Fishing Classic

Moreton Island Fishing Classic

What’s better than a trip to Moreton Island? A fishing trip to Moreton Island of course! And the best thing? You don’t even have to catch a fish to WIN BIG! There’s awesome prizes and giveaways up for grabs from a range of great sponsors including 4WD gear and accessories, fishing and camping gear, vehicle ferry transfers and of course a whole lot of CASH!

So what’s the big deal about the Classic? No big deal, but we think the ARB Moreton Island Fishing Classic is pretty awesome. It’s chilled out, no fuss real people just doing what they love to do – fishing and having a good time with their mates! We don’t want it to be anything more than that, and our goal is to keep the ARB Moreton Island Fishing Classic as a beach fishing competition that is suitable for everyone!

Fishing Classic FAQ

How much does it cost to enter?

The earlier you book, the better the price so jump on the early bird deals as soon as they are released. Tip: if you’re not on the mailing list you can jump on it here.

What can I win?

We’re not letting the fish out of the bag just yet, but with ARB as the major sponsor, you can be assured we are giving away an amazing array of 4WD, fishing and camping gear – over $65 000 worth actually! Make sure to like the facebook page here and sign up for regular updates.

How do I sign up?

It’s easy, just click the big book now button at the top of the website and follow the prompts from there. Don’t forget to book your vehicle on the MICAT (you will be sent details after booking your Fishing Classic entry on how to receive discounted fares). 

Are there any MICAT specials for my vehicle?

There sure are! Vehicles under 5.2m are $175 (over 5.2m add $36.00) and we have a great vehicle + trailer special for $299.00 – you’ll be sent details on how to receive the discounts once you’ve booked your competitor entry.

Where are the weigh-ins?

All weigh-ins and the opening night festivities are at Castaways, Bulwer, located on the northern end of the island (you can find a map of the island here). Luckily, if you’ve forgotten to pack your toothbrush or your beers, you can pick them up at the Castaways store – they stock most things you will need from fuel to firewood, milk & bread. There’s an on-site café there too in case you get sick of instant coffee!

When do I have to be there?

The fishing officially begins at 12.01am Thursday but you’d be crazy to miss the fun opening night on Wednesday night where you can pick up your registration packs, have a chat and enjoy the free BBQ. It’s a great time to meet up with the other competitors and try and weasel the best fishing spots out of them! There will be some great random prize draws as well.

Official weigh-in times are:
Thursday to Saturday: From 3pm – 4pm with prize presentations following.
Sunday: From 9.30am – 10.30am (must be in the line no later than 10am) with prize presentation and major draws following.

What are the rules?

You can download the full rules and regulations for the competition here. You are responsible for knowing the legal fishing zones and adhering to them; you will find them here.

What if I can’t make registration night?

No worries, just pick it up at the first weigh in on Thursday.
