Join in on a unique tournament – the Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic, July 21-29 and you may catch a big one like Byron Rush
The Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic is one of the few remaining successful fishing tournaments on the eastern seaboard. This major saltwater fishing event will be run in July, commencing Friday 21 to Saturday 29.
The event caters for people of all levels of fishing experience and all major prizes are given based on participation rather than competitive spirit. This year there are four categories:

- Jew fish
- Reef fish: snapper, red emperor, pearl perch, parrot, sweetlip
- Big fish: fish over 8kg and does NOT include any of the above species or cod, rays, shark and billfish.
You don’t have to fish all the time, you can fish for one day or all eight. There is a full weekend, so those local people who can’t get the time off work can still participate and be part of the grand finale on the following Saturday. You don’t even have to catch a fish or fish to have a chance at the major prizes!
