What a great start to the 2020 Whangarei Deep Sea Anglers Club’s tournament season!! A record number of 93 Junior and Small Fry anglers joined the Arthurs Emporium Tutukaka Junior Tournament on 11th & 12th January. Our very generous sponsors Arthurs Emporium once again provided great incentives for the kids to get out there and have fun, with a Quad bike, two iPhone X’s and not one but three 40” Panasonic TV’s up for grabs!!!
What a successful weekend it was – with a pending new Small Fry Club and NZ record Yellowfin Tuna and a great overall tally of 2 tagged Yellowtail Kingfish, 6 tagged Sharks (Including 4 Blue and 2 Mako Shark), 1 landed Snapper, 1 landed Yellowfin Tuna, 4 tagged Striped Marlin, and 2 Landed Striped Marlin. Not to mention the “drops” and the fish that unfortunately did not qualify for the tournament.
A big thank you to all of our very generous Sponsors – Electronic Navigation Ltd and Furuno, Foreign Exchange, Offshore Rods, Salt Water Connection, the Goodman Family and the Brothers-in-Law (Doc Mayhew, Scotty Rinkin & Gary Whetton). And as always it has to be a very Special BIG thanks to our very Special Sponsors Toby & Arthur Brasting from Arthurs Emporium!!
