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
A Shimano Tiagra 16 will be the raffle prise for members who sign up by 1st December at Clubs Christmas General meeting on that date.
Membership renewals are due by the 1st September and can be paid via Electronic transfer to Clubs Bank account. E-mail entry forms to Secretary Matt email@example.com
Kiama GFC Bank details are shown on the bottom of Membership forms on Clubs Website: www.kiamagfc.com.au
You can of course post to PO Box 447, Kiama 2533 or drop into my house if you wish to pay by cash, but ring first.
Membership cards will be posted to you when you re-join/new members and need to be available when you enter Tournaments (put in your wallet).
Note: At recent NSWGFA AGM a motion was moved for establishment of a data base to check entrants in Tournaments are members of an affiliated Club. Apparently, southern clubs were getting a lot of Victorian anglers entering their Comps on “ bogus” memberships
I would expect you will be asked to produce proof of membership (membership cards) at Tournaments in the future.
Also at the AGM, the rules regarding use of Multifilament lines, commonly referred to as “Braid” have not changed and at the Kiama Blowhole Big Fish Classic the use of multifilament line is prohibited, as is the case with most other Tournaments.
Some of our Neighbours in Wollongong GFC managed to find some Fin out wide on Sunday for a trolling seshion of Kiama between 500 - 900 fathoms and came up trumps when Mitchell Kambouris caught a nice yellowfin of 29.2 kg on 50lb spin gear ,and then later in the day Leighal Dellis captured his first yellowfin of 30.1kg on 15kg line , well done and congrats boys some solid fish there .
Reports of Fin, Albacore and the odd marlin showing up means now is the time to get out there and get amongst the tuna action as lots of tuna reported right up and down the coast atm.
Just a reminder that Kiama GFC has a Tiagra 16 to give away to a lucky member in our Decemeber meeting. To enter you just have to be a financial memember before 1st of December.
