Maciu Malo
Saturday, January 25, 2014

DEFENDING best male angler Bruce Powell is confident of retaining his title in this year's Fiji Islands Tuna Classic Fishing Tournament at Denarau today.

Powell said he was aware of the challenge from other competitors and would give his best shot to retain his title at the two-day event.

He will team up with Jeremy Remp and Darren Smith for Team Tainui in their attempt to win the small boat competition for the second year in a row.

Powell expects the competition to be tough, especially with the inclusion of some overseas anglers.

"The competition last year was good and this year is even better and we are eager to stamp our dominance in the sport," he said.

"Our aim is to again win the small boat competition and also the best male angler award.

"We know where to fish and we'll try and repeat our performance of last year."

Competition official Jarred Wood said 13 overseas anglers would be part of this year's competition.

He said the competition would be tougher than last year.

"We are confident of attracting at least 14 vessels from around Fiji with some 65 local and international anglers," said Wood.

"Top local anglers such as Leith Wilson (Team Archillies) from the Royal Suva Yacht Club will be leading the charge together with Scotty O'Connor of Team Namotu.

The weigh-in is at 5.30pm.
