LEGASEA  – For years we have been limited to raising awareness of the issues affecting our fisheries and coastal waters so it’s a real buzz to share with you our reform package – Rescue Fish.

Rescue Fish is our best endeavour to inspire change so our fisheries can become more abundant and we can enjoy a healthier marine environment. We understand change is difficult. That is why LegaSea is working with a range of organisations and individuals to discuss and debate the merits of reform and how Rescue Fish will benefit us and future generations of Kiwis.

CLUB UPDATE – WOW! The Club is really coming together, so thank you to all our wonderful sponsors that have made these improvements possible.
Dean Waddell from Pak N Save Cameron RoadTony Rich from Gerrand FlooringGreg Clarke from Hawridge DevelopmentsDoug Stewart from Higher Safe NZLee Hillier – BrushcraftSid Carter – Height 4 Hire,
Nick Shearman – Glass Art NZ

Also to our tireless helpers, of special note Doug Stewart, Ken Wilson, Ian Thomas, Lee Lawson, Alana Duncan, Kane DeRaat along with many others who have put in their own time and money to pull this job together.

THE PLAN – The Club will be hosting an OPEN DAY from 11am on Saturday 13th June.  We look forward to welcoming back our members in what is a very uncertain time for Clubs, hospitality and events.  With this in mind the Committee have proposed the Bar opening days be from Thursday – Saturday. Outside of these times members will be expected to be in the Club for the purpose of dining.  The restaurant Little Fish Cafe & Bistro therefore will be open Tuesday -Sunday. (with Sunday only being lunch service).

We also working on announcing a Snapper Tournament for late June, and our Marine Reflections Top Gun Challenge, plus a new event for the Blue Fin run is the new Tuna & Wreckfish Tournament will be in July so watch this space!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – We are in the final push to finish off what has been three weeks of flat our renovation. A massive thank you to our small team of helpers here, but now they would like a bit of assistance!  If you can spare some time helping out whether this be cleaning or Club improvements we would love to hear from you! Drop us a line 
Congratulations to local angler Darryl Russell off the vessel Nailed It with this Broadbill Swordfish weighing in at 155.20kgs through the Whakatane Sport Fishing Club.
A massive thank you to all of those people that donated towards the Club through this difficult period. This fund raised just over $5,000 that will certainly help cover some of the Club costs incurred over lock down. Just a reminder all of the labour and material cost for the renovation were all donated! It’s amazing what we can get done when the Club pulls together!
BACK TO FISHING! – Great swordfish to the Nailed It team weighed in down in Whakatane on Thursday. Congratualtions Darryl!  No such joy for the few boats that have been sword dropping out the front.  The bluenose fishing however has been working out well with some sizable fish being reported from the Mayor area the past week. Prior to the Queens Birthday weather we have seen some really nice reports of both snapper and tarakihi so its pleasing to see some nice table fish on offer after the lockdown period.  While the Club is still closed we can weigh fish for you. Please call Roly 021 702248 or Kane De Raat 021508 833 and we will arrange a weigh master for you. Also remember vhf channel 3 is the Club’s VHF channel and its there to be used to share information and stay in touch with one another and stay safe. TIGHT LINES!

LEVEL THREE LOCKDOWN LANDBASED TOURNAMENT RESULTS

2020 LEVEL THREE LOCKDOWN TOURNAMENT RESULTS

Its been an interesting ol time alright! As we move into Level two hopefully we leave level three behind us for good! At least this time has allowed us to chase a few fish, spend time with our bubble people and a few you even won some cash!

The comp was spawned from really the frustrations of not being able to get out on the water and for many of us returning to shore fishing as been a pile of laughs and fun. The comp was run from Saturday to Saturday and attracted 59 anglers, 19 of whom were fishing in the kids section.  It was important that everyone was familiar with the Lockdown rules as the TSFC has been in absolute support of the efforts to keep out Covid 19.

We couldn’t believe it that after 6 weeks of near perfect weather that the next big storm decided to hit right in the middle of our lockdown comp.  The bad weather mid week didn’t even phase a few hardy souls who still managed to get out there with a little help of Mum and Dad.  The lockdown has at least has provided for some great family bonding!

 

There were some really good fish caught and we reckon a landbased tournament is something the Club should definitely carry on with!

A massive thankyou to our amazing sponsors  GENERATION HOMES, DECORO, INSIGNIA DESIGN, DAVISTA DESIGN who without there support we would not have any cash prizes.

2019 DECORO SNAPPER KINGFISH TOURNAMENT REPORT

2019 DECORO SNAPPER KINGFISH TOURNAMENT REPORT

The Snapper Kingfish comp for some reason always feels like the first tournament for the year. Spring is in the air, the days are getting warmer and longer and the kingies are starting to bust up bait on the surface, plus there always seem to be a few really big snapper around.

The team at Decoro this year emphasised a real desire to run an event that was fun and had as little impact on the resource as possible.  To achieve this we revisited the tournament prizes schedule and basically redistributed the value into those Measure and Release categories.  Not only this we expanded the M&R sections ensuring that everyone who came in the top five for both snapper and kingfish walked away with a nice Penn combo as well as a bunch of tackle and merchandise.  Still having weigh prizes ensures that anglers can still keep fish if they wish and gave anglers flexibility with fish that didn’t survive capture could also be submitted. They just aren’t worth as much at prize giving time.  It’s a formula that really does work.  The fact we had 123 anglers turn up last weekend to essentially release many of their best fish speaks volumes as to how seriously our anglers value the resource we have!

The weather again this year was a pretty tough call with some conflicting forecasting and the potential for wind on the last day of the event. After waiting for the final updates as a group we decided that the weather window looked like we could comfortably get the comp underway but with the wind due sometime after lunch on Sunday we pulled the weigh station hours forward with final weigh time at 4pm.

There was only one crew through the weigh station on Saturday and that was the team off Marlin with young Ashton Edwards weighing a beautiful 5.8kg Snapper, this one later claiming third place in the weigh snapper category and heaviest fish for a junior.  Well done Ashton!

Day two turned on the calm weather and with that the boat ramp carparks looked absolutely chocka!  The majority of reports seemed to be suggesting slow fishing out there, however there were rumours abound of some very large snapper being caught so this predictably made the weigh in all the more exciting.

Only one kingfish made the length for a legal weigh at 1m long, and it was Mark Armistead claiming first place in this section with a 15.8kg kingy.  Other than this all other kingfish were submitted in the M&R category, 22 in total and some nice one too with Stu Roberts fishing on Nailed it picking up the best of them at 114cm (Smart Marine grid) and also winning the Dave Foley Memorial Trophy for the longest Kingfish.  The longest fish for a junior was claimed this year by Mason De Raat with a respectable 87cm kingfish.

In the Snapper weigh section Tony Brown managed to pip the competition with a 6.36kg fish and Jamie Lee just behind with a 5.84kg. In total only 12 snapper weighed this year compared to 27 fish submitted in the M&R category.

This year it was heart-warming to see so many large snapper being caught and returned to the water to fight another day. The top four in the Snapper M&R section were over 70cm, the biggest of these a whooping 85cm beast (est 12kg) caught by David Wallace fishing on board Free Flo, this one out of the Generation Homes sponsors grid!

The final accolades were shared by the team on board In Pursuit winning the Decoro Team Trophy. This one was for the longest combined length of a Kingfish and Snapper. It was close with the In Pursuit team clocking up 175.5cm, Free Flo 174cm and Nailed It on 172cm! Well done to all of you!

Finally thanks to all of our anglers that turned out and supported the event and in turn supported the Club and Sponsors – Decoro, Rock Gas Tauranga, Penn Tackle and Heartland Homes!  This is one very cool event, made all the better for the people involved and supporting it!

We can’t wait for next year!
