2022 Baffle Creek Family Fishing Festival


THE 2022 Baffle Creek Family Fishing Festival is on again.

It is going to be its biggest year yet with over $30,000 worth of cash and prizes.

This includes a 3.7 Sea Jay boat with 15hp Yamaha on a registered Oceanic trailer to be won by entrants, as well as over $3000 worth of prizes for the Family Fun Day raffles.

The fishing competition runs from Monday September 19 to Saturday September 24, and you can fish as much or as little as you choose.

You can enter as an individual (Senior $50, Junior $30, Pre-Junior $20) or as a Family Team (from $100).

There are 30 fish category prizes as well as a $500 cash mangrove jack prize to be won.

Sustainable fishing practices are encouraged and as such we are a catch snap and release comp, so there is no need to rush back to the shore for weigh-ins.

It is as simple as taking a photo of your fish with your phone on our official brag mat and uploading it to our custom app.

You can then safely release your fish back into the water – or keep a few for dinner.

If unable to use the app, you can always send your photo to our fishing club phone and we will upload it for you.

Even if you are not in the fishing comp, you can still come along to our Family Fun Day on Saturday September 24 from midday to 8pm.

There will be loads of fun and family friendly activities, including the Shimano Reef Science Fishing Show, Funtime Amusements slide and jumping castle, and our famous mullet throw competition.

You can enjoy live entertainment with Amanda Heartsong from midday, finishing up with a trio from Bundaberg called Frost Bite, with their Great Aussie Tribute Show from 5pm.

Other attractions include market stalls, food stalls, raffles, bar and more.

If you would like to have a stall at our event, contact us.

And the best thing is… it is free entry to our Family Fun Day!

So, book in your holidays and let your family and friends know that you have an awesome week planned during the first week of the school holidays.

To stay up to date, follow our Facebook page.

See you there!
