IT is time to wave the greenback flag for the Sunshine State and stand up for our fishing mates!
A Queenslander knows what it is like to bleed maroon, so fish in your Queensland hot spot and bring those big fish to Pottsville and take home the shield. Game on!
Enter the 32nd annual Lions charity Pottsville Beach Sports Greenback Fishing Comp from June 8-9, 2019.

If you can’t register online, you will need to go to the Pottsville sign-on location and pay cash to register.
