The Sovereign Resort Hotel is proud to present its second annual Barramundi competition. This year’s family fun packed event is running from midday Friday to Sunday, October 28-30. First prize is based on a mystery weight Barramundi, which makes the event fun for everyone. This event is all about family fun in the outdoors, not how many fish you catch or how big they are.
All fish that are weighed in go into the draw. At the presentation, a lucky weight will be drawn from the barrel. The closest barramundi to the mystery weight determines the winner of the Quintrex Explorer F390, including a 20hp Yamaha, boat trailer, safety gear and rego.
There are 16 major prizes up for grabs, including six prizes for mangrove jack, if that’s your preferred targeted species. The entry fee includes a wonderful spit roast lunch at the presentation on Sunday, with entertainment by Tablelands band, Hot Whiskey. On the Sunday afternoon there will be family fun events including a lure casting competition and events for the kids.
Last year, the first ever Barramundi Competition was a real hoot, and I’m positive everyone who attended will be back again this year. Once you’ve registered and pick up up your competitor’s ID from the resort, you can travel throughout the region fishing, so long as you’re back at the resort by 11:30am on Sunday.
There is an awesome discounted in-house accommodation package for any anglers staying at the resort, or if you like camping, round up your mates, grab your swag and hook up the tinny. Hope to see you all in Cooktown on the final weekend of the Barra season.
A big shout out to our major sponsors XXXX, Bundaberg Rum and Russel Bowman from The Lure Shop in Cooktown. Without their generous support, this awesome weekend of fishing and fun would not be possible.
