The Bluefin Lake Maroon Fishing Classic is scheduled for 13-15 November 2015. Now in its third year, the competition is shaping to be bigger and better than ever.
Bluefin Boats is once again the major sponsor with two random draw prize boats to be given away. The senior prize boat is the 4.15 Tournament Drifter, powered by a 40hp Mercury 4-stroke outboard, and it’s loaded on a Dunbier trailer. An awesome prize, without a doubt!
The junior lucky draw boat is the 3m Bluefin Catfish powered by a Minn Kota Riptide electric motor. Along with these major boat prizes, there are fish category prizes and random giveaways, ensuring plenty of winners over the course of the weekend. The sponsors also realise that the juniors are the future of recreational angling and they are well and truly looked after.
During the competition weekend, there are guest presentations from expert anglers, live music and kids’ movies. There is also a catering service, which makes it that much easier for the angler to focus on fishing and relaxation.
The competition is catch, photo and release and prizes are awarded on the length of the fish. All fishing styles, including bait, are permitted and so are all fishing craft.
Registrations are through the Sports Tuition website. There is an early bird registration price of $30 Senior and $15 Junior, which also places participants in a random prize draw. There is also merchandise options and any purchase will place participants into a prize pool. So get all the kids involved, get your mates involved. It’s the comp not to be missed.
