Fantastic kayak package from viking kayaks for average weight snapper.

Come and join us for a fun day out fishing with the family or if fishing is not your thing then come along to the Gala and fish auction.

An exciting division is the dive/spearfishing catagory. So whether you are into holding your breath or blowing bubbles, go get those crays and scollies.

After the fishing is done, the event really kicks offs with the weigh-in, prize giving, fresh fish auction and gala hosted at Browns Bay School. There will be fun activities for the kids, bouncy castles, stalls, games, performances and a range of tasty food and drinks available for purchase. So, whether you are part of the fishing competition or not, join us at the school for the afternoon gala and buy some fresh fish for dinner too! We’ll even fillet it for you!

The event is an important fundraiser for the school. This year funds raised from the fishing competition, auction and gala all go towards the building of a dedicated Arts Centre and junior school playground. It’s a great cause and we are grateful to Westpac Bank and our supporting sponsors (Mike Pero Real Estate, Browns Bay Panelbeaters, Shore Marine, Aseco Electrical and Factory Frames) who have already made generous donations to get the fundraising started.

So, mark the 15th of March in your calendars and get ready to enjoy some Browns Bay School hospitality. Make sure the fishing rods are ready, the baits in the freezer, the dive tanks are filled, the boat is good to go, and the picnic blanket is in the boot!

Entry forms and ticketing can be also be obtained from Browns Bay School office or contacting Allanah on 021 890009 or email
