Take a Kid Fishing contestant holds big catch
The 2014 Stabicraft Yamaha Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic was a tremendous success despite the wind. Some boaties suffered in the exposed lake while those on Manapouri fared better. The expected rain didn't come through during Sunday and a good time was had by all.


The choice of Stabicraft boats went to Alex Caird from Te Anau this year. He choose the Stabicraft Fisher 1410 to take home and had great plans of where he was going to go in it. As a first time entrant he had been really confident to friends and family that he was going to win the boat!
