19th annual Fishing Comp

We had a great turnout at our 19th Surtees annual Fishing Competition! 270 anglers and over 56 boats went out of Whakatane on the first weekend in March and enjoyed a great time together. 

For the first time since 2019 we were hosted again by the Whakatane Sport Fishing Club - the bar behaved, the weather was fishable and the Prizes stacked up to the amazing amount of over$78,000. 

The largest Kingfish was an impressive 112cm, whilst the winning Trevally got up to 58cm! Even with some harsh conditions on the first day, most anglers send in some fish and had a great time. 

We are already looking forward to the 20th annual Fishing Competition - back in Whakatane!
