“The Friendliest Club on the Coast”
Mooloolaba Game Fishing Club
Mooloolaba Game Fishing Club was founded on a love of fishing, friendship and frivolity.
Now, after 25 years, the club has established itself as the friendliest on the Coast offering an innovative set of fishing tournaments and fun social activities.
The Mooloolaba Game Fishing Club (MGFC) is based at the Mooloolaba Marina, on the doorstep of some of the best light tackle game fishing in Australia. Common species in our fishing grounds include juvenile Black Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna and a myriad of others. Out a little wider, you can encounter Blue, Striped and larger Black marlin on a regular basis using heavy tackle.
The club prides itself on promoting tag and release fishing. Our tagging program provides information to the NSW Fisheries Department to assist in their research of the species.
Our Next Tournament
Our next Sanctioned Tournament is the Billfish Babes which will be held on Feb 19-20
The Billfish Babes is a one day game fishing shootout for ladies only! This tournament includes one day of light tackle fishing making it the perfect day out for the occasional or beginner angler. The ladies will be reeling in Black Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Mackeral and Tuna, all of which count towards the overall score for the boat. To add to the fun, Billfish Babes also features a fancy dress boat parade and a presentation dinner to finish off the weekend. Download the brocure for more information!

Let's Have Some Fun!
At MGFC, we love our fishing because it's fun! Social days and events are part of what makes our club great.
We also host a number of fun social activities for our club members. Some involve fishing, some don’t, but they are all heaps of fun for the whole family!
At the end of each month, we hold a Rally Day, which encourages our members to get out and fish! An award is presented at the end of each year for the boat and angler with the most points scored during Rally Days.
When the Billfish aren’t biting, we like to keep the momentum going with an annual Reef Fishing Tournament. A prize is awarded for the biggest reef fish caught on the day. The off season is also the perfect time for us to go on our annual camping trip. This social event is a highlight of the clubs calander. We also hold a monthly General Meeting and a yearly Christmas Party for our members.
