Bemm River Boys Trip 2023

Real McCoy Fishing Tours. 6th May 2023

Real McCoy fishing tours kicked off its annual weekend of competition down in Bemm River, Victoria. It was a huge turnout this year with over 60 people with also members from Bemm River Angling Club attending a 3-day fishing competition in the lake, channel and surf beaches.
Fishers targeted salmon and tailor in the surf and Bream, tailor, flathead and some large Trevally in the lake. Soft plastics, prawn baits and trolling silver metal lures in the channel did the damage.
Surfing fish was firing this year with plenty of great fish caught off Pearl Point and the Entrance Bar Beach which is open.

The weather held up for the competition just, with the rain not stopping plenty of anglers late into day 2.

In the Heaviest Salmon category, Winner Andrew Jeffries landed a 2.79kg Australian Salmon from the surf with second to Andrew Vukovic’s 2.195kg and third to Jason Shaw at 1.77kg salmon with many more weighed in over the 1kg mark.

In the Heaviest Bream category, young Bailey Stamatis won the Bream trophy with a healthy 1.060kg Bream followed by Christian Ellul at 1.055kg and John McCoy at 0.905 kg. Great to see the young ones getting in on the action and having a good go.

A huge weekend fundraising also saw over $1800 raised for the Bemm River Angling club through raffles and auctions.

Bemm River Angling club would like to thank the following for donating prizes for this competition and helping this become and enjoyable weekend for all …
