Angling veteran Bob Litster produced a blast from the past while Pat Keenan-Smith landed a 50cm king george whiting during the Club’s weekend angling competition on Saturday 14 January.

Postponed for a week because of winds, the competition attracted four boats, with three ladies competing and sBob Litster with his 0.23kg garfishhowing the men a thing or two.

Sue Keenan-Smith won the competition with a bag of king george whiting, herring and silver bream. Following a full moon, it wasn’t a great day but there were some highlights at the weigh-in.

Bob, the section’s field day coordinator, attracted the most interest with a beautiful gardie, almost a forgotten species for local anglers.

Bob’s wife Coralie, who has been keeping tabs on fish weigh-ins since 2010, said a gardie hadn’t been seen at the weigh-in during that time.

And it was a beauty, tipping the scales at 0.23kg.

Pat also took satisfaction with his king george, taken on squid, in a sand pocket between Mewstone and The Stragglers.

Aside from Sue and Coralie, Tania Sucur also took part in the day, along with Geoff Rosevear and Ray Wilson who landed four kg but little else.
