Club Marine Trailer Boat Fishing Tournament

Event dates to be confirmed: March 2019

First held in 1994, the annual Trailer Boat Fishing Tournament is held at Port Stephens just outside peak holiday periods. This is a fishing tournament for small boat anglers of all ages and skill levels with a strong focus on family groups.

The Trailer Boat Fishing Tournament is primarily for people who have never previously entered a fishing tournament (around 50 per cent each year). The format remains deliberately aimed at family groups and the Junior contingent is always strong and keenly contested. It is very easy to enter and enjoy with many species and lucky draw prizes to be won and you do not need to be a fishing club member.

Despite the high angler numbers over the three days, there are very few (under 200) fish weighed in each year, with many of these released back into Port Stephens after the Event. This means that the Tournament is always welcome in the area because of its minimal impact on local fish stocks.
