FW One 2021/22 Weighmasters report

Field weekend 1, kindly sponsored by Streetwise Coffee, was an ‘open boundary’ weekend.
Area’s fished included Matata, Hawai, Marenui, Hicks Bay and all the usual local spots by those who chose to stay local. Fishing for most was hard, but some nice catches crossed the scales from the EBOP beaches as well as Hicks Bay.

The top four points scorers were Karim (1055), Dion (1005), Jamie (805) and Kane with (730). Xavier Benge takes an early lead in the junior section weighing a nice snapper for 155 points.
There were no pin fish weighed.

Prize winners for FW one were, Karim, heaviest snapper 3.34kg.
Hamish, heaviest gurnard 0.63kg.
James P, average kahawai 1.5kg.
Mark Ives, heaviest other, barracuda 1.96kg and Xavier’s snapper, 1.5kg took out the junior prize.
Once again, a huge thanks to Streetwise for their ongoing support!

Field weekend two kicks off Friday 8th October at 6pm. Normal club boundaries apply with the weigh in at the fire station at midday Sunday 10th October. Good luck to all.

Tight lines,
Hamish.

Rivers to Ranges field weekend 2

This weekend brings us to our 2nd fishing weekend and our first one locally for the season.

Rivers to Ranges are sponsoring this field weekend, make sure you get out and support our local sponsors when you get a chance. If your anything like me it’s always a good excuse to support local and grab a bit of extra gear before heading out each field weekend.

Normal local Boundaries this weekend. (Mahanga Beach to Herbertville)

Prizes this weekend are Heaviest Snapper, Average Kahawai, Best Other, Heaviest Gurnard and a  few spot prizes also. Might be the whiskey talking but I will also throw in $50 for this weekend only for the heaviest Moki over 2.5kg.

Start time is 6pm Friday and weigh in is at the fire station on Sunday 12pm.

Good luck to all and hopefully the scales get a bit of a workout Sunday.

 

Cheers Karim
