Anglers look to hook a big one at Mathoura Fishing Classic

By Ivy Jensen

ANGLERS of every skill and ability have the opportunity to take part in a fun-filled three days at the Mathoura Fishing Classic next weekend.

The event will be held from Friday, February 28, to Sunday, March 1, at Tarragon Lodge, Picnic Point.

Attracting more than 1000 entries each year and offering more than $50,000 in prizes, the event caters for everyone from individuals through to families, from the serious fisher to the not so serious to the rank amateur.

Prizes include two boat-and-motor packages.

But the weekend is not just restricted to fishing. There will be live entertainment, children’s activities, a lure tree raffle and the chance to win your weight in beer.

The Mathoura Fishing Classic is a great weekend for everyone.
