KITFT 2013The recent Kariba Invitation Tiger Fishing Tournament (KITFT) was a great success with huge scores, great fish and sunny days. Charter Africom were the proud winners of this year’s annual Kariba Invitation Tiger Fish Tournament, It was its 52nd Anniversary and took place from the 2nd October until the 4th October 2013.

On Day 1 Lake Kariba had an unusually cold temperature, cold water (at around 22.4 degrees) which lead to a cold start for many teams which provided a testing playfield allowing the top teams to shine through at the weigh bay that afternoon.

Remington Charter X started day 2 of KITFT 2013 with a total weight of 47.16kgs and held a nominal lead of 2.73kgs over the arch rivals Charter Africom who had amassed an impressive 44.43kgs. Team Sakunda completed the top 3 with 42.05kgs which made the competition even harder. Gold Sponsors Team Nissan had landed 41.44kgs of fish on day 1 of the event while other teams such as LAC Famous Grouse and St. Elmo’s Yamaha completed the very competitive top 10.
