###NOTE: THERE IS HOPE AHEAD. NO POSSIBILITY OF HOLDING OUR USUAL DINNER DANCE PRESENTATION IN OCTOBER, BUT WE DO PLAN TO HOLD OUR FIRST MONTHLY COMP OF THE 2021/22 TOURNAMENT STARTING ON FRIDAY 6TH NOVEMBER, WHEN REGIONAL TRAVEL SHOULD BE OPENED UP. WE WILL CONTINUE TO EXPLORE OPTIONS FOR SOME KIND OF PRESENTATION FOR THE 2020/21 TOURNAMENT FOR WHEN CONDITIONS ARE MORE AMENABLE. “I SEE A TRAIN A COMIN’, A COMIN’ ROUND THE BEND”. TOOT TOOT! SEE YOU SOON.
JUNE COMP REPORT
Our first comp of winter, and predictably cold and unwelcoming mornings, although it did warm up a bit later in the
day. The lake water temperature has plummeted accordingly, with some reports of ghost weed about. Biggest fish of the weekend was Steve Dovey’s 1.20kg Tailor, which was included in Steve’s first Open Lake victory. Well done Steve! Women’s Lake went to Deb Walton who fished off her pontoon and kept her feet dry. Sub-Junior Mackenzie Best now leads that section with her win in the June comp, and Sid Henderson snaffled 8 Duskies for 3.10 kg and the Lake60+ win. B&R specialist Ian Graham was the sole sandman so Ian was a winner. Gary Lorenz hit the Ulladulla Ocean both days with Leonard Astill on a rolling Saturday and Mark Albiez on a steadier Sunday, and was deserving of his Open Ocean win. In all, it was slow going, with Sid Henderson’s 8 Duskies the standout effort. Keep warm.
Remember this day – Saturday, 14th November 2020. And these numbers – 103.5 cms &
8.50kgs. This is the day that the mythical and magical ‘over a metre’ Lizard was officially caught, recorded, and released. Long-time LCFC member Nathan Best was off Killarney when he hooked the LCFC All-Time Biggest Lizard. With his son Harrison on the net and daughter Mackenzie assisting, the catch was expertly recorded with photos, video and club brag mat. Congratulations Team Best (good name). Now our club is up for the cost of a statue of Nathan outside the Community Hall. Only question is- brass, marble or stainless steel?
NB: Photos of fish can be sent by email, as attachments, to the President’s email address.
