Maverix 6KG 2003 International Tournament

Remember, the tournament starts in

What a Tournament for 2003!

With Great weather and high expectations competitors turned out the Pah Farm Kawau Island once again. The tournament now gaining more kudos on the fishing calendar the desire for anglers to get their name on the trophies is even greater.

For the 38 teams this years event was a bit of a challenge with very good fish caught but not too many (horses) so to speak of.

Although through previous events and all the chatter from the competitors the battle lines were drawn and the anglers all primed this was surely going to be a great event.

The first day was a bit slow in the fishing stakes but this all changed on the second day.

With good fish coming from all around the outer Hauraki Gulf the teams and individual places were being fiercely fought over with the average snapper weight coming in at 3.9kilos this fish were all very solid fish with the competition wide open all eyes were on the last teams to weigh.

Grant Dixon from Team Fishing News With his Buddy Mark Kitteridge came in the final stages on the weigh and slam dunked the competition with a 10.24kilo fish, just nudging out Ian Doyles 10.22kilo fish Weigh master Dave was challenged to weigh the two winning fish again as there were so close to each either, but the first result was the correct one. Thank goodness for technology.

This year was certainly the year for Kingfish, local motorsport celebrity Bob Mc Murray weighed in a superb specimen as did Steven Ross and Team Purrla but Lane Roberts had his turn on team Saracen weighing in a superb 20.14kilo Kingfish. clinching the overall placing.

With national fishing celebrity,Bill Hohepa on hand to keep everyone honest, Mark Kitteridge, Grant Dixon & Mark Bridger took out the team snapper section claiming a serious amount of prizes.

Once again the spirit of the Tournament was outstanding as competitors made new friends and competed on an even playing field, proving there is need for this type of Tournament.

We will be back in 2004 with another exciting event
