Plenty to ‘sea’ at the fishing and boat show

There’ll be plenty on display at this years’ TFABS

This is year two for the Tauranga Fishing and Boat Show and once again, Tauranga will have its own indoor fishing and boat show along with everything related to having fun on, in and under the water.

Held at the Trustpower Baypark indoor arena, this year’s show is now covering double the exhibitor area with more than twice the number of exhibitors than last year’s inaugural show.

There will be no shortage of boats on display this year, with no less than 13 brands being represented along with the two leading brands of jet skis and the latest accessories.

Two major fishing tackle retailers and a number of their suppliers will be setting up stalls with plenty of rods and reels to cast your eyes over and of course plenty of terminal tackle.

If you are into surfing, paddle boarding, or both, this year’s show has two outlets showing their goods along with all the accessories you would expect to see in the build up to the coming summer season.

Kayaks and accessories will be on show with diving equipment and advice on diving courses along with spear fishing equipment.

Marine New Zealand, Bay of Plenty Regional Council, Tauranga Coastguard and Fisheries New Zealand will all be on hand to offer water safety and fishery guidance to ensure you return back to land safely and with a legal catch. Legasea and Tindale Marine Research Charitable Trust join us this year to endorse the importance of a conservation balance to protect fish stocks for all.

While Bay of Plenty Powerboat Club provide the smallest and possibly the fastest boats in the show, we have fish Art, marine electronics, fishing simulators, bait cannons and none-other than the legendary Bill Hohepa waiting to meet you and have a yarn.

The Tauranga Fishing and Boat Show will be held at Trustpower Baypark indoor arena on November 1-3.
