Field Weekend Five, sponsored by Thirsty Liquor was a ‘fish-together’ weekend, with the chosen beach being Mohaka.
Eighteen members fished, but unfortunately fishing was patchy at best, with most struggling to find the fish.
The hard fishing showed at weigh-in with only 23 Kahawai, 10 Snapper and 1 Trevally crossing the scales.
Sizes were down also, with no Kahawai over 2kg, and no Snapper over 1 kg. Subsequently, the ‘Jackpot Fish’ (a kahawai over 2.8kg) was not threatened, and $50 will be added to the jackpot for Field Weekend 6, our ‘Ham’s Weekend’.
Thirsty Liquor prizes that were won went to Kane for heaviest Snapper (0.92kg). Kane’s 0.95kg Trevally also took out heaviest ‘other’. Average weight Kahawai prize was won by George.
The Ham’s Field Weekend 6 kicks of 14 December. Good luck to all those fishing.
