The fourth edition of the Lusip Monster Fish competition is kicking off on November 14, and it has gained more local support with cash prices to the value of E26, 000 to be won.
The Lusip Monster Fish Competition is an annual sponsored Fishing Competition which began in 2017 at Lusip Dam, also known as Lubovane Dam, which is hosted by Robert Forbes and Belinda Forbes.
Speaking to this publication Belinda Forbes said this competition has always been supported locally as well as internationally, but due to the Lockdown Restrictions on travelling, this year’s competition is being supported locally, like no other year before.
Belinda stated that what makes this Fishing Competition differ to other local fishing competitions in Eswatini, was that other than the cash prizes to be won, they take pride in giving back to the community.
There are three different categories under the Bass and the Tiger. Breaking down the winning categories she said, the Biggest Bass category 1st Price winner will walk away with E10, 000.00, and the Biggest Tiger 1st Pace will get E10 000,00.
The Bass 2nd place and Tiger 2nd Place will each get E2, 500. 00 while the Junior Biggest Bass and Junior Biggest Tiger will each get E500, 00.
|Biggest Bass 1st Prize||E10,000.00||Biggest Tiger 1st Prize||E10,000.00|
|Bass 2nd Prize||E2,500.00||Tiger 2nd Prize||E2,500.00|
|Junior Biggest Bass||E500.00||Junior Biggest Tiger||E500.00|
This year, The Lusip Monster Fish Competition will be distributing food hampers to the less privileged in the Siphofaneni area said Belinda. She noted that this Year’s Community project is called “The Food Drive”
Explaining the Food Drive Belinda said out of each entry received to partake in the competition E150.00 will be used as a contribution towards ration packs for The Food Drive.
“We are looking forward to the Fishing Competition this weekend, after this weekend the team will start the planning of Food Hamper Distributions”.
The Lusip Monster Fish Competition is a family friendly event and gives people the opportunity to relax in solitude, freeing the mind from all distractions of everyday life and enjoying the beauty of nature surrounding them in Eswatini. It is a perfect time for like-minded people to compete in a fishing Competition, socialize, unwind and relax after a year of many uncertainties.
