Peninsula Snapper Challenge Entrants pack 2021.

Welcome to the 2021 Peninsula Snapper Challenge, Port Phillip Bay and Westernport’s premier fishing event. The organisers want you to get out have fun and fish as much as you can from the opening on Saturday 20th November through to closing at noon on Sunday 28/11. When the fishing is all done tune in to our virtual presentation which we appear on our Facebook on Monday 29th November at 7.00pm where we will announce our Champion Anglers & give away heaps of lucky draw prizes. Remember that these lucky draw prizes are shared equally amongst entrants, whether you catch a big snapper, a pinky snapper or nothing at all as it is all about being part of the Challenge with family or mates. Trophies & prizes will be available at our collection point at the Frankston Bombers Football Club on Monday 13th December at 6.00pm, all winners will be notified by email.


The Fishing;

Fishing in the Peninsula Snapper Challenge commences at 12.01am on Saturday 20th November and you can fish both Port Phillip Bay and Westernport. After you catch a snapper please enter the fish using a photo of the fish taken on your mobile phone and sent to Challenge HQ via SMS.

The Snapper must be placed on a measuring device that is mounted on a flat, rigid surface.

The entire fish from nose to tail, daily entry code word and fish length must be clearly visible in the photograph. The daily code word will be sent each competition day to the mobile registered with your entry & will also appear on our Facebook daily. Please see the example below;

Tips to help your entry photographs;
