Brisbane Yamaha Reel! Wivenhoe Classic
« on: March 22, 2017, 11:23:59 AM »
PLENTY of Australian Bass and Golden Perch which call Wivenhoe dam home are the bounty behind the Brisbane Yamaha Reel! Wivenhoe Classic.

Somerset Regional Council unveiled the non-professional fishing competition set to cast off from July 21 to 23, making the most of ideal water conditions.

It's good timing for boaties as boating permits for Wivenhoe and Somerset dams, the only two Seqwater sites for which permits were required, will be scrapped by July.

The move will save anglers who use the dams to fish up to $100 a year.

Experienced angler and event organiser Garry Fitzgerald said the competition was well timed with plenty of Australian Bass and Golden Perch in abundance.

"It's a great weekend of fishing and camping and the comp's open to those fishing from kayak, boat, canoe or from the shore," he said.

"There's been some impressive catches in that area before and I'm looking forward to seeing the calibre of what comes in."

The competition will be will run on a secret length basis based on catch, photograph, measure and release, while maintaining Queensland Fisheries and Maritime regulations.

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the event would be family friendly with a strong presence of local vendors providing food and drinks on site.

"Some great random prize draws will be on offer, which will definitely be worth sticking around for," he said.

Council is seeking minor sponsors for prizes such as fishing gear, and outdoors equipment.

To make a contribution, contact the council on (07) 5424 4000 or email mail@somerset.qld.gov.au

The council is in discussions with Mr Fitzgerald and Seqwater to coordinate the contest.

Further announcements will follow with event details in coming months

I fish because the little voices in my head tell me to.

I've heard that Council have postponed this event until sometime in 2018.
