This is a great family event and also one of the very few places with free camping but you will have to get there early as spaces limited.
Cheers

I know that there has been Green and Bronze caught there.

As far as carp - well they are everywhere

Come and say g'day then make my day and bring me a ship load of fish to weigh in.

Just remember - the judge's decision is final.  :youbeauty

Carp Eradication Competition

From now on it will have to be named 'Carp & Tilapia Eradication' or 'Noxious fish Eradication' ...... it looks as though Tilapia have really exploded in the dam since last year. Without trying, 75 Tilapia were brought back to the weigh in area for recording and dumping as well as  273 carp, almost double what was captured last year. Plenty of spangled perch, as well as a couple of bass, were also captured and released. Fishing conditions were pretty good also, a bit of breeze with the occasional gust ..... just ask Todd James of Mitre 10 Beaudesert ... his display Gazebo down on the water's edge got turned inside out. Profit for the day was around $3,500   .... all funds raised will be converted to bass or Mary River cod fingerlings for the dam. Although the number of competitors (140) was up on last year (123), funds raised for the day was around the same as last year with BBQ sales much the same as last year, the difference being raffle sale down by a couple of hundred dollars this year. For your info, quite a few carp were captured on lures, from the bank as well as vessel.

 

Results:-

Largest Carp - (adult) 4.83Kg Carl Thomas (jnr) 1.645Kg Darcy McMahon  (on Fly) 1.5Kg Trevor Elliot

Most carp - (adult) 32 Mal Flesser  (jnr) 4 Thomas Ferrar

Largest Tilapia - 1.73Kg Mary Brider

Most Tilapia - 22  Luke Haas

Lucky entry - Kayak from Adventure Outlet - Ken Adsett,  Crebra Farm Stay (thanks to Michael & Sally Undery) - Ashlee Hogg

 

Thanks to all those members/supporters who gave up their time to help organise & help out on the day, and especially those members who also provided sponsorship in the form of money, lures, goods and services. Get ready for the next one !
