Big Horse Creek Barra Classic

Competition Info

Every year the KGFC hosts competitions for anglers of all levels. No matter if you are a seasoned pro or have never even held a Rod & Reel before.

Every May Day long weekend, the Katherine Game Fishing Club hosts their premier event that attracts upwards of 300 anglers – The Big Horse Creek Barra Classic!

In 2023, we had 317 entrants including 91 junior anglers with a total of 91 teams. The May Day weekend snapped up 411 Barramundi which were released back into the mighty Victoria River.

Held annually on the grounds on the Katherine Country Club, the KGFC kids fishing fun day has a primary focus on providing a safe and exciting day to educate the next generation of junior anglers.

Through out the day the kids are taught about boat safety, catching and using bait, basic fishing knots, casting practice, fish care and conservation, and most of all how to have fun while out on the water.

In 2024 the Big Horse Barra Classic took a significant leap forward in tournament technology by shifting from a paper-based scoring system to a modern, App-based approach with Track My Fish.

With Track My Fish, every catch you log is accompanied by metadata including the date, time, and location of the catch. This new feature helps ensure fairness and transparency by reducing the potential for discrepancies and cheating.

Efficiency: Quickly submit your scores directly through the app and spend more time fishing.

Accuracy: Automated calculations reduce errors and provide up-to-the-minute leaderboard standings.

Sustainability: Join us in our commitment to reduce paper use and our environmental footprint.

We encourage all participants to download and familiarise themselves with Track My Fish prior to the event.
