Salmon Slam 2021

Salmon Slam 2021 a success as fishers celebrate the iconic southern sportfish

“I can’t believe that I’m a boat owner now, I really can’t – just by catching a salmon – it is great news.”

That was Beau Gee’s response after winning the 2021 Salmon Slam’s $9,000 dinghy, trailer and outboard package top-prize for simply catching a salmon and entering it into the app-based competition.

The three-month Slam came to an end at midnight on 31 May, with 1,659 fishers taking part and chasing salmon along South West and south coast beaches during the autumn salmon migration.

Father-of-three Beau was the random draw-winner to scoop the 3.5m Seejay aluminium dinghy, powered by a six horse-power, four-stroke Honda outboard and trailer, supplied by Rusty’s Marine in Albany.
