The dates for the event are - 28th to 30th August 2015.  As well as the usual Senior and Junior entries, this year sees the introduction of a CORPORATE TEAM CHALLENGE ENTRY which enjoys some special benefits.  To read the details and sign up your team, click the link above to download the entry form, complete the details and get it in to the Yeppoon Coast Guard with your entry fee.

There are a couple of format changes to the event this year. The main change is the drawing of the major prizes.  As a conclusion to the Senior Random Draws on Saturday 29th August 2015, the major prize of a boat will be drawn AND as a conclusion to the Senior Random Draws on Sunday 30th August 2015, a number of nominated major value prizes, including a VW Amarok Utility, will be drawn. See the TLFC Rules for all the details.

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. 

Our major prizes for this year are once again a motor vehicle and a boat package!  Check out the prizes menu tab above for all the details.
Our two big winners from last year enjoyed picking up a VW Beetle and a Quintrex boat package!

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 actually go fishing 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.
