NEW Changes to SHARK T&R Points

At the NSWGFA AGM held over the weekend (16-17 July) Changes to Shark T&R were voted in and are effective as of the 18th July.

 

The rationale for the proposal was to encourage fishers to tag sharks that are borderline making minimum weight, as opposed to bringing tem in just in case it weighs.

                          6-10kg          15kg           24kg            37kg          60kg        

 

Sharks             3750pts      3450pts      3000pts      2550pts      2250pts  

 

Blue Sharks    3125pts       2875pts      2500pts      2125pts     1875pts

Kiama Blowhole Big Fish Classic- 7th & 8th April 2018

2017 Kiama Leagues Club Blowhole

Big Fish Classic

A bad weather forecast affected entries in the Tournament with 15 boats entering the competition. The Saturday however, turned in excellent weather conditions for those anglers competing in the Tournament with early action on Mahi Mahi and a Blue Marlin of 100kg’s Tagged and Released to “Frantic” skippered by Steve Banks. Shortly after tagging that Marlin, Frantic were in action again on a large Yellowfin tuna estimated at 70kg’s plus only to lose it at the Boat.

 

The emphasis on Tag & Release was evident throughout the day with “Snoop n Round” skippered by Ian Kilmore tagging another Blue Marlin of 90 kg’s tagged and released. Plenty of Striped tuna were reported, as well as, bait schools of Sauries and Flying fish plus Mahi Mahi were also in strong numbers closer in for “Storm Bay 2” and “Nauti Escape” to continue a run of Tag & Releases for Junior and Lady Anglers.

 

Down the “Banks” the action centred on Whaler sharks with “Stainless Stil” getting amongst the action Tagging and Releasing 6 whilst in the midst of all these sharks, junior angler Jackson Smith tangles with a solid Black Marlin for 3 hours only to lose it near the boat when the snap swivel broke!

 

The only capture for the Tournament went to Vaughan Little on “Outcast” skippered by Mitch Ryan with a 76.5kg Striped marlin on 10kg that scored 13,460 points. Mitch reported plenty of Marlin sightings off the “Drum Canyons” but no sharks so they switched to Marlin fishing and came up with a good capture following Outcast’s success the week before in the Shoalhaven Comp.

 

The JB Lures “Lucky Lure sked” draw on Saturday went to: Frantic; Outcast; Hall in; Storm Bay 2 and Just Hooked.

 

Saturday night Tournament dinner at Kiama Leagues Club saw the “Lucky Angler draw” a Shimano Stella 30,000 value at $1,400, courtesy of Pro-Fish-Ent Trading was won by Kim Griffin from “Just Hooked”. Lucky Skipper went Steve Banks and Lucky Door Prise to Phil Clinton. The “Mega raffle” was well patronised with first draw going to Sondal Bensan who naturally picked the Shimano 50W Tiagra.

 

The Sunday saw the return of bad weather and big seas and despite starting the Competition, when wind speeds exceeded 34 knots, gusting up to 40 knots at 11am, the Tournament Director cancelled fishing at that time for the day, obviously for safety reasons. The JB Lures Lucky Boat sked draws went to “Pro-Fish-Ent” and “Stainless Stil”.
