The Lion Red 90 Mile Beach Snapper Classic is a single species (Snapper) Surfcasting Tournament held over five days along the mighty Ninety Mile Beach in Northland New Zealand.

Generally referred to as, "The Snapper Classic", it has operated in its present five day format for the past 26 years.

Originally conceived to extend the tourist season in the Far North region "The Snapper Classic" has grown to become Northland's largest promotional event attracting both national and international exposure.

Now considered the largest surfcasting event in the world, with the biggest snapper taking out more than $50,000 first prize from a total prize pool worth quarter of a million dollars, it has certainly come a long way since it was first conceived in 1982.

Fishermen and women are traveling from all over the world to take a shot at the prizes. Will you be one of them?
