BASSTASSTIC Bass Fishing Tournament spokesperson Trevor Crofts is urging Gympie anglers to wet a line this weekend.

Two tournaments are being held today and tomorrow – one at Cania Dam near the township of Monto and the other at a now full Borumba Dam, near the township of Imbil.

Crofts said the reason for two tourn

aments was to maximise the number of anglers taking part.

“The reason two tournament rounds are being held is because the tournament is split with a northern zone and southern zone, so it gives anglers less distance to travel and anglers can qualify in their own zone to fish in the grand final,” Crofts said.

As a low-budget tournament, fees are extremely reasonable.

Full year membership is $60 and each round participated in costs $30.

Juniors pay $10 for both yearly membership and round fees.

“Out of your entry fee, $10 goes to the stocking group, which stock the dam the tournament is being held on,” Crofts said.

Great prizes are available at each round to the top five winning anglers. This also includes a prize for the female angler with the most points.

Juniors also get a slice of the spoils, ensuring anglers hit the water with a strong competitive streak.

More information is available by contacting Trevor Crofts on 4165 4286 or by going to the tournament’s website at www.Basstasstic.com.
