After many hours of planning and organisation the Gippsland Lakes Fishing Club, in conjunction with Austackle Australia, is proud to announce the launch of an exciting new fishing competition – Lakes Entrance Austackle Flathead Fishing Classic. Scheduled for 8-10 March 2014, it is a welcome event in the area.
We are pleased that Austackle Australia has sort to support this competition as it brings a major fishing tackle sponsor into our East Gippsland realm. Already having a professional team in the area only highlights the confidence Austackle has in this event.
The competition will be open to every type of angler from the professional who wants to catch that all elusive ‘big one’, to a family with children who just want to have fun and catch a fish.
There will be a club team sponsored section, where other clubs from around the area or distant shores can try their luck at out-fishing the GLFC members! Prizes will also be offered for individuals – senior and junior, secret lengths, spot prizes, ladies only, etc, with over $6,000 on offer.
We hope to encourage all, families especially, to join in the fun and activities of this competition with some great prizes up for grabs. Family tickets will be available with all costs kept to a minimum.
The ‘Pinky Baade Trophy’ will be incorporated from a previous competition that will encourage anglers to not only try their hand at flathead, but also whiting fishing.
The Gippsland Lakes Fishing Club will be hosting a dinner for up to 100 lucky anglers at the clubrooms on the Saturday night, with a chance of winning even more prizes and special guests to make the night memorable in more ways than one.
