The St George MBC Fishing Club is a family orientated Club and welcomes anyone who likes to fish. The emphasis is on having fun, appreciating our waterways, enjoying good company and most of all fishing.
We fish Botany Bay, ‘Outside’ or from the land. Competition days are every second Sunday for approx. nine months of the year commencing in August, concluding in May. The current calendar is listed below.
Fishing can start from 1800 hours on the Saturday evening up to ‘weigh-in’ time of 1300 hours on Sunday.
After a hard days fishing we enjoy a social get-together where you can tell ‘tall’ fishing tales and enjoy a casual BBQ lunch.
THE COMPETITION AND EVENTS
The competition covers a wide range of categories allowing everyone from kids to grandparents to compete. Points are awarded to each fisho on the day based on the largest fish, number of species and total weight. Protecting our environment is paramount, consequently we encourage all members to “Catch, Photo & Release. An additional point is awarded for each species released under this scheme.
Other events in our Club Calendar include: Xmas Lunch with great food and tall tales. Ladies Day – the one day when anything goes for our lady anglers. Tournament Day – with cash prizes and Trophy’s for various species. Presentation Day – announcing the season’s winners, presenting the Trophy’s and culminating with a fabulous buffet lunch.
The joining fee is $30 for the first year for the whole family and $20 thereafter per year. Membership to the Mother Club, St George Motor Boat Club, is essential;
