For those that have never been, Toogoom is a beautiful seaside town of Hervey Bay. It is about halfway between Pialba and Burrum Heads and is a great place to escape for a holiday, or just for the day. Toogoom is great for birdwatching, sailboarding, canoeing, sailing, boating, and fishing. – Kim – Editor
The Toogoom Family Fishing Competition, held on the 21st to 23rd of September, is an event where everything to do with fishing, families, and fund-raising comes together. Anglers both fun-orientated and serious, fish their hearts out in the lead up to the excitement of the fast-paced presentations and festivities.
The Club is fortunate that their sponsors have again thrown their full support behind this major event. At a previous competition, one major sponsor mentioned that they support this event not only because of the emphasis on family involvement but also because of the professional manner in which the Club conducted itself over previous years of the competition.
