Hibiscus Gamefish Open

Hi everyone,

This is just a reminder about the annual Hibiscus Gamefish Open which is set for this weekend, on Saturday 14th June. This is going to be a excellent comp with all the good fish that have been about. I have heard reports of good catches of Wahoo, Sailfish and even some Kingfish and Cuta. The odd Garrick has also been sighted which bodes well for those that are doing a shore dive.

The area is open from the Tugela River Mouth in the north to Port Edward in the south. This is a big area and remember that the cut off for weigh-in is at 3pm sharp. No fish will be accepted into the weigh-in area after this time. The cash prizes are as follows:

Biggest gamefish: R4000
Second biggest gamefish: R1500
Third biggest gamefish: R500

Note that the above prizes will also include spearfishing gear. There will also be prizes for the biggest crayfish, the biggest bottom(minimum 3kg) and more... There will also be a lucky draw that includes 2 holidays worth +-R3500 each and some smaller prizes for R20 a ticket...

Your R200 entry includes the following:

A braai pack with salads, rolls, etc at the venue after the weigh-inn.
A T-shirt with graphics designed by the legendary Darryl Hattingh.
1 free entry into the lucky draw.
