Field Weekend Seven sponsored by Thirsty Liquor and Black Bull was an ‘Early Bird’ weekend starting on Friday evening. Unfortunately, a strong southerly swept into Hawke’s Bay on Friday morning making the northern beaches unfishable, meaning the 16 members who fished had to slog it out locally in less-than-ideal conditions. This resulted in only 19 fish crossing the scales!
There were however three big standouts! Kane and George both scored solid pin Snapper of 7.17kg and 6.81kg respectively and Duncan weighed a pin Trevally of 2.19kg caught at Westshore! Awesome work lads!
Extremely popular beverage prizes went to Kane for his Snapper; Hamish for the heaviest Gurnard; Duncan’s Trevally took out the best ‘other’ and Ivan caught the average weight Kahawai. Thanks once again to our awesome sponsors!
Field weekend Eight kicks is an ‘Early Bird’ FW kicking off on Friday the 12th of Feb. It is also a Challenge Weekend with the challenge to be announced nearer the time.
In the meantime, keep in mind the Kahawai comp is getting closer, so please make the effort to get out and secure sponsored prizes. Every little bit helps for the club to run a successful comp.
