Yepp it's back for 2017. No firm details yet as we need sign off from the committee but we have a date! June 11.

It will be (a little) bigger and better Big smile

Tickets will be on sale in a little over a week. We finally have a system in place for on line sales. We'll also have them at a few tackle shops.
 
Wayno, I'm with Skunk on that! I know you can drink rum too Big smile

In no way would the gift of dark hearty liquids influence the Weighmasters Kitno, but    as a gesture of appreciation of their hosting ness it can't hurt..

Oh, and following won't work cause I've really no idea where I am going

???????????????????????????
 
Sounds rather contradictory ... or maybe you mean that you are "working on" the prospect of having certain days off.
Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn't it be called double V?

Bazza, Wekafins means he is trying to get the days off - try to keep up! Big smile

Skoti, forecast is looking perfect, 3 inches of frost, variable winds and clear glassy water. The gurnard will be spawning on the 24th of June so they will be going hard out putting on condition. Wacko

Seems to me that there may be a little guessing on that statement. Clear waters on the big muddy?

Plus I have heard that spawning is starting on the 22nd this year

Barrie Barrie, you are typing double double.  How are you going to bait your hooks? How are you going to bait your hooks? Maybe two baits per hook hook? Clown

No guess work at all Barrie because I am Dr Gurnard.

Anyway, enough nonsense. In a couple of weeks I'll be posting up my latest gurnard tips, 100% honest account of how I target them because I'm an honest fisherman like everyone else (I thought you said enough nonsense Smudge?)

I know I've posted all this stuff many times before and much if it will be the same but there's always a new trick or two to work on.


So once some details have been confirmed I'll be sharing on the CSFC Facebook page my fishing.net.nz report with my suggestions on how to target gurnard along with a couple of proven spots including a winning location or two from previous years on this and other comps.

Here's a link to my latest fishing report
