Pania Shield – changes due to weather

Hi guys
After lengthy discussions with the Gisborne and Wairoa clubs due to the weather forecast we have changed the fishing boundaries from blacks beach in the north through to Whakamahi in the south.
North east winds with a easterly swell would indicate better fishing from the northern beaches, there will no longer be a briefing, fishing starts at 3pm Saturday and the weigh in will be held at the Whakaki car park at 11.30 Sunday morning, Wairoa and Gisborne if they wish may have a collective weigh in that is a representative to weigh another members catches, provided those members have been registered.
For the Wairoa and Gisborne clubs Pania Surfcasting have the following fishing rules
A maximum of three SSH or lemon fish trunked to 650mm if you catch a one meter fish you will be able to truck to 650mm.
Five Kahawai at a minimum size of 450mm
And Snapper to be a minimum of 300mm normal limits apply all other species as per legal criteria.

Pania field weekend #8:
Best Snapper prize package in access of $100
Average Kahawai prize pack of $90
Gurnard and other $50.00 each
Jackpot for gurnard is now up to $150
Total prizes in access of $440.00

Good luck and tight lines
