2016 Bluefin Sports Tuition Fishing Classic Review

The first Bluefin Sports Tuition Fishing Classic was held at Moogerah Dam on 2-4 December 2016. For the past three years, the competition was called the Bluefin Lake Maroon Fishing Classic, but it was re-branded this year. The 2016 competition base was Camp Moogerah. The large air conditioned hall was a God-send as we encountered extreme heat over the weekend, and with this in mind, the competition is likely to be moved to August for 2017.

Congratulations to all the prize winners. I know the kids certainly got spoiled as well. Thanks to all the generous sponsors who made the event possible. Bluefin Boats, L. Wilson & Co, Damiki, Nordic Stage, Eva Kool, Bush n Beach Fishing Magazine, Qld Fishing Monthly and Shane Whell Mobile Marine Mechanic.
