Entries are starting to flow in now, remember the limit is 250 entries and we got 209 last year and it grows bigger each year. It would be a damn shame to miss out eh? Save $20 by entering before Feb. :rock:

I don't have a partner either yet, planning to camp possibly at this stage, fish out of Otaki, with average skills to be honest.

Shamus did pretty well, he fished the same spot I did the last comp he attended. His mate got an estimated 30 pound snapper into his lap then it kicked off and gone :headbang: Shame he hasn't been the last couple of years he was always good value and MC'ed the prize giving last time he was here. The Stealths will be out hunting down tuna :rock:
