Field weekend 10 was sponsored by Crafty’s and was the second of our Challenge weekends. The challenge was a species based one, where for each species caught, points were increased in order of the species weighed.
Twenty two members fished with 96 fish crossing the scales consisting of 49 kahawai, 12 snapper, 17 gurnard, 7 blue moki, 3 SSH’s, 2 each of barracuda and trevally and 1 each of kingfish, tope, Jack mackerel and red cod.
Highlights of the weekend were the 17 gurnard to cross the scales. Easily the most gurnard weighed at a field weekend for many years. Also, the impressive bags of fish weighed by both Kane and Jimmy B who were our top 2-point scorers for the weekend.
Pin fish went to Gavin with his trevally, 1.9kg. Jimmy B with a kahawai, 2.53kg and gurnard 1.0kg and Kane with a tope shark, 14.72kg. Well done guys!
Thanks once again to Crafty’s for their generous sponsorship and continued support of our club.
Next field weekend is 12/13 May, our last of the season and is our second open boundary weekend with the weigh in at the slightly later time of 2pm on the Sunday.
