Main menu:

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.

Cancelled - 2020 5th Annual Port Welshpool Snapper & Gummy Challenge
All, it is with much regret that the SGGFC Tournament Committee wish to  inform all anglers of the cancelation of this years event. We have held  out as long as we could but the time has come to make a decision that is  ethical for sponsors, anglers and the community of Port Welshpool.

We as an organisation can not in good conscience ask our amazing  sponsors to support the event this year with all that has happened and  the hardship that all Victorian business has felt.
We also feel that those who have supported the event from metro  Melbourne over the past years would be disadvantaged due to current  restrictions. But most of all in the interests of public safety and the continued  success of the event we feel that looking forward to the 2021 5th Annual  Port Welshpool Snapper & Gummy Challenge is in the best interests  of all involved.

Apologies for any inconvenience and I look forward to seeing you all at next years event. Regards Joel Bacon SGGFC Committee
