Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic | Stabicraft

This 1550 Stabicraft could be yours - just enter into the 2021 Stabicraft Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic - and catch a fish!
 

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 50-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 Marine, 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.
