Protea Hotel Entebbe Fishing Competition – 29th May 2016

Amidst the chaos of visiting president and road closures – The Protea Hotel Entebbe Fishing Competition hosted 6 boats, with 15 fishermen with a common goal to seek the elusive Nile Perch.

Whilst the bigger fish were not to be found – there was an abundance of smaller fish with some being put back to spawn some more.

Those that were on the water early found the lake to be mirror like, this changed around 10am with a light storm. Which cleared within the hour.

All boats were in by 15h00 and hungry fishermen and onlookers feasted on the spread laid out by the Protea Hotel Entebbe. Executive Chef Ingmar Stief and his TEAM prepared a fare that was not often seen at the ESC. With Giant burgers, Pita rolls, Filled potatoes etc.


Following on to the meal and stories of what got away, the weigh in was done with the following results.

Victoria Mall Classic

The participants for the 2nd Victoria Mall Classic, hit the water at 0630 hr. Grey skies  the weather was calmwere the order of the day and the impression was that whilst the water was like glass, the heavens may erupt at any moment. However, this did not happen and with the exception of some very slight drizzle.

The field comprised 7 boats and 15 fishermen.

At the weigh in it was clear that there were only 2 main competitors, from which the results were as follows:

1st place - Douglas 17 kg

2nd place - Mel 7.2 kg

3rd place Sam - 6.8 kg (two fish)

Junior - Tom Gormely 3 kg

The catch was to be donated to the Entebbe Handicapped  school, however the 2 largest fish were auctioned off and the proceeds were used to buy food for the school. A total of 810,000 ugx was generated from the auction.
