Got this thought from a YouTube video. First one back to the beach with a single fish of a designated species (obviously legal size), wins plus second and third places. Adds a time and tactics element. Snapper would be the ideal for the North Island, but it could be whatever.

Btw, I've subscribed to this guy's videos and he just did a few as a visitor to NZ.

I quite like that idea.

Monte Carlo start from the beach would generate some entertainment for spouses and partners anyway, The video could rival the SA surfski launch carnage on YouTube

Great idea! I like.

If we could somehow persuade Viking, Rob Fort and Mental to throw in one of their fine kayaks as a prize I'm in!

Hint, hint. Wink wink ;) :lol:
