Fight a Fish

For Medical Research



Welcome to the 2020 Pirtek Fishing Challenge.

This is the 12th 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 and brag mat.

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’.

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

Plus a $4000 cash prize if your catch is closest to the ‘Mystery Length’ in your category.

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 tiller steer boat and trailer package, including an Evenrude E-tec 75hp outboard engine (valued at $31,990), Snap-On Tools tool kits (two valued at $2600 and eight valued at $600), a Lowrance Hook 2 fish finder (valued at $2000), a Berkley fishing tackle pack (valued at $2000), or a $500 Valvoline product pack.

Altogether, the prize pool is worth a massive $215,000.

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!
