Fight a Fish

For Medical Research


Welcome to the 2021 Pirtek Fishing Challenge.

This is the 13th 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 Powerbait Nemesis 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 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 – a Stacer 469 Outlaw boat and trailer package, including a 75hp outboard engine (valued at $36,990), Snap-On Tools tool kits (two valued at $2600 and eight valued at $600), a Lowrance Elite FS 9-inch sounder GPS unit (valued at $1899), Berkley fishing tackle packs (one valued at $2000 and four valued at $1000), JBL marine digital media receiver and club marine speakers (valued at $700), a $500 Valvoline product pack, or a $350 Mako Eyewear sunglasses pack.

Altogether, the prize pool for this year exceeds $240,000!

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!
