Hi All,

Standard rules apply, please see the competition page

Competition Dates: February 1st to February 28th

1. Only one fish per entry

2. Multiple entries are allowed over the month but only your last entry will be put into the pool for voting, this means that the Snapper you catch on the 5th you put up, then on the 20th you catch a bigger Snapper and you post that, and on the 30th you manage to catch a bigger one still, the poll will only contain your entry from the 30th.

All entries should include the following information (along with a picture of the fish)

Name / Username of Angler:
Fish Type:
Length:
Date/Time of Capture:
Location of Capture:
Type of Lure/Bait used:
Comments: (optional)

The prize for the best fish this month is again a great prize from K-Labs: this month’s prize>>> And it's pretty special as it's one of their NEW rods!
The runner up will receive a selection of goodies from Top Catch Whangarei

These are excellent prizes again this month, so lets show our support and lets see how many entries we can put in between us this month, remember it's not always size that counts, it's a public vote for the best fish, the biggest fish doesn't always win!

Good luck everyone!

This is my PB (to date)

Name / Username of Angler: tsoprano (Hamish Barry)
Fish Type: Kingfish
Length: 95cm
Date/Time of Capture: 1.00pm 16/02/2013
Location of Capture: Scott’s Point, Mahurangi Harbour
Type of Lure/Bait used: 5" New penny Jerk shad, on 3/0 1/2 Oz Jighead

Comments: (optional)
This is my first kingfish, so was quite a thrill for me, especially on the light SB gear I was using:
2 - 4kg Berkley rod, 3000 spinning reel, 15lb power pro.
It took a bit of work to get in but I was a happy chappy once I did.

I actually do need a new one mate. On the way home from waiheke with the rods in the car, the tip of my sb setup got caught on Fletchers leg as he got out of the car and snapped below the second eye.

WOW! While I love the kingie shots, this is the first I've see of a flounder line caught! Well done!!!

Now comes down to (so far at least) the big fish or the rarely caught fish...

Gets better than that - I'm fairly sure that's a Sole rather than a Flounder ;)

I did think it wasn't quite the right diamond shape to be a flounder but hey.
