There really is no other place quite like the Abrolhos Islands and what better way could there be to enjoy a week off work?
All competitors will make their way over to Big Pigeon Island for the briefing and Calcutta held at the local pub on April 13th at 4pm.
Fishing commences on the 14th at 7am. Lines out is at 4pm each day unless hooked up. This is a perfect time to explore the islands, relax and refuel. The last day of fishing is the 19th, all boats must be in on time. Crews will meet up at Big Pigeon for a celebratory night of food, fun and prizes starting at 6pm.
This tournament uses IGFA rules and further rules will be given out at the briefing night. They can also be requested ahead of time for anyone who is new.
This is a WAGFA sanctioned tournament so everyone must be a WAGFA member. I would like to thank all our fantastic sponsors, who make this event possible and urge you to support them in return, the Wallaby’s community and all the crews involved who make this event so memorable. Please forward your application forms to me ASAP and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call.
Here’s to a great week of fishing!
