It’s on again, the Wilson Moreton Bay and Offshore Family Fishing Challenge.
The Redland Bay Amateur Fishing Club will be celebrating 23 years of hosting this great event with L.Wilson & Co. having the naming rights for several years straight. Sponsors, such as Events in Tents who supply the marquee, tables, chairs, all the yummy food and kids rides, and Wilson, ensure this event can happen. The Wilson Moreton Bay and Offshore Family Fishing Challenge is recognised as a premier event in the Redlands and attracts many sponsors and contributors from across SEQ.
There is plenty of entertainment for the kids with rides and music, glow in the dark products and face painting. Adults can relax and talk about the one that got away in the Challenge Bar, check out some great fishing gear stalls and enjoy some fantastic food and musical entertainment.
The major prize is supplied by Stones Corner Marine, so make sure to visit the guys at Stones Corner Marine for all your boating needs.
A new sponsor of the Wilson Moreton Bay and Offshore Family Fishing Challenge is Bonza Graphics who is providing us with a total boat wrap and brag mats.
Early entry this year will reward the first 150 people who enter will receive a FREE gift bag of significant value. This bag is a Wilson Sure Catch fish bag containing a Bonza Graphics brag mat, stickers and loads of other bag fillers
This year promises to be bigger and better than ever and we have fingers crossed that the weather Gods smile on us.
We will be introducing some new categories this year. Firstly the tagged fish will be replaced by three new categories from which there will be guaranteed winners.
There is the Secret Weight. This will be a nominated fish for seniors and juniors.
A Catch and Release Flathead is also on offer, which will be for the largest flathead caught. This will require a photo taken of the fish on a brag mat with your entry tag in view.
The third new category is a Grand Slam. This will entail offshore and inshore sections.
Offshore will be an accumulation of weight for snapper, pearl perch, sweetlip and cobia. Inshore will be whiting, bream, snapper and mulloway.
There will be prizes for just about everything and everyone...
The fishing categories will include junior, ladies and senior daily prizes and you don’t even need to fish to be in the chance for a win. With 5 daily junior and 10 daily senior calls for the lucky hat to be in the draw for the major prizes which are drawn on the final day. Everyone with a lucky hat walks away with a prize. Plus there are daily draws for juniors and seniors, the magazine draw and many raffles up for grabs. The Wilson Moreton Bay and Offshore Family Fishing Challenge has stacks and stacks of prizes kindly supplied by our valued sponsors.
