Fishing and Species Restrictions - Classic Update
The committee has decided to prohibit an area of the coast due to the forecasted weather and remove tuna from the competition for this year.
Prohibited area: South of Oakura to Opunake. You can fish Oakura and you can fish Middletons Bay, Opunake. Unable to fish the likes of Bayly Rd / Cape. All other areas within the normal boundaries are open to fishing eg White Cliffs.
This is due to our health and safety policy of 15knt wind maximum. Bayly Rd / Cape is exceeding that at present.
Tuna: This is not in the competition for 2021. All allocated tuna prizes will be a ticket draw. Must be at prizegiving to be eligible. Junior tickets not included in this prize draw. This is to prevent anglers from heading out wide to target tuna.
A decision will be made and posted on here and Facebook regarding Sundays fishing and any restrictions.
