Preston Northcote Angling Club (PNAC) had a St Kilda Snapper competition on Sunday 19/11/17. As the designated start time was agreed to be 3.30am and a weigh-in time of 1pm the 8 competitors were in for a long day.
The weather conditions were perfect for a snapper comp on Port Phillip Bay. All anglers were on their spot before daybreak and expectations were high. There were a huge number of boats scattered all along the shipping channel with various groups around specific transit lane markers.
At the weigh-in 5 anglers weighed in 6 snapper for a total weight of 17.32kg. Tony Nicolosi landed the heaviest fish @ 4.3kg, just nudging out Niki Dukstein’s fish of 4.25kg. Alf Breci was next with 2 fish totalling 4.21kg.
A good day was had by all and St Kilda was abuzz @ 1pm with lots of boats and people enjoying a perfect Melbourne day.
