2015 Port Stephens Family Fishing Competition Results

Perfect weather conditions over the weekend saw nearly 150 entries in the 2015 Inaugural Port Stephens Family Fishing Competition, sponsored by Soldiers Point Marina, Pantaenius Sail and Motor Yacht Insurance and Ibis Styles Salamander Shores. 

With the senior and junior winners grabbing Shimano rods, reels and hats for catching the heaviest of each of the 10 species, $10,000 in cash prizes was also given away with the lucky person hooking the major $5000 cash prize without even catching a fish.

Lucky door prizes of three nights’ accommodation at the Flagship Golf Villa at Horizons Golf Resort sponsored by the marina and a large esky donated by Tooheys were also taken away.

Junior fisherman Harry Bailey scooped the pool by catching the heaviest fish in 5 categories... an outstanding effort.

Big thanks also to BCF at Taylors Beach, and Duffy's Bait and Tackle for donating lots of prizes for the junior fishers.

Same time next year......

Testimonial

On behalf of the Soldiers Point Rural Fire Brigade, I would like to thank you for your kind donation of a berth for our Fire Boat.

As a relatively new addition to our brigade, the boat represents a significant investment by Lower Hunter RFS and as such we take our marine responsibilities seriously. Of course, a boat is only as good as its access to the Port Stephens waterways and by allowing us to berth the fire boat at your marina, we are in a fine position to be deployed at short notice.

Once again, I thank you for your generous contribution to the Rural Fire Service and in particular, to our brigade.

Neville Klein, Captain Soldiers Point Rural Fire Brigade
