      2021 One Base


      We regret to inform everyone that due to the current Covid-19 alert levels, we will be unable to run our Onebase tournament at Great Barrier this weekend. The committee have decided not to postpone but to cancel as due to other tournament clashes in the coming month, we are unable to fit it in this season. We will offer full refunds for all entries. Refunds will be electronically deposited into each skippers account for them to pay back to crew members. If the club has not contacted your boat within a week then please contact the club via email warkworthgamefish@gmail.com. Fingers crossed we have a handle on this virus for next year.

      The weather is looking dodgy az, so please keep this in mind when choosing your destination and travel times.
      No fish or prize is worth more than your life.

      2:40pm Friday 29th: Notification of the object that must appear in you pics, per below.

      See previous years reports and pics for how we roll.
      It will be a little different this year because of Covid-19, nothing we can’t deal with, right?

      But it’s the same fun with big baits and skinny line.
      We run these events on the smell of an oily rag, more entries = more prizes to share around.

      Read the Rules to get the most out of your event.
      Thank you to our sponsors of previous years. We thought we’d give you a break, since the virus has already given you a financial hiding. This years event is cash in/cash out. Electronically of course.

      Get your crew together, break out that mono and the bendy sticks. This event has been running for decades and relies on you being honest with your gear. Join us (at a distance) for the longest running Hauraki Gulf light line tournament, and one of (the?) longest successively held fishing events in the country.

      Covid-19 update 26/05: Okay so now gatherings of up to 100 are acceptable. We weren’t to know that while we were organising the event, so there’s still no ‘official’ gathering after the comp. Might be a few pockets of after match good times around the place though, so keep your ear to the ground…

      The object that must appear in your measure pics is a CLOSED FIST.
      You are advised to text in your measure pics immediately after capture, because in the [likely] event of a tie the first fish sent to us will win that prize.

      DATE & TIME

      Friday 24th, Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th JANUARY 2020.


      Fitzroy Boating Club on Sunday

      The grid in your boat pack is to be included in pics of measured snapper and kingfish to qualify for those sections.
      This interwebby copy is for reference and another promo for our awesome sponsors.

      Friday 24th, Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th JANUARY 2020.


      Note: Saturday night is also a stay away night this year.

      WwGFC 2020 One Base at Great Barrier

      Here we go again!

      Auckland Anniversary Weekend (Monday) is 27th January so our comp is Friday – Sunday before.

      Note this year Saturday is ALSO a stay away night – so we only catch up on Sunday night. The previous years grid fishing area will still stand, have a look at last years one – basically the Knights to Cuvier. If you can’t catch a fish in that area there’s nothing we can do for you!

      The superb mix of stunning sponsorship and generous prizes will be on offer.

      We’re working hard on establishing a decent Sunday dinner (like in the olden days) because like you we haven’t been impressed with recent efforts.

      It’s an excellent shakedown event for the pending season and Aotea is such a cool place to fish for everything northern waters have to offer.

      Tickets, rules, posters, etc will be sorted in due course (we’ve got dayjobs you know!) but if you haven’t fished this comp before check out our previous years reports. If you want some first hand info join us at the Clubrooms for a jar on the last Sunday of each month 5 – 6pm.

      DATE & TIME

      Sunday 8th December.

      330 – 5pm


      SYC wharf, Sandspit

      Sunday 8th December 2019

      or as revised by the eventual rules.

      WGFC/SYC Kids Fishing Event

      A fun rather than competitive outing for the littlies off the main SYC wharf.

      Catch and measure for release back into the water or dads (grandads) bait bin.

      Prizes sponsored by SYC/GFC/Hunting & Fishing Ww.

      The bearded fat guy might turn up too. No no, the one in the red suit.

      Daniel & Renee will have the kitchen humming, so grab a lager and a snack and watch the chaos from upstairs!

      Open to kids of SYC/GFC relatives, friends. No age restriction and older kids are welcome to help their younger family members even if not fishing.

      If it’s raining bring a raincoat. Only extreme weather would see this event postponed.
