MARINE Queensland is excited to announce a huge roster of speakers and industry experts for the Keep Australia Fishing Stage at this year’s Brisbane Boat Show, from September 3-6 at the Brisbane Showgrounds.
Proudly sponsored by Keep Australia Fishing, over the four days of the show the stage will see industry experts cover a huge range topics, including how to improve your fishing, the latest in Humminbird technology, local squid catching techniques, trolling for flathead, beach fishing, kayaking for barra and much more.
The stage will this year be hosted by the two larrikins of Queensland fishing, Jason Medcalf and Jason Ehrlich. Keen to share their infectious passion for fishing, the entertaining duo will also be bringing back their special Kids Fishing Show as part of the entertainment.
Also on stage will be local fishing legend Mathew Hubbard, who will share his expert tips on fishing in the Brisbane River, and Humminbird brand manager Justin Welsh who will reveal the latest innovations in Humminbird technology.
We’ll also be seeing live talks and demonstrations from leading industry experts Nigel Webster, Nigel Middleton, David Brace, Lachy Webster, Blake Ehrlich, Sean Conlon and Shane Beardmore. Marine Queensland CEO Don Jones said, “We have lots of great speakers this year covering many interesting topics.”
“The fishing stage is always very popular and attracts huge crowds of all ages. “There will be something for the expert fisherman as well as shows for the young ones.”
