Ningaloo 2016 results

This years Ningaloo game fishing campout was the 4th year of the annual event and again was a complete success. This year hosted 58 competitors in 21 boats and 5 kayaks. Everyone was impressed with the yakfishwest team who peddled their kayaks on 25km round trips to fish in over 70m everyday, they were rewarded with plenty of Spanish mackerel and spangled emperor. Harley Kemp had a great year boating a massive 20kg ruby and the biggest red to take out 2 trophies. Damian D’Mello could do know wrong taking out 2 trophies on his kayak and was also taken out by Shane Bowman on the average angler boat to catch a big trophy winning black Marlin only 1 minute before the registration cut off. Louis Wakelin from South Australia from Team “All barred up” took out the best overall catch with a black Marlin that was 2.5 long, Luke Hamon the skipper of “All barred up” had a 6 hour battle with a 200kg plus black on 24kg just the day before the comp and had some crazy photos when he jumped in the water to pose with his capture of lifetime. This fish was the biggest by far seen by anyone over the years around the comp. Team getaway took out the most trophies with the most tagged billfish, best junior, biggest sailfish and best overall team.
