North Coast Fishing Bonanza kicks off

THE North Coast Fishing Bonanza presented by Gamakatsu and Evinrude is now underway in Ballina and runs through until Sunday, September 28.

Organisers told Fisho this morning that the NCFB is shaping up as another great event, with some quality fish having already been caught, most notably snapper to 95cms.

Despite rainy conditions for the start of the NCFB, school holidays have resulted in healthy numbers of families attending with kids joining in the casting competitions, checking out soft plastics demonstrations and more.

The event’s format involves four days of fishing, with competition officially kicking off last night. Last year the event was a hit with over 300 competitors chasing a wide variety of inshore and offshore species from boat and land.

There are a host of prizes on offer with a total prize pool over $100,000. All competitors including cadets have the chance to win one of two boat and motor packages, one for adults only and one for cadets only, so there is a great chance of picking up a fantastic prize.

Last year there were also a host of winners receiving sponsors’ product from Samurai rods to Shimano estuary packs, Penn Combos, Mako Eyewear, Engel fridges and eskies courtesy of the Ice Box Bloke.

This year Fishing World will once again run the photo competition with entrants having the chance to see their image online with Australia’s largest fishing media platform and the chance to win a subscription to the magazine.
