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.
