Club Marine Trailer Boat Fishing Tournament

The Trailer Boat Fishing Tournament is held at Port Stephens each year just outside of school and Easter Holiday periods. The Trailer Boat Fishing Tournament is a fishing tournament for small boat anglers of all ages and skill levels It is very easy to enter and enjoy with many species and lucky draw prizes to be won.

It is primarily for people who have never previously entered a fishing tournament (around 50% each year). The format remains deliberately aimed at family groups and the Junior contingent is always strong and keenly contested.

Despite the high angler numbers over the three days, there are very few (under 200) fish weighed in each year, with many of these released back into Port Stephens after the Event. This means that the Tournament is always welcome in the area because of its minimal impact on local fish stocks.
