The change from monthly weigh-ins to bi-monthly fishing events started in July 2016 and we had a good turnout at both the July, September, November and February weigh-ins – thanks to all who joined us.

There is a $50 voucher for the heaviest fish weighed in and another $50 voucher for the fish with the best condition factor. One fish cannot be eligible for both prizes and the condition factor takes preference, so if you have a really good fish it will only take out the condition factor prize and the heaviest fish prize will then go to the next heaviest fish.

All club events, including salt water events, will allow you to earn points that count towards the club points trophy awarded at our annual prize giving so don’t miss out.



The event is open to members only. 

You must register for each event by Friday evening prior to the weigh-in. Registration is at the clubhouse on Friday from 6pm to 7:30pm and costs $5 per angler. If you can’t make it on Friday night you can register with Matt the weighmaster during the week at Taupo Rod and Tackle. You will be issued with a Catch Card that must be brought to weigh-in.

All entrants must hold a valid Taupo Fishing Licence and you must show your licence at registration. You may only fish in the Taupo Fishing Licence region must abide by the Taupo Fishing rules.

Fishing commences at 5am on Saturday. You may weigh-in fish caught on Saturday at Taupo Rod and Tackle before 4pm on the Saturday, and all other fish caught are to be weighed in at the club only between 3:30 and 4:30 pm on the Sunday. 

Each angler may weigh in up to three fish each day.

Prize giving is at 5pm and you must be there to receive your prize.



Weighmaster is Mathew Pate and you can contact Matt on 027 358 2053.
