THE threat of thunderstorms and rain this weekend will not deter hundreds of anglers from hitting the region's estuaries for the annual Across the Waves Fishing Classic.

The Waves Fishing Club's Warren Hitzke said more than 200 adults had registered for the two-day event, which starts tomorrow morning.

"We are expecting 400 seniors and 200 juniors," he said.

Mr Hitzke said there would be three weigh-in locations during the competition - Burnett Heads boat ramp, Lions Park and at the Across the Waves Sports Club.

"All the major raffles and trophies will be held on Sunday at 1pm," he said.

"The prizes are huge - boats, holidays and camping gear."

The categories include live and dead catch of bream, whiting, flathead and mangrove jack.

Registrations will be taken right up until 12pm Sunday.

For more information, phone 4153 5943.
