Fishing fans get ready for 12th P.I.S.T

FISHING: Following the destructive Tsunami in the indian Ocean region in 2004, the former organisers of the Phuket fishing tournament decided to call it a day.

However, in 2005 they quickly decided – in only two weeks – that they would start to organise a new tournament, and thus the Phuket International was born.

In the first three years of the event went by various names, but from 2008 onwards it was officially known as the “Phuket International Sportfishing Tournament” (P.I.S.T).

In the tournaments early days, there were just five people who joined, but that number soon increased to a healthy three men teams.

And by 2009, the event had became so popular that the orgaisers started to hold a charity evening whereby funds raised from the event were donated to the local Sunshine Village Orphanage.

Now in its 12th year, the decision to run a fun fishing tournament is paying off very well as rather than paying out prize money to entrants, the money now goes instead to charity.

The P.I.S.T is now the longest running fishing tournament in Asia, and last year only the event brought in some B175.000 funds which were all donated to The Phuket Sunshine Village.

This event is proudly sponsored by The Phuket News and Live89.5.

Tournament Info

  • Entrants can register to enter from now until the end of September for the “Early Bird” price of B10,000 per team (four members). Registration thereafter B12,000.

  • Registration to enter the tournament is on the November 23 from 4pm onwards at the Tamarind Bar & Grill in Chalong.

  • The weigh station will be at the Tamarind Bar & Grill in Chalong on all three fishing days – November 23, 24 and 25.

  • The final evening and prize giving party will also be held at the Tamarind Bar & Grill, Chalong

  • In an effort to showcase individual team skills, the rules of the P.I.S.T. 2016 have been designed to allow teams to fish the event as they would while fun fishing.

  • The P.I.S.T. 2016 is a three day team fishing event with top team honours going to the team that tallies the most points (per kilo) during the tournament.

  • The Tournament also awards prizes to the team that catches the largest fish (by weight) in each eligible species.
