The 34th Penguin Angling Club Angling Bonanza

The 34th Angling Bonanza hosted by Swakopmund-based Penguin Angling Club at the Henties Bay Sports Club in Hentiesbay on 26 December was once again a big success.

The biggest angling festival in Namibia attracted many anglers at the coast to catch the Bonanza fish worth N$20 000 in cash with the big-gest kabeljou. Steenbras each earned N$4 000 for their respective owners and N$3 000 each for the biggest Dassie and Galjoen. The biggest Barber and the Game fish will net N$500 for their fishers.
The heaviest fish of the day was a massive 18,195 kg Steenbra caught by Terrance Peterson. The catch earned him N$20 000 in cash. The winner of the Steenbras category went to C. Lesh with his fish weighing in at 12,270 kg. The price for the winning kabeljou went to Werner Redelinghuys with his fish of 17,990 kg.
The winning Galjoen of 1,675 kg was caught by Hentie Schreder, while J de Jager caught the largest Dassie tipping the scale at 1,945 kg. Gideon Lubbe won the Game Fish tipping the scale at 1,935 kg. Young De Wet caught the biggest Barber, weighing 0,5kg.
All the fish caught on the day was donated to the Henties Bay Old Age Home for charity.
