WEIGHMASTER REPORT – FIELD WEEKEND 6
Field Weekend 6 was sponsored by Hunting and Fishing and was the first of our early start weekends.
Unfortunately, the good weather that preceded the weekend ended a few hours after fishing started with a nasty south-east change making conditions challenging for the rest of the weekend.
11 members attended the weigh in with 34 fish weighed. 14 kahawai, 11 snapper, 8 SSH, and 1 gurnard. No pin fish were weighed.
The absolute standout for the weekend was Andy B who managed 9 very nice snapper at Awatoto before the weather turned. The biggest of which was just over 2kg. Awesome effort Andy!
Half way through the season and the catch numbers are looking good! So far members have weighed: 270 kahawai, 106 snapper, 39 SSH, 17 barracuda, 13 gurnard, 13 red cod, 11 trevally, 3 kingfish, 3 blue moki, 1 red moki, 1 seven gill shark and 1 hammerhead shark. Well done team!
Keep up the good work,
