Game fishing

Kevin Foothead and Mike Bramley from Waikanae hold their prize-winning fish, a 62-kg tuna, caught during a national fishing tournament at Whakatāne in 1990. Big game fishing attracted international interest from the start of the 20th century and along with surf-casting has become popular among New Zealanders.
