The Kiama Gamefishing Club was founded in 2001 following the vision of the inaugural President Mark Way. The idea came to fruition when it was noted that a significant number of the members of other regional gamefishing clubs resided in the Kiama local area. These fisherman came together and felt that it was an ideal opportunity to add to the Kiama region and form this Game Fishing Club.
The 2018 Kiama Leagues Club Blowhole Big Fish Classic is on again. On April 7th and 8th Kiama will host our annual Gamefishing Tournament which sees on average 30+ Boats and their crews fight it out over the weekend for the thrill of catching Big Game Fish.
Both Capture and Tag & Release categories will see stiff competition as boats battle it out to see who can claim the Champion Spots.
The Marlin are on the bite and nows the time to head out and have some fun!!
over the last few weekends up and down the coast Tournament results have been showing that the marlin are around and ready to play. A few Kiama Boats have been representing the club in these and have been seeing good results all round.
Please provide any photo’s Mark Way or my self (Matthew Cameron) asap for Bulletin, as well as, details on Tags/Captures and how you went overall. With Comps basically every weekend, it’s difficult to keep up without your assistance.
We have boats now gearing up for Port Stephens and the Shoot out, so I expect Point score will fluctuate in coming weeks. It's great to see so many Kiama Club Boats competing in Southern Zone Comps!
Time to get out and have a fish!
