Sign up for GoFish Nagambie

By James Bennett

Anglers can rejoice because entries for the second annual GoFish Nagambie are open, but spots are snagging quickly.

With a $500 000 prize pool, plus the grand $80 000 jackpot to the angler who reels in the largest Murray cod, the time to register is now.

GoFish Nagambie chief executive Rod Lockwood and Aussie fishing icon Paul Worsteling from IFISH TV officially launched the entries to the public last week.

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 drawcard,” 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 per cent of boating entries sold in the first 48-hours of being on sale.”

Mr Worsteling said nothing was hotter than GoFish Nagambie 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,” Mr Worsteling said.

The first GoFish Nagambie was a "huge success" for the town's tourism and economy.
