    I was planning on entering the fishing club in Ashburton a while back, but never really got around to it. My granddad is a member, but seems to think the surfcasting section isn’t very active now all the members are getting older etc

    So I suppose it’s the usually 7am registration time? What about entry fee and start of actual competition?

    Your allowed as many rods as you want just no long lines or kites,

    I think there prize for 1st,2nd,3rd and most species

    $10 or $15 entry (I know its cheaper than the others)

    As soon as you register you can start i think yeah 7am

    I can see people fishing a lot of rods then, especially since it’s a competiton. Hopefully people wont fish more than 2.

    I’ll probably fish 3 as well, except I only have two rod stands, might use my older rod for mullet/kahawai. My rods aren’t in the best condition anymore either, after getting slammed in car doors, being stood on by people at the pier, and I slammed one rod on the pier bar when overhead casting.

    I might get some burley together for the competiton, since I’ve already got a bucket of old red cod, and a skate in the freezer.

    Weather is looking crap all week, including the weekend. Southerlies/Easterlies and lots of rain, so I don’t know what the conditions will be like at the comp. Might not even be worth going. I wonder if it was really bad conditions would they call it off for another date? I wouldn’t want to go all the way there and find it’s not even on, especially if the conditions aren’t fishable. I was hoping to go for a fish at the Pier on Friday night as well, so hopefully the weather changes.

    Well at least if you go on Saturday you can post and say what the conditions were like. But then again the sea can still change a lot over night.
