Port Hedland Game Fishing Club

....a club for the Hedland fishing community.

Port Hedland Game Fishing Club - a club for the fishing community of Hedland. We welcome anglers of all abilities and ages.....and you don't need to own a boat to fish or to be a member. The majority of our competitions and tournaments allow for land based fishing so everybody can enjoy one of the most popular pastimes in town with like minded people!!

About UsAbout Us
Port Hedland Game Fishing Club has been in existence for over 30 years. We are an organisation run by volunteers for the fishing community of Port Hedland.

The club holds monthly members competitions after which there is always a sausage sizzle and presentation for the largest fish caught. Annual events include the Blue Water Classic Tournament which runs over 2 days and will celebrate it's 30th anniversary in 2022, and the 2 day PilBarra Tournament. 

All members are eligible to submit catches of target fish which are caught outside of the major and monthly competition in a quest to become Club Champion. More recently, we have introduced an annual members weekend away at Cape Keraudren to kick off the year which has proven to be very popular.

We encourage participation by people of all ages and we have members on the committee who have a wealth of knowledge to share about all things fishing. We welcome new members and look forward to catching up with you at the various events throughout the year.

30th Anniversary Blue Water Classic

The annual Blue Water Classic Tournament turns 30 years old this year. The proceedings will kick off on Friday 19 August 2022 with the registration and briefing evening. Due to this year being a significant one, all vessels participating in the Blue Water Division will be required to attend a mandatory sail past on the Saturday morning. The competition will run over Saturday and Sunday. Weigh in will take place on both days between 4pm & 7pm. A presentation evening will take place the following weekend to announce all the winners. Full details will be published as soon as they have been finalised.
