The biggest family friendly annual fishing competition on the South Coast, Batemans Bay NSW

Our competition endeavours to be progressive and promote sustainable recreational fishing; we hope your weekend with us will be one of enjoyment, great fishing and value for money.

Sure, every fisherman has their own special spots where they like to fish alone or share only with their most trusted, closest friends. But, for those times when you wish to participate in the camaraderie and competition that fishing contests offer, this event is a great way to meet old friends, make new friends and introduce others to fishing.

Sustainable fishing

Sustainable fishing allows the sport to be maintained indefinitely “without reducing the target species’ ability to maintain its population and without adversely impacting other species within the ecosystem.”

This means that species targeted are common and can reproduce quickly to sustain their own population, as well as the populations of sea life that rely on them in the food chain.  The United Nations estimates that over 80% of the world’s fisheries are in jeopardy to collapse due to overfishing.  National and international governments have imposed laws and restrictions to limit overfishing in sensitive areas.

It is our belief that by playing a role in sustainable fishing we can help maintain the sport without jeopardizing our environment.

The Competition

Welcome to a fishing competition designed to bring people together to celebrate the sport, community and the environment (and to give away some pretty awesome prizes)!

Our Sponsors

On behalf of all the Euro Fishing Association members and the South Coast Mighty Bonanza Committee (SCMB Committee) the President of the Euro Fishing Association (EFA) welcomes you to the Eurobodalla and this fine event. We hope your weekend with us will be one of enjoyment, great fishing and value for money.

We welcome Trussworx Moruya and South Coast Superior Decks as our Major local cash sponsors and Compleat Angler Batemans Bay, Shimano Australia, Rapala Australia and Garmin Australia as our Major Fishing Industry Sponsors. We look forward to many more years of their invaluable support, without their donations the EFA could not conduct events like the SCMB for the public. Our competition endeavours to be progressive and promote sustainable recreational fishing.

One way that you our treasured competitors can ensure many years of continued recreational events is to support the EFA’s loyal sponsors. Year after year they provide great support with their goods and services. Please take time to note all our sponsors, meet them if possible and visit/purchase their goods at every opportunity.
