Fishing the focus at the Adelaide Boat Show

Fishing is a focus at the 2018 Adelaide Boat Show.

FOR SA’s anglers who enjoy either the open waters off the coast or prefer our inland waterways, the Adelaide Boat Show promises new vessels, the latest rods, tackle, accessories and loads of technology designed to make your day on the water even more enjoyable.

South Australia’s most comprehensive boating show is open from June 15 – 17 at the showground and is the place to choose and buy your rod and reel combo, as well as fish finders, hard and soft lures, bait buckets, landing nets or even your next boat to go with all your new gear.

From family runabouts to fishing tinnies, this show presents the best in recreational and serious fishing. If you want fishing and boating advice with guidance from industry experts, the popular fishing clinics are not to be missed. Hear stories from industry experts, and pick up a few tips and tricks that otherwise might take years to master. Danny Simpson, who fishes the deep blue SA waters out of the Southern Yorke Peninsula presents the Tuna Masterclass, while Michael Wilson talks about fishing the mighty Murray River, including landing Murray cod, golden perch, redfin and other freshwater species. Mark O’Connell, who has fished for snapper in SA gulfs and surrounding waters for many years presents his best advice when going after a big red, and Greg James brings his nearly 50 years of recreational fishing experience to the show, particularly when adding King George whiting to the catch.

All entry tickets to the show are $10, with children 16 years of age and under admitted free, when accompanied by an adult.

Alan Blake, President of the Boating Industry Association Ltd staging the event, said fishing represents the great Australian pastime of enjoying the outdoors with friends and family. “The Adelaide Boat Show brings together the leading dealers and manufacturers from across the state, Australia and beyond, ready to showcase the latest in fishing, boating and marine technology,” he said. “This is the show in SA where all your questions about spending more time on the water and catching bigger and better fish can be answered.”

South Australia’s boating and fishing facilities are world class, and the Boating Industry Association Ltd is responding to local industry growth by continuing the tradition of this boat show with a long and proud history. “Even small, but well-equipped marinas have sprung up in coastal regional centres and there’s high-quality infrastructure in place for boaters of all persuasions,” Alan Blake said. “The state is fast becoming a well-established destination for cruising, long-range fishing or inshore water sports.”
