Wet a line and catch a prize

Central and North Burnett Times - - THREE RIVERS FISHING CLASSIC -

CAP off the school hol­i­days by tak­ing the fam­ily down for a great week­end of fish­ing. Mun­dub­bera is the place to be this Satur­day and Sun­day for the An­nual Three Rivers Fish­ing Clas­sic.

“It is good to see so many ju­niors and fam­i­lies com­ing to the event,” or­gan­iser Suzanne Mobbs said.

“The rivers have been fish­ing very well over the past weeks with some nice yellowbelly, bass and the odd sil­ver be­ing caught be­low and above the weir.”

Com­peti­tors don’t need to fish to nom­i­nate, and can still go in the draw to win prizes.

“Com­peti­tors who want to fish can an­gle the three rivers sur­round­ing Mun­dub­bera, which are the Auburn River, Boyne River and the Bur­nett River,” Ms Mobbs said.

“The boat ramp is at the revamped ski area.”

Con­tin­u­ous weigh-ins will be held from 11.30am–12.30pm and from 5.30–6.30pm Satur­day, and from 10–11am Sun­day.

There will be a multi-draw fol­low­ing each weigh-in and ma­jor pre­sen­ta­tion on Sun­day.

All nom­i­na­tions will go into a draw to have the chance to win a Minn Kota elec­tric out­board and a $250 cash prize on Satur­day night, and on Sun­day all nom­i­na­tions have the chance to win a $250 cash prize and a fish­ing rod combo, which will be drawn after the multi-draws at lunchtime.

Those who are par­tic­i­pat­ing are re­minded that Queens­land boat­ing and fish­ing rules ap­ply.

Reg­is­tra­tions will be taken from 5.30pm on Fri­day and from 6am on Satur­day morn­ing at Martin Love Oval. For more in­for­ma­tion, phone Ms Mobbs on 0437 653 431.
