FISHING
 
Snapper fishing is fairly patchy again. There are quite a few being caught but it can be hard work and a little patience is required. Popular spots where anglers are enjoying some success haven’t really changed much in the last few weeks. The Puddle, outside Centre Island, out the back of Ohinau and around the river you will almost certainly find them, the trick is getting the fish to bite. There are some big trevally and the odd gurnard around too, that will top up your catch bag. Out wide, things are ticking over with a big eye tuna caught last weekend somewhere around the Footprint. In the absence of any good old fashion storms, the warm water is creeping in slowly but it looks like some good water is in around the 500-600 m mark which is well within range and we are optimistic that some good fish will be caught in the very near future.
 
SAD NEWS
 
Unfortunately we lost another club member several days ago when Michael Hood passed away. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
 
CONGRATULATIONS
 
To Nathanael Brown fishing on “Sea Quil” in area Ann Hamilton Harcourts, who caught a 13.01kg albacore on 37kg gear. A junior club and pending NZ record.
 
GOOD LUCK
 
To the 5 entries we have so far in the Sherriff Drainage/Coastline Excavations tagging club. We’re still very much in the early stages of the season and a good weather forecast for Saturday will hopefully see a few more entries for this $5000 cash prize.
 
LADIES TOURNAMENT
 
Only a week and a bit away. There are heaps of great prizes including the Holden Spark and entries are filling quickly. Numbers will be capped so if you want to be involved, get your entry to the office asap.

CHUCK A CHOOK Guest Tosser Alan Proctor  – chalked up another year
 
Thanks Wotzie for taking the notes while I was busy chucking food around the room. I’ll try & interpret what you’ve written and hopefully get it verbatim. The throwing was excellent and the perfect degree of difficulty for each recipient.

Good, safe pair of hands

Cody

First throw landed at his feet (handle of the bag was caught in my fingers)
Second throw, another good catch

#96

Dave

Good solid catch

See – no chicken to clean off the floor and no broken glasses to sweep up. A good size crowd in here last night – off the highs of a couple of weeks ago but still a busy night with 32 raffles ( and you didn’t have to wait very long to get a drink).
