The fourth round of 'The 2012 Angler of the Year PDO Recreation Club' competition was held last Thursday, 26th April 2012. This competition was generously sponsored by STS Oman represented by its Business and HR directors Mr Ramachandran and Ibrahim.
A total of 12 eager fishermen in 6 fishing boats joined the event, hoping for the daily prizes and the end of year Fisherman of the year title.. After a cancellation of a fishing competition early in the month for various reasons including unexpected storm and rain, the competition was held in extra ordinary spring weather conditions. Wave height of less than 0.4 meters and wind speeds of 5 knots were observed. The competition was started at 0630 in the morning, a rush last minute to launch the boats and availability of the winch man early in the morning resulted in minor launching delays. From there onwards, the competition was as fierce as it would ever be!
Majority of the anglers expected less fish activities in the sea. When the weather buoy was visited, a sign of Al Dorado seems to spring back to life. Few although small in size were managed to be caught at the buoy. Various reefs were attempted from 85 meters up to 147 meters close to the Fahal Island with no sign of any fish. The day started to look grim! It was almost 11 o'clock in the day with less than 1.5 hours of fishing competition time to go, a reef as deep as 175 meters some 25 km away from the shore was tested. This reef, proved to spring to life with Andaq of various sizes. Within few minutes, fish of up to 4 kg were reeled to the angler's boats. Adrenalin was once again running through the veins, with time pressure, game and bottom fish in various species to be caught had driven the anglers to become speechless! These depths are no joke to reel in big fish. It takes stamina, patience, and endurance to do so. Said Al Harthy and his new partner Mohammed Humaid proved to be the champions of the bottom fish in for the event. They came back with a great bottom catch of 24 kg.The Closest to this weight was of Dr Hakeem's and his partner Suleiman Al Harthy catch weighing 12.99 kg. However in the game class, the partners came back with 10.2 kg. This was enough to take the trophy of the overall winners to both fishing classes.
