Hi All,

Standard rules apply, please see the competition page

Competition Dates: March 1st to March 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!

Bit of a surprise after 11 minutes when it surfaced grabbed a breath and then went down again, had it on for 31 minutes until i could cut the line next to the join as i had 9kg braid on that rod. Trying to get a better photo off the film but it only surfaced when the sun was behind it.

Comments:
Caught during the Taranaki Classic.
This was my first Tuna and what a blast to catch. All the blood was a bit concerning as there were plenty of sharks about the day before,
thankfully i didnt see any this day.
Also first time fishing the west coast so a big learning curve for me. will be taking some bigger gear for next year.
(P.S Its not the Rudd i was using for snapper bait, he ended up getting chopped by something that didnt want to be caught)
