Hi All,

Standard rules apply, please see the competition page

Competition Dates: December 1st 2013 to January 31st 2014

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!

Thanks for posting the comp Hainesy, as we had missed the December comp I've combined the two months so we now have a December / January comp, and I've got those good buggers at Ocean Kayak to stump up with a prize too - they've put up a Big Catch seat - so we will have three prizes for the comp too.

Really looking forward to seeing what people have been catching over the break :y:
Phoenix Kayaks - Hornet
Stealth - Evolution 465
Ramco - Fishmaster 580 My BIG kayak!
...and the countless other kayaks I've owned

your looking good for 63 mate must be all that paddling and diet of fresh fish :rofl:
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.

Yeah the nail Polish is not a usual thing, honest ... My 2 daughters won a bet with me, and got my fingernail for a week, forgot I had it on.
Nice colour tho!
