Mokihinui Fishing Competition second half century , still going strong

The main 10-day competition kicks off on Boxing Day and runs until 4 January, with the very popular “TAKE A KID FISHING” competition then following on 17 and 18 January.

30 minutes north of Westport is Mokihinui, one of The Coast’s most popular camping and fishing spots.

From the Mokihinui River to the beach drop-off at Gentle Annie on the north side, fishers have much to think about if they aim to scoop prizes at the ‘23/24 competition.

You can fish from Granity School to Old Man Rock and need long rods and gutsy gear for surfcasting, rodholders, wire grip sand sinkers, and the best attractive bait you can manage!

There are prizes for all the lucky fishers, young and old, with daily weigh-ins at the Pub ‘n’ Grub Hotel, who also put on a BBQ, fresh fish, and salads on the last day of the competitions. This year there’s a new prize a bait cannon for some lucky fisher.

All the locals are pulling together as always to make the MOKIHINUI FISHING COMPETITION a fun time for everyone.
