In the case of more than one qualifying fish being weighed, the heaviest will take the money.
As always, if no qualifying Kingfish are weighed, the jackpot will be $150 for FW3.

Welcome to our first field weekend and a big shout out to Streetwise Coffee Napier & Hastings, please support these sponsor partners, it’s been a challenging time for all retail outlets.

Heaviest Snapper, Average Kahawai, best other, heaviest Gurnard and of course our Chocolate fish lucky angler draw.

Our club casting event will go ahead as planned this Sunday with a start time of 9.00am at the polo grounds Hastings, access is off Bennett road.
This is the first of three casting events, you must attend one of the casting days if you wish to be eligible for the champion of champions competition, your best casting score over the three events will be added to your field weekend points
As our season kicks off it will be great to see our new members come along and have a go, there’s always someone available to help if you would like to improve your casting distance or accuracy.
Hope everyone is safe and well in their bubbles! Due to being in Level 4 and the uncertainty surrounding what level we will be in from Friday, the decision has been made to cancel the Brass Monkey on Sunday (29/8). We will keep you updated on our next scheduled events closer to the time.
We were greeted with flat seas for our 2nd Brass Monkey Event although a cold breeze did get up mid-morning.
Unfortunately the fish missed the invitation . Well done to Chris Morris who weighed in a 3.8kg Smooth hound, the only weighable fish of the day . (Tareq’s smooth hound falling a cm short) A special mention to Dakota who managed a mullet and a kahawai while some of us could only feed the crabs.
Chris cleaned up the sweepstake with myself as a silent partner coming along for the ride.
After 2 Brass Monkey events George Fotu leads the singles title with 410 points and Chris Morris in 2nd with 130 points.
Well done to all that fished today.
We will be holding our Brass Monkey Doubles event this Sunday 25th July. Fishing is at Le Quesne Road again. Drawing fishing partners at 8am by the toilets, fishing until 2pm. $5 sweepstake entry payable before you start fishing , junior members optionable if they want to enter in the sweepstake or not. Sweepstake will be paid out to the highest points team of the day. Individual fish will still count towards the singles title (combined points of the 3 Brass Monkeys)
Have managed to rattle up a few spot prizes for Sunday. Any team that’s catches a weighable fish between low tide ( 12.15pm) and 2pm will be guaranteed a prize!
Weather looks ok and the whispers are that the clean water is coming in and the spineys are having a day off.
See you there
