Last year we were blessed with mostly clear skies and light winds and had 110 anglers in the club rooms for briefing night – well up on the year before!
While no one managed to land a billfish, there was heaps of other species across the weigh station with solid 12kg albacore and decent wreckfish and measure and release kingfish and snapper.
