NSWGFA Interclub tournament wrap


ALL in all the fishing went well in this year’s NSW Game Fishing Association (NSWGFA) Interclub tournament, even if the overall numbers were less than in most other years.

Held in Port Stephens over the last weekend of February the tournament was well received by all 130 boats despite the challenges afforded by the weather.

In total, 54 Marlin (all species) were tagged and released, and just four brought ashore for scientific samples and eating, the largest of which was a 151.9kg blue marlin.

22 mahi mahi were tagged and released, with four of those coming ashore including a massive 26.1kg bull (pictured above).

There were 10 shortbill spearfish tagged and released with no captures, 11 striped tuna were tagged and two of the ultra-quick wahoo were tagged and released, again with none captured.

The largest fish weighed for the tournament was the 256.1kg tiger shark. In all, five sharks of various species were tagged and released, with three coming ashore.

Information about the 2018 tournament can be found on the NSWGFA website.
