For anglers who enjoy either the open waters off the coast or prefer our inland waterways, the Brisbane Boat Show promises new vessels, the latest rods, tackle, accessories and loads of technology designed to make your day on the water even more enjoyable.

Being Queensland's most extensive boat show, open from the 24th to the 26th of August at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre South Bank, the Brisbane Boat Show is the place to choose and buy your rod and reel combo, as well as fish finders, hard and soft lures, bait buckets, landing nets or even your next boat to go with all your new gear.

Learn how to fish like never before at the show's fishing masterclasses, included with the cost of entry. A massive 83% of people visiting the show express an interest in fishing. The fishing clinics reflect that interest, with presentations ranging from inland waterway fishing to the more adventurous offshore competitions, presenting videos, photos and stories to match.

You don't need to travel too far to land the big ones, as game fishing multi-world-record holder Tim Simpson leads this year's fishing master classes, giving tremendous tips on how to catch marlin locally with your trailerboat.

Steve 'Starlo' Starling returns to talk about setting-up your boat perfectly for your style of fishing. What makes the ideal boating rig for your preferred style of fishing? Choosing the optimum layout, configuration and accessories will not only enhance your success, but also maximise your enjoyment of the sport. Turn those sorry sagas of "the one that got away" into tales of victory with Steve's invaluable advice.

Also on stage, Doug Burt presents the best way to land big flathead with lures, and sure-fire ways to clean-up and prepare your pots for catching sand and mud crabs.

'Doc Lures' Greg Vinall himself shares his knowledge gained over a lifetime of handcrafting lures. Greg is an aquatic scientist, self-confessed lure fishing nut, "fishingpreneur" and educator. His stories and advice are sure to thrill.

Local legend Paul Burt tells on stage of his sneaky techniques for landing reef fish, and shares his famous recipe for preparing tuna 'poke', a real taste sensation.

Jo Starling gives her insights on introducing kids to fishing the proper way, as getting the kids to pick up a rod instead of a smartphone can be a challenge, but the rewards are worth fighting for. Fishing can develop into a life-long love, and one of the greatest gifts you can share. Come and discuss tactics for success with Jo, and let the kids join in on some fun fishing games and quizzes.

The Supertank also returns where Cookie and Brett present live fish chasing a variety of lures right in front of your eyes. Learn about the best gear and techniques, while witnessing how well they work.

Alan Blake, President of the Boating Industry Association Ltd staging the event, said fishing represents the great Australian pastime of enjoying the outdoors with friends and family. "The Brisbane Boat Show brings together the leading dealers and manufacturers from across Australia and beyond, ready to showcase the latest in fishing, boating and marine technology," he said. "This is the show where all your questions about spending more time on the water and catching bigger and better fish can be answered."

The show is open each day from 10AM. Adult tickets are $15. Concessions are available for families, kids and seniors, with individual entry just $5 after 5PM (after 5PM tickets can be purchased onsite at the show only, excludes family tickets).
