The Aberdeen Fishing Club hosted the 25th annual fishing tournament again this year at Glenbawn Dam on the long weekend.

The tournament was a huge success this year with thanks to Anglo American for allowing us to expand the tournament and include a lure only section.
There were 79 anglers and many juniors.
All juniors are encouraged as the Glenbawn Classic is one of the few tournaments where bait is still allowed.
The lure only section was won by local identity Steve Richards.
He was fishing with Ron Jones who was a close second.
Richards had a three session bag of just under eight kilograms.
Jones’ six fish were a mere 700 grams below Richards’.
Richards and Jones were fishing up the back casting from the boat towards the bank.
They caught most of their fish on spinner baits and Jackel Bibless Minnows.
Richards did not divulge the colour, but if anyone wants to find out Pete at Glenbawn Kiosk would be able to let you know what colour and lure type is currently working.
The bait and lure section was won by Stuart Everingham with a bag over eight kilograms for the three sessions.
Dave Glendinning was a close second.
Everingham was reluctant to divulge his techniques but Glendinning was fishing with both shrimp and yabbies.
Glendinning was fishing unweighted baits in any area of the dam.
If he did not have any interest in his bait within the first 15 minutes he moved to another spot.
The yabbies were small and were out fishing the shrimp.
The junior section was won by Seth Ison with a three session bag of 6.36 kilograms – a great bag from an upcoming junior angler.
The tournament is a catch and release tournament with all proceeds used to stock Glenbawn with bass fingerlings.
With the help of Anglo American and the proceeds of the tournament Aberdeen Fishing Club will be able to put in a whopping 12,000 bass fingerlings this year.
Club members distribute the fingerlings around the lakeside in their boats, which ensures a greater than normal survival of the fingerlings.
The tournament will be held again next year and all anglers are encouraged to put the date in their diaries now, as it is one of the most relaxed and family friendly tournaments about.
