Family Fishing Classic to wind up

TONIGHT is the final weigh-in for the Mitsubishi Motors Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic.

While the big prizes have been given away, competition spokesperson Linda Adam said the Classic was more than just fishing and prizes, it was about having a good time with mates.

She said at the Thursday night weigh-in the weather held off and it didn't rain for the first time.

“We had a lot of women weigh in fish and they won some great prizes,” she said.

The leader board changed with Robert Fullerton catching a nice 500gram whiting and Anthony Bell reeling in a 750 gram dart.

Live entertainment kicked off at the Sport and Recreation Club with the fishermen and women having a great night out.

Adam said the Corona girls were a hit with both the men and women.

“The girls were giving out free raffle tickets and drew out four major prizes for the fisherman.”

“The VB truck was giving out free entry including drinks and nibbles to the ladies for ladies day.”

“It was fun night out,” she said.

Tonight the fishing Classic winds up with the major draw of the boat and organisers are hoping contestants will line up for the convoy against closures on Sunday.
