Dear Ronny

I find myself still in the wilds of Peru,  searching for the sportfishing  challenge for which I am renowned. My piscatorial exploits in the ancient Amazon or the wilds of the Pacific amidst the productive grounds of Humboldt current have to date been shall we say limited. Piranha

Ok, here is the flattie I caught. And in true fisherman style, I did miss a massive one about 20 minutes beforehand. Played for about 10 mins on the sandy flats wondering how I'd get it onto shore before she spat the hook. It must have been the one that Groper missed last year at the Classic. (Sorry to bring that up, Groper)

The 2013 Manning Point Fishing Classic started in beautiful conditions on Friday. Mangrove, Fishin and Ganghook were on the water early and were reward with a good haul that was consistent throughout the day. Groper even had his team mate Kneptune catching fish so by the end of the day there was a big feed of fish.

Never knew ASADA had jurisdiction over MPFC - most competitors will now be worried.

The MPFC is bigger than the ASDA and the Australian Cricket Board, especially if you don't get your homework done on time.

Lingerie football is sooooo last week. Now it's Lingerie Fishing and the MPFC is possibly set to change forever with Victoria's Secret and Bendon lining up to become major sponsors.
