Our Club

The King Bay Game Fishing Club started it’s origins in the late 60’s in the Dampier Archipelago and has been going strong ever since.

The objectives of the club is to promote saltwater game fishing under the WAGFA, GFAA, IGFA rules and regulations, with a strong emphasis on tag and release.

We have a strong focus on our juniors within the club as they are the future of our club. We our proud to have many success’s with our juniors and small fry both now and in the past.

 

Our club promotes social interaction between members of the club and their guests with the option of taking advantage of the use of our club shack accommodation out in the Dampier Archipelago – available to all financial members and their guests through bookings.

 

As a club we run three major events through the year. The King Brey Open bottom fishing competition in April, is very popular with the wider community. We then have our Dampier Classic in August. This is our main tournament open to the public and members and is one of the premier WAGFA sanctioned tournaments in the north west. It is held in high regard among the Australian angling fraternity.

We also hold the popular Estuary Challenge barra competition in November. This is measure and release and is open to the public and is very popular with the barra fisherman in the community.

 

Our club promotes sharing fishing knowledge amongst members to help better improve everyone’s knowledge of fishing the Dampier Archipelago and the current and new technique’s involved in game fishing. Whether it is light tackle or heavy tackle fishing or catching Billfish in our waters, our members are willing to share their knowledge with new members.
