March 3 from 6pm-7pm or phone Will Roche on 0475 067 217.
The EGFC held its annual awards night recently.
Winners can be found on the Facebook and web pages of the club.
