The Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic 2020 will be held from Thursday November 26 until Sunday November 29, 2020.

The start time for the competition is 4pm when you can pick up your competition cards from the Sports Club during the pre-event talk, and you can start fishing from this time also.

The first round of fishing competition registration tickets have been sold out. A total of 300 adult registrations and a further 100 registrations, split between the cadets and juniors, have been sold. This brings the club into line with current Queensland Covid restrictions, adhering to the one person per 4sq metre requirement.

We hope the restrictions continue to ease, allowing us to pre-sale more tickets in the coming weeks. With the “current” restrictions we are allowing the fishing competition ticket holders entry only into the fishing competition site and weigh-in area. This sadly means no spectators at this stage.

The Sports Club Manager said: “We are totally surprised at how quickly we have sold out of the first round of tickets, the support shown for this event in a year like this, while we continue to recover from the snow-ball effects of this pandemic, is AMAZING!  We are SO excited and can’t wait to see everyone.

“We will be giving away a boat every weigh-in night (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). Three Squirrel 3.89mt aluminium tinnies valued at $3,100.00 each (boat only), so if you win a tinnie, you and your mates have to work out how to get your new boat home THAT NIGHT!

“The Grand Prize is a Stessco Catcher 4.09mt limited aluminium tinnie with a Tohatsu 20 HP outboard 4-stroke and a Seatrail Boat Trailer with the safety gear valued at $12,000!”
