Scintillating was one word used to describe the Downtown Toyota Moreton Bay Fishing Classic.
For the first time the annual event was held over a full week and competitors took advantage of choosing their time across the 7 days to stake a claim for a winning catch.
The fun wasn’t just on the water with solid crowds coming down to take in the family fun atmosphere.
As you can see through the pictures there was plenty of ripping snares from all ages and skill levels.
The total prize pool was $28,500 which was made up of $12,000 in Fishing prizes, $15,000 in random draws for all entrants and $1,500 in prizes for the Fishing Simulator. To cap off the celebrations there was a $1,000 cash-draw on the final day, Sunday 23rd July.
The Mossops Tackle World Fishing Simulator was proved popular and very entertaining to say the least.
The Open competition included 11 categories while the Juniors competed across five. The winners are listed in the below scoreboard pictures.
