Field Weekend 9 kindly sponsored by Crafty’s Rods and Guns was a challenge weekend with Kane setting the challenge to weigh three or more Kahawai to receive double points for the first three weighed. This proved harder than expected with only five members out of the 20 who fished managing to bag three or more.
Also up for grabs was the Gun City jackpot for the heaviest Trevally over 1.5kg.
With seven nice Trevally crossing the scales the jackpot was destined to go!
With big sea’s rolling into the usual hot spots of Whakaki and Tahaenui, members were split between local beaches and a favourite of years gone by, Mahanga. It was great to see eight Pania people fishing side by side on Mahanga like years of old. For some of the eight in attendance the fishing was good. All seven Trevally weighed came from Mahanga, including Peter K’s jackpot wining fish of 2.9kg. Also a couple of nice Snapper in the 3kg range caught by Kane and Gary.
Prize winners for the weekend were, heaviest Kahawai, Kane, 2.26kg; average weight Kahawai, Peter K, 1.58kg; heaviest Gurnard, Tareq, 0.55kg; heaviest Snapper, Gary, 3.63kg. Thanks again to Crafty’s for the awesome prizes!
Pins for the weekend went to, Peter K x2, trevally, 1.88kg & 2.9kg. Sue K, x2 Trevally, 1.99kg & 2.26kg; Kane, Trevally, 1.51kg and Estella, Blue moki, 3.06kg.
Nice work team!
