Fishing Townsville - January Competition

Congratulations to forum member Greg who won the December longest Fingermark competition. His fish measured an impressive 71cm and won him a $100 ProTackle voucher.

For the month of January Fishing Townsville will once again run a 'longest fish of the month' competition. This month we are looking for the longest total length for a Grunter.

Competition Rules
  • Fish can be caught on ANY line class and via any normal legal line fishing method. 
  • The fish must be of a minimum legal size, measured accurately and photographed in a way to prove its total length (ie on a brag mat). 
  • Photo entries can only be submitted online in the appropriate thread of the forum
  • Fish must be caught between Lucinda (excluding Hinchinbrook channel) and Ayr.
  • Competition runs between 1st January 2011 and 31st January 2011 (inclusive of those days). 
  • The angler must be a member of the forum prior to the capture, or be an immediate family member (ie child/wife/husband) of an already registered forum user.
  • To beat an already submitted entry a fish must be a minimum of 1cm longer than the current leader.
  • Photo entries must be submitted within 48hrs of capture.
  • Entries close at 8am on 1st February 2011.
The prize is a voucher to the value of $100 donated by our good friends at ProTackle Townsville. 

Fishing Townsville promotes catch and release fishing. Fish to don't need to be kept for entry to the competition.
