Western Port Whiting Challenge 2018

Postby Whiskers » Fri Aug 11, 2017 9:41 pm

It looks like the annual Western Port Whiting Challenge 2018 may be the last.

The following is an extract from this months news letter from the Western Port Angling club.

"PRESIDENTS REPORT - Bob Wilkinson
Hello to all the Members,
As you all should know by now, The Whing Challenge last year only earned us $1000.00 Profit.
As this small profit was earned by the wonderful efforts of so very few club members, it has been decided
that the 2018 Challenge could be out last unless many more people come on board to help."

Looks like a very familiar scenario. 5% of the members doing 95% of the work.

Wish they had a swell shark or banjo or port jackson challenge. Id win that easily.

Cant say im too disappointed though. Lots of fishing club guys are flogs.
