Juniors Tournament Bike Still Up For Grabs!!

The Arthurs Emporium Tutukaka Junior Tournament opened the Whangarei Deep Sea Anglers Club’s crazy Tournament season on January 7th & 8th with some 63 keen Junior Anglers taking to sea in great anticipation.  Our ever generous Sponsors, Arthurs Emporium, yet again providing great incentive with three Motorbikes up for grabs!!
Two of the motorbikes were awarded – The Quad bike for the “Small Fry Angler Most Points overall Marlin, Shark and Yellowtail” went to Fraser Donaldson on “Bwana II” with 135 points for his 5 tagged Makos and 1 tagged Yellowtail.
The Motorbike for the “Junior Angler Most Points Shark Section” went to Lauren Ashby fishing on “Bwana II” with 125 points for her 5 tagged Makos.
The third Motorbike for the “Junior Angler Most Points Marlin Section” could not be awarded so ……………..another popular decision by our Sponsors sees the remaining Motorbike held over to be awarded to the first Whangarei Deep Sea Anglers Club Junior or Small Fry Angler to get TWO Marlin (tagged or landed) for the 2016/2017 Season.  If this is not achieved by the end of the 2016/2017 season, the motorbike will be awarded to the first Junior or Small Fry angler to have tagged or landed a Marlin after this Junior Tournament.

Wdsac Junior Team for the 16/17 Season

We are seeking nominations from Juniors who are interested in representing our Club as part of our Junior Team for the 16/17 season, including representing us at the prestigious Bay of Islands International (light tackle) Yellowtail Tournament in mid June 2017, fishing against Junior teams from both NZ & Australia.

We would like to have the team selected as soon as possible so that we have sufficient time to ensure those chosen will be able to fulfil their tasks as Junior Ambassadors of our Club.  This will also allow time for the team to get to know each other and participate in fund raising and other duties as required.

So if you are a Junior Angler, or you know a Junior Angler, and think you/they will be able to fulfil the desired role, please send an expression of interest to the Club Office by Friday 27th January 2017.

Please note that nominees must be 16 years or under as at 18th June 2017 and need to provide us with a few words explaining why they feel they should be chosen to represent their Club.
