There are several iconic fishing competitions held in our wonderful state, but the annual King of the Pin competition (run by the Sundowners Amateur Fishing Club) stands out as one of the most popular and longest running.
Not only does it open up the opportunity to win cash and prizes donated by some very generous sponsors –it’s also a great excuse to get away for the weekend with your mates or family and do some serious fishing.
This year there is a new ‘catch and release’ section running alongside the weigh-in section of the competition, for those interested in returning their catch after a quick photo on the BragMat. Fishing wholesaler Austackle is proud to be sponsoring and presenting this new and exciting division of the competition.
There is a cash prize of $2000 for a random species draw and plenty of prizes as well. All you have to do is enter the completion and you are eligible to win a Boat Motor Trailer package.
Entry is $35 for adults and $15 for juniors (under 15). For more information and access to the tournament handbook check out the website www.sundownersfishing.com or visit the Facebook page ‘King of the Pin’. Entry forms are available at several local businesses. – FMGReads: 919
