Well, well, well. I wonder what Club didn't show rang in the morning said we'll be there but ?????. Beautiful sea, two small showers then absolutely fine clear weather from 5.30 on. 30 BRAVE fisherpeople from Pania, nine likewise BRAVE and seven HARDY rod clenchers from Gizzy and Wairoa weighed in 5 snapper, the heaviest a good 8.38kg, 14 Gurnard, Heaviest at 1.04kg, 1 Trevalli, Heaps of red cod, and some smoothies. The Sweepstake was won by Al from Gizzy with a 17.26kg 7 Gill shark. . |
The wind, oh the wind. You could have stood in a sandblasters tunnel and felt better. I had to leave the beach it was so bad. 1am mind. Sou' wester my ####. It was directly along the beach and the sand was moving at 40 to 50 knots like a hailstorm. Madness to the extreme. But we did it. I am wondering though what if the conditions are like this during next years Nats. Will the FEARLESS FIELDING crew turn up I must mention the raffle. It was supposed to be a big tub full of goodies, from wine to fishing gear, well we ended up with three prizes in total. An awesome effort by everyone. AND a big ups to those thirty from Pania who travelled up and those that came to challenge. Lastly, Gizzy finally wrestled the shield from us. A big CONGRATULATIONS team, an awesome effort and it is good to see it move.
