The Rainbow Beach Fishing Classic is a highlight of the coast’s calendar. Touted as Biggest Family Fishing event in southern Queensland, some huge fish were seen during the week.

Event co-ordinators said numbers were down this year from previous years, and Rick Modin has been offered Government funding for the event, but it must be held outside of school holidays. Hence the event will be moving back to the original dates outside of school holidays.

There is the possibility that the CADET division will be taken out as the numbers have dropped as well. But all the feedback has been positive – a big thank you to all the sponsors, organisers and volunteers who made it happen.

So keep July 21-29, 2017 free, and look forward to another cracking week of fishing.
