Woodgate Beach Hotel Fishing Classic 2023

The seventh annual Woodgate Beach Hotel Fishing Classic is almost here, and we are excited to announce that this year we have partnered with Queensland Fishing Classics to host our event.

With our prize pool reaching over $100,000, this family friendly event is sure to have something for the entire family!

The classic will take place over the first weekend of the school holidays, which will see the Woodgate Beach Hotel transform into the iconic tournament precinct, with the beautiful foreshore as its backdrop.

The hotel has undergone extensive renovations and offers more space than ever before.

Dan and Steph – former MKR winners – are coming back to treat you with their cooking skills.


Our young anglers’ kids day will be held on the Saturday, with face painting, colouring-in comps, fish-cart races with Mossy and much more.

Also included on the Saturday night are our kids’ major draw down prizes, which will see one lucky young angler take home a boating package valued at over $13,000.

We’ll also see the return of Dan and Steph – former MKR winners – showing off their cooking skills, plus live entertainment with Wal Nielsen later in the evening.

Sunday will feature our fishing category winners for both adults and cadets, along with the highly anticipated adults’ major draw downs.

This year, we have all the favourites returning along with some new additions to the prize pools, so remember to pack your tow ball in case the 2023 top prize package heads home with you!

We have partnered with Bundaberg Trackset again, with our charity raffle prize being a brand new 2023 Seadoo Spark Trix.

This raffle prize is valued at over $15,000 and could be yours on Sunday 17, while supporting and raising money towards the Camp Gregory Veterans Retreat.

Information about this raffle can be found on our website, woodgatebeachhotelfishingclassic.com.au

Fishing will be hot in September, so for the best chance of taking out WBHFC 2023 prizes, be sure to pop in and see Dane and the team at Fisho’s Tackle World Hervey Bay for the gear you’ll need.

This year’s event will be the first time organisers have capped the event at 750 entrants – to ensure we can cater to everyone’s’ needs across the weekend.

This will be a year you don’t want to miss!

So visit our website and register to be part of the 2023 Woodgate Beach Hotel Fishing Classic.

The return of the Shimano Reef Science fishing show will also be at the classic.
