ITM Fishing Competition Whangaroa
21st-24th March 2024
FISH WHANGAROA HARBOUR – MARLIN CAPITAL OF NZ!
We are pleased to be hosting this year’s event after last year’s cancellation due to Covid-19. We had an overwhelming response to the previous event with anglers trying to register for this year’s event as they were leaving so we thought we better do it again! It’s great to continue the ITM Trade Fishing Comp at Whangaroa, it is an amazing place to host the event and Far North ITM are pleased to be able to host other ITM stores and their customers this year.
We are pleased to announce that Matt Watson will back at this year with the Mongrel Pig Dogs.
There are some fantastic fishing grounds out there with plenty of potential spot X’s and we should expect some “reel” good fishing. No pressure but I'm looking forward to seeing some great catches come in.
ITM and suppliers have ensured there are some fantastic prizes on offer this year. So be sure to check the competition categories and plan your fishing for maximum impact. As always we are promoting sustainable fishing practices. So more points and greater prizes are on offer for tag and release than weighed fish.
Register your team, and join us in March 2024 for the annual ITM Trade Club Fishing Competition, Whangaroa.
OVER $15,000 IN PRIZES TO BE WON
Located in the Far North, between Kerikeri to the South and Mangonui in the North, Whangaroa is a safe, all-weather harbour and is the gateway to the Cavalli Islands.
Once again we will be awarding prizes for both sport and game fish caught during the tournament so there is an opportunity for everyone to get their hands on a share of the $15,000 prize pool. If it’s snapper or kingfish that really get your rod jigging, you can bring your trailer boat and fish for them to your heart’s content. If you’ve had your fill of filleting snapper, you can head out into the wild blue yonder in search of the heart-racing, adrenaline-pumping action of the Marlin fight—after all Whangaroa is the Marlin Capital of NZ!
After each stunning day of fishing, head back into the sheltered waters of Whangaroa Harbour. We’ll have the major prize giving and dinner on Saturday night.
