2018 Contender 28 Tournament

The Great White Shark is the Ocean’s apex predator. It is also the prey for OCEARCH’s tag and release program lead by Chris Fischer & Capt. Brett McBride. Team OCEARCH has used a Contender 28T to catch these formidable fish all over the world in a variety of challenging conditions. The 28T is a proven fish catching machine used for the world’s most notorious sharks, and every other species in the sea. The maneuverability, fish-ability, and reliability make a Contender a natural choice for fisherman even if your target is a not as ambitious as Jaws.
