This year, Mason Bignell will compete above his age group in the cadet category!
Entries are already up for the 30th Rainbow Beach Fishing Classic and you don’t want to miss out on the birthday celebrations!
It is eight full-on fun days of fishing and entertainment, July 1 to 9. Held in the school holidays, it gives families a chance to play and fish together in our beautiful waterways.
Due to public requests the Junior category has been changed to include children up to 13 years of age. However, if you would like to register a child 10 years or older into the Cadet category you are able to do so by paying the cadet entry fee.
Young Mason Bignell loves the annual event, his Mum Brooke said, “He put in a stellar effort last school holidays, which really paid off!
“He is entering this year above his age level, in cadets, to enable him to fish ‘outside’ and weigh in, in the reef fish category. He is stoked!”
For other youngsters, the Kids Day is on the first Sunday of the event, July 3. Jumping castles, face painting and balloons are all free for the kids after 3pm. Every child on the day entered into the competition will receive a gift bag.
For our older entrants and ladies – it’s double the chance:
Veterans Day is on Tuesday, July 5. Competitors over the age of 60, “Veteran classification” are able to compete against each other, with the opportunity to win species and open competition species first and second prizes.
Ladies Day is on Thursday, July 7. All women in the adult classification are able to compete against each other, again with the opportunity to win species and open competition species first and second prizes.
