GoFishVic launch competition

To encourage anglers to try the GoFishVic app, we are giving away a $100 tackle voucher every week until Easter for a lucky angler who uses the app and records their fishing trip from one of Victoria’s key fishing locations.

The angler will be randomly drawn from all fishing trips recorded each week from Victoria’s key fishing locations. Each trip recorded is a ticket in the draw. The winning angler will be announced weekly on the Victorian Fisheries Authority Facebook page.

Regional Forums

The release of GoFishVic marks the start of the journey of VFA working with recreational fishers to roll out, trial and improve the app for recreational fishers.

Whilst we have some great ideas for the future, we want your feedback on what would make this app even better for you.

We’ve held five public forums at key angling clubs across Victoria in 2020 to explore the app with us and share your ideas including at Nagambie Angling Club, Ballarat Fly Fishers Club, The Pavilion Warrnambool, Albert Park Yachting and Angling Club and Preston Northcote Angling Club.

Due to the bushfires we’ve postponed the Bairnsdale forum, but will be back later in the year to visit anglers in Gippsland.

We’re also giving presentations and introducing GoFishVic app at other angling clubs across Victoria. If you or your club would like a be interested in hosting a public forum on the GoFishVic app please email taylor.hunt@vfa.vic.gov.au
