The JBay Winterfest Skins Fishing Competition was a great success, with great catches this year and some prize specimens revealed. This year the contest enjoyed tremendous support from their sponsors, and there were a multitude of prizes for all the various disciplines. The big prize was the Biggest of all Species R10.000.00 Prize, sponsored by The Bay Past Co. and Algoa Nissan, which was won by Liwan Welgemoed with a Pajama Shark 95cm.

The event shows continuous growth, with fishing a popular past time in JBay and environs, and the harsh weather did nothing to deter the competitors.
