Kahawai Comp 2017

Well done to Bob Bevege winning the draw for first prize. The club would like to thank all competitors and sponsors for their participation, even though we had to cancel the event for safety reasons dues to the extreme weather.

All prizes reverted to a lucky draw system after the event was cancelled at 10am. No fish had been caught at that stage and it was decided to cancel because of safety reasons due to the huge swells and gale force winds.

Bob Bevege is congratulated on winning the Ist prize draw of $2000 value by Melissa Benge of Rothbury Insurance Brokers. One thousand dollars cash and one thousand dollars of product from Hunting and Fishing Napier.


Comp has been canceled due to health and safety (extreme weather) – all competitors need to turn up at comp HQ with your tickets at 3pm.

This website will be updated throughout the day with current leading fish weights. If your fish is obviously too small to get a prize you might want to let it go, good luck! 🙂

Position Weight (Kg) Position Weight (Kg)
1st   11th  
2nd   12th  
3rd   13th  
4th   14th  
5th   15th  

A few things to remember:
You require one ticket per rod or handline. ( If you  fish with two rods you need two tickets.)
No lines in the water before 8am. Marshal points will have red flags that will go up at 8am to signal fishing starts.
If you catch a weighable kahawai (30cm+) wave down one of the Marshals on quad bikes and he will tag your fish with your name, ticket number and time of capture.  He will then take your fish to the HQ for official weigh in.
Stop fishing at 2.30pm, if you are parked in the reserve area please pack up and move your vehicle ASAP to avoid being locked in.


The 2017 Kahawai Competition is set for January 22nd 2017.
