Export Competition 2022-2023 Quarterly Update

One lucky angler will win the Export Fishing Competition major prize at the end of the 2022-2023 season, and it’s as simple as entering one eligible catch at www.fishingcomp.co.nz to be in the draw!

The lucky angler will hitch up an Extreme 545 Sport Fisher, powered by the mighty and fuel-efficient Honda 100hp engine, nestled on a bright and shiny GFAB trailer. The prize includes Lowrance electronics, SeaDek gunnels, Shimano gear, and a fantastic wrap from the team at Brave Design, bringing the total prize package value to $85,000.

It’s FREE to enter and all you need is an approved fish measure – either your own or a mate’s – and you’re good to go. Your catch can be released or kept to share with friends and family, which is the great advantage of this measure-based online competition – you get to choose.

Thanks to Shimano, there’s a stack of other prizes to be won, including ‘lucky angler’ draws most months, along with sensational end-of-season prizes. There’s plenty of time to get involved so head to www.fishingcomp.co.nz and check out all the details!

Turbulent weather systems haven’t provided the best fishing conditions over the past few weeks, but we’re all hoping for a settled late summer. That being said, at just over halfway through the 2022-2023 season there have been over 2,000 catches submitted to the Export NZ Fishing Competition! Over 30 anglers have qualified for the Bayleys x LegaSea Angler Trifecta, and Bob Hawkes’s 88.5cm fish is currently leading the prestigious Furuno Snapper World Cup.

Bob Hawkes’s 88.5cm fish

The rest of the leaderboards are occupied by some great fish, with Joseph Senfelices’ kahawai (63.5cm), Nick Richard’s gurnard (55cm), and Dale Nicholas-Giles trevally (72.5cm), particularly notable catches since the last update. So don’t muck about! If you’re wetting a line, make sure to take an approved measure and snap a photo of your fish; you could win some stunning prizes.

Tight lines!
