The picturesque Wallaroo on the Yorke Peninsula was the scene of an outstanding weekend of family fun on October 13-14, 2023, as the Club Marine Northbank Family Fishing Competition set sail with great enthusiasm. The event boasted an impressive prize pool of over $20,000, bringing together dedicated anglers, families, and sponsors for a memorable weekend of family, fun fishing action.

Northbank's Growing Popularity - 

A total of 25 Northbank boats participated in the event, showcasing the popularity and prowess of this iconic Australian fishing boat brand. Northbank Owner, Andrew Harris, expressed his delight at the strong presence of Northbank owners at this year's event and looks forward to having even more join in the weekend's activities in 2024. He emphasized the importance of events like this to regional towns, with an estimated $50,000 injected into the local economy over the three days.

Meet the Champions: Team Borlace - 

This year's top honors went to the talented Team Borlace, who emerged as the Overall Champion team. Their incredible skill and determination, along with a sprinkle of luck, earned them a well-deserved victory. The Grand Prize, an inflatable boat and 5hp outboard supplied by Mercury Marine, was a fitting reward for their outstanding performance.

Biggest Bag Winners: Team Talbot - 

In the Biggest Bag category, Team Talbot took home the prize, reeling in an impressive haul that left the competition in awe. Their triumph added an extra layer of excitement to the event, and they received a $2,000 Garmin Voucher as their reward.

Sponsorship Appreciation - 

The success of this competition would not have been possible without the generous support of valued sponsors. Club Marine, the Platinum Partner, deserves a special thank you for their unwavering commitment to making this competition a resounding success year after year.

Future Adventures in Store - 

With the stunning Yorke Peninsula as the backdrop, the Club Marine Northbank Family Fishing Competition will continue to be a staple in the Northbank calendar, uniting fishos, families, and friends in the pursuit of a great catch and unforgettable memories.

Looking ahead to the future, we are thrilled to announce that the Club Marine Northbank Family Fishing Competition will return in 2024, promising another year of angling excitement. Building on the resounding success of this year's event, we are committed to upholding our tradition of bringing families, friends, and fishing enthusiasts back to the scenic waters of Wallaroo for more memorable weekends.

A New Frontier in Victoria - 

In 2024, we are excited to introduce a Victorian Competition for the very first time. The Victorian Event will be separate from the Wallaroo event, offering unique opportunities for anglers to participate, connect, and showcase their skills in two distinct locations. By holding an event in Victoria, we hope to be able to bring the Club Marine Northbank Family Fishing Competition to owners from SA, VIC & even NSW for those willing to travel.
