End of season Weighmasters report

Field weekend 12, kindly sponsored by Rivers to Ranges, was the last of the season and an ‘open boundary’ weekend.

Members spread out far and wide, from Wellington to Auckland, and everywhere in between to escape the big southerly swells that rolled into Hawke’s Bay. Most found fishing reasonably hard but as always, some standouts crossed the scales, none more so than Ivan’s huge pin Gurnard weighing 1.37kg. Other pin fish were weighed by Kane, Kahawai – 2.68kg and Gurnard – 1.08kg. Tim and Jason L both weighed pin Kahawai of 2.51kg and 2.52kg respectively. Well done guys!

Thanks again to Rivers to Rangers for their ongoing support. Prizes went to Ivan for his Gurnard, which also took out the jackpot. Jason L for heaviest Snapper. Tareq for average weight Kahawai. James B for heaviest ‘other’. Xavier B took out the junior prize.

As the 2020/21 season nears an end, I thought I would give you a run down on the last 12 field weekends.
