New Zealand and Keppel:
We’re back in New Zealand for what’s reputed to be the richest fishing comp in the South Pacific. The Century Batteries Beach and Boat Competition attracts some 2,000 anglers to Marsden Harbour on the North Island each year, and we join some of them on the major sponsor corporate boat – where party fun is just as important as fishing. The fishing side of onboard activities produces some colourful Kiwi characters. Colourful fish, that is. And the Kiwi characters keep on coming right up to the weigh in. Back home in Oz we catch a smorgasbord of reefies around the Keppel Islands, and the mother of all Black Jewfish. And chef Paul Breheny serves Szechuan Fried Barramundi on a Quinoa Tabouleh Salad.
