Hi Team,

this is just a quick preliminary announcement as we get all the detail in place, but here's a spring kayak fishing competition that should appeal to many. For those who have previously been involved with the Viking Kayaks Invitational, this event will take it's place.

NORTHLAND KAYAK FISHING CLASSIC 2016

*SPONSORED BY VIKING KAYAKS*

11th, 12th & 13th of November 2016
11th - 7PM briefing
12th - 5AM start fishing!
13th - 3PM weigh in

Whangarei based but allowing kayakers to fish anywhere north of Mangawhai Heads on the east coast, and Pouto Point on the west coast. You will have ALL Saturday and most of Sunday to explore Northland!!

IMPORTANT - only one weigh in Sunday @ 3PM.

The cancellation of other 2016 kayak fishing events in Auckland, Coromandel, and Northland has left a gap that will make the 2016 Northland Kayak Fishing Classic the place to be for the start of the next exciting season.

Further information and links to competition details will be announced here, on Facebook and Viking Kayaks NZ website shortly.

This is an open comp for all kayakers, Viking Kayaks have been kind enough to come on as lead sponsor. So long as it's paddled, peddled, or poled it's all good (no sails, motors, outboards, or being towed. No dropping from helicopters either :tmi: :lol: )

Yahoo!!! Bring it on. Big ups to Viking Kayaks for the sponsorship and everybody who is part of the organisation team. Love the "only one weigh in" - means exploring parts of the country you haven't been too is not a disadvantage if not within driving distance of weigh-in. Can't wait!

Ohh this sound great. I'm new to kayak fishing and would love to take part. It's even better that my nana has a bach on the Kaipara harbour just north of Pouto Point. So my accommodation is already sorted.
