Fishing competition coming up

2016-04-20 06:00

HEADING out of summer and into autumn means exciting times for ski boat fishermen as it is around this time of the year that we get big couta along the South Coast.

The Winkle Fishing Ski Club hosts an annual competition which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Those who have competed in the previous Winkle club competitions know that this is one not to be missed because of its unique format (four fishermen per team fished over two days), excellent atmosphere among competitors, the array of prizes (total prize value in excess of R150 000) and it’s a great time of the year to be out on the water.

Anyone who wishes to fish, but does not have a full team to enter can either fish as an individual and be in line to win prizes for the biggest fish or various lucky draw prizes but will not be eligible for team prizes. Alternatively, you can put your names forward and the committee will put you in contact with other individuals also looking to form a team.

Non-fishermen are also welcome to join the festivities at the club where you will find hamburgers and wors rolls on sale. A portion of the funds raised in this competition goes to the Winklespruit Life Saving Club, which relies heavily on fund-raising to maintain its high standards. The competition will run this Saturday and Sunday.
