|2006 Dampier Billfish Classic|
This years 2006 Dampier Billfish Shoot out was the biggest ever! There were 61 boats and 201 anglers trying their luck at catching a few billfish and winning some prizes over the 3 days of fishing.
The weather was reasonable for the bigger boats but the littler ones definitely weren’t handling the seas as well.
The fish were a little scarce compared to previous years but there were still quite a few around.
A lot of people were getting the fish up but could not stay connected long enough for as tag to be put in.
I would like to thank all the sponsors and everyone who competed in the event.
Also if you have any photos from the comp dont hesitate to send them in! Cheers ...Luke Groen
