Anglers hope for a classic win

GET your rods and reels ready, because the 2015 Across The Waves Fishing Classic is on again.

This weekend, keen fishermen will be out in force to catch the biggest and best fish from estuary areas in Bundaberg.

Event organiser Warren Hitzke said there would be multiple prizes for different categories across the weekend.

"We will have categories of heaviest fish for flathead, bream, whiting and more," he said.

"There will be live and dead weigh-in stations at the Burnett Heads boat ramp and town boat ramp."

Mr Hitzke said the event, which started in 2009, was a great family day out.

"We like to encourage families to get involved. It is something different to do and a great community event," he said.

More than $25,000 in prizes will be up for grabs including a boat donated by Adrians Marine Centre and a holiday pack.

Registration is still open and can be made at The Waves Sports Club until tonight.

Registration forms will be accepted at both weigh-in stations until 9am tomorrow or 7am on Sunday and at the Thabeban Sports Complex tomorrow from noon and Sunday 8am. The cost to register is $25 (seniors), $10 (juniors) and $60 (family).
