Paul Burt casting fishos for SCIBS Shimano Live Bream Shoot Out

FOR the second year running, the SCIBS Shimano Live Bream Shoot Out is returning to the 2017 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show line-up, with fishing and boating guru Paul Burt leading the fleet.

Registrations are now open for this year’s Live Bream Shoot Out – a family-friendly, winner-takes-all contest held on Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28 during SCIBS.

Popular television presenter and Channel 7’s resident weather, beach, boating and fishing expert, Paul Burt, will be returning as SCIBS 2017 ambassador and host of the Live Bream Shoot Out.

“The legendary Sanctuary Cove fishing tournament returned to the program last year and it attracted a great turnout,” Paul said. “It brings a competitive aspect to the Show which is both entertaining and educational. We’re encouraging families, friends and amateur anglers to register and take part, while visitors can get up close to the catch and enjoy the weigh-in and release.”

With an entry fee of $50 per person, participants are required to enter as teams of two and must have their own registered boat to compete, and both bait and lured can be used to fish with.

Competitors head out at 6am, anywhere from Jumpinpin to the Nerang River except exclusion zones, and teams can bring back a maximum of 10 fish each.

Paul said he was thrilled to continue his involvement with SCIBS as ambassador and host of the SCIBS Live Bream Shoot Out.
“Anybody who has a love for boating, fishing or the marine lifestyle knows SCIBS is the Show to visit when it comes to seeing the most innovative products and enjoying a great day’s entertainment,” he said.

The Live Bream Shoot Out adds an exciting element to a massive program of events and activities at this year’s Show, which runs from May 25 to 28.

“Following popular demand, this year’s Show will again feature The Boatyard, with a greater array of trailer boats, sports and fishing boats,” said SCIBS general manager Johan Hasser. “People of all ages will find something to enjoy at SCIBS – whether you’re in the market for a yacht, a tinnie, nav equipment, fishing rod or any of the latest and greatest watersports gear. It’s all here in one spectacular location and you can enjoy it as a fun family day out to suit any budget!”

Then there’s a host of live entertainment, the kids’ zone, demonstrations and hands-on experiences. Keen anglers can find out more information and register online by visiting
