Rivers to Ranges sponsored field weekend two and it was our first open weekend of the season, meaning members could fish anywhere in NZ.
The weather did its best to challenge all those fishing with a very strong southerly hitting the country on Friday night, but despite this some very impressive bags of fish crossed the scales.
24 members fished with 81 fish crossing the scales. Consisting of:
11 kahawai
49 snapper
1 barracouta
2 blue moki
9 gurnard
1 red cod
1 kingfish
3 trevally
1 conger eel

Standouts for the weekend were many, including Andy B weighing 16 fish, followed closely by Andy G with 15 consisting of 6 different species! Kane weighed some nice far north snapper as well as the first kingfish of the season that saw him take out the jackpot prize. The highlight of the weigh in however had to be Rex’s beast of a snapper from East Clive topping the magic 20 pound mark at 9.37kg. Well done Rex! Other pin fish went to Mark T ( Kahawai 2.72), James B (Trev 1.8), Andy B (Kahawai 2.64 and Trev 2.46) and Andy G (Trev 1.89 and Blue Moki 3.37). Awesome stuff guys!
