The 2021 Kiama Blowhole Bigfish Classic was held over one day due to the Gale Warining forcast for the Sunday. We would like to thank our Sponsors, the teams and clubs that entered even with the average at best weather.
The Tournament saw JNR angler Coby Rogers on board Kiama Boat Nirvana capture a 45kg Yellow Fin Tuna on 37kg which took out Champion Junior, Heaviest Tuna and Champion Boat for the Capture Categories.
Kiama Boat Pro-Fish-Ent managed to Tag a Stripe Marlin late in the day to Raymond Chacti winning Highest Pointscoring SNR Male Angler, Most Marlin Boat and Champion Boat.
At the Combined Tournament Dinner and Presentation we saw Stuart Willick win the Lucky Angler Draw Shimano Stella 18,000 BHG, Mel Papadimas collecting the Lucky Skipper prize for Storm Boy and Anthony Mifsud with the Lucky Door Prize Shimano Baitrunner 8000D Reel.
Congratulations to Kiama Boats PRO-FISH-ENT and Chasn Tail who fished the Ulladulla GFC Jess Sams Comp. Both boats and crew managed to get onto the Marlin with PRO-FISH-ENT taking out the competition!
We need your support via a submission to retain the Boat Ramp at Kiama Harbour.
Simplification and explanation-Re-Draft Kiama Harbour Revitalisation proposal-Feb 2021
To try and simplify the situation/proposal, it’s impossible to re-locate the boat ramp (physically) to that proposed location and you don't need to be a civil engineer to see that. Re-location would also cause huge problems with parking, both trailer and rock pool vehicles etc. The current situation with the boat ramp location is fine and it does not require any change with all ancillary infrastructure there to support it and expenditure has already been committed. The proposed Break wall would block the main channel and is not required. I assume most who support the draft proposal don't have trailer boats and don't swim in the rock pool and possibly hardly visit the Harbour? The Surf Club Jet boat is located adjacent this ramp for easy and fast access. This is the only area for boats and maritime use must come as a first priority. There is a need to fix existing infrastructure and a few million would do that eg retaining wall/promenade damaged and requiring work etc. The 2014 Master Plan has fixed transport both pedestrian and vehicular traffic, with a busy small area, it's always going to be congested on weekends etc.
The draft proposal would cost over a hundred million with no funds allocated it. Just an insane proposal driven by a few that is unrealistic/commercialism orientated type people over basically the natural and historic beauty that is Kiama.
