Woodgate Beach Hotel Fishing Classic

THE sixth annual Woodgate Beach Hotel Fishing Classic is on this September from Friday 16 to Sunday 18, located at the newly renovated Woodgate Beach Hotel.

This event has grown from strength to strength over the past five years of competition, seeing over 500 entrants registered last year and a whopping prize pool of nearly $65,000.

This being our sixth year, we have set new targets and new goals to go bigger and better and hope to draw in over 750 competitors.

We have not only raised our entrant numbers in 2022 but also our prize pool, which is up to a massive $90,000 plus and growing.

This will be our biggest year to date.

We have some exciting features for the 2022 comp, with the return of the Shimano Reef Science Fishing Show and My Kitchen Rules winners Dan and Steph are coming to demonstrate their skills in the kitchen and show you some great ways to cook and serve your catch!

We also have the return of our crowd favourite and ever-popular best dressed team event.

Last year’s winners, the Stunned Mullets, will be there in force in their custom outfits from our friends at Mad Keen Fishing ready to judge and crown our 2022 winners.

On Saturday morning, we will play host to the Bundaberg broadcasting team Matty and Trace from Hitz 939, where we will be giving away a swag of prize packs from Yeti and Spotters.

We have so much in store this year – we’re just warming up as we head into September!

We have worked hard over the past 12 months to improve our comp and, to make it more user friendly, we’ve launched our new website.

You will find all things 2022 fishing comp related via our new website, from rules to prizes, what’s on and accommodations – we have you covered.

Oh, and you can also register online this year!

In addition, we are super excited to introduce our online shop, which is proving to be a huge success.

You can pre-purchase all this year’s comp apparel prior to the event, so it is ready for collection on your arrival to the Woodgate Beach Hotel Fishing Classic.

Be sure to jump online and check out the website, see the sponsors that helped make this year possible and look at last year’s gallery of photos to get a feel for what’s in store for 2022.

There is even a recap video on our home page what will definitely get you excited for what’s to come!
