Last weekend Oct 29-30 saw the running of the much anticipated 2011 Xstrata Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic. Good weather insipired many local anglers to compete and the organisers were kept very busy for the whole event. Personally I was dealt a cruel wrist injury only one week before the event eliminating my fishing chances. Even still there was heaps of entertainment and a few celebrity anglers to make it an enjoyable couple of days. A steady procession of fish made it to the recording station throughout the event. The variety was most striking: barramundi, sooty grunter, sleepy cod, catfish and long tom all weighed in. Nine barras were recorded from 76cm-111cm- all carefully released. The weekend was a pretty good learning experience hearing everyone's different insights and theories. I am putting together a more comprehensive wrap of the event in December Fish and Boat, so make sure you get a copy. Oh, and don't forget November while you're at it!
