Welcome to the Peninsula Snapper Challenge, Port Phillip Bay & Westernport’s most sustainable, innovative & exciting fishing competition.


Our unique format allows catch & release optioned angling in a Covid safe format for all entrants, volunteers & sponsors involved in Melbourne’s premier snapper fishing event.


Entrants can fish any time over the nine day event window in the Open, Kayak & Junior divisions to take home the trophy & title of Peninsula Snapper Challenge Champion.


The nine day window allows you to fish safely around weather, work & social commitments or your favorite tides to give you the best chance to catch Big Red.


Entries open on Saturday October 23rd & follow our Facebook for competition & entry updates.

Thanks to our great friends at Spotters sunglasses, each of the top ten longest snapper captured during the Challenge will be the winners of a pair of glare vapourising Spotters sunglasses & a Spotters cap.


These glass lensed Spotters sunglasses are valued at $319.95 each, will protect your precious eyes from the harsh on water glare, help you pick out weed beds & reefs to maximise your catch whilst you look sharp enough to be a catwalk model.


Not lucky enough to catch that trophy winning fish? Don’t worry as we have a great lucky draw prize pool to be given away to Challenge entrants just for being involved in the fishing fun.


This year we have over $20,000 in trophies & prizes to be given away to lucky entrants, with one in five entrants will land a prize in the lucky draw section.


You could win a fishing trip with Merv Hughes, Humminbird sounder, Wilson Rod & reel package, top flight tackle from Prawn Cracker Berley, Black Magic Tackle, Reedy’s Rigs, Hookem or Rapala or another great prize from the booty.


Wilson Fishing are proud sponsors of the Junior division & have kindly provided a bag full of Wilson Fishing & Zerek lure prizes for our younger entrants.


All winners will be notified by email with prizes available with collection in a Covid Safe click & collect style format detailed in the email.


When the fishing closes the Peninsula Snapper Challenge will host a virtual presentation on our Facebook page to announce our 2021 Champion anglers & give away our fantastic lucky draw prizes.
