The Tight Lines Fishing Classic comes to a close for another successful year! The weather was kind once again and a good time was had by one and all.
Congratulations go out to all the winners. Particularly to Frank Richardson who scored the top prize of the VW beetle and also to Craig Badkin who was the lucky winner of the Quintrex boat package. Well done guys.
Everyone please mark your diaries for (about) the same time next year. We'd love to see you all (and your friends) back again for another great weekend.
Stay tuned for the dates for the 2015 event. We will post them here as soon as they are announced.
This major fundraising event for Yeppoon Coast Guard allows it to provide a 24/7 marine rescue service on the Capricorn Coast that now averages 150 assists per year.
Congratulations go to our major winners for 2014 (above) and indeed to all who picked up a prize at the event. Click on our Facebook link to see the many photo memories taken over the weekend of the festivities!
Welcome to the home of the Yeppoon Coast Guard Tight Lines Fishing Classic. The premier fishing and fund raising event held at Keppel Bay Marina in Rosslyn Bay in Central Queensland (Yeppoon) every year in August. Funds raised from the annual event are destined for the maintenance and purchase of new equipment and facilities for the local Coast Guard flotilla QF11. Your entry fee will be going towards a great cause and in fact may help to save someone's life through the selfless volunteer work of the Coast Guard. Your entry is needed!
It's important to know that there's no need to enter the actual fishing competition to be in the running for the fantastic random draw prizes.
Just buy yourself a ticket, be there when the draws are called, and you're in with a chance to win!
If you are considering berthing at Keppel Bay Marina for the event then you are in luck as there are extra berths available.
Please tell your friends about the event and spread the word far and wide. We want to make the Tight Lines Fishing Classic the premier event of its type on the August/September calendar!
The Tight Lines Committee.
