Rawai is at the southern end of Phuket and contains the Sea Gypsy Village where we go for our famous fresh seafood feasts!
The Rawai Beach Fishing Club's 2014 Classic boat fishing competition took place on 25th to 27th February. 20 boats with teams of four took part with fishing centred around (but three miles offshore) of the Similan Islands Lat 8.30N and 97.40E.
There were some excellent Giant Trevelly caught with the best weighing in at 16.3kg as caught by Anton Arefiev from Russia who fished aboard 'Zoom Zoom' in the Ardent Angler team.
|George also set the pace in the Dorado category with a very nice 4.6kg dorado which was beaten later in the event.|
|And another cracking G.T of 15.8kg.|
Best marlin measured 167cm and the best sailfish came to 203cm.
Next year's event will be in early March 2015. the event is open to all. if any of you chaps out there fancied entering or even getting a team together as part of a holiday over here that you are guaranteed to enjoy...then let me know and I can set up communications with the organisers for you.
