Mokihinui Fishing Competition they came , they fished, they caught

In the Kontiki Section, Joe Brunner was runnerup for the Heaviest Snapper at 7.06kg and also runner-up for Heaviest Fish with his 8.16kg rig.

Mokihinui, up the road from Westport, is home to the best little fishing competition in the South Island.

The 23/24 comp had almost 200 fish weighed in by the 100-plus fishers staying in their baches, the Mokihinui Camping Ground, or over the river at the Gentle Annie camp.

It’s a magical spot with safe swimming for kids and great fishing for all.

Between tides or if conditions improve, you can shoot up to Karamea(the end of the road) or stroll around the local attractions in and around Westport.

Dog Fish A new species

The West Coast Pie Co., with its wild meat fillings, are rated by most.

The 24/25 Mokihinui Fishing Comp kicks off on Boxing Day and runs until Jan 4…with a “Take A Kid Fishing” competition running mid-January.

The organisers reckon getting accommodation sorted well ahead of time is a must.
