Great monthly prizes up for grabs in 2024 for Recfishwest members!

As a thank you to our cast of thousands of Recfishwest free and premium members for their support, we’re giving away some cracking prizes every month courtesy of our partners Shimano! 

Shimano has not only supported our Recfishwest fishing rules app for many years along with our State-wide fishing report, Awesome Autumn of Salmon campaigns and our SunSmart fishing clinics across WA – but they have also provided stacks of fishing goodies to award to some of our lucky members throughout 2024! 

Just by joining as a free or premium Recfishwest member, you’ll go in the running to win any of the prizes below! 

But there’s more! In addition to the Shimano prize packs three members drawn from the hat will also win an exclusive Recfishwest members’ lure pack containing three of our unique members’ lures produced in partnership with Halco as part of our annual lure design competition.  

This year’s winning lure the Fish Catcher 3000 Laser Pro 120 features in the pack too – it’s a beauty! Check out the new lure here! 

Already a member? You’re already in the monthly draws!  


Check out the prizes below.  

The Shimano Big Bundle!  

Three lucky Recfishwest members will win a Shimano Big Bundle from three members’ prize draws held throughout the year.

  • Shimano Miravel C3000HG reel 
  • Shimano tackle wallet  
  • 3x packs of Squidgy Reef Wrigglers soft plastics  
  • 15lb Power Pro fishing line 
  • 16lb Ocea Fluorocarbon leader  
  • A few Recfishwest membership lures to keep all of this company out on the water!
Shimano’s prize pack featuring all the above plus a few exclusive Recfishwest membership lures will be sent out to three lucky Recfishwest members in 2024!

Monthly draw prizes  

Members will also have the chance to win a Shimano Miravel C3000HG reel valued at $229 every month!

Purpose-built for finesse fishing in both freshwater and inshore saltwater environments, Shimano’s Miravel reel is backed by their CoreProtect water repellent technology which increases durability and water resistance without creating a heavy winding feeling.

Three lucky standard or premium members each month will have three of our exclusive Recfishwest lures mailed out to them so you can have a fine time wetting a line!
