Where fish are to be weighed, if they are gutted a 10% weight allowance will be added.  For weighed fish to be eligible for State or National GFAA records or to score club points they must exceed the weight of the line class being claimed.  For sharks and rays this minimum weight is double the line class claimed (This is not the case for World Records).Where fish are to be weighed, if they are gutted a 10% weight allowance will be added.  For weighed fish to be eligible for State or National GFAA records or to score club points they must exceed the weight of the line class being claimed.  For sharks and rays this minimum weight is double the line class claimed (This is not the case for World Records).

Teams are to provide equal opportunity and rod time to all anglers on board competing in the annual club competition for club points.  The Committee reserves the right to use their discretion in enforcing this rule if necessary.

  1. Fishing Boundaries:  our boundaries are divided into two distinct areas.  They are Local waters and Coastal Waters.  For Local waters the northern boundary is 5 NM to the north of Point Lookout (27º20S) and the southern boundary is Hastings Point (28º22S).  All waters in between are Local Waters.  Hook-up must occur within the boundaries.  Coastal waters encompass any other Australian coastal water.
  2. Charter Boats:  Club charter boats may compete in the general point score only whilst not chartered.
  3. Final Decision:  The GCGFC Inc. Committee reserves the right to amend these rules from time to time if necessary and its decisions are final.
