The 2018 Whitsunday Game Fish Club Inc. Light Tackle Fising Tournament is being held from Thursday 18th October to Sunday 21st October 2018 with fishing commencing Friday morning.
Ben Doolin Builders is our major sponsor for the third year in a row, and it is his and our other sponsors contributions that help us bring this family friendly event to the region.
The tournament focuses on catch and release of game fish including Marlin and Sailfish. Points are also awarded for the catch of Mackerel, Queenfish, Tuna, Cobia, Wahoo, Dolphin Fish, Giant Trevally and Barracuda with an emphasis being placed on humane treatment as well as the release of the fish.
There will be a briefing night and light dinner on Thursday 18th October from 6pm, nibbles and drinks on Friday and Saturday and presentation/wrap up on Sunday.
Entry fees are $150 per adult, $75 per child (under the age of 16 at the start of the tournament) and $80 per captain/crew member. All anglers must be members of either the Queensland Game Fish Association (QGFA) or Gamefish Association of Australia (GFAA). The Whitsunday Game Fish Club Inc. is a club associated with the QGFA so if you are a member of the club you can participate in the tournament and only pay the entry fees.
There are heaps of raffles and prizes through the course of the tournament including prizes for funniest and most inspiring photos (as voted by the committee).
Feel free to contact us either via Facebook, email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to Stacey on 0427 467 377 if you have any queries in relation to this event.
We hope it will again be a great weekend for our members and visiting anglers and hope to see you there!
