Port Denarau is gearing up to become the toast of the game fishing enthusiast this year with the 2013 sponsored Fiji Islands Classic Game Fishing Tournament to be held from July 12th to 14th 2013 at Port Denarau.
Tournament organizers expect to attract at least 20 vessels with some 100 local and international anglers from Australia and New Zealand participating in this exciting event.
With over $30,000 worth of prizes and various trophies up for grabs, the event promises to be a highly competitive and exciting one. The majority of anglers no doubt will be focusing their efforts on targeting bill fish for maximum points.
Club president Marc McElrath said that the local anglers are ready and are looking forward to trying out their local skill in the Mamanuca waters.
Boats will depart Denarau Marina daily and return by 5 pm each evening for the daily weigh-in spectacle. Here the day’s catches are weighed and points awarded to participating anglers. Spectators are welcome to come and witness some of the surrounding oceans bigger catches.
