RMarine Mandurah 2018 Fishing Classic 3 February 2018 – report
Congratulations to the many winners! The event exceeded our expectations in terms of competitor numbers, bags submitted and sponsorship response. The range of species presented at weigh-in was also very impressive with only two of the fifteen nominated not being represented. There was a total of 122 fish, from 57 bags out of the 117 registered competitors.
There were 27 Dhufish weighed in, 6 of them weighing over 10 kgs. Four particularly outstanding fish were caught – a 16.825kg Dhufish by Darren Perkins; an 8. 95kg Pink Snapper by Ed Bradfield; a 5.105kg Baldchin Groper by Wayne Goodchild and an impressive 2.365kg Flathead by Matt Kennewell. These are some of the best fish seen around Mandurah for some time.
Congratulations to Champion Female Neryl Mundy, Champion Male Andrew Haines and Champion Junior (under the age of 14) Troy Barber. A special commendation to Troy who also won heaviest of two species; Bream as well as Whiting. The complete list of winners is below.
The door prize section of the presentations drew much interest, with the value of these ensuring that competitors remained to the end in the hope of picking up one of the great attractions. The generosity of the many sponsors for the RMarine Classic meant many competitors took home some fantastic prizes. What a great day.
