Mighty Bonanza
  |  First Published: December 2013

The Mighty Bonanza was blessed with a near-perfect weekend. Both days were pleasurably fished with some of the best conditions experienced.

The number of Juniors were down a little and, possibly because of the prize format change, Seniors numbers were up. There were around 200 registered and most prizes found a home.

The winning Club this year was Tomakin, the first time since 1987. The fish were not excessively big but just about all species were brought to scale. Only three fish failed to show up; John dory, mulloway and gamefish.
