Hi All,

Standard rules apply, please see the competition page

Competition Dates: August 1st to August 31st

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>>> To be decided...

The runner up will receive a selection of Berkley products supplied by Tagit

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!

Hey guys,

Been a member for a while but never really had a reason to post much, until now. This Guy caught me a little by surprise last saturday in a secret coromadel snapper spot, on a dead bait and took about 35 mins to land on 6 kg line. still buzzing now, first kingi on the kayak and now fully focused to target more. Anyways enough with all this heres the pic.
As you can see im stoked!

Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

Those kings put the rest to shame - the biggest I have caught on a yak are well below that and were the scrap of a lifetime. Great effort, yep thats definitely gonna be hard to beat, unless it has a stick on its face!
