This year, Fuller Lodge’s Burdekin Barra Rush annual fishing competition weekend was once again a major success despite a cyclone nearby. A variety of estuary fish were caught by both junior and senior competitors ranging from whiting to the sought-after barramundi. Due to the windy conditions, very little offshore fish were caught.
A very happy Michael Wright won the attractive senior ticket prize, a Quintrex F Series 390 boat powered by a 20HP Yamaha Outboard sitting on a Telwater Trailer. This prize was sponsored by Coral Coast Marine and A & B Rural Supplies of Ayr.
As usual, many kilos of fish were donated by competitors to the Aged Care Homes in Ayr and Home Hill.
Fuller Lodge members take great pride in arranging this professionally run annual event in the Burdekin which is run in a very professional manner.
