It has been miserable out on the water for the winter but warming up now and some good fish caught of late, check out the Fishing Report. Bring on Summer !!

The clubrooms have been warming up all winter with many Members nights which included Pizza, Spit Roast, BBQ and Burgers and Chips. We have been having meat raffles, a trivia night and live music which have made these nights most enjoyable for all with great numbers attending and numbers growing. We plan to have a meal night every second Friday night over summer so please come along.

A music trivia night and a presentation from a special guest celebrity fisherman are also coming soon. Keep an eye out on your emails our Facebook page and website for upcoming events.

We encourage all members to keep their email addresses up to date so you can hear about upcoming events, if you have changed please l us know at fishing@torquayfish.com.au and join us on Facebook where you can also see whats happening.

We held a successful kids fishing day with about 15 kids and their parents and a great Halloween function with over 50 people at the club

You will notice a new sign on the club, looks great and we are also designing a TAC windsock to go on the top of the flag pole

We are about to purchase a new telescope for the club, just finalising our research.

We have attracted a lot of new members, its especially encouraging to see young families with small kids joining, we need new blood coming up through our ranks

With your membership renewal you would have received a feedback form, we encourage you to fill this out and get back to us so we can continue to improve our facilities for your enjoyment, either via email or in the feedback box in the club

As you may be aware the Jan Juc Surf Club was demolished in order to build a brand new facility. In the meantime, we have offered their members our club facilities on a Sunday afternoon and occasional Friday night when we dont have our own functions, please make them feel welcome

With summer coming and more of you getting out in your boats, please check your lifejackets and all safety gear. Make sure your air cannisters on your jackets are tight as they can come loose with movement. Fisheries have the added job these days of carrying out Water Police duties so will not only check your fish and license but also safety gear and they are very active in our part of the world.

Most Important thing is to stay safe on our water!

The FADs are due to be put back out this month, can you please do us a favour and take photos of catches, other groups of boats, etc so we can feedback to Fisheries so they are encouraged to continue with this project. Hopefully they will attract kingies to the area as planned.

Looking forward to catching up with you all over summer, the bar is open daily from 4pm till 6pm as a minimum, depending on numbers

Have a great summer and catch fish
