With the weather looking less than average the call was made early to extend the weekend into an open field weekend, a number of members ventured up into the bay of plenty, with most bringing home a decent bag of quality fish.
The prizes were split 50/50 between those that traveled and those who fished locally, Best gurnard was a nice .92kg fish caught by Dion, which made the best local fish a 1.45kg Snapper landed by Mark R, Heaviest snapper for the weekend went to Karim it crossed the scales at 3.65 kgs, and the average Kahawai went to George he was the only angler the catch our five-kahawai limit.
Also, on the line this weekend was our Gun City + fishing jackpot fish of a snapper of 2.5kgs or greater, Karim cleaned up with his 3.65kg fish, so our next jackpot fish is a gurnard of .75kgs.
Our next event is the Kahawai Comp held on Sunday the 28 th of March, thanks to the support from all our partner sponsors we will have a total prize pack of over $5000.00 prizes from 1 st – 15 th place an average weight prize valued at
$1000 and heaps of spot prizes, with tickets costing just $20 per rod this is going to be an awesome surfcasting comp.
Points for FW10 to come shortly
