This is just a quick announcement to say that the Northland Kayak Fishing Classic is on again in 2017, and we've set the dates at Saturday November 11 to Sunday November 12, with the briefing on Friday night (10th November).

A huge thanks to those who participated in the inaugural event; we all had fun and I even enjoyed being the organiser. There's been some cool feedback and we have quite a few enhancements already for next year. This is an event that will grow and become even better :y:

And in case anyone is wondering what the benchmark is for the next event, here's Rob Raven's 11.692kg (25.78lb) whopper that even eclipsed the kingfish caught in the event...

One improvement that you could make would be ordering a bit better weather than this years event :lol:
