The 58th edition of the Argungu International fishing festival has come and gone, but its memories will forever remain indelible in the minds of tourists in terms of organization. Pundits say this is the best in the history of the festival which started several decades ago. At the end of the three days' event, a 37 year old man, Mallam Bello ya'u Argungu came first in this year's fishing festival with his biggest catch weighing 65.95 kilograms.

One of the sponsors of the fishing festival, Maltina, gave him a new Honda car, the state government rewarded him with a Hajj seat and fishing equipment, MTN gave him a coloured television set while Virgin Air promised to take care of his medical expenses for one year. His fish was also auctioned by the Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Sahad Abubakar for N1 million.
