Blog from Tyler Drake, Social Secretary and Publicist Officer Newcastle Neptunes Hope Everyone has been getting stuck in to the Summer season and getting out there. It is that time of year again with the NSW competition calendar well underway. Once again the Newcastle Neptunes is proud to announce the 55th Annual Australian Pacific Coast Championships held over the Easter long weekend of 18th, 19th and 20th of April 2014.
The competition is to be held in the waters off lovely Port Stephens, NSW. There is a huge selection of prizes with major sponsors ADRENO Spearfishing providing us with major prizes for competition competitors, however there will be a lucky door draw also.
Local fishing of late has been really good, plenty of Marlin, Kingfish, M0lloway and Cobia action off the islands and a bit wider, water has been up and down like the rest of the coast but vis averaging 10m in most areas, plenty enough for diving here. Last year’s competitions was a great success with plenty of both large and exotic fish weighed in, check out Adreno’s blog for coverage of last year’s event.
There will be a fish auction conducted after the weigh in on each day, with proceeds going to the Westpac rescue helicopter services
