Moreton Bay Overview
Moreton Bay Fishing Classic 2010 Results
Little Ship Club - Stradbroke Island
This year was to have an even stronger family focus and the new juniors section was hotly contested. The juniors really stepped up and landed fish a lot of seniors would have been happy to have caught. Dominic Bahr took out the flathead, Kelsey Smith took out the bream, and Luke Mottley had the winning whiting. Congratulations!
Once again all fish categories were hard to win with 1kg+ whiting, 2kg+ bream, 8kg sweetlip, 21kg jew and 33kg cobia hitting the scales. Some of these fish could take out almost any fishing competition in the country and it is a credit to the quality of the fisher men and women competing in this comp. These results came on weather that on face value was good, but challenging depending on your fishing style. A rising swell made nights on the beach interesting while westerlies made conditions a little lumpy for those wanting to go wide. While these conditions meant numbers were down on the average, the quality was there for those willing to put in the big ones.
A fairly popular choice for classic catch was a stunning 21kg Mulloway that had a few mesmerized anglers sweating profusely with jew fever. This is the sort of fish you cant keep in a tank and
among the several trophy fish competing for the top honour this great fish was probably the one most people would have loved to have caught themselves.
