Hi Everyone,

Ok things are changing a little this month, we've ran the old format for over five years so it's time for a change, two in fact :y:

Firstly we are moving away from the public vote to a judging panel, the panel will be made up of the sponsors, the moderators, and myself. This change is to try and remove any swaying of the votes by popularity of the angler.

The second change is also quite dramatic, we are dropping the requirement of the need to catch a fish to enter, we are aware that depending on the month, the weather, or your physical location, that not everyone is in a position to catch that "monster" fish to out fish everyone else. There are some anglers who given where they fish have no ability to catch a 20lb Snapper but they can haul in that beast of a Blue Cod, or may be your may be you are ecstatic about your first Gurnard from the kayak even if it's barely legal you did it and you are proud of it - and so you should be! As I said you don't even need to land a fish, just enter the photo you took of that sunrise / sunset / perfect oily sea / birds working / kayaks lined up on the beach / what ever it is that gives you the pleasure from kayak fishing and share it with the rest of the community :y:

The Rules:

Competition Dates: August 1st to August 31st

1. Only one entry per member

2. Multiple entries are allowed over the month but only your last entry will be put into the pool for judging, 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 panel will only judge your entry from the 30th.

All entries should include any or all of the following information (along with a picture)

Name / Username of Angler:
Fish Type:
Length:
Date/Time of Capture/Photo:
Location of Capture/Photo:
Type of Lure/Bait used:
Comments: (optional)

The judging panel is made up of the sponsors, KFNZ moderators, and KFNZ owner Mental.

The prize for the best fish this month is again a great prize from K-Labs
The runner up will receive a selection of goodies from Top Catch Whangarei

These are excellent prizes, 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!

Good luck everyone!

Name / Username of Angler: NJay (I can't remember Nick's forum handle)

Fish Type:: NZ rock lobster (crayfish yum yum yum, to be all technical about it)

Length: various

Date/Time of Capture/Photo: 6 August 2014, morning

Location of Capture/Photo: Northland

Type of Lure/Bait used: gloved hands

Comments: Nick returned from England 3 days before this, was seriously fishing-deprived after being inland for months on a river whose only species is punts poled by students such as himself. In his first 6 days back, he caught crays, snapper, kahawai, kingfish, a trev and a JD. Now he's gotta find work....

Name / Username of Angler: miniyak
Fish Type: Ky
Length: which one?
Date/Time of Capture/Photo: sunday 24th august
Location of Capture/Photo: Mangawhai
Type of Lure/Bait used: TROUT lure
Comments: I was on a mission to fill the smoker with some KY but they just ignored every bait and softbait I threw at them, Pissed off I found an old Trout lure in my tackle box and thought "what the hell" and attached it to the lightest gear I have (Catana Nano XG with Exage 2500 :inlove: ) Ive never had that much fun fishing for kahawai
18 kahawai were landed but only 11 went home to the smoker and all but 3 were given out to friends and family
