TALL tales will be par for the course when hundreds of anglers go head-to-head in the Queensland Yellowbelly Championship on the Australia Day long weekend.
The Garden Hole at St George is set to come alive with budding anglers of all ages as they vie to claim ultimate bragging rights in the competition.
Event organiser Paul Tyson said the weekend would have something for everybody.
"It's going to be a seriously fun weekend," he said excitedly.
AFL legend "Spida" Everitt will be in St George for the competition and Mr Tyson said he believed the former St Kilda, Hawthorn and Sydney star would make the most of his visit.
"He's not there to out-fish anyone," Mr Tyson laughed.
"He's a bit of a drawcard."
With more than 300 anglers expected to take part, the atmosphere at the Garden Hole will be electric once the fishing is finished and the sun goes down, with food, a bar and live entertainment on offer.
The Queensland Yellowbelly Championship is a catch and release competition, meaning anglers will need to use a smartphone or a digital camera to snap their catch on a brag mat.
Mr Tyson said the event was family-friendly and urged people who were yet to make their minds up to "come and have a crack at fishing".
"It's a good, healthy lifestyle and a great way to spend time with the kids," he said.
"Where else can you give your kids $30 and know they'll have a full weekend of fun with it?"
