Well over one hundred kids together with their Mums and Dads and Grandparents.
That's how many turned up last year for the Caloundra Power Boat Fishing Club's annual Take A Kid Fishing Day.
This year, club spokesperson Barry Purcell, said the club is once again looking at increasing the great roll up and is catering for one hundred and fifty kids plus their parents and grandparents.
Registration will commence at 7.30am at Ayliffe Park along the Esplanade at Golden Beach on Sunday 28th March with each child registering receiving a sample bag of fishing related goodies kindly supplied by Sunfish, Fisheries Queensland and the Australian Fishing Tackle Association.
Each child must be accompanied by an adult and bring their own rod, reel and tackle as well as some bait. Prawns, worms or yabbies will be ideal and don't forget to wear a hat and bring plenty of sun screen and something to drink. The Fishing Club will also have on hand some water as well as a small amount of yabbies.
The Australian Fishing Tackle Association, Bills Boats and Bike Hire, Caloundra Fishing World, Caloundra Power Boat Club and the Caloundra Power Boat Fishing Club will be providing quite a number of prizes to be drawn from the registration forms and presented to the lucky anglers at approximately 11.30am.
The whole promotion of the day is to get the family outdoors, and spend the morning, as a family, enjoying our great climate at the same time learning a little about our marine life and environment. The Caloundra Power Boat Fishing Club members will be on hand to assist the kids on the day in a safe and friendly venue for the whole family to fish and enjoy.
Look for the big marquee at the park and come and enjoy some family fun, a sausage sizzle and the chance to win a rod and reel combination or some vouchers and fishing tackle while showing Mum and Dad your fishing skills.
