Membership Information

Welcome future members…


Thank you for your interest in joining the Sunshine Coast Game Fishing Club.

The Sunshine Coast Game Fishing Club is lucky enough to boast one of Australia’s premier sports fishing grounds right on our doorstep. The Club has won the John O’Brien trophy awarded by the GFAA for the most fish tagged and released by any game fishing club in Australia an impressive nine times since 1997, making us the most successful tag and release club in recent history Australia wide. We also boast an impressive history as Queensland’s Champion Game Fishing Club thirteen times since the beginning of the QGFA Championship records.

Our monthly meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at the Kawana Waters Hotel, Nicklin Way, Kawana. Meetings commence at 7.30pm. Members are usually in attendance from 6.30pm, and you are most welcome to join us for a social chat or a bite to eat in the hotel bistro before the meeting commences. We present a different feature at each meeting – eg tackle and gear maintenance, fishing techniques, marine electronics, boat maintenance etc – and are only too happy to put something together if there is a particular fishing / marine feature you are interested in. Prizes are awarded each meeting to the highest point scoring angler, under and over 7metre boat captain and junior for the previous month.

Our club magazine Reel Talk is produced on a quarterly basis. This publication is designed to keep our members informed of the clubs activities and report on fishing for the month. The success of Reel Talk is widely based upon our member’s input, and you are most welcome to submit a story or anecdote to the editor for inclusion in the magazine.

Our club forum holds a wealth of information and is a members only area of our website. Feel free to post whatever you like in this area!

One of the greatest strengths of our club is the camaraderie that is evident amongst our members, and the willingness of our members to share fishing tips, tricks, and information. If you are new to fishing, looking for advice, or looking for someone to either come out fishing with you or take you fishing with them, don’t hesitate to mention your requirements at the club meetings, in the club website forum, or get the editor to put a line in the club magazine. We are justifiably proud of our club. One of the ways you can show you are a part of the SCGFC is to purchase a club shirt. A variety of club merchandise can be purchased at our monthly club meetings, and being distinctive in their style are great to wear to inter-club events.

We look forward to seeing you at the monthly club meetings, and out on the water.
