November 7th 2020
Lake Mac’s first major event since COVID-19 will be taking place in the form of family friendly, catch and release fishing competition this November. There is a big prize pool up for grabs and anglers can fish from the shoreline or from a boat out on the water.
Where & When
The completion will run on the waters of Lake Macquarie over the weekend from Friday the 13th to Sunday the 15th of November. Fishing can take place from the shore around the lake or out on the water in a boat. The Competition area encompasses the tidal waters of Lake Macquarie and all public beaches in the Lake Macquarie City Council area.
Catch & Release
In respect of the environment and our waterways, the competition is strictly catch and release. There are four target species of Bream, Flathead, Tailor and Whiting. Captured fish will be photographed on brag mats before being returned to the water. The photographs will used to submit the angler’s entry.
The completion boasts prizes to the value of $21,000 over the three days. There’s prizes for the biggest fish caught (and released) for both kids and grown-ups. Prize packs for entires closest to the mystery length. Plus, all entries go into the draw to win in a $3000 Prize Draw, which means you don’t even have to catch a fish to win!
The Bay Hotel Motel offers great family friendly accomodation and is conveniently located to provide close access to a long list of nearby boat ramps. For more information and the best room rates available, click here >>>
