Moreton Bay Fishing Classic

Moreton Bay Fishing Classic

This competition headlines as "the ultimate fishing event" and in all honesty it is pretty hard to argue against that title. With over $200 000 in cash and prizes on offer there are few other fishing competitions that even come close.

With fishing boundaries ranging from the sunshine coast to the NSW border and all points east there are few fishing styles that aren't catered for in this event. Whiting fishermen will journey to the Logan, Albert and other SEQ rivers seeking XOS whiting and stud bream. Surf fishermen will head for Straddies pristine beaches in search of greenback tailor, dart and jew, while boaties will head offshore seeking monsters from the deep or prospect their secret Moreton Bay spots. The choice is yours with many choosing their direction with the change of the wind. Winter westerlies this time of the year are ideal for fishing the beach. Warm calm days on the other hand beckon the hard men to go wide in search the big ones. If the weather goes bad then it isn't hard to find a protected river or estuary out of the wind.

With 14 categories of fish to target not only are there a lot of options but a lot of cash and prizes on offer also. 1st, 2nd and 3rd for overall heaviest of each species, best fish of the day for each species and a classic catch to the most impressive single fish on the final night add to the excitement.

Being a family friendly event there are several options to keep the children entertained and the juniors section of bream, whiting and flathead give the kids a chance to shine and join in for some good prizes.
