2012 Pirtek Fishing Challenge

FOR the fourth year running Pirtek is hosting Australia’s biggest national fishing competition, open to everyone in each State and Territory across the country.

The aim of the Fishing Challenge is to raise funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA). Stephen Dutton, Group General Manager of Pirtek Fluid Systems Pty Ltd commented,”We had a tremendous surge of support for last year’s Challenge and were delighted to hand over to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia a cheque for $80,000.

“In 2012 we’re aiming for 6000 competitors and $120,000 for the PCFA.”

“There is over $130,000 in cash and prizes for this year’s Challenge and I urge fishos young and old to become involved. Everyone at Pirtek wishes all competitors good luck and a great day out on Sunday, April 15.”

Every $20 entry fee goes directly to Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. Entrants receive a limited edition cap and brag mat. To register for the event simply log on to

The competition will be held on Sunday, 15 April, 2012 between the hours of 6.00 am and 6.00 pm. Each state’s target species will be revealed after 6.00 pm on Saturday, 14 April, 2012 via the website.

All competitors need to do is catch their state’s target species, photograph the fish on the Pirtek brag mat along with their registered angler number and send the photo to the website. The idea is to catch, measure, photograph and release the fish. There are 17 target species nationally with fantastic prize packs for first, second and third for the longest fish in each category. Junior anglers (under 16) won’t miss out either with prizes for first
and second for each target species.

Every registered competitor will go into the On The Water prize draw to win one of five great prizes.
