Coming soon to a place far far away - Te Toro to be precise. June 9. Details to follow. This is the highlight of my fishing year. Despite winning countless prizes at our club's fishing  comps - especially for gurnard, I think I've only had one or two top ten finishes and as far as I recall I've never been in the top ten.

I'm supposed to be the gurnard guy right? 

This year Smudge, this year. Like The Warriors Big smile

In the past I've offered to take people fishing to teach them some gurnard tricks. In 2017 I took forum member Popeye out to my favourite spots, he came 2nd and I didn't catch a single fish. Wayno came out in the early years and won it, I showed him the spots. It is stories like that that make this such a special comp for me - plus the fact that I run it - along with a couple of good keen Counties men of course.

I have even offered a $1000 to a lucky draw if I win it. Still luck hasn't come my way on the day.

This year I'm not offering anything but a pledge. If I win this year I'll be spending part of the $3000 1st prize on a tattoo, my first one. It will be a gurnard tatt of course!

I'll post some rules and entry detail;s soon, once I've dreamed them up.

Don't get to excited about the tattoo smudge, I have a feeling the money will be going into the Tauranga economy.
Top 10 finish
2020 Grunter Hunter.

Iโ€™ve wanted to fish this for a long time but have had about as much luck getting there as smudge has winning the thing! Maybe this year we will both tick it off!

Will it be the same size as the fish you catch to win?
And where?

Just thinking it may be worth while if no one else entered a carrot on the dayWink
