The St George MBC Fishing Club

For the Love of Fishing.

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”

On 20th November 1964, a group of locals got together to form the St George Motor Boat Club Fishing Club and it continues to this day.

Why join a fishing club? A significant number of Australians participate in recreational fishing each year and belonging to a club ensures you meet likeminded people, perhaps even learning new tips and techniques.

This Sub-Club

The St George Motor Boat Fishing Club caters for a diverse group of anglers including males, females and juniors in a fun, friendly and family oriented atmosphere welcoming all who like to fish. The emphasis is on having fun, enjoying our waterways, enjoying good company and most of all fishing. We fish Botany Bay, ‘Outside’ or from the land.

Competition days are twice a month (Saturday & Sunday). See calendar below.

After a hard days fishing enjoy the social get-together where you can tell ‘tall’ fishing tales and enjoy a casual 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 fish’o on the day based, largest fish, number species and total length. See rules for full details.

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.
