Winners Jake Atkins and Ashley Dew 


Saturday the 12th of November was a big day for thirteen children, although it was a cold and misty start the sun did make an appearance lifting the mist for us. The children were divided up between three boats "Blue Fin" skippered by Chas Haase. "Growler" skippered by Ian Bennett, and winning boat "Sheikharra" skippered by Peter Kimber.  The Competitors were fishing for a new fishing rod and reel.  They fished for two hours, and the total catch  between the three boats was very good with 32 fish caught,  Dog Fish and Whiting. The children on "Sheikharra" caught 18 fish between them, the children on "Growler" caught 8, and the children on "Blue Fin" caught 6.    Jake Atkins caught the most fish which won him a fishing rod,  Ashley Dew came in second which won him a reel. A big thank you to skippers Peter, Chas and Ian also crew Steve Smitten for giving up their time to make this event possible.  A great time was had by all.
