Cabin, cash on the line in 2018 fish­ing con­test

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

Keen fish­er­men and women are be­ing en­cour­aged to get their rods or kon­tiki out and get their en­tries in the Te Puke Fish­ing Club’s big com­pe­ti­tion.

Held over Labour Week­end, the fish­ing tour­na­ment is in its 21st year and has some fan­tas­tic cash prizes up for grabs.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Stan Steel said en­tries were open with $1000 for the heav­i­est snap­per, $1000 for the heav­i­est trout as well as cash prizes for all win­ning fish in­clud­ing king­fish and ka­hawai cat­e­gories.

Mr Steel said en­tries cost $50 per an­gler and there was also a fan­tas­tic spot prize of a brand new Hounds cabin val­ued at $10,000, or al­ter­na­tively $5000 in cash.

“They will have the choice of the cabin or cash.”

But Mr Steel said in or­der to take out that prize the win­ner must be present at the prize­giv­ing which starts from noon at the club on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 21.

“There will be live mu­sic, a bar and food avail­able.”

An an­gler brief­ing would take place on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 18 with the fi­nal en­tries to be re­ceived by 9.30pm.

Fish­ing was sched­uled for Oc­to­ber 19 and 20.

Tick­ets could be pur­chased from the Te Puke Club on 573 9709 or Sportsworld Te Puke.

Mr Steel said the com­pe­ti­tion could not go ahead with­out sup­port from its gen­er­ous spon­sors.

“We have many spon­sors and we will be pro­mot­ing their goods and ser­vices over the week­end.”
