VMR Bundaberg is holding its 12th Bundaberg Family Fishing Classic on June 23, 24 and 25, 2017.
There has been a major upgrade in the lucky draw prize pool comprising three Quintrex boats with outboards and trailers. Two of the boats are Explorer 390s with mangrove jack wraps and 30hp Suzuki outboards while the big prize is now a side-console Renegade 440 with a 50hp Suzuki four-stroke outboard and colour fishfinder.
All boats are on trailers and include registrations, biminis and safety packages. The three-boat package has increased in value from $38,000 in 2016 to $50,700 in 2017.
The Classic runs from Burnett Heads over the three days, with an open offshore category as well as senior and junior estuary categories.
Estuary fishing allows for catch and release and dead weigh-ins. A registration form will be available at vmrbundabergfishingclassic.com.au along with details of the 2016 Classic.
Registration prices are $35 for adults, $10 for children and $80 for a family of two adults and three children. A strong list of category prizes will again be on offer as well as plenty of great food stalls and a licensed bar. Mark the date and get the bait… or just register for the lucky draws.
