Z Pier Auckland Fishing Classic welcomes you
Entries are now open for the Z Pier Auckland Fishing Classic at Westhaven Marina on 22 March 2015, an event in which all comers from serious anglers to first-timers are invited to visit Westhaven, enjoy hospitality, and the great experience of fishing.
“We want tournament fishers to take part, but we also want people who haven’t had a chance to try fishing before, to come along and have a go,” says Tom Warren of Westhaven Marina.
To make that happen, Westhaven’s charter boat fleet at Z Pier are offering great deals on fishing trips, and Westhaven is also hosting young budding fishers onboard a Sealink barge in the Waitemata Harbour.
At the first Z Pier Auckland Fishing Classic, there was a prize for just about every entrant, and $30,000 in fishing gear has already been secured from more than twenty sponsors and supporters for this year’s event, including kayaks, rods, tackle, bait, clothing, and more.
Billfish Cafe is providing hospitality and music for the prizegiving at Z Pier, and Legasea will be there to clean and fillet your catch, with any unwanted parts going to FreeFishHeads.co.nz.
Fishing is encouraged from the city’s wharves and seawalls, and from kayaks and all types of boats, and the event has a sustainability focus with rules that help to ensure the preservation of fishing stocks.
The event is organised for Waterfront Auckland by Joe Dennehy. Entry is $65 for adults, $15 for kids, and entries can be made through Eventfinder.
