Welcome everyone to the June online comp - last month marked the highest scoring fish for the year so far (actually the highest scoring fish in recent memory) in Carnster's epic wahoo - let's hope that June is just as joyous for some lucky entrant :)

Top ten on the leaderboard after May are below - there has been some reshuffling at the top, but plenty of blokes are still in with a crack:

Position Angler Score
1 Carnster 618
2 Paul B 579
3 Bertros 558
4 Float 549
5 Robsea 547
6 Cheaterparts 541
7 Kanganoe 469
8 Premium 465
9 Ado 436
10 Killer 422

And yes, you read it correctly - the man from Dalmeny has cracked the top ten! :shock: :D

The June 2013 comp will run from Saturday June 1st until Sunday June 9th

Name of Angler : Ado
Date NOT Caught : 4/6/20133 & 7/6/2013.
State & location Fish NOT caught in : Pondage NSW.
Type & Size of Fish : Nothin', not a sausage.
Tackle/line/lure used : Who cares, caught nothin'.
Conditions : Perect. Uncontaminated by fish.
Other Comments: I forgot my net on Tuesday. I hooked a monster bream, huge it was, comp winner for sure. It came to the yak quite easily. I could see the hook moving about in its mouth, which was unnerving. I tried three or four times to belly lift the leviathon. I only managed to take the pressure off enough for it to spit the hook before I dropped it the final time. Screaming ensued.

I then lost another 9 over two days.

The Baker is well above the line when compared to my Wirrah from a couple of months ago.
All is fair in love and the AKFF fishing comp.

Such a lovely day on Sunday. I headed for my local harbour and sought a monster from the deep. Oh well. Aspirations aside I failed to photograph either of the two slimey mackerel that I caught. Looks like a lean winter.

So we've finally hit the half-way point of the 2013 online comp. Scores have been tallied for June - more than half the field scoring above the magic 100 points tells me that fishing was good during the June comp period. Carnster's mega mulloway stood out as the highest scorer in June - the magician from Queensland just keeps catching great fish during comp time. Also impressive were some ripper snapper, and also some lovely winter kings from Sydney. New benchmark this month was cuttlefish, which I have set as 30cm hood length - the same as squid. So it seems that Bertros has been spared the humiliation of entering a shameful sergeant baker.....for now :twisted:

Full scores for June are:

Position Angler Score
1 Carnster 167
2 Solatree 134
3 Premium 128
4 Daveyak 117
5 Spork 112
6 Killer 100
6 Bertros 100
7 Marty75 97
8 PaulB 96
10 Cheaterparts 95
11 Ado 40
11 Robsea 40

And cumulative scores for the YTD. Carnster is starting to streak ahead - being able to catch monster spotties, wahoo and jews is proving the be great asset in the comp this year. Can the field bridge the gap? Plenty of guys scrapping for the minor placings, and Ado stays in the top 10 by virtue of his June TOW.

POSITION Angler Score
1 Carnster 785
2 Paul B 675
3 Bertros 658
4 Cheaterparts 636
5 Premium 593
6 Robsea 587
7 Solatree 556
8 Float 549
9 Killer 522
10 Ado 476
11 Kanganoe 469
12 Daveyak 329
13 MrX 282
14 Spork 280
15 Brolans 179
16 Marty75 97
17 cjbfisher 96
18 Scoman 88
19 Nad97 74

Random winner of a prize from the sack for June in Killer - congrats Ron, shoot me a PM and we'll sort something out for you.

July comp starts this Saturday, and will run from July 6th to 14th - lock it in fellas.
