2015 North Coast Fishing Bonanza set to sizzle

THE 2015 North Coast Fishing Bonanza presented by Gamakatsu and Evinrude is on again from September 23 to 27.

This is a prime time for school holidays, so if you’re looking for something to get the kids involved in, look no further. The format involves four days of fishing, starting Wednesday night to allow for bad weather, and finishing Sunday. Last year the event was a hit, with over 300 competitors chasing a wide variety of inshore and offshore species from boat and land.

This year adults will compete in a variety of fish categories including snapper, pearl perch, mulloway, tailor, kingfish/cobia, amberjack/samson fish, whiting, bream, blackfish, flathead and bass.
For cadets, there is a range of offshore and inshore categories including snapper and mulloway, bream and flathead to target, while juniors can fish for the usual estuary suspects of flathead and bream as well as snapper and bass.

There are a host of prizes on offer, with a total prize pool over $80,000. All adult competitors have the chance to win a boat, motor and trailer package from TABs and E-TEC plus Lowrance sounders and Engel fridge/freezers. Cadets have a Hobie Kayak up for grabs as well as electrical products, bicycles and fishing gear.

At the show site on the banks of the Richmond River, daily talks will attract plenty of interest with some enthusiastic youngsters sure to be involved in the soft plastics demonstrations.

Last year a host of winners received sponsor product in the form of Samurai rods, Atomic packs, Shimano estuary packs, Penn combos, Engel fridges and Eskies courtesy of the Ice Box Bloke.
