Stabicraft Trailer Boat



The terrible weather that caused this tournament to be postponed was well and truly behind us as all three days were fished in near perfect conditions. There were plenty of fish out there with ten marlin being caught and no-one had too much problem catching the in-shore species either with a total of 327 fish weighed for the whole tournament by the 284 anglers fishing off 104 boats. Unfortunately we didn’t catch a snapper big enough to take out the Snapper World Cup in this tournament but once again the excitement level soared when the Stabicraft boat package was won in the last ‘man’ standing competition by local resident Kim Newman.
