Welcome to the South Gippsland Game Fishing Club. We are a family orientated fishing club located in Leongatha Victoria and have a good mix of single and family members of all ages. The Club has a long history and played a big part in the formation of the Gamefishing Association of Victoria.

The Club is based in Leongatha and has members from many parts of Victoria. Our location is not far from some of the best fishing Victoria has to offer, such as Corner Inlet, Bass Strait, Port Albert, Shallow Inlet, Andersons Inlet, Waratah Bay and Westernport. The Club's fishing is not restricted to these areas with Club waters extending from south of the N.S.W northern border to the eastern W.A border

The Club is affiliated with the Game Fishing Association of Victoria (GFAV) and Game Fishing Association of Australia (GFAA) and fishes under the guidelines of these Associations.

We organise competitions throughout the year, with regular events during peak times. Our competitions take us to locations including Port Welshpool, Bass Strait, Westernport, Shallow Inlet, Port Albert and other interesting fishing locations. Our members also roam far and wide to locations such as Portland, Port Macdonnell and Bermagui in their quest for those elusive record catches.
