Half a million up for grabs at GoFish Nagambie, Vic

There will be $500,000 worth of prizes up for grabs at GoFish Nagambie.

GOFISH Nagambie is coming to Victoria on April 25 to 28, 2019. Boasting $500,000 in prizes, event organisers say Aussie anglers are champing at the bit to secure an entry and have their shot at taking home the big bucks.

The event is said to be the world’s biggest fishing tournament and outdoor lifestyle festival. Founded by Daryl Herbert and Rod Lockwood at GTR Events, GoFish Nagambie is an event for the whole industry and fishing community. It will provide a platform for recreational anglers to gather and relax for a weekend of fishing and fun while creating a unique opportunity for brands ranging from local handcrafted lure makers to industry leaders to showcase their products.

“We want to use GoFish to endorse important environmental messages by demonstrating how improving of fish habitat and re-stocking can create better fishing opportunities”, said Lockwood.

The catch, measure and release tournament will highlight Australia’s apex predators of the rivers and lakes systems, the Murray cod and golden perch. Nagambie’s pristine waterways are jam-packed with structure, snags and habitat that anglers will love fishing from either their boats, kayaks or from the bank.

Lockwood went on to say “with $500,000 prize pool up for grabs and split across open, cadet (teenage) and kids’ categories, we are showcasing that fishing is a sport that everyone can enjoy. Furthermore, the prize pool is split so that anglers of all abilities can and will go home winners. We want more people fishing, more often”.

There is plenty of action happening off the water too, as the banks of Nagambie Lakes play host to the Festival Hub.

“Visitors will want to come down and soak up the electric atmosphere and immerse themselves in all that it has to offer. With everything from a vibrant shopping precinct, hands-on education program and kids’ activities, local gourmet produce and cooking demonstrations, this will be a great place to unwind with good food, drinks and great entertainment going on into the night,” said Lockwood.

The date for entries opening will be announced in the next coming weeks. Sign up to the GoFish e-news to ensure this date is in the calendar, with capped entry, you don’t want to miss out. Sign up HERE or head to the event’s Facebook page
