The majority of the 25 members who fished took the opportunity to explore different beaches around the north island from Wellington in the south, several beaches up the west coast, the usual favourites in the Bay of Plenty and Kane up in the far North.
The result was 173 fish crossing the scales with several standout catches. Six members scored in excess of 1000 points for the weekend with Kane leading the way with 2330.

Just a quick reminder, at weigh ins if you think any of your fish may not go the minimum length, please check them with me prior to the weigh in commencing to save me having to make that call as you weigh your fish.
