Leigh Martin Marine Mercury Classic
  |  First Published: December 2013



Perfect sunny conditions with no wind greeted the 439 keen anglers who entered the 10th Anniversary of the Leigh Martin Marine Mercury Classic on Lake Hume.

The fishing on the Saturday proved to be a little tough, but some excellent catches were recorded on Sunday. A total of 152 yellowbelly were registered, with some big fish up around the 8kg plus mark. Also 455 redfin, 25 trout and 89 carp were presented to the weigh stations over the course of the weekend.

There were 439 registered entrants, and everyone who attended had the usual good time.

The committee and helpers would like to thank all the sponsors and entrants for making this year’s event a great success. Next year the event will be on the weekend of October 25-26, and the location will be announced soon. - HC
