One of the best weekends on the fishing calendar is fast approaching. The ARB Moreton Island Fishing Classic is an island-based fishing comp that has grown in leaps and bounds in a few short years. ARB and Moreton Island Adventures came up with the concept a few years ago which now sees any beach fisherman worth his salt heading across the bay around the first week of spring. A time of year when most surf species are on the chew.
With 65,000 in prizes and over 400 competitors, that’s what makes this event so much fun. And its also kid-friendly with groups and families coming for the weekend, setting up camp and enjoying some fun in the Moreton Island sun. The major prize for each nominated species is 1000 dollars and includes; Flathead, Whiting, Bream, Tailor, Dart, and Mulloway Jew. There are prizes for second and third in each division and a division for kids under 14 as well.
