Hi All,

Standard rules apply, please see the competition page

Competition Dates: June 1st to June 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!

I have a spot down here where I can get the smaller specimens that is so close to shore I am still able to read the numberplate on my car. These ones are bit more of a paddle. Should load the yaks up & come fish down here with us sometime.

Definitely my favourite eating fish!

They hang on the deeper reefs - the spearos get a heap off hunters bank down here. This one was out of a huge school that went from 5m at the top of the school to the bottom at 45m and took a couple of minutes to pass under me. By the time I dealt to him I couldn't find the school again as the current was honking.

Have seen one landed of the Kapiti coast once, and do remember the fight it put up for a smaller fish. Very well done, and a very nice eating fish indeed. Already have my vote (unless something more exotic shows up).
But it aint orange, just saying...

well done on the catch and release top fish

sorry with out exact GPS co- ordinates will not be able to vote :lol:
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.
