Final Results 2018 Comp

Overview of 2018 comp

This year we had reasonable weather all comp with 15-20 knot northwesterlies on Friday and Saturday and 5-10 knots on Sunday. It was particularly good for surfcasting the south coast and not too cold (compared to whats its been like lately). There was virtually no swell on the south coast.

On Friday with a nice 5-10 knot forecast in the morning it was all go on the west and south coast. Unfortunately the wind got up straight away to 15/20 knots and it was uncomfortable fishing out wide. No hapuka were caught but some big cod, tarakihi, elephantfish and gurnard were weighed in. Saturday was pretty much the same and a few surfcasters weighed in the odd spotty shark, kahawai and red cod. Steve Brown caught the fish of the comp, a 17.3kg kingfish off Point Gordon. It was a particularly good catch fishing on 8kg line in his 4mtr tinnie in lumpy conditions.

Sundays forecast was again 15-20 knots but it was 5-10 knots most of the day.

On the forcast I restricted fishing (same as Friday pm and all day Saturday) to the harbour and local south coast as well as in the leigh of Kapiti Island.       

As the surfcasters came back from the Wairarapa it was obvious the moki were not biting this weekend.

Hokianga Morunga was shore fisherman of the comp weighing in a 3.25kg kahawai, a 2.25kg red cod and 1.45kg moki taking out all three of those sections. He fished the Spit and Corner creek with his mate Mathew Renata.

Steve Brown was boat fisherman of the weekend taking heaviest trevally, kingfish and 2nd heaviest tarakihi.

It was great to have good strong kids and junior sections this year with some nice fish caught there
