The 2007 Manning Point Fishing Classic has been successfully won by Stillwater Steve, with Mangrove Mike a close second. Stingray Smithie caught a nice stingray off the beach but we didn't get a chance to weigh it. Sorry Stingray.
The winning fish was a Cobia, a rare fish in these waters, but a typical example of the exotic nature of the Manning Point Fishing Classic and the extreme skills of the participants.
The Manning Point Fishing Classic is over for another year. A great win to Big Jig Geoff was very popular among the crowds who flocked to the tournament.
Team White won the team event and the competitors are now off to complete the rest of the Poissons et Boisson Extreme Fishing Tour.

After a weekend of great weather and not so active fishing, Barnacle Barry took out the 2005 Manning Point Fishing Classic.
Using his in depth knowledge of the esturarian river systems, Barnacle embarassed those around him by being the only participant on his Team Alpha to land any fish. A flathead king, Barnacle pulled in a beauty on Day One which was never beaten throughout the rest of the tournament.
Well done, Barnacle!
