2015 NSW Interclub – First weekend wrap up

(Scroll all the way to bottom for an action packed vid from Gunrunner from the Shootout!).

2015 NSW Interclub – at the half way mark

I’m not sure how many boats are competing (anyone?) but by my count (eek!) there were 104 marlin tags (and 2 spearfish!) recorded so far with the breakdown 79 black marlin, 20 striped marlin and 5 blue marlin.

In the individual point score (T&R), Broken Bay’s Vengence are ahead at the end of the second day’s fishing with 3 black marlin, 3 striped marlin and a hammerhead shark tag. Capt. George Trinklers’ (NPSGFC) team on Born Free are close behind with 6 marlin tags (5 blacks and 1 stripe) making a run on Day 2 adding 5 of those fish, when, George tells me that the Carpark finally started to fire.  While the inshore black marlin have gone a little quiet, both Born Free and Shelby caught 5 a piece on the Carpark on Sunday.

In the club race (T&R), Newcastle Port Stephens (Team 1) is ahead at the halfway mark, followed by Broken Bay Team 1 and Sydney GFC Team 2. Newcastle Port Stephens teams will be looking to return the Champion Club Award back to the host location club who, after 8 wins in a row, lost the crown to this same Sydney GFC team last year.

On the Capture side, the leading boat is Get Reel from Newcastle Port Stephens GFC with two 300kg+ makos! Public Enemy have weighed the heaviest shark thus far with a 373.5kg tiger.

Capture teams: Newcastle Port Stephens (Team 1) is ahead in a very tight race followed by Sydney GFC Team 1 and another Newcastle Port Stephens team (2).

Meanwhile the junior anglers (T&R) are also keeping the race between them very competitive.  Luke Ashman on Gloriana is ahead of Dylan Ale on Finatic on lineclass points, both with 3 marlin tags a piece with Spencer Hoye on Haulin is also just one fish behind.

2015 Lyndy Grieves Memorial Tournament

Yesterday was the Lyndy Grieves Memorial Ladies Day tournament.

18 marlin were tagged for the day (15 black marlin and 18 stripes).  Sheridan Purvis on Born Free had a hot run over lunchtime with four black marlin tags to give her the win from Amanda Bajada on Finfisn.
