The entry fee is $10, which forms part of the prize money, children under 14 are free.
To get there turn off State Highway 1 onto Hook Swamp Rd, (near Butlers Berry Barn). Take a right turn onto Hook Beach Rd and follow it along to the end. There is plenty of parking on the day in a well signposted paddock. Bring your own fishing gear, bait is supplied, and some sinkers are available for purchase.
There are lots of prizes and trophies, and every child who enters gets a backpack with lots of sponsored goodies in it.
Fishing starts from 8.30am, but you can turn up at any time. Weigh in is at 2pm, and prize giving at 3pm.
The aim of the day is a fun family day out. There are a few rules guiding the competition but the most important are to have fun, stay safe, take away all rubbish with you, and fish within the legal limit in order to promote sustainability. For the full list of competition rules click here.
