Gormans Removal Rescue
Welcome to the home of the Yeppoon Coast Guard Tight Lines Fishing Classic. The premier fishing and fund raising event held at Anderson Park Yeppoon (Ross Creek) in Central Queensland (Yeppoon) every year in August. Funds raised from the annual event are destined for the maintenance and purchase of new equipment and facilities for the local Coast Guard flotilla QF11. Your entry fee will be going towards a great cause and in fact may help to save someone's life through the selfless volunteer work of the Coast Guard. Your entry is needed!
It's important to know that there's no need to actually go fishing to be in the running for the fantastic random draw prizes.
Just buy yourself a ticket, be there when the draws are called, and you're in with a chance to win!
If you are considering berthing at Keppel Bay Marina for the event then you are in luck as there are extra berths available.
Please tell your friends about the event and spread the word far and wide. We want to make the Tight Lines Fishing Classic the premier event of its type on the August/September calendar!
