conditions were absolutely stunning with a working 1.8m sea swell, blue skies, light westerly wind
and an air temperature hitting the high twenties. 71 anglers made the trip out and although nothing
Big was caught, a few decent species were caught. Heaviest Edible went to ever reliable member

Steenbras of 3.3kg with third going to visitor Shane Whittington with a 2.7kg Pignose Grunter.

Ichthyology & Fisheries Science department as a marine research ambassador on which we pride
ourselves greatly. We would also like to convey a huge thank you to our major sponsors PENN, Buco,
