Day 2 - The Winners

By Ronny Reuters OBE (MP)
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. Ganghook had a sterling tournament as did Mr Mahi Mahi and Haka Jo. Captain Bluering took home the Order of the Pink Rod and Fishin Phil won the social award. Mr Mahi Mahi, Haka Jo and Tsunami Col won the Team Award. Carpfish Kim won Rookie of the Year.
Thanks to all involved with the special mention to Fishin Phil in assisting in organisation and Captain Bluering for his development and control or refreshments. Thanks to Marlin for photo duties on the last day. Also thanks to our sponsors Jarvis Walker, Telligence, and Rapala.
