Big fish­ing week­end

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

What a great re­sponse for this year’s Hor­sham Fish­ing Com­pe­ti­tion. It is won­der­ful to see all the pegs along the river­bank from beyond Hor­sham Show­ground all the way to Hor­sham Weir.

It will be fas­ci­nat­ing to see how well an­glers go in the an­nual event. We ex­pect plenty of yel­low­belly to fea­ture among the best fish.

For the record, there have been some nice fish caught in the show­ground area, but you just never know where the big one is lurk­ing.

Fish­ing form is mixed across the re­gion, al­though the sus­pi­cion is that there are plenty of an­glers out there do­ing well.

Lake War­took in the Grampians has been a lit­tle slow but is likely to pick up soon, and Rock­lands Reser­voir is go­ing well with redfin tak­ing a lik­ing to worms.

Yab­bies are still go­ing quite strongly at Lake Toolondo south of Hor­sham and the lake’s trout and redfin are hit­ting lures.

Word is that at Lake Fyans near Stawell, redfin are also find­ing lures tempt­ing while trout are go­ing on mud­eye.

Stawell and Dis­trict An­gling Club con­tin­ues to be busy with its next points run com­pe­ti­tion at Port­land this week­end. The con­test will start at 7am on Satur­day and fin­ish at noon, Mon­day. Weigh-in is at the park op­po­site the hos­pi­tal at 12.15pm.

Hor­sham An­gling Club’s next com­pe­ti­tion is a Mur­ray River event from mid­night, March 17 to 1pm, March 19. Reg­is­tra­tion is from 5pm on March 15 at Hor­sham an­gling clu­b­rooms.

The win­ner of a $50 voucher from Web­b­con Ma­rine for Fe­bru­ary for their fish­ing pho­to­graph was Jake Water­field.

Best of luck to ev­ery­one in the Hor­sham Fish­ing Com­pe­ti­tion.

It’s not ev­ery day some­one drop­ping a line gets a chance to drive away with a new car or boat­ing pack­age.
