*   Cookie Phillips signed his son-in-law up before their fishing trip and guess what??? they weighed in a 12.3kg snapper later that day. (27.12lbs) Congratulations Johnson off 'Specialist'.

That is going to take a lot to beat...

 

 

 

*   Retired Northland MP Shane Jones weighed in a huge 305.5kg Blue Marlin but he was not a club member so his awesome fish will not be recognised.... 

 

 

*   A huge Humpback Whale and acres of Dolphins with their young have been seen recently out of the Hokianga. 

 

*   BOAT  INSURANCE - Through the NZ Fishing Council, Club Marine Insurance is making the following offer - Insure your boat with Club Marine and have 6% of the premium paid to your fishing club.  

 

*   Happy New Year and what a catch!  Young Charlotte Sutton has been fishing with her Uncle Mike Brenstrum in Bluey. 

  

 

 

*   Bluey is back in touch with the snapper. Ethan & Charlotte caught their 

first ever snappers and their smiles show how delighted they both are. Congratulations. A 4kg snapper would make most people smile. 

 

 

*   New club member, Daniel Green, weighed in his first Kingfish at 10.3kg.  Well done Daniel. Hopefully a Marlin next time. 

 

 

*   Mike, a very keen land based fisherman from Kerikeri can be seen each week
