###NOTE: THE NEXT COMP DUE TO START ON FRIDAY 2nd JULY, 2021 HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO COVID
TRAVELLING RESTRICTIONS WHICH MAKE THE COMP INACCESSIBLE TO SOME COMPETITORS. FOR THE SAME REASON, SUSPENSION OF COMPETITION ALSO APPLIES TO BEAT THE BOARD ENTRIES, UNTIL FREE TRAVEL IS POSSIBLE.
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.
