A hearty welcome to the Tuross Head Fishing Club!


Home of the annual Tuross Head Flathead & Bream Tournament.

 

Tuross Head Fishing Club is a sub-club of the Tuross Head Country Club and is one of the biggest fishing clubs on the South Coast of
New South Wales. At Tuross,
the opportunity exists to fish estuaries, rock, beach, lake and offshore. We hope you enjoy casting your eye (pun intended) over our website... who knows, perhaps we’ll ‘catch’ you on the water ;)

2015-16 fishing stats

With the results for our 2015-2016 fishing season now all finalised, it is time to see how we went with the new system of measuring our fish rather than weighing them.

Contestants can now photograph their fish on our approved brag mat and submit the photo rather than bringing in a fish dead, gutted and gilled to weigh (last year fish could be photographed on a brag mat and the measurement converted to weight, this system had problems). Fish may then be kept or released depending on whether they want to eat them or release them. Members can still bring their fish to the BBQ to be measured if they so desire.
The idea was to bring the club into the 21st century and allow for sustainable fishing within our club.

69 members measured and entered fish this year, last year 55 members weighed in fish. This is an increase of members participating in the competition of 25% for the 2015-16 year.
763 fish were caught this year, compared to last years 652 fish an increase of 17.02% caught.
508 fish were kept, or 66.58% of all fish caught. Last year 570 fish were kept, or 87.42% of all fish caught.
255 fish were released equating to 33.42% of all fish caught, while last year 82 fish were released equating to 12.57%.
So although the number of fish caught was up by 17.02% the number of fish kept was down by 20.84% proving that the new system works and provides for a more sustainable competition within our club.
The majority of members feel that the new competition is a fairer method of competing, and the new system was adopted at the AGM as our new rules.
