Peninsula Snapper Challenge

November 2 - November 10

The Peninsula Snapper Challenge, Port Phillip Bay & Westernport’s most innovative & sustainable fishing event is on again from November  2-10th.

With a user friendly nine day competition fishing window, entrants can safely fish around weather, work & social commitments in their pursuit of the Challenge winning fish in the Open, Kayak & Junior divisions. Tournament judges will determine the snapper champions by the longest snapper submitted using a smart phone photo of the captured fish placed on a measuring device. This judging method allows easy release of the snapper if the angler desires and any upgrades later in the tournament by sending more photos of the larger fish to Challenge HQ. Spotters sunglasses will provide a sunglass gift pack to the lucky anglers who capture any of the ten longest snapper entered.

Entrants need not worry if they don’t tangle with Big Red as we have a pirate’s booty of lucky draw prizes where every event entrant goes into the draw to win. Thousands of dollars of top quality Shimano outfits headlined by the ultimate snapper combo of a Stella 5000 matched with a Grappler 735 form part of the lucky draw alongside a $2500 Tackleworld shopping spree. Humminbird GPS/fishfinder, BLA anchor winch, Stormy lifejackets, Life Cell marine safety units, Club Marine insurance vouchers, Rapala lure packs and Spotters sunglasses from Karingal Optical are all part of the $20,000 prize pool that will be given to entrants just for fishing with family or mates in the Challenge.

Our Junior anglers can also join in all the fun of the Challenge where every Junior entrant at the presentation will receive a Wilson rod & reel combo matched with a Black Magic Snapper Snack all ready for the nest fishing trip. Trophies will presented, prizes given away and all thing snapper celebrated at the Peninsula Snapper Challenge presentation event on Sunday 10thNovember from 2.00 at the Frankston Bombers Football & Netball Club in Baxter which is only 20 minutes from the Mornington, Frankston, Hastings & Patterson River boat ramps.
