CFC round 3 BP Dam
  |  First Published: February 2015

Over 140 anglers fronted up at Yallakool Caravan Park on Bjelke-Peterson Dam for Round 3 of the Austackle – Bluefin Country Fishing Classic. The weather was hot, and so too was the fishing!

Entrants can compete in Deadweight or Catch and Release categories, using bait or lures to target bass, golden perch, silver perch and catfish. In the interest of sustainable fishing, only one fish per species is permitted to be weighed in for the deadweight category. Catch and release points are cumulative with one point allocated for every centimetre of legal size fish.

76 anglers entered the Catch and Release section. They caught and released back into the water a total of 654 fish. In the deadweight section, 67 anglers took home one fish each for a feed.

In between hook ups, a dip in the dam to cool off was the way to go. During the afternoon cool down the kids were entertained with a jumping castle, along with a hot meal and a few cold cans for the adults provided by Barambah United Football club.

The event boasts a random draw prize pool of over $100,000. So regardless of how many fish you catch, every entrant stands a chance of taking home a share in the prizes including heaps of Austackle lures, rods, reels, Lowrance sounders, Tonic Eyewear products and more!

The Grand Final, at BP Dam (18-19th April 2015) boasts 2 Bluefin Boat packages as major random draw prizes, and more! To qualify, anglers only need to have fished one round.

The last chance to qualify is on 28th Feb-1st March at Paradise Dam, Mingo Crossing, so get in early for this fun, family friendly event!
