Hi All,

Standard rules apply, please see the competition page

Competition Dates: October 1st to October 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!

nice photo and fish Boss Man (Mental)
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.

Fish Type: Squid
Length: long!
Weight: HEAVY! ;)
Date/Time of Capture:4th Oct 2013
Location of Capture: Coromandel
Type of Lure/Bait used: Pilchard straylined then a quick flick over to a squid jig & BOOM!
Comments: Felt weight on the strayline that was out. Wound it up to see two brown shapes drop it. Let the pillie sink back down and the came zooming back. Tried getting them to the net then ended up throwing out a squid jig & as soon as it sank I was on.
