Melbourne Rivers Fishing Competition
  |  First Published: October 2016



Another trip for members to ‘Melbourne Rivers’ was held last Sunday. Members could fish any of the rivers that lead into Port Phillip Bay. Ten members attended and once again fished Werribee River.

Weather conditions were better than last time, with cool temperatures early and sunny conditions once daylight arrived. Unfortunately for those who fished this trip, only two bream were brought back to the scales for a total weight of 1330g. Norm Bull caught the bigger fish, weighed in at 760g. Terry Quirk’s fish weighed in at 570g.

Angling clubs are great for anyone who enjoys fishing. Being a member is beneficial for ongoing fishing tips, learning from others, and also mateship and socialising. On this trip, we saw one of our members during the morning had ‘no spark’ left in his motor. With the support of two older members, he was towed back to the boat ramp. Everyone on his boat was safely brought back to land.
