June 30 brings about a new fishing season for the world's second oldest game fishing Club.

For a Victorian based game fishing Club, has there ever been a better time to game fish in Victorian waters? Be it good luck, good management or an uplift in fishing new areas and using new techniques, the opportunities to catch record breaking gamefish in our southern state waters seems to be so tempting and richer these days. We're definitely experiencing what many may one day recount as a period of the 'good old days', right now.

It's periods like this that retaining, holding and utilising your STC Gamefishing Membership to fish waters in our Club's home state is a must. The chance to catch a record breaking fish or one that lands your name on one of prestigious trophies has never been more real.

In order to keep your membership active and your affliction to the GFAV & GFAA please use the link button below to access the Club's secure online payment portal, where your membership can be paid. The Club's annual membership renewal is due on or before June 30th 2023.

If by chance you have an issue with making payment via our secure online payment portal please email and a member of our committee will assist with processing your online payment for you or will provide bank details for you to make an EFT payment through your own banking institution.

Current Club Membership Update 2022-23

As we have it, our Club membership base remains constant, and across the 2022-23 season we had a few new members join our heralded ranks and a few deciding to not continue on. The committee welcomes these new members and we suitably hope to see that they utilise and reach out to our highly experienced and knowledgable group for help, support and inspiration when it comes to gamefishing (and for a good fishing story or three). For those members who have decided to move on we sincerely thank you for your support and wish you tight lines the next time you head out on the ocean or sea. Remember, you're always welcome back should that itch to fish get too much or you need the support of like minded friends!

For all current members, should you know of any suitable people for the club and wish to nominate them, please contact Club Secretary Andrew Pennisi on 0413 052 401 for an application form.

Notification of Captures

We wish to ensure that all fish captured or released are recorded and that our Club's outstanding trophies are worthily won. Could you please notify the Club of your captures and any Tag and Release details for the year ending 30th June 2023 so we can access and allocate trophy winners. Winners will be announced at the next Annual Dinner.
