RBAFC runs events throughout the year.

Redland Bay Amateur Fishing Club

Since the early 1980s, the Redland Bay Amateur Fishing Club has catered for members of all ages with an interest in fishing.

The club has a full itinerary of scheduled events throughout the year, running three 4WD camping fishing trips during the year – two on North Stradbroke Island and one to K’gari.

We encourage a family spirit and an atmosphere of friendship and fun at all our outings.

In addition, RBAFC is pleased to announce that the RBAFC Sports Fishing Competition is continuing for 2024.

The rules have been tweaked a little to make this competition more widespread and available to be fished around Australia in the people’s choice category.

With this members’ competition, we will have four winners per month – two species, member’s choice senior and a member’s choice junior.

This can be accomplished by capturing an image of the particular species on any brag mat, including a designated codeword, and submitting it either by emailing to sportsfishing@rbafc.org or via the app upload feature.

Photos will be shared on the Redland Bay Amateur Fishing Club Facebook page.

As codes get released each month, they will be emailed to members, and available on the RBAFC website, Facebook page and via the app.

Prizes are awarded on the longest fish caught in each category.

This competition is for the angler who loves to catch the big ones but also gets gratification from seeing them swim away.

This is not to say that you can’t take home a feed, as there is nothing better than fresh fish, though you don’t have to kill some species, yet are able to still take home awesome prizes.

The member’s choice category will be for every other species other than the ‘species of the month’.

Again, this will be a photographed fish on a brag mat with the codeword of the month.

All the entries will be looked at and the best seven catches presented to the members at the general meeting, where the winner will be decided.

Please read the rules carefully and if you have any questions, email us at sportsfishing@rbafc.org or phone Matt on 0415 149 350.
