As well as driving Clean Up Australia Day in Tin Can Bay, the club is hosting the Sunfish Junior Fishing Day at Norman Point, Tin Can Bay on Saturday April 8.
This is a free opportunity for juniors from 7-15 years to learn fishing techniques from three qualified Sunfish Level 1 instructors. There will be prizes, refreshments and a free BBQ for participants following the event. Numbers are limited and registering for this event is essential.
Our guest speaker at our recent General Meeting was Matthew Albiez, District Officer with Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol. Matthew gave a very comprehensive and informative presentation to all members on a wide range of topics and issues.
Items discussed were the need for EPIRB registration every two years and to check and ensure the EPIRB battery is in good working order. Other subjects included checking the condition of life jackets, ensuring that flares are current, and the opportunity to download the new Fisheries App at no cost.
The junior winner of the Mini Fishing Competition was Josh Lucas who caught a nice whiting, and senior winner was Marquis Chapman who caught a 3kg Saratoga in the Mary River at Gympie.
Club members look forward to joining the Wondai Fishing Club on March 12-14 for a few days social, camping and fishing at Boondooma Dam.
