Kurrimine Beach

Kurrimine Beach Fishing Competition

THE Kurrimine Beach Fishing Club is located at a small seaside town on the beautiful far north Queensland coast.

The warm tropical waters of Kurrimine Beach are always teeming with fish of every variety.

From the flathead and whiting that kids love to catch on the beach, along with a kaleidoscope of pelagic fish, to the barramundi that keen fishers wrestle in Maria and Liverpool creeks.

Without a doubt, perhaps the most common species are mackerel, caught at the Patches and Silver Sands, only a few kilometres offshore.

The pristine waters of King Reef, 100m offshore, is a diver’s playground.

In shallow water with notable bommie hotspots, divers can selectively target prized table-eating reef fish species, including coral trout and tropical crayfish.

The hard-working competition committee extends a warm welcome to all competitors and spectators to the tenth annual fishing and spearfishing competition.

As always, our family friendly event will have plenty for the whole family.

With a DJ, food vans, bar, jumping castle, Lara the clown and beach games – to name a few highlights.

Our sincere appreciation to our wonderful sponsors – their generosity provides the event with many fantastic prizes.

Remember, you don’t have to catch a fish to win the promotional super and nightly draws.

The event kicks off on Friday September 16, with new nominations available until 7pm, followed by the official briefing of competition rules.

The big screen will telecast the football and we will have our nightly promotional draws throughout the event.

Saturday will be all about fishing, with weigh-ins being conducted from midday to 6pm.

Brag night provides a great opportunity to brag about the one that got away and the one that made it into the boat.

Sunday will be the final chance to land the big one, with weigh-ins from 10am to 2pm.

And the official presentation will take place on Sunday, when the category winners, champions and overall champions are presented with their prizes.

The final draw will be the promotional super draw, where one lucky adult angler will win $25,000 and one junior angler will win $2000.

This year, with the support of an anonymous donor, we invite a family whose child is battling an illness to attend our competition.

The family is provided with a free weekend away to relax and enjoy our beautiful beach, as well as having the opportunity to catch a big fish.

So, if you’re looking to get away from it all, come and visit us at the beautiful Kurrimine Beach.

We look forward to sharing our piece of paradise with you.
