Casting a line for anglers

Weigh-in: The prize for the heaviest two-day aggregate bag is a 50cm long (actual size) King George whiting painted by Western Port artist Bridgit Thomas.

THE weather is looking good for next weekend’s Western Port Angling Club annual whiting challenge.

The 2-3 March event – the club’s 30th – is expected to attract up to 300 competitors because of the many whiting being caught in the bay. Categories are senior male, senior female, teens and under-10s.

Fishing identity Paul Worsteling is offering $1000 for the first 1.0 kilogram whiting weighed during the challenge. Broadcaster David Kramer will present prizes from 4pm, Sunday 3 March, at the angling club’s rooms next to the Hastings public boat ramp.

Entries close 2pm Saturday 2 March.
