Thats because the pics used are not the actual fish weighed.

Hey guys.. Orty is putting the final touches to the Final results as we speak and will be posted here as soon as he is done (hopefully around lunchtime) .. we can share this pic from Matt (Liquid Lunch Kayak Fishing Team) with the winning snapper... just short of 12kgs!

(FYI - the images used in the results are just some from our stock files, sorry for any confusion )

Trev results are there.. why are the pics a prob? The point was to make sure updates got up as soon as we could for those that could not make the event and were wondering whats been happening :^) in short they were all we had access to at short notice due to poor reception for Justin at weigh in, txt or text emails where all that could be sent from location so that's all we had to work with. Weigh in images and others will be available soon..allowing people time to travel home. I have been running the updates from Auckland, That help Awondering? :-)

Great to see the results up so quickly :y:
It was another cracker comp that I enjoyed immensely even though for myself the fishing was to use a phrase " gay " !
Oh and I also managed to lose my ticket so missed out on a kayak as a spot prize :doh:
Already looking forward to the next round in Coromandel . :)

Thanks KK, ... Bad luck on the ticket but great you enjoyed, sounds like it was a good event from the feedback I have heard so far... you should buy extras for the Coromandel comp ;-)
