Anglers hooked on Easter competition

A HEFTY-SIZED bream wasn’t the only thing young Ruben Swan hooked this weekend.

The young Dennington angler also landed himself a new fishing rod after taking out the junior section of the annual Warrnambool Angling Club Easter fishing competition.

More than 100 people wet a line over the two-day competition, with fish caught in the Curdies, Hopkins and Merri rivers eligible for weigh-in.

Angling club spokesman Colin Hurford said 76 seniors and 44 juniors had entered. He said most of the fish seemed to have been caught in the Merri or Curdies rivers.

“It’s been a good weekend and the most important thing is we have raised a bit of money for the hospital,” he said.

Eight-year-old Ruben landed his 936-gram bream on Saturday night on the Hopkins River, only half-an-hour before his father Mick Bickers reeled in his 1.023kg bream, which took out the senior section.

Mr Bickers landed the fish just after 6pm, using crab meat as bait and earning a new flat-screen TV for his efforts.

As for what young Ruben likes about fishing, the answer is simple: “Catching them,” he said.
