Nickol Bay Sport­fish­ing Club held its an­nual bream and man­grove jack com­pe­ti­tion in the creek sys­tems be­tween Mait­land and Hamp­ton Har­bour ear­lier this month.

The Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 4, event drew seven boats and 15 an­glers to en­joy the near glass-off weather and tar­get bream and man­grove jack on lures.

A lot of an­glers landed over their three-fish com­pe­ti­tion bag limit for jacks and a cou­ple also hit their limit for bream.

Wayne Brown took out the com­bined jack and bream cat­e­gory, fill­ing his three-fish limit for both species with a to­tal 197cm of fish.

Scott Guthrie snuck in by one cen­time­tre over Ralph Acker in the com­bined jack to­tal score with 37cm, 39cm and 41cm fish to­talling 117cm from a hot morn­ing ses­sion.

Brown’s name was called again for the com­bined bream sec­tion, af­ter he found a school of bream all 28cm long, to­talling 84cm.

The big­gest adult man­grove jack prize was taken by Toby Mason with a very re­spectable 43cm fish.

Big­gest adult bream was an­other prize to the Reef Dog team, with Kevin Dea­con sneak­ing in be­fore Brown on the count­back with a 28cm bream.

Ju­nior Jack To­cas from boat the Disco Prawn found a solid 46cm man­grove jack, and the cham­pion ju­nior bream ti­tle went to Brock Crowhurst with a nice 31cm catch.
