About Woodgate Beach Hotel Fishing Classic

What started out as a few family and friends sitting around throwing ideas around about things to do and events that would make this already great place thrive, It was suggested that we host a fishing competition as a way to attract new people to our small seaside town and help promote and boost the other local business’s also.

With that being said, In 2015 our first un-official committee was formed (Namely Family) and we set the wheels into motion for the first inaugural Woodgate Beach Hotel Fishing Classic to be held in September 2016. Our first year was a hit with only having a total prize pool of around $4500 total and 60 entrants (Mostly family and friends) to kick things off, we knew that we had discovered something great not only for the local businesses within the township of Woodgate, But also for the greater community & region. After the success of our first year we decided to go bigger and better each year and continuing to grow our comp in large numbers which saw us achieve over 500 entrants for our 5th year and a total prize pool of over $68, 000 given away over the weekend.

Our comp is run by the Carter family (Owner/Operators of the Hotel) who are very passionate about not only providing a good time for all to enjoy, But also about promoting what our great venue and region has on offer. This event also would not be possible without the support of our amazing sponsors (Past & Present) that have played a vital role in making this event and weekend the success heading into 2022. We must also thank our amazing family, Friends, and community clubs that have been involved each in every year to ensure we can put on a weekend to remember!!!
