Maverix 6KG 2002 International Tournament

Remember, the tournament starts in

What a Tournament for 2002!

With Pah Farm Kawau Island now firmly in the sights of most anglers as a destination to fish from it is only natural to expect the 2002 Maverix international fishing tournament to based from here.

The old rustic style of the venue with its charm and marina facility gives the event a real fishy feel.

The Anglers started arriving early Thursday afternoon catching live baits and preparing for the game ahead. With The briefing out of the way and the national anthem proudly heralded from the venue all were primed for the challenge. Slipping away in the darkness most of the teams chanced there arm for the early morning shot on the big snapper leaving the Kingfish challenge for the latter part of the day fishing.

This year was the year of the Kingfish with several teams excelling in their catches back defending their title was team Karian landing a host of good size Kingfish With Vincent Fong having the best luck in the Tournament snatching the title as the overall Kingfish winner for 2002.

Team Karian also clinched the Kingfish jackpot for the second year running.

Whilst Graeme Gower on the other hand had a cunning plan all of his own, fishing from a small vessel he managed to catch a superb 11.595kilo Snapper wiping out his competition he claimed the overall heaviest Snapper.

Bill Bathurst (Alias: one Fish) managed a smaller kingfish claiming a place but not rivaling his previous record of 23kilos.

Wayne Campbell and Dennis Williams of Team Willy Away cleaned up in the snapper jackpot pocketing a tidy $2000.

All the Anglers enjoyed the spirit of the Tournament with superb catering and friendship of fellow minded anglers. Vowing to return for the 2003 event.
