Catches have been reasonable lately, in spite of the winds, with reports from members of bream, flathead and cod being landed inside, plus plentiful whiting reported for those keen enough to rise early and get onto their favourite spots before the sun is up.
Catches of Tailor have been also reported along the beaches at Inskip and Fraser and a few being caught on the inside, just south of The Bluff.
The Club’s Annual Awards Presentation Day and Christmas Party was held at the Cooloola Coast Bowls Club on Saturday November 17 and all 75 attendees had a great lunch and very enjoyable afternoon social.
The winners of the 23 various sections, hotly contested in some cases, were all rewarded with trophies as mementos of their efforts.
Our special thanks for their ongoing support and attendance goes to Mayor Mick Curran and his wife Sue, plus Councillor Mark McDonald.
