NZ Lure Masters Winners!
May 26th was the date, and 26 was nearly the wind speed in knots, but a cold southerly wind was not going to deter the 350 contestants in the annual NZ Lure Masters competition proudly sponsored by Honda Marine.
There was a wealth of prizes but all eyes were focussed on the big one - a 1550 Stabicraft Frontier powered by a BF60HP Honda engine. The boat was fully kitted out with Garmin tech and many other awesome features.
There were some great fish caught and there were plenty of other prizes won using only lures, no bait and no berley. Once those prizes were out of the way, the 'last man standing' competition for the boat draw begun. 10 nervous punters lined up and waited hoping not to be eliminated.
After many minutes of suspense, that must have felt like hours to the contestants on the stage, the last man standing was Lee from Auckland. A huge congratulations from us here at Honda Marine - enjoy that boat!
