The RSYC International Game Fishing Association president Leith Wilson said the tournament was a success given the wonderful weather and great turnout, “It was a fantastic ending to the season!” he said.
The Lilly-G, skippered by Patrick Todd won the overall competition including ‘biggest catch’ after angler Cameron Milican landed a 51.7kg yellow fin tuna.
Other catches of the day included a 15.8kg walu caught by Geoff Eden, and a 10.9kg wahoo by Dylan MacDonald.
