Approximately 110 children entered the Fishing at the Wharf competition. The competitors, their siblings, parents and grandparents enjoyed a fantastic morning. The children were provided with sustenance to keep up their fishing energy, by way of sausages, fizzy drinks, fruit and ice creams.

All kids received a flasher rig to take home and were in the draw for spot prizes, all from a total prize pool of about $2000.
