The Aberdeen Bowling and Fishing Club is conducting their 14th annual Glenbawn Fishing Classic on October 4 and 5, 2003.
Glenbawn is well known in angling circles as being one of the best Australian bass impoundments in Australia, but the less publicised golden perch fishery is also first class and the occasional Murray cod and catfish spice up anglers’ catches.
Last year the brave move was made to make the tournament a catch and release only event. This year will be the same, and competitors will be allowed to fish with bait, lure and fly. Fishing starts at 6am on Saturday morning with competitors measuring and recording the lengths of their fish in front of a witness from another boat. All fish must swim away in a healthy state.
Registration on Friday is a must and anglers can register from 3pm onwards to be in the hunt for some of the fantastic prizes. Entry fees are $10 for seniors, $5 for juniors or $20 per team (between two and four anglers) and there will be a secret weight competition that will cost individuals $5 to enter.
