Speculation that Prince William and Kate Middleton are to honeymoon at ManningPoint is reaching fever pitch.

Emerging from security talks at a back entrance to Buckingham Palace, renowned anglophile Marcus Copperi is believed to have reached a deal where the security in place for the 2011 Manning point Classic will remain in place

Flathead Fill’s preparations to mount his inaugural challenge to unseat the front runners in this year’s pelagic fishing classic took a turn for the worst last weekend. Whilst honing his skills on the marauding white pointers off the reef at Fingal Bay, Fills secret weapon was left high and dry as the engine room and nets were shattered

The story below is written by Stan Konstantaras and involves MPFC Competitor Mr Mahi Mahi using the obvious pseudonym "James". The psychological warfare has begun!


The call went out as our March 2011 Barra trip approached. Once again we had booked Jason @ Barramadness, but the lead up was not looking good. Our planned

The Manning Point Fishing Classic is proudly noodle free since 2005. We abhor this behaviour where catfish are caught by hand. This practise is out-lawed in the classic and have even had to arrange a Tsunami so that "The Fisherman Previously Known as Catfish Col" aka "~" is now to be known as Tsunami Col.

The Ganghook family recently had a great day catching.

The hookup of the day went to Ganghook's eldest son who latched onto that most prized of MPFC champion fish- a giant Cobia near on 1.5metres long. After a lengthy battle the line snapped
