PLEASE NOTE : FRIDAY 6th MARCH – Stoney Creek One Base 2020 – FRIDAY – Please note conditions are at the upper limits of our acceptable range. Fishing is ON today and under a WEATHER CAUTION with vessels fishing west of White Island requiring to assess conditions for suitability of craft and crew. (Skippers responsibility) Please check in with VHF Ch3 Tauranga Game Base and log trip reports with Coastguard.
We are very lucky to have both STONEY CREEK and BAY INSURANCE BROKERS and the PORT OF TAURANGA back on board this years One Base. Welcome Smart Marine and A1 Renovations! Loads and loads of prizes and live music from KAOS for the prize giving.
A couple of changes this year after surveys finding that there was majority support for a change to Random Access. This has the end effect we hope of improving safety in the event allowing smaller craft to fish in less extreme conditions and return safely to the safest haven available. These teams will be expected to be at the Club with the entire team for check in prior to the start of the event. As well as this any fish to be returned to the weigh station must also follow the 24hr rule as well as bring the boat, fishing equipment and entire team involved in the capture of the fish.
Teams must be finalised and paid by close of business 25th Feb 2020. After this time there will be no additions and no refunds. Only changing the name of an angler for another will be accepted after this point.
