Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show Huge Success

Big Crowds and Big Bargains for Brisbane Boaties
The crowds were out at the Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show and while this made parking a bit of an issue, it was clear that the 36,469 attendees were having a great time!

Marine Queensland’s events manager, Jason Plant, said the higher attendance figures reflected the interest and passion of Queenslanders in all things relating to the outdoors.“This year marked the Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show’s 10th anniversary and it was rewarding to mark the milestone with a successful show result,” Plant said.

It was fantastic to see even more exhibitors this year and some of the "boat show specials" were really impressive. The Fishing Expo Stage always had something going on of interest and the line for autographs from Paul Worsteling from TV's iFish showed that most of the crowd really loved their fishing!

The Yamaha Supertank with Brett "Thomo" Thompson gets the crowds whereever it appears and this year's Tinny and Tackle Show was no exception. His simple but useful tips on lure fishing coupled with his natural showmanship means that this is a crowd pleaser every time! I'm sure it also sold quite a few of his $20 lures!

Many of the mums and dads we spoke to particularly loved the 4BC Kids Marine Zone. Who doesn't love the idea of dropping off the kids for an hour or so for well supervised and interactive fishing based entertainment, giving mum and dad a chance to look around the show at leasure? A great idea and a compliment to both Marine Qld,  the organisers of the show and the operators of the Kids Marine Zone itself, 2 Bent Rods.

Dates for the 2013 Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show and National 4x4 and Outdoors Expo will be announced shortly.
