Major prizes

In previous years entrants have had the chance to win a Stabicraft boat - fully fitted out and ready to go! The competition runs from 7am on the Saturday and concludes at 2pm on the Sunday with prize giving at 3pm.

Weighing in a fish is all you need to go in the draw to win the major prize boat. The Te Anau Manapouri Fishing Classic fishing tournament winner is found by knockout of weigh in tickets being drawn.

Fishing for all!

This really is a fishing competition for the whole family. With both individual and family entries, both adult and child anglers stand an equal chance of catching a fish in either Lakes Te Anau or Manapouri and the upper Waiau River. Registration begins on the Friday afternoon and is open all weekend up until Sunday morning.
