Team Buck Wild has won cham­pion boat in King Bay Game Fish­ing Club’s 2017 King Brey Open last week­end.

Buck Wild (1009.4 points) won ahead of Fry­pan (921.8) and Black An­chors (916.8) to claim the $1000 prize.

The weigh-in out­side the Tam­brey Tav­ern proved a hit, with mem­bers of the public min­gling with an­glers to check out what had been reeled in from the wa­ters off Dampier this year.

KBGFC pres­i­dent Ian Lan­nary said 32 boats and 103 an­glers com­peted in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion.

“The weather def­i­nitely played the part and we were very im­pressed with the turnout from the public at the weigh-in,” he said.

“We have seen some great fish come in and es­pe­cially some ex­cel­lent catches by ju­niors.

“There have been a few more bot­tom fish species as far as red em­peror, coral trout and some im­pres­sive rankin cod this year.”

Lan­nary said the club was look­ing ahead to next year’s com­pe­ti­tion.
