Pirtek Fishing Challenge


Recommended Posts

Always enter, rarely fish :), one day I will win that boat.

Hopefully this year I can get a couple of hours on the water to hopefully get something to measure. The mystery length for the target species is a much better prize than the largest fish which is good for me.

Going on the rules, the local public lakes should be ok to fish in for Bass.

There is a lot of impoundments around, especially down Victoria way where they are not open to the public or have any fishing allowed whatsoever.

These would be the ones in the closed category.

They certainly have worded the rules badly.

Sent Pirtek Challenge an email yesterday re: private dams and impoundments using Somerset and Wivenhoe as examples of public impoudments this was reply this morning;

Hi Geoff,


Somerset and Wivenhoe are included in the Challenge as they are open to the public.  Our T&C’s clearly state you can fish any dam or impoundment open to the public.
