Blue Fin Boats and Rotary would like to thank all the competitors in the 2007 Hinze Dam Classic for making it a very enjoyable weekend.
The weather was perfect and the fishing was much improved on previous years. Everything ran well besides a temporary computer glitch that threw out our results and caused some confusion at the prize ceremony. We apologise to those affected, particularly Gary and Amanda O’Bryan who were convincing winners in the bait section. To clarify matters the results are listed below.
The prize for the largest bass went to Thomas Howell who caught a very healthy 48cm fish from the shore. Congratulations to all and let’s hope we can see you all at the competition next year – subject to the raising of the dam wall and the limitations that will present.
