Sorry if its not a correct result. Blinky.

7.5 fish avg. for a week as one of the better comps, sounds great...... not.
Bugger that for a joke.
Count me out fellas,
Wont be competing anytime soon,
I can think of a few much better spots and ways to spend a week out and grand or more on fuel, food and other comforts.


Mate you are that good, someone would sponsor your entry fee to go in their team.

Team entry this year was $5,310.00. Add your grog, campervan, any additional tackle, boat maintenance etc etc it ain't a cheap venture.......

I have fished 22 Classics, it is by far and away the highlight of the fishing year. Obviously catching fish is a huge part, it's not the bee all and end all, getting together with great mates, getting away from the lounge room, getting on the river for the week is also a big part of the enjoyment.

I for one wouldn't miss it for quids........

Fun times. :mrgreen:


Not quite right, from my memory, there may have only been 3 or 4 anglers without a point scoring fish, a few people and a few teams had doughnut days but people wised up and found the fish as required. lots of focus around Alligator Head and then moving up the river as the tide built.

22 clasics blinky ..... so you and your mates have wasted 110 plus grand just in entry fees without even considering the costs of lures, fuel, breakdowns, food, alcohol or maintainence .....
good work fellas !

If you want to go out for a week with your friends I'd go somewhere good with a few meterys on tap in the runoff or buildup .... just my 2c worth of opinion Just that I generally go fishing to catch fish. I can drink turkeys on my verandah at home....

Couple of questions :

So what do u get for your for $5130 ?
Do you get a powered site for 5 days and a few feeds of an evening ?
Or just a patch of dirt and you have to cook for yourself.?
What's the go to fuel up after each day ?
Do you still need to supply yr own beers puchased from the local pub ?
Who sorts out lunches and snacks?
Are they supplied in the entry fee?
How many fish did u get ?
What was yr biggest 1 ?
Can u bring p..s out from Darwin legally nowadays ?

I thought Daly was a restricted alcohol area I have had my car searched a few times by the local coppers over the years.

Flicken4em, the Classic is invitational mate so you probably won't have the option. :bonk: :fu:

Who actually gets an invite bazzabait I've seen a few interstate teams every year so do they have to "qualify" in a few comps or something mate ?

I couldn't be bothered competing even if I was sponsored for the entry fee or even the whole weeks efforts myself Seeing as Shane (the legend ) Compain only got 34 scoring fish (even 50cm rats count too) for a whole week on the Daly to win it . Bugger that for a joke boys, I'd get that in an hour or 2 with a couple of mates at my local spots and have 5 grand up my sleeve still.

But if you had fun getting blind and catching bugger all for the entire time thats the main thing hey ? ....

It’s funny how you never hear “Shane the ledend Compain” (as you say) talk about him self the way you do. If you think you could nail it so easy, enter and take home all the prizes. It would be a good investment. But this would mean you would be putting them on the line, and I somehow don’t think you would have them.
I also never heard cimpain give others poop, especially blokes he doesn’t even know (and also seems to be very well respected if the fishing community) saying rubbish like why are you still so sh|t after 22 years.
Then you have the audacity to winge that not enough people compliment you when you put a post up.

He caught some good times.

Very few people are worried about dollars-per-kilo.
