Competition locations

To be in the running, you need to purchase a SIPS permit and fish for the tagged fish at these Queensland stocked impoundments:

The fish must be line caught; however, the fisher may use a landing net in combination with the line fishing to bring the fish onshore.

Claiming a prize

The first 15 tagged fish caught and accurately reported to InfoFish will win a prize.

Report your tagged fish catch by calling 1800 077 001. Reporting your catch to InfoFish is critical; only the first 15 caught, reported, and confirmed catches will be eligible.

Once reporting to InfoFish you will be asked to email InfoFish with some photos of your catch.

  • Do not clean, gut, or scale the fish to take photographs.
  • Leave the InfoFish tag in place when taking the photographs
Example of a Fish ‘n SIPS competition tag

You must take:

  • a photo of yourself with the fish
  • several photos that clearly show the InfoFish tag attached to the fish
  • a close-up photo of the InfoFish tag to verify the tag number
  • a photo of the fish against a ruler to clearly display its length and ensure the InfoFish tag is visible on the fish.

After gathering all the required photo evidence, you need to remove the InfoFish tag and post it to InfoFish , for final verification.

After taking the necessary verification photos and removing the InfoFish tag, you can keep or release thev fish.
