2006/2007 State Boat Angling Championships.
The AAA State Boat Championships were run on Saturday the 24th March 2007, sponsored by Club Marine and All Boats and Caravans.
The competition was run with a reasonable fishing day as far as the weather goes.
The 1st Mullaloo Sea Scouts provided the heart starters for the day, by having tea and coffee with Bacon and Egg burgers at the boat ramp, and those that had either thick heads from "preparing" for the day and having pre-comp drinks the night before certainly welcomed the food.
The forecast of 15 to 20 knot Easterly winds came in at the start of the comp and assisted those who fish for the smaller species, to pull up close to shore and catch a number of herring and whiting, although all fairly small and all bar the one of each specie were released.
At around 8.30am to 9.30am most boats ventured out into the deeper water and started catching other targeted fish.
The Easterly created an uncomfortable fishing platform and we all had to work hard for the fish that was caught.
The Radio was relatively quiet which normally indicates that the fishing was slow.
A few good fish were caught in deeper water, but as indicated it was difficult work, at about 11.00am the weather became calmer and boats zipped around to all their favourite spots catching a varied range of species.
At the closing time for the Bags (4.30pm) most boats had either got their boats on their trailers or were waiting to.
The weigh in was held at the Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club. The weigh in commenced at 5.30pm, in the weigh in area at the club, great venue and all were able to see the weighing in of the different species.
The MC for the weigh in was Andy Cass (AAA Boating Sub Committee Chairman) from the ORSSC and provided a running commentary, with a great deal of good humour and light hearted banter.
The weigh in went well with a good band of volunteers; again we would be lost without those assisting on the day, you little juniors for running the score cards thank you, we need you guys to get up there and give us "oldies" a run for our money at these comps.
The ORSSC provided refreshments and an evening meal for all, I'm sure all that had partaken in the meals and refreshments enjoyed the evening
Maurie Ramsay (the Field Day Officer for the day from ORSSC), with his skipper Adrian Broadbent, set up the presentation area and it looked magnificent, the juniors had their mouths open in awe at the tackle packs.
The presentation was MC'd by our effervescent ORSSC member in Terry Bell, and with the banter as always between "rival" clubs, made for an excellent evening.
Attached are the results of the first 3 in each event, a comprehensive report will be sent to all participating clubs.
There were both team and individual events and these were divided into four divisions:- Open, Ladies, Veterans (over 55 years)
and Juniors (12 to 16 years) and so caters for participation by all the family.
The scoring for the championship encouraged people to catch a range of species of fish. Points were awarded based on the number
of eligible species weighed plus four points per kilogram of total bag weight. Each entrant was allowed to weigh in only ONE
fish of each nominated species. The points for species increased as more species were entered.
Clubs nominated teams in each class prior to the start of Championship. Mens teams could have a maximum of seven people,
while Ladies teams, Veterans teams, and Juniors teams could have a maximum of four people.
For Mens team scoring, the best six results were counted, with the seventh result not included in the score. For Ladies,
Veterans and Juniors team scoring, the best three results were counted, with the fourth result not included in the score.
The individual and team points from this event go towards an overall individual and club championship over all four divisions
run by AAAWA, Beach & Rock Angling, Boat Angling, Estuary Angling and Dry Casting.
