Catch Fishing is proud to be sponsoring this amazing new Tradie fishing comp, putting trade vs trade – Who will come out on top?
The inaugural Great Tradie Fish Off is kicking off this March, and there is a lot to get excited about. You’ll get a chance to win individual, company and trade honours – and it’s absolutely free to enter! Thanks to our generous sponsors, the first 1000 tradies registered will also receive a free entry pack, which includes a custom measure mat, a packet of Catch Black Label Livies softbaits and jigheads, and a Marine Deals discount voucher for Catch product.
How does the comp work?
When you sign up, you first register as an individual, then select or add the company you want to represent (even if you don’t work for them), and finally choose the trade to represent. Every fish you enter into the comp in March will automatically be allocated across those three categories. For the duration of the comp, you will be able to watch all three live leaderboards to keep up to date with how you, your trade, and your company are tracking. Even if you are not a tradie, can can still enter, (we are all home handyman tradies, right)? You do need to pick a trade and trade company to represent however.
This is a measure-only competition, so to enter a fish, you will need one of The Great Tradie Fish Off Measure Mats (which can be purchased at www.catchfishing.pro if you’re not one of the first 1000) or another approved measure mat (a list of approved measure mats can be found at www.offsite.fishingcomp.co.nz). When you catch a fish you’d like to submit, simply line it up on the mat, take a pic, and enter it on the website. Each angler can submit one fish per species per day, so choose wisely! You can then decide whether you keep the fish to feed your friends and whanau or release it to swim another day – that’s the beauty of measure-based comps.
You can also fish anywhere in the country. There will be a prizegiving on March 13th in Auckland, but we will livestream the whole event so those of you smart Kiwis who live outside the Big Smoke can tune in. Go give the Off-Site Instagram page (@offsite_magazine) a follow to stay up to date with the prizegiving details and how you can go about tuning in.
Caught on Catch
To top off the prize list, Catch are going to give two lucky tradies the trip of a lifetime. Anyone who submits a fish caught on Catch product (the picture must show the Catch lure clearly in the mouth of the entry), will go into the draw to win an overnight fishing charter to Great Barrier for two. If you and your company want to be a part of The Great Tradie Fish Off, simply head to offsite.fishingcomp.co.nz and register today. And remember, the first 1000 people to register get free entry packs, so don’t delay!
