Gladiator victorious again in the NZ National Tournament

Gladiator competed in the NZ National Fishing Tournament late February 2016 fishing at the Three Kings. This was another excellent years results for owner Donna Pascoe and skipper Ken Pascoe. Our tally for the trip, 14 striped Marlin, 1 Black Marlin, 3 large yellowfin tuna and 4 sharks. All tagged and released.
Results confirmed show Donna was the top striped Marlin angler, 1st tag and release champion billfish angler, 1st tag and release Blue/Black Marlin, 2nd in tag and release tuna, 3rd in tag and release shark, 1st in 60kg line weight and 2nd team overall.
There were just under 1,700 anglers in this 8 day tournament this year.
This excellent result was greatly assisted by our 2 full time experienced crew, Brad Bennetto and Matt Barchet who without their help these results would not have been possible.
