Win­ning in the deep end

Talk of the Town - - Sport - LE­BO­GANG TLOU

MAS­TERY of the sea was tested this past week­end when the Diaz Deep Sea An­gling Club hosted the Deep Sea Masters event in Ken­ton-on-Sea.

“They fished river on Thurs­day, rock and surf on Fri­day and a rather churned up with large swell deep sea on Satur­day,” Ken­ton tourism con­sul­tant Este Franz said.

“Rain stayed away for most of the event.”

The Hill­bil­lies came in first place, fol­lowed by the Fowl Hook­ers at sec­ond place, and the Young Guns came in at third, com­plet­ing the list of top three win­ners for the event.

The event saw 12 teams bat­tle it out – with 28 com­pet­i­tive an­glers in to­tal vy­ing for glory.

Ul­ti­mately, Shane Bur­dette was recog­nised as the top an­gler at the event. In ad­di­tion to float­ing tro­phies be­ing awarded to par­tic­i­pants, there was a lucky draw of a week­end away from Huntshoek Sa­faris and a raf­fle prize of a wheel­bar­row full of al­co­hol from Rose­hill Su­perS­par.

“A great time was had by all with live mu­sic on Fri­day and Satur­day night,” Franz said. “Many thanks to the spon­sors: Load Mass Cranes, Buco Ken­ton-on-Sea, Huntshoek Sa­faris, Rose­hill Su­perS­par.”
