Dad Simon and tribe (oldest to youngest): Jye, Sophie, Luke and Cooper with catches at last year’s Annual Gardiner Fisheries Whiting Competition
By Gardiner Fisheries
Mark August 1 on your calendars as the kickoff date for the third Annual Gardiner Fisheries Whiting Competition. Competitor numbers have tripled since our inaugural comp and this year’s event is expected to be our biggest yet.
With a combined total cash and prize pool valued at over $20,000, all registered competitors will be in the running to win the major prize of a $9,500 boat, motor and trailer package just for entering.
Running until November 20, the 2021 Whiting Championship will comprise three separate divisions for competition: Open Adults, Open Juniors and Three-Person Team.
Once registered, anglers can fish at their leisure as often as they like between August 1 and midday November 20. Providing a four-month duration allows fishers to choose their favourite moon phase, weather conditions, and compete around work and family commitments.
Early bird registrations will open on July 1 and will come with a bonus ticket in the major prize draw if entered before August 1.
