Wind delay for Muster
THE cash for the best catch is still up for grabs, with Whitsunday Game Fish Club’s Mackerel Muster postponed over the weekend due to the poor fishing conditions.
Whitsunday Game Fish Club president Jamie Lovenbury said the event was all about having fun.
“It’s just a family fun fishing competition for Spanish mackerel for all ages,” he said. “We just want to get people interested in fishing, and anyone can catch a mackerel.”
The muster will now begin on Friday, June 26, with registration from 6.30-7.30pm at the Whitsunday Marine Club.
Fishing starts at 5am on Saturday, June 27.
Entry costs $35 for adults, $20 for students (16 and under) and $5 for kids (10 and under).
Saturday’s weigh-in runs 5-6pm, while Sunday’s runs 3-4pm, with anglers urged to be on time or miss out.
Presentations start on Saturday from 5pm, with a barbecue dinner.
