Well a fantastic weekend all round stunning weather albeit a bit on the roasty side, beautiful seas…. and well fish too. Thanks again for bearing with me at weigh in, much appreciated.
Thirty five anglers got out and gave it their all this weekend. 10 pairs and 15 solo fighters….. landing 93 fish in total.
A massive team effort from Kane and Ken once again with a haul of 19 fish. And our best Solo fighter was Peter Kilkelly with 9 fish being weighed.
There is still the odd Coutta hanging around the waters with Kane bringing home one at 3.14kg.
Twenty Spotted Smooth Hounds were caught with the heaviest of 4.74kg going to Pete Hamilton who paired up with Simon Te Whaiti. Second Heaviest went to Ken with 4.66 kg. And third was 4.11 again going to Pete Hamilton.
Sixty seven Kahawai were landed with the heaviest going to Kane at 2.74kg. Second going to Peter Kilkelly at 2.59kg and third again to Kane with one weighing 2.58kg. All of these are Pin Kahawai, one other pin kahawai I will mention is Kevin O’Connor’s of 2.51kg. Nice work boys!
The Snapper seem to be starting to play fair at times. 3 were caught this weekend. Kane catching two .99kg and .93kg. Peter Kilkelly weighing the third of .72kg.
Lastly and most impressively…. James Parahi rocked the scales with a 12.55kg Kingi followed by Jimmy Beazley’s 11.68kg Kingi. Both of which I understand were caught locally. Awesome work guys!! Nice to see these moochers cruising our shores.
