King of the Rip 2015

 

The 5th round of the ANSA Victoria State Championship was run over the March 28th-29th weekend.  The weather was great but the fishing was tough, which could be attributed to the drop in water temperature.  We still had some good captures of which the stand outs were Gummy Sharks, Elephant Fish, Trevally and some large Leatherjackets. We had 68 anglers from seven clubs compete and all had a good time, it was great to see anglers from Western Beach Fishing Club competing in their first convention.  And the convention venue ?  just see below, it was fantastic.
