Changes to The Iron Jack Lizard Island Black Marlin Classic
Following the results of our survey of past participants, the Committee has agreed to a number of changes to the Iron Jack Lizard Island Black Marlin Classic.
We have decided to reduce the number of fishing days from 7 to 5, effective from the 33rd Iron Jack Lizard Island Black Marlin Classic.
The revised programme for the 33rd Classic is:
- Sunday 6th October Briefing Dinner 1900 for 2000 hrs in Marlin Centre.
- Monday 7th Sailpast of Tournament vessels will commence at 0915 hrs followed by start fishing at 1100 hrs.
- Monday 7th to Friday 11th October 5 days fishing from 1100 to 1730 hrs each day.
- Presentation Dinner Saturday 12th October 1900 for 2000 hrs.
Instead of holding a Calcutta Auction, each boat may opt in at the Briefing Dinner to participate in a pool with an entry fee of $1000.00 with the winner take all at the end of the event.
CASH PRIZES will be given for Champion and Runner-up Angler, Champion Boat/Team and most fish tagged each day.
