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!
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 up to 50 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.
This year we saw Kiama field a team of 3 Great Boats and Crews for the NSWGFA Interclub at Port Stephens.
Awesome effort from Team Kiama made up of the Boats Absolute, ProFishEnt and X-Factor. These Boats and Crews managed to placed 3rd overall in Tag and Release from 130 Boats in this the most prestigious and heavily contested Tournament by the best Game Fishing boats!
ProFishEnt came 2nd overall from 130 boats in Tag and Release with 17 Marlin (Mostly Blacks and some Stripes plus 2 Whaler sharks all on 15kg).
Absolute is Champion Boat Tag & Release- 37kg with 13 Marlin (Mostly Blue Marlin).
X-Factor 3 Marlin Tag & Release (Black Marlin on 10 & 15 kg)
Total Marlin Tagged & Released by Team Kiama GFC was 33 “WOW”!
Absolute on Ladies Day-Champion Boat Capture & Champion Angler Capture Yasmin with 131.2kg Blue Marlin.
An extremely awesome effort by our boats.
“Congratulations to skippers and crews, played strong and done us and Kiama proud”
