Weigh Master’s Report Field Weekend Four 15 – 17 November 2019

Field Weekend Four was kindly sponsored by Gun’s and Tackle Hunting and Fishing and was an early start weekend. Excellent weather and sea conditions greeted the 26 members who fished. With 116 fish crossing the scales on Sunday including an impressive 41 Snapper.

Highlights of the weekend include George’s limit-bag of Snapper and Jimmy Beazley’s 7 Blue Moki, 3 of which were pins.

Other pin fish went to Kane with a Kahawai of 2.6kg and a Blue Moki of 3.47kg; Hamish with a Blue Moki of 3.13kg and James Benge’s very impressive 1.42kg Gurnard.

With Kane’s Kahawai just falling short of the 2.8kg weight the jackpot rolls over to Field Weekend Five.

A big thanks to our generous sponsors, remember to get out and support them.
Field Weekend Five starts Saturday 30 November and is a club fish-together with Rex to confirm the location. The weigh-in will be at the chosen beach midday Sunday 1 December.

Field Weekend 3 Results

Weigh Master’s Report Field Weekend Three
1-3 November 2019
Field Weekend Three was kindly sponsored by Crafty’s and was a challenge weekend where every try the All Blacks scored earned double points for the corresponding number of fish. With the All Blacks scoring six tries in their play-off with Wales, big points were on offer. Unfortunately, a persistent south westerly weather system meant catch numbers were low, with the exception of James Benge who brought nine fish to the scales, eight of them being Gurnard.
James’s outstanding catch included three pin Gurnard and a huge total of 2130 points which leap-frogged him to the top of the points table. Great effort James!
The other stand out for the weekend was Mark Ives with an impressive pin Snapper of 8.47kg and an equally impressive pin Gurnard of 1.25kg.
Kane took away the Gun City Jackpot prize with his 2.98kg Blue Moki, nice work Kane!
A big thanks to our generous sponsors, remember to get out and support them.
Field weekend four is another early-bird weekend kicking off on Friday 15th of November with a new Jackpot fish of a Kahawai over 2.8kg.

Craftys challenge field weekend

Craftys challenge field weekend falls on the same weekend as the rugby World Cup final, so the theme for or challenge is based around the RWC, firstly we have an earlier start time of 6pm Friday so those that wish to watch the rugby final on Saturday night can also hit the beach Friday night and land a few fish.
The challenge for this weekend will be double points for the number of fish based on the number of tries scored by the All Blacks on Friday night, so if the All Blacks score three tries, your first three fish weighed will earn double points, normal points for the balance of your catch, what fish you weigh to earn double points is totally up to you.
Normal weigh in time and normal boundaries for this one.

Best Snapper, Average Kahawai, heaviest Kahawai, best other, best junior and a spot chocolate fish prize, total value we are fishing for this weekend is in access of $400.00.
