Funky Fishing is a family fishing and diving competition based in Whangarei Harbour. Organised by Whangarei Heads School and Community Library, there are great prizes and heaps of fun for young and old.

Weigh-in at Taurikura Beach!

Weigh-in is at Taurikura Beach, in the paddock next to the tennis courts.  Just bring your boat up to Taurikura Beach and it’s a short walk (please be careful when crossing the road).  Much easier for boats launched on the Marsden Cove side of the harbour, and to make it even easier we have tickets for sale at Marsden Cove GAS!

At the weigh-in there are children’s activities, food, plus our unique fish auction. So if you missed out on a big snapper or kingfish there’s a second chance to get one, while at the same time helping raise money for the children at our local school and community library.

The competition is on Saturday 17 March 2018, so here’s hoping for more great late summer weather and good fishing for everybody.

Tickets are available at local outlets. Please check our Facebook Page for latest news.
