Stabicraft Southern 2021 Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic

Stabicraft Southern 2021 Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic

This is last years boat, but you could WIN a similiar Stabicraft Boat by entering the 2021 Stabicraft Southern Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic
The Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic is a major fishing competition in Fiordland held annually over Labour Weekend.   

2021 will be the 14th year for the Stabicraft Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic and the event is run over the two lakes, Te Anau and Manapouri as well as the Upper Waiau River. The major prize is a Stabicraft 1550 Fisher with a 4 stroke 5-hp Yamaha outboard and trailer package. There are also many other great prizes on offer. For full rules see the Fishing Tournament Rules

The 2021 event has many sponsors but we would like to make special mention of Stabicraft Southern, Yamaha and Navico for the major sponsorship of the boat that is the main prize. 

Fishing for all!

This really is a fishing competition for the whole family. With both individual and family entries, both adult, junior and child anglers stand an equal chance of catching a fish in either Lakes Te Anau or Manapouri and the upper Waiau River.

There is also the Cruise Milford Take A Kid Fishing competition aimed at kids 11 years and under to give fishing a go.  This event is run in conjunction with the Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic, but a seperate entry required.

 

The competition runs from 2pm on the Friday of Labour Weekend and concludes at 2pm on the Sunday with prize giving at approximately 3pm.
