The Hervey Bay Boat Club Game Fishing Club tournament will be held this year over three days (18, 19 and 20 November 2005) and is sure to be eagerly fished by many anglers.
There will be plenty of great prizes to win, with major sponsors Shimano, Tropic Angler Lures, WIN TV and Wellsy’s Tackle all contributing to the prize pool.
On top of this, a major prize of $10,000 for the first marlin over 1000lb has been donated by Hervey Bay Boat Club Game Fishing Club. Shimano has come on board this year, providing plenty of tournament bags for juniors and the major junior prize. It’s a great opportunity to include the kids and get them fishing from a young age.
This tournament gives you a chance to have three days away, anchored at the northern end of the picturesque Fraser Island in the sheltered waters of Rooney’s Point. Mother ships and fuel transport can be arranged but book early as spots are filling up. All early booking fees will be returned in the event of bad weather, with a 5% handling fee.
The fishing this year has been exceptional with over 10 hook-ups a day on light tackle. During the final day of the tournament last year, some boats experienced over 20 hook-ups on sailfish and marlin.
So if you would like to experience some real fishing away from city pressures, come and take part in our tournament. Contact Robert Wood (Club Captain) on 0427 590 995 or send an email to --e-mail address hidden-- for more information and entry details. – HBBCGFCReads: 1429
