As Western Australia’s largest fishing club the MAAC has a very active angling division. The Angling & Sports Division run monthly fishing competitions. Boats launch Saturday morning with competitors returning to the club for the weigh-in at 4pm. After the weigh-in a BBQ is held in the boatshed for participants, their families and club members to attend – all are welcome!
We compete in a number of interclub fishing competitions during the year. Most are in the Perth with 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 9447 1733 or firstname.lastname@example.org
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. 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 2022.
The competition has a comprehensive set of rules and species guidelines to follow. We ask you to familiarise yourself with the rules and species guidelines to ensure our fishing competitions continue to be safe and sustainable.
