Michelle Wed­ding (hold­ing rod, third from back right) cel­e­brates with fam­ily and friends af­ter claim­ing one of the two ma­jor cash prizes of $10,000 up for grabs in the 2018 Houhora One Base af­ter reel­ing in this 222.2kg blue mar­lin last Thurs­day. Her boat Gio­vanni also won the team prize while Marty Doody won the Ellis-Ut­ting Tro­phy for be­ing the skip­per of the boat which pro­duced the event’s heav­i­est bill­fish. It wasn’t the most mem­o­rable One Base in the club’s his­tory with very few fish of note while con­di­tions out at sea were un­com­fort­able for many. Re­port to come.

CASHED UP:

LO­CAL CON­TENT: Kaitaia mates Mar­cus Barker and Riki Green were rapt at plac­ing first and fifth re­spec­tively in the male divi­sion of the half marathon, in what was the first Te Houtaewa Chal­lenge for both.
