Maverix 6KG 2004 International Tournament

Remember, the tournament starts in

What a Tournament for 2004!

After last years showing competitors rocked up to Pah Farm with one objective in mind, to get their hands on the elusive Maverix trophies. With everyone in good spirits the national anthem sounded out over Bon Accord Harbour setting the scene.

With 120 entrants there was never going to be any room for a mistake. All eyes were on the kingfish section as per the previous years of domination by team Karian.

Once again the weather was reasonable as the teams departed for the secret spots. Whilst many would venture far and wide to the Hen & Chickens islands, Gt Barrier, Mokohinaus. Some teams like Team Saracen took the cunning plan option of staying close to base preferring to fish grounds where they new kingfish were frequenting.

This meant that we would have a challenge on our hands .

Some of the older hands like Jock Mac Kenzie who is cunning as a fox took the stealth option, slipping away in Sprey his trusty steed to the coast of Gt Barrier. Fishing in the weed with big baits and a strong burley trail.

This two teams both had a vision and new exactly what they wanted.

Whilst the other teams headed all over the region checking out all the other respective hot spots.

Troy Fell, Darren Werner, Graeme Frost ( Frosty) concentrated on Kingfish live baits were the order of the day producing fish 13.65kilos, 17.60kilos, and a stunning 21.15kilos by eventual winner Graeme Frost.

The overall average Kingfish went to Wayne Campbell, Team Stella 15.75kilos

Jock Mac Kenzie, waisted no time on day one he made his statement delivering a 12.890kilo Snapper a new tournament record , whilst his nearest competitor Andre Vos weighed a very nice 10.365kilo fish

Team Sprey just cleaned out nearest rival Team Makaira with average weight of snapper 14.113kilos whilst Makaira's total was 11.512kilos.

With so many good snapper and kingfish weighed the atmosphere was electric with praise going to all the winning anglers. The catering at the Tournament has only got better with time with caterers pulling out the stops to make this a success.
