What is a Rally or a Contest
RALLIES are FREE to enter for all of our Members where you can fish for what ever gamefish you wish, Mako, Bluefin, Yellowfin, Albacore or even a Marlin. The Club encourages you to Tag & Release Game fish that you do not wish to eat. Fish that you wish to be weighed in must be equal or greater weight than the line class. Example if you are fishing with 15kg line, a Bluefin captured that you consider weighs around 20kg can be weighed in, If the fish is under 15kg it is not eligible for a Prize or Perpetual Trophy.
