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

I have to say, that even in the short time I have been there, I am more impressed than I thought I might be with Soldiers Point Marina and the professional 6 star service you offer.

During the recent storms, the ability to check my boat via your webcam camera was invaluable. As I had only just moved "The Omen" to the marina, I still only had light docking lines securing the boat. When I called, late at night, you went out of your way to place extra lines to secure it in the strong wind, and I was able to watch you do it, via the web cam. It eased my concerns, for this I sincerely thank you for your care and attention to my pride and toy.

Your service also extends to personal attention and assistance with loading, unloading, valet parking and the ability to have ice delivered to my boat, this is service I have never experienced at all the other marinas in Port Stephens I have berthed at over the years.

Soldiers Point Marina is truly a 6 star marina, I just wish I had moved "The Omen" there sooner.
