IT'S not too late to get your hooks into Australia's biggest family fishing event.

The Observer Boyne Tannum HookUp has extended its deadline to enter the May 3-5 event, due to a few late cancellations.

But numbers are still strictly capped at 3000 senior entrants, so aspiring anglers better get in quick.

And who would want to miss out, with so many huge prizes up for grabs. Top of the list is a CruiseCraft 575 Explorer worth more than $70,000.

HookUp spokesman Patrick Laws said organisers were keen to get more locals along to the Bray Park event.

"It looks like it's going to be a beautiful weekend," he said.

Previous competitors pay just $85 for the senior comp, and $40 for juniors. New entrants pay an extra $5 for a HookUp magnetic card. More information at boynetannumhookup.com.au
