Women’s Fishing Classic 2023

Women from around the Sunshine Coast and greater Moreton Bay region, including the Gold Coast, are invited to take part in the 2023 Women’s Fishing Classic.

Participants are encouraged to register early.

Women with all skill sets are encouraged to apply – from novice beginners to fierce competitors.

The founder of the Women’s Fishing Classic Nicole Robinson said the competition was a way to connect with fun kind like-minded women.

Families and individuals who register will receive special packs, while stocks last, including brag mats, sponsor products and special draw prize entries.

Upon registration, participants are included in the WFC group, with access to workshops, training videos, special invites, discounts and, most importantly, support and encouragement from other participants.

“There has never been a better time to connect with others,” Nicole said.

“I am elated so many women and children have appreciated a women-only fishing tournament, however I never anticipated the incredible amount of other benefits the competition has had on local businesses, tourism and the health and wellbeing of everyone included.”

The month-long event has attracted women from Inskip Point, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and the Tweed regions, who then support and connect with each other throughout the year.

Participants make new fishing friends, take part in invited offshore fishing charters or simply enjoy the feeling of overwhelming support by sharing their fishing adventures online.

The competition has assisted local businesses and, with women’s recreational fishing on the rise, it also provides an opportunity for family fun and community spirit.

The 2023 Women’s Fishing Classic has generated interest for local businesses, with sponsors welcomed to apply.

The major prizes are set to be the biggest yet, with a $13,000 boat and outboard motor package, donated by Wynnum Marine.

Winners of individual fish categories have the chance to win products and cash prizes.

There are opportunities to win in both offshore and land-based categories, plus all-round categories such as ‘most-caught’ and ‘size’ provide other chances to win.

The competition provides an excellent opportunity for research too, with tag-and-release training available for members – all catches are recorded to aid in sustainable fishing practises and provide a greater understanding of our local waters.

The Women’s Fishing Classic starts May 6 and finishes June 3, 2023.

Nicole encourages participants to register now to benefit from the support and education awareness around the sport, tides, community and adventures to be had over the upcoming months leading up to and during the event.
