About 120 boats took to the water on Saturday for the Waianakarua Lions' annual Moeraki offshore fishing competition.

The event, held annually since 1987, was raising funds to go towards a defibrillator for the North Otago Order of St John.

A large crowd gathered next to the Moeraki Tavern for the prizegiving and an auction of fish, ably handled by auctioneer Dave Webster.

Results were: Blue cod, D. Quinn (2.68kg); sea perch, Anderson (1.56kg); groper, G. Birchfield (12.97kg); trumpeter, S. Goodson (3.73kg); terakihi, D. Kilday (.95kg); diver's crayfish, R. Wallace; wrasse, S. Scott (1.54kg); dogfish, Muz (3.55kg); gurnard, Muz (1.1kg); carpet shark, A. Brosnahan (5.35kg); other sharks, C. Arbuckle (127kg); skate, G. Brook (4.82kg); leatherjacket, N. Lyon (.37kg); other cod, S. Witehira (1.56kg); octopus, M. Tate (7.5kg).
