Hi All,

Standard rules apply, please see the competition page

Competition Dates: May 1st to May 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>>> 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!

Hey
Steve Radich user name Sradich
Thought I better put my catch up caught 4th May around 8am off Mowhanau Beach north of Wanganui on 15lb braid with soft bait. Weighed in at 22lb 94cm long.
Getting mounted for the lounge costs $950 will put some pictures up when finished but won't be until December. Caught off my Prowler 4.7 Ultra, 25 min tussle including a good dip on the way back in haha,

Fish : 36cm Blue cod, crumbed, then pan fried served with new potatoes, peas, sweet corn.

Nice. Although there must be something to say about you SI boys forking fish :tmi:
Anyway, looks like it was a mint day down there.

As a side: Im not one to generally iki my cod, but read somewhere here it still pays to do it, so yesterday I did it. It took about 1 minute for the Blue Cod to become an Albino Cod :lol: Have seen the loss of colour plenty of times before in cod, but this was something else. wish I had the good sense to take a photo now.
