    Re: a big well done to carpyken on winning kayak match

    I couldn't fish it, but popped down to make a donation to the lifeboat and see how it was going.

    I think 26 took part in the end so well worth the effort from stonefish for putting it together.

    At 10:30 the weather and sea was looking very nice indeed and I witnessed a seal chomping on a bass which would have probably won it 4th prize :laugh:

    Does anyone know how the rest of the fishing was ? Still pleanty of undersized schoolies about ?

    Well done ken, good work.
