TCB Fishing Club News November 2022

TCBFC - Club members at Sails Bar & Bistro at Tin Can Bay Yacht Club

Club members at Sails Bar & Bistro at Tin Can Bay Yacht Club

Our local club competition for September 2022 turned up a great variety of species with mackerel, sweetlip, queenfish, bream, bass (freshwater), flathead, tailor, whiting, snapper, and tuskies.

The competition was taken out by Tim Mitchell with a nice 80cm snapper.

Club member Marquis Chapman is worthy of a special mention as he has been giving the bass in the Mary River a run for their money, catching a personal best 51cm fish recently, and on one outing he landed 9 fish in total.

For those of you who want to have a go at fishing the Mary River, Marquis suggests trying any (or all) of these lures – 50mm Atomic popper, TT jig spinner, or a Squidgies Dura Stretch 80mm paddle tai.

Now just a bit of a shout out to Life Members Jim and Debbie George who for the first time in close to 10 years are stepping back from involvement in the management committee of the Club.

At our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 19 October a new Committee was elected consisting of a mix of new and existing Committee members, and as mentioned Jim and Debbie did not nominate for a role, stepping back to have a bit more personal time with family.

Jim and Debbie have been actively involved in the running of the Club for around 10 years and have been the mainstay of our fundraising efforts during that time, and to a large degree are the reason why we have such well set up club rooms.

Jim and Debbie – THANK YOU!

Alan Rippon, President
