Lake Taupo Catfish Cull Polespear Competition

The Lake Taupo Catfish Cull Polespear Competition is a new addition to the NZ circuit and was an absolute blast!!

Brown bullheads were illegaly introduced to Lake Taupo (a world class trout fishery) years back, but have now proliferated to the point that the NZ Department of Conservation has declared them a noxious pest. In the spirit of saving the environment (and unbridled bloodlust ) some of the visionary minds got together and came up with this competition.

We had an awesome time. 36 competitors armed with polespears swept through the lake like a plauge and smashed cats for 6 solid hours .

Big thanks to everyone who's pictures I stole .
