Mercury Bay Game Fishing Club


Kids Fishing Competition



Warm and dry with overhead cloud cover to keep the sun at bay – the competition was held in ideal conditions and the fishers of the future turned out in droves. The Whitianga community support was tremendous with fantastic sponsorship and donations of prizes including waiving the $2 entry fee after it was paid for by two businesses. There were more than 50 spot prizes as well as other great prizes for fish caught as a record 138 competitors vied for a piece of wharf to fish from with some moving down to the beach so they had enough room.


Sponsors included: Total Home Developments, Whitecliff Builders, Whitianga New World, The Warehouse, Longshore Marine, Whitianga Countdown, Birdspring Miniputt, Mercury Bay Twin Cinemas, Mercury Bay Museum, The Stunned Mullet, The Glasshouse Emporium and Grace O’Malleys. Mercury Bay Game Fishing Club wishes to express its appreciation to all these businesses and the volunteers who helped on the day.
