With this year’s Baffle Creek Family Fishing Festival fast approaching, it’s time to get those entry forms filled out and book your accommodation.
At the 2023 event, we’re giving away an $11,990 boat package, thanks to Bundaberg Marineland, which includes a Sea Jay 370 Nomad HS with a Yamaha F15LMHA on a registered Redco trailer.
As per previous years, we will provide Queensland registration, river safety gear, fuel tank, rod holders, drink holders and utility holder.
The main fishing prize of $500 cash for the biggest mangrove jack caught during the week-long event is sponsored by Tackle World Bundaberg.
We have 22 categories to fish for seniors, juniors and pre-juniors, with some great prizes on offer.
The Wednesday night catch up will be held at the Baffle Creek Sport and Recreation Grounds, we’ll have a scoreboard, update raffles – including a trip to Lady Musgrave Island – a lucky door prize and a few activities to keep the kids busy.
The Baffle Creek Men’s Shed will be doing hamburgers, hot dogs and chips, and the Baffle Creek Fishing Club will have the bar open from 5.30pm.
Don’t forget to bring your crab pots because the biggest mud crab also gets a prize.
The competition kicks off on Monday September 18 and you’ll need to come to the sport and rec grounds – at 569 Coast Rd near the Wartburg State School – to pick up your goody bag and competition ID cards.
The ‘funday’ kicks off at 12.30pm on Saturday 23.
We’ll have rides for the kids, a mullet throw competition, stall holders, heaps to eat and drink, raffles, promo draws and the presentations, finishing the night off with the major draw prize for the
senior, junior and pre junior categories.
BCFFF is a catch-snap and release event, so you’ll need to photograph all eligible fish and download to the app, which will be supplied on sign up.

See you all there.
