Trailer Boat Fishing Tournament
Saturday 01 April 2023 to Sunday 02 April 2023
In 1994, a small group of enthusiastic trailer boat anglers met at Nelson Bay on beautiful Port Stephens for an enjoyable weekend of fishing and camaraderie. The annual Trailer Boat Fishing Tournament has since grown to be amongst the most popular family fishing tournaments in Australia while staying true to its original ideal of making anglers of all ages and skill levels welcome.
The event is designed to attract visitors to Port Stephens in an otherwise quiet period. This is the first-ever fishing tournament for around 50% of competitors each year, with people travelling from all over Australia for the weekend. The tournament is every bit as much a social event as a competition and many families have developed long-lasting friendships over the years. It is not unusual to see 3 generations of a family enjoying the weekend together.
It is very easy to enter and participate. There are on average 96 species prizes to be won plus a huge number of lucky draws for the not so lucky. Visit the website for full details and entries.
