Fish hard to catch

Tuesday 25 October 2011 | Published in Regional


The CITC Liquor fishing competition was held last Saturday in excellent conditions.

The strong winds experienced earlier in the week had died away and sea conditions for game fishing were excellent.

Thirteen boats entered, but once again fish were elusive to catch with only 4 boats returning to the clubrooms with fish to weigh-in.

Earlier in the week several charter boats had some good catches, but local fish always seem to know when the club is running a competition and refuse to take the variety of lures and baits offered.

First place in the heaviest fish section went to clubs president Ina Tararo with a nice 20.8kg wahoo with experienced fishermen Dick Marsters landing a 19.4kg wahoo to take out second place.

Four yellow fin tuna weighing in at 33.2kg was enough to win Ina Kaikura first place in the aggregate section.

Second place went to the clubs vice-president Don Beer with his two maimai weighing 17.4kg.

This competition was generously sponsored by CITC Liquor and Lawson Dry Hills vineyards who donated a case of wine for prizes.

CITC Liquor manager Fraser Nooroa and Barbara Lawson were present for the prizegiving held in the evening prior to the screening of the Rugby World Cup finals.

The club wishes to sincerely thank both sponsors for their continuing support for the club and its aim to promote game fishing in Rarotonga.
