Expectations of great fishing were dashed when bad weather forced cancellation of the event for Saturday 24th November. The weather improved somewhat on Sunday, but competitors still faced choppy, confused and unpleasant seas.
Secret Weight Snapper – Ross Moore (BMYS) Prize from Southern Sport Fishing and Shimano.
Most Species (4 species) – Eddie Zahra (BMYS) Prize from JM Gillies.
1st Heaviest Snapper (5.736 kgs) – Cameron McNaughton (BMYS) Prize from GME (an EPIRB).
2nd Heaviest Snapper (5.608 kgs) – Alby Thomas (BMYS) Prize from Southern Sport Fishing and Shimano.
1st Heaviest Ladies Snapper (3.257 kgs) Maddie Hyland (BMYS Junior) Prize from Southern Sport Fishing and Shimano.

Many thanks to our kindred clubs for attending – Wangaratta and District Sports Fishing Club, Knox Club Fishing Club, Orbost Fishing Club, Albury Wodonga Sportsfishing Club and Brighton Central Angling Club.
The BMYS Gala Fishing Competition is very proud to have the following sponsors – Southern Sportfishing, Shimano, Illusion Gas Log Fires, Blue Nautilus Marine, AJ Thomas Campervans, Club Marine, JV Marine, GME, J.M Gillies and Transport Safety Victoria.
We ask ALL competitors to support our sponsors when and where they can as without them, we would not have such a fantastic event.
Lots of great work completed by the Brendan Hocking (Fishing Director) and his Fishing Committee in organizing and successfully conducting the event.
Thanks also to Anthony Heyde, Club Manager and Club staff for their great support across a very busy and enjoyable weekend.
