Fishing

Twin Rivers Fishing Club Wellington held their last in house competition at the dam for 2018 on the weekend just gone and once again some good size fish were caught.

Unlike last competition the wind was a bit more forgiving through the day which made it easier for the boats to get around.

Results are as follows:

  • Biggest Yellow Belly - Jared measuring a healthy 605.
  • Biggest Catfish – Bugsy 525.
  • Biggest Redfin – Bugsy 330.
  • Biggest Carp – Abra 630.

Thanks to everyone that made the effort to get out.

The next in house competition is at Ponto which is also the club’s Christmas party on December 1, but this competition does not go towards the yearly tally.

At the Christmas party on Sunday the trophies will be awarded for our Grand Champion, biggest cod and yellow belly for the year. 

The club will hold its monthly meeting today, Wednesday, November 15 at the Cow and Calf starting at 7pm.
