Chas’ success at Chapel Point

CHAPEL Beach Angling Club held its latest match on Sunday, August 5.

The match was fished to the right of Chapel Point between 6.45am and 11.45am.

The day started with a bright blue sky and a slight breeze, and the sea was flat calm.

Nine anglers turned out for this early morning match but unfortunately not many fish were on the scene.

Other than one flat fish, the only things caught were weever fish which were in abundance.

These fish can be dangerous as they are prone to sting you. If you do get stung by one seek medical attention immediately.

The winner of the match was club member Chas Tibble, who is also a SPAC club member. He won the match with a catch of one flattie and 11 weever fish, which gave him a bag weight of 12.5 oz.

Chas also took the prize money for the biggest round fish and also won his round of the club’s knockout, taking him through to the semi-final round.

In second place with his catch of 10 weevers was Paul Marshall.

In third place came Alan Steadman from SPAC with four weevers.

Alan also got stung by one of his weevers, fortunately it only caught him and was not a serious sting.

The club would like to thank you to everyone who attended.

Please remember to keep the beaches clean and tidy and take your rubbish home with you.

The next match is on Saturday, August 18 at Wolla Bank between 5pm and 9pm.
