SHELLY BEACH TUNA BONANZA & SKI-BOAT FESTIVAL
30 JUNE–3 JULY 2022
One of the country’s best-known winter gamefish competitions, this festival enjoys a lot of support – there were over 150 anglers fishing it in past years – and there are loads o prizes to be won. Traditionally, the heaviest fish in this comp was usually a yellowfin, hence the tuna focus. But it’s actually an alround game fish tournament, and we’re looking forward to seeing some amberjack or king mackerel (couta). What will it be at this year’s Shelly Beach Ski-Boat Festival? Discover it at Shelly Beach Ski-Boat Club.
