GoFish Nagambie’s $500,000 Prize Pool Reels in Anglers

Entries are now open for the second annual GoFish Nagambie, one of the most anticipated weekends on the Aussie fishing calendar. 

With the $500,000 guaranteed prize pool and the famous $80,000 jackpot to the angler who reels in the largest Murray Cod, it’s no surprise that entries are motoring out the door. 

GoFish Nagambie Chief Executive Rod Lockwood and Aussie fishing icon Paul Worsteling from IFISH TV officially launched the entries to the public on Thursday. 

“GoFish Nagambie is genuinely like nothing else out there – yes, the competition has an unprecedented cash and prize offering, unmatched within the industry but the festival is just as much of a draw card,” Mr Lockwood said. 

“With the $80,000 lure, not to mention the yet to be released prizes, it comes as no surprise that over 50% of boating entries sold in the first 48-hours of being on sale,” Rod said. 

IFISH TVs Paul Worsteling said that GoFish Nagambie is the hottest ticket on the fishing calendar. 

“I would hurry up and register for GoFish Nagambie very, very quickly, because if you don’t, you’re going to hear from a mate about just how epic the weekend was.”

“Imagine winning $80,000 catching a Murray Cod, in fact, don’t just imagine, give it a go!” Paul said.

Mr Lockwood thanked the Victorian Government for their ongoing support. 

“Our 2019 inaugural GoFish Nagambie was a huge success, largely due to the vision and support of the Victorian Government and Strathbogie Shire Council,” Rod said.

“This year, close to 2,107 anglers and 7,541 visitors, including a quarter from interstate, descended on Nagambie providing a boost to tourism and an injection of a great deal of money into the local economy.”

“We can’t wait to get back here for a bigger and better GoFish Nagambie in 2020.”

Four-day festival and three-day competition entries are $160.
