Annual Warren Golf Course and Country Club (WGCC) Fishing Competition 2014

Fishing at the Warren Golf Course was always an annual thing for Warren Golf Course and Country Club and her members. Freshwater fishes like Toman, Peacock Bass, Tilapia, Carp would be bought and added into the pond on an annual basis. The competition is strictly catch and release (CNR) and that meant base fish stocks would always be healthy year after year.

It was no different this year except that instead of participating, I was roped in to officiate and help with the fishes! I must admit that this year saw a large numbers of fishes (Toman, Peacock Bass) landed on lure probably because of the weather and the huge density of lurers this year. Lurers did not do so well previous years!

Anyway, some good sized Toman were landed on lures and not surprisingly, they took the smaller minnows and lures. In fact, they took 65mm lures! Luring at the pond was always going to be a challenge since the fish were not "wild" Toman and probably are less aggressive. Everyone still had a ball though and I estimated more than 20 fishes landed on lures! I tried my hand at some luring too and a few casts at the side with a small Norman Deep Diver connected me on a decent sized Peacock Bass! After that I went back to officiating... ha ha ha...

The competition also had some sponsors in Siow Chiang (Surecatch) and Hooked Magazine.. Seems like the number of golf course, country club, marina fishing activities has gone up!

Here are the pictures from the event...
A cast or two won't hurt right...

Rainy weather made it good for luring
Some casualties from baiting. No worries, someone brought them home. The toman seems like the newly released ones.

Jarret with the biggest of the competition. 16 or 17lbs was it?
Another good sized one. This one also looks like a newly released one.

I got one too!
