The Rotary club of Bellbridge and the Commercial Club fishing section are proud to present the Yamaha Lake Hume Classic on November 5 and 6.
After the great success of last year when 492 competitors took to the lake and competed for more than $25,000 in prizes, this year promises to be even bigger and better.
The event’s epicentre will be the Lake Hume Tourist Park behind the waterslide, where all registrations, meals, presentations and sponsor displays will take place under a much bigger marquee. The waterslide will operate in daylight hours and the pool is open to all competitors for a dip after a long day on the water.
All competitors will receive an info pack containing stubby holder, event details sheet, a map of the lake with weigh stations marked and entry into the major prize draw and the many spot prizes that will be drawn on Saturday night. Junior and lady entrants will also get a dip into the lucky lure box.
Entry is $60 for adults and $25 for juniors (under 16 on November 4).
There are some changes in the way prizes are given away. Up to 50 lucky door prizes will be drawn on Saturday night, along with the early bird prize.
The random draws for yellowbelly will now have prizes for first, second and third-biggest in senior and junior sections.
There will be an overall champion section in senior and junior for male and female, the winners determined by the total fish caught any species (carp excluded).
The teams winners will be determined on total fish caught rather than total length. Other species categories remain unchanged.
There will be random mystery length draws for yellowbelly each day.
The lure wall will be back: All registered anglers can enter simply by donating a lure to the wall.
Old, new, ugly or different, if you put a lure on the wall you go into a random draw and first number drawn out wins the whole wall.
So pack up the family and get along for a great weekend at the Yamaha Lake Hume Classic – you may even win a boat and Yamaha motor package. – Hume Classic
