Copmanhurst Bass Classic


The Hayden Grebert Memorial Bass Classic 2017 will be open for public registrations on the 10th July. Last years competitors will have from the 4th July to register.

Previously known as 'The Copmanhurst Bass Invitational', is hosted on the Mighty Clarence River and is the No.1 Bass catch & release event in the Northern Rivers. Limited positions available!

The Bass Classic is a weekend everyone can catch up each year and share the love of bass fishing, and have a laugh. Only the first 50 paid teams will be able to attend the event. 2 Anglers per boat. It is not live weigh in, it will be your 5 overall biggest bass per team for the weekend and you will be given catch cards and a brag mat as well as key tags to have in the photo with the eligible bass. Camping is at the Copmanhurst Showgrounds (hot showers).

Everyone must attend the briefing on Friday 15th September at 6:30pm at the Copmanhurst Showgrounds. Refer to rules and regulations page (Click the link below) for full details on the Bass Classic.

We have taken out the prize money this year and will have trophies with prizes and a plaque for the annual winners, all money will be put back into the event through Catering, Official Bass Classic fishing shirts, stubbie coolers and a Major Prize raffle which everyone will get given 1 ticket each when entering. We aim on making this more of a fun event, eliminating all the tension which major prize money brings to events, so come and enjoy a top weekend fishing with mates, have a few cold beverages and claim the bragging rights to the 2017 Hayden Grebert Memorial Bass Classic!
