Field weekend 5 and 6 have come and gone with mixed results in both with some members struggling and others doing quite well.
Field weekend 5 was generously sponsored by Hamill’s Napier and field weekend 6 sponsored by Rockgas. Thanks to both for their ongoing support of our club.
There were 3 standouts in field weekend 5. Kane’s impressive bag of 19 fish was outstanding, including his limit of snapper. He also caught a pin trevally of 1.76kg. Tareq nailed a personal best pin snapper of 5.75kg. Well done mate! Last but not least Jimmy B weighed a very impressive pin snapper of 12.34kg. An awesome fish!
Field weekend 6, which was our annual hams weekend, saw an annoying southerly hit Hawkes bay on Friday evening which definitely had an effect on results with fish numbers down on previous weekends. Twenty one members fished with only 31 fish being weighed. Oddly for this time of year no snapper crossed the scales, perhaps a result of the southerly coming through on Friday. Standout for field weekend 6 was once again Jimmy B with a solid pin kingfish of 9.84kg. Other pins went to Roy with a kahawai of 2.59 and Kane with a SSH of 6.22kg. Nice work lads.
Our next field weekend is in the New Year on January 12/13.
