Z Pier News
Belated news of a Westhaven Marina Fishing Competition held last Saturday 1st April - we were given only 3 days notice of this event!! Free entry and food after the weigh-in at the New Zealand Yacht Squadron headquarters.
Congratulations to one of our regulars Fiona Morrissey who took out the prize for Most Fish Caught by a Lady Angler. Fiona's prize list included a Coastguard Membership for use on her personal boat, Tickets to the Auckland Boat Show, T-shirt, Jacket, Book and "lots of fishing bits and pieces". On a personal best level Fiona caught her biggest Snapper to date (50cms) and her first ever Trevally! Well done Fiona from the team at NZ Fishing Safaris.
Fishing was reportedly very slow by the other boatie competitiors but Fiona was happy to report that all 10 anglers aboard MV MANTARAY with Skipper Lance at the helm, all caught their quota that morning.
