2015 Port Stephens Family Fishing Competition Results

Perfect weather conditions over the weekend saw nearly 150 entries in the 2015 Inaugural Port Stephens Family Fishing Competition, sponsored by Soldiers Point Marina, Pantaenius Sail and Motor Yacht Insurance and Ibis Styles Salamander Shores. 

With the senior and junior winners grabbing Shimano rods, reels and hats for catching the heaviest of each of the 10 species, $10,000 in cash prizes was also given away with the lucky person hooking the major $5000 cash prize without even catching a fish.

Lucky door prizes of three nights’ accommodation at the Flagship Golf Villa at Horizons Golf Resort sponsored by the marina and a large esky donated by Tooheys were also taken away.

Junior fisherman Harry Bailey scooped the pool by catching the heaviest fish in 5 categories... an outstanding effort.

Big thanks also to BCF at Taylors Beach, and Duffy's Bait and Tackle for donating lots of prizes for the junior fishers.

Same time next year......

Testimonial

After staying in various marinas along the coast, the Soldiers Point Marina is by far the best value for money, has the most friendly and supportive staff and presents the most breath taking sunsets to set off the end of each perfect day
Throughout the summer months, each occupant of the marina is greated with free morning coffees and daily papers and free cocktails to enjoy at the end each afternoon 
Boasting beautifully maintained bathrooms and surrounded by restaurants hugging the Marina's edge, this Marina has so much to offer that nearby other marinas are left wanting in every instance. 
Becoming a "resident" of the marina is to be welcomed into a large family where everyone's needs are seen to seemingly immediately with no fuss or bother. Whether it's coffee and lunch from the floating cafe or drifting slowly away from the berth into the pristine waters of the bay, Soldiers Point Marina presents every feature, benefit and peace of mind that anyone could ever want from this first class facility of this standard.
