Nagambie set for anglers
TIME TO REGISTER FOR ‘PEOPLE’S FISHING COMPETITION’
IT’S SET TO BE THE BIGGEST FISHING TOURNAMENT IN THE COUNTRY, IN ONE OF THE BEST COD FISHING LOCATIONS IN AUSTRALIA. — RHYS CREED
Keen fishermen are being encouraged to get in quick and register for this year’s GoFish Nagambie event.
Set to be Australia’s largest freshwater fishing tournament and outdoor lifestyle festival, the inaugural event will run over the Anzac Day weekend from April 25 to 28, at the Nagambie Lakes Regatta Centre on the banks of the Goulburn River and Nagambie Lakes.
GoFish Nagambie ambassador and freshwater fishing youngster Rhys Creed said he was excited about the event because of its attraction to the broader community.
‘‘It’s set to be the biggest fishing tournament in the country, in one of the best cod fishing locations in Australia — it’s the people’s fishing competition,’’ he said.
The nature of the event and competition means anyone can get out on the water and wet a line.
‘‘Bringing anglers of all abilities to one place to have a good time, learn more about fishing and for them to see what Nagambie has to offer is a huge opportunity for both the local community and the fishing industry,’’ Mr Creed said.
The tournament boasts a guaranteed $500 000 in cash and prizes.
Anglers can choose between boat, bank and kayak and prizes are awarded across each age category and targeted species.
The tournament area will span more than 30 km of waterways and the river has been specially stocked with Murray cod and golden perch ahead of the event. ● Enter now at www.gofishnagambie.com.au
