Hi All,

Standard rules apply, please see the competition page

Competition Dates: November 1st to November 30th

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!

Name: Batman
Fish Type: Trevally
Length: 65cm
Date/Time: 17th Nov 7.00am
Location: Onetangi Bay, 12 mtrs
Lure: Z Man new Penny 4" Streakz

An absolute horse of a Trevally, it stripped about 60 metres of braid on its first run and towed me all round the bay. I've never seen one so big outside the islands and I reckon it would definately sort out any GT that spilled it's pint :-).

The snapper in the photo are there for perspective - they're pretty much all over 50, as you can see by the hump head on the bigger one.

Name: Pete (Hughesey)
Fish Type: Snapper
Length: 21 Pound
Date/Time: 15th Nov, 7:30pm
Location: Papa Aroha, 20m
Lure: 5/8 Jig head, 4" grub

One way to beat a PB that I've had for a few years, so I've found out is to get rid of the expensive boat, buy a kayak, and get shown how to softbait properly (Cheers Milkey :y: ) Managed to smash my previous of 9 pound by an 11.5 pound snapper early in the day, then hit a 12 early evening, and finally get my hands on 'the illusive 20 pound Snapper'. It was 4 days ago and I've still got the same goofy grin on my face. Not bad at all for the 3rd time out on my new 'yak.
