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! This year marks the clubs 33rd Anniversary of this renowned family fishing event and we are striving to attract over 400 competitors.
Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we were unable to host the event in 2020. We are hoping that 2021 is going to be our biggest and best event yet!
In 2019, we had 343 entrants including 92 junior anglers with a total of 98 teams. The May Day weekend snapped up 136 barramundi which were released back into the mighty Victoria River. The biggest catch of the weekend was a whopping 100cm and was caught and released with the winner claiming the premier prize of $4,000.00 cash.
We rely on the support of the community and sponsorship from local business. We encourage our members to support the businesses that support us.
