Fight a Fish

For Medical Research

Welcome

Welcome to the 2022 Pirtek Fishing Challenge.

This is the 14th year Pirtek has hosted Australia’s biggest national fishing competition. It’s open to everyone – mums, dads, kids and grandparents!

Registration is $25, plus postage. Everyone who registers receives a limited edition Pirtek Fishing Challenge cap, brag mat and sticker.

Plus, each Junior who enters receives a pack of Berkley lures, RRP $9.95.

The Pirtek Fishing Challenge is all about raising funds for medical research.

We proudly support the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and the Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit.

There are target species in each state and territory of Australia, plus the Murray Darling Basin, ‘East Coast Freshwater’ and ‘Mountain Trout’ categories.

For the longest fish in each species, there are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in both senior and junior sections.

Plus a $4000 cash prize if your catch is closest to the ‘Mystery Length’ in all 22 senior categories.

Even if you don’t catch the biggest fish, (or any fish at all), just by entering you’re in the draw to win one of our ‘On The Water’ prizes.

  • Stacer 469 Outlaw boat, trailer, 75hp outboard engine, Lowrance FS9 sounder and Club Marine insurance – value $39,700
  • Sea-Doo FishPro Scout, trailer and 12 months Club Marine insurance – value more than $22,800
  • Stacer 389 Territory Striker, 25hp tiller-steer outboard engine, trailer, Lowrance Elite FS7 sounder and 12 months Club Marine insurance – value more than $14,800

  • $500 Valvoline product pack
  • $350 Mako Eyewear sunglasses pack

Our ‘On The Water’ prizes are worth over $100,000, and the combined prize pools for this year exceeds $280,000!

Remember the idea is to grab the family or a couple of mates for the day, have a great time fishing and raise dollars for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and the Peter Duncan Neurosciences Research Unit at St Vincent’s Hospital. And hopefully some big prizes for yourself!
