ITM Trade Club Fishing Competition

ITM Trade Club Fishing Competition


Start time: Thursday 8:00am (15 March)
End time: Sunday 8:00pm (18 March)


Join us in March 2018 on Matt Watson’s home turf of Whangaroa to compete in the annual ITM Fishing Competition. Located in the Far North, sandwiched between Kerikeri to the South and Mangonui to 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 its snapper or kingfish that really get your rod jigging, you can bring your trailer boat and fish for them until your heart’s content. If you’ve had your fill of filleting snapper, you can head out into the wide 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 a prize giving and dinner on Saturday night, where Matt Watson, host of the ITM Fishing Show will be on hand to compare fishing stories with you.
