As Western Australia’s largest fishing club the MAAC has a very active angling division. The Angling & Sports Division “A & S” run monthly fishing competitions for small boats and larger boats offshore. Boats launch early Saturday morning and upon completion of the competition, competitors return to the club for the weigh-in in the Boatshed at 4pm. After the weigh-in a BBQ is usually held in the boatshed for participants, their families and club members to attend – all are welcome!
The “A & S” also compete in a number of interclub fishing competitions during the course of the year. Most of these competitions are in the Perth area but there are several regional competitions including Jurien Bay and the South West where the “fishos” can test their skills out of their home waters.
All members are welcome to join in – please contact the office on 08 9447 1733 or email@example.com
MAAC Monthly Fishing Competition
The monthly competitions are held on the Saturday before the second Sunday of each month. Should the Saturday be cancelled through inclement weather the competition is held the following day, with the Sunday being set as a reserve day. If the weather does not permit to fish on either day, then the competition is cancelled for the month.
Please refer to the calendar for the competition dates and reserve dates for 2020.
