It was a story of the young bull and the old bull at the Angling Section’s January 13th weekend competition, which had been pushed back because of strong winds the previous weekend.
This time, the old bull won out, by the barest possible margin.
Bob Litster, the heart and soul of the section, along with wife Coralie, claimed his first victory of the season with a total of 47.6 points.
Young Marcus Sucur is no stranger to success in the competitions and had a mixed catch included a lovely king George, attracting 46.5 points. Nevertheless he couldn’t rein in Bob, who has been consistent in the four comps this season.
Bob doesn’t talk readily about his locations but he won the comp with a collection of his usual fare – sand whiting, herring and king george – and collected $100 towards his house support scheme.
Premium red wine was on the menu for the Litsters that night because Coralie’s decent sized squid took out the mystery fish prize, $100.
