Officials concerned by the lack of blogs for this years event have begun analysis of MPFC classics going back over a hundred years.

Initial results confirm that so far this year there has been exactly one blog recorded. When combined with recent events around the world and multiplied by the the Mayfield Beer Index, this indicates that

Mangrove Mikes efforts to get a higher seed ranking for the 2013 Manning Point Fishing Classic by entering in the Waikiki Extreme Paddleboard Fishing Tournament have failed miserably.
Mangrove spent far too much time cruising the tourist circuits and sleeping in late. His paddle board skills were atrocious and when he was successful standing

Well from one champion to another.... "Men and fish are alike. They both get into trouble when they open their mouths".

Famous Manning Point Fishing Classic entrant, Sir James, has cleaned up at a local fundraising gig for his own services. Apparently he had no idea he'd bought the winning tickets until his number was called.
I love me, he said, and all the raffle folk.

In a ceremony that can only be described as 'glittering', Manning Point Fishing Classic organizer Marcus Copperi has unveiled the updated Winner Board.
'Flathead Phil now has his name in lights as he deserves' said Marcus.
Manning Point has put on perfect weather for the day and 2010 Winner, Mangrove Mike, has been seen in the area

After about a thousand hours sleep everyone was keen and awake to get stuck into fishing in a bid to win the Classic. It was another glorious day and perfect for fishing yet again the action only started to hot up at the turn of the top tide.

Flathead Fill left it to the last moment to win the 2012 Manning Point Fishing Classic. At 12:30 pm with 30 minutes to go, Flathead Fill followed a double flattie hookup by Carpfish and Mangrove, by bringing in a 61 cm lizard.
He just pipped Ganghook for the title on countback due to his capture of a flattie on the Pink Rod on Saturday arvo.

Part 1 A big thank you to Ronny for another fantastic event. I'm ready to enter the dates for MPFC 2013 into my BlackBerry. Special mention to Captain Bluering for his MasterChef impersonation - this was the icing on the cake as he was worthy of special thanks just for putting on 2 kegs.

Part 2 Also, Fish'n Phil thank you for the lasagne. After already consuming meat from 9 different species I didn't think I could be tempted by any more protein. Then - along comes the Magic Burger (2 slices of white bread, a slab of lasagne finished off with BBQ bacon). This sandwich alone had me lining up for next year's event. Tight lines all, MMM (Mr Mahi Mahi)

Ditto Mahi, another fantastic weekend away very honoured to be on the trophy... already have some great ideas to 'value add' for the 2013 trophy. My two boys were very impressed when I walked into the front door with Champion Hat, Trophy, and FISH!! Long may the classic reign. Maybe we can get a special guest appearance from Malcom N. next year....:-)

Saturday dawned far too early and it was the keen team of Mr Mahi Mahi (MMM, Haka Jo and Tsunami) who took to the water first. The other teams trickled out - Fishin Phil (with Ganghook, and Sir James) were off next followed by Team Karisma skippered by Big Jig with Captain Bluering, Roughy Rod and Hookem Hales. Flathead Fill's team which included
