Weather af­fects fish catch

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Poor weather damp­ened com­peti­tor num­bers but not boat­ies’ spir­its in Plim­mer­ton Boat­ing Club’s re­cent fish­ing and div­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The start on March 24 was de­layed for the 100 com­peti­tors and the sec­ond day’s ac­tiv­i­ties had to be can­celled al­to­gether due to strong swells.

The fish­ing proved to be hard, with only five snap­per caught, among them one fine spec­i­men of 7.73 kilo­grams landed by Bruce Odam on his boat Liq­uid Fix. Odam re­ceived the grand prize for his catch, a South Is­land cruise.

A good num­ber of ter­ak­ihi, blue cod, ka­hawai, but­ter­fish and cray­fish were also landed and bought by an ea­ger public at a fish auc­tion.

Foul weather friend: Bruce Odam took out grand prize at Plim­mer­ton Boat­ing Club’s fish­ing and div­ing com­pe­ti­tion last month with this 7.73 kilo snap­per.
