Boundaries are from Nuhaka rivermouth to Wairoa river mouth. Kickoff is 5am Saturday and weigh in is at whakaki carpark Sunday 10 am
The five anglers with the heaviest bags from each club will combine their weights together and the club with the heaviest bag will take the shield home.
Lemon fish will not be accepted as part of the Pania Shield but can still be weighed and counted for points for the Pania yearly points. All other pania size limits and bag limits stay the same for the shield.
Note its all about weight for the shield but normal fish club points still apply for each individual for their season tally.
Because their will be 25+ people at weigh in this will be a vaxed event.
Gisborne won the shield 2 years ago and Pania took it back last year, will need a big effort and turnout to lock up the shield for another year.
Forecast is bang on! Fishing should be on. See you out there.
