“Whakapirau Catch” Fishing Contest 2019 Results……. by Jean Avery | Jan 6, 2019 | Info | 0 comments Saturday 5 January 2019 was a perfect day for fishing from a boat….. ….or off the wharf…… Registration desk – with the three historic Whakapirau Cruising Club trophies on display. Winners in each category received a trophy, certificate, chocolates and a Coastguard raffle ticket The fish were certainly jumping (one boat caught 35 snapper)…..but the weigh-in showed there weren’t many big specimens around… The spectators enjoyed a relaxing wait for the announcement of the winners…. The winner of the Men’s Challenge was Luke Chappell, Oxford Street with a 1.93kg kahawai . Well done, Luke! Huiping Li, The Strand took out the Ladies Challenge with a 1.12kg Snapper. Excellent result, Huiping! The Children’s Challenge was won by Brody Hume, Rigby Street with a 0.87g snapper. Congratulations, Brody!
