Changes due to Corona Virus

I’m sure most of you are aware the prime minister outlined some further restrictions on the Australian people in the battle against the Covid 19 virus at this time. These new restrictions are aimed at eliminating any unnecessary group gatherings, and unfortunately this includes future club meetings and dive events. This will be in place until health warnings and recommendations change allowing the return to business as usual, and hopefully soon. The South Sydney Amateur Fishing Club will also be closing it’s doors until the threat subsides.
 
There will be no club meetings, and no club dives until the situation changes.
 
These are uneasy times and i hope your all staying safe and abiding by health recommendations until the threat is under control and recommendations change.
 
This has not been easy for me to put in place and have been putting it off till the very last minute, but absolutely necessary and unavoidable. I implore everyone to maintain a share of information and any queries you may have, especially the newer members, on our facebook page.
 
I am hoping to put out some content each month such as recorded presentations on various spearfishing topics as well.
 
Stay safe everyone.

Dolphins Sports Report – June 2019

Hi Dolphins, a wee sports report for the past couple of months.  Relating some Competition and Social events and Club Championship results to date.

 

The National Spearfishing Championships were held around the Port Fairy area of Victoria, we had the one Dolphin participate in the Nationals and that was Evan Leeson.

Evan had done some serious training for the event, in particular diving around Tasmania, I heard looking for Crayfish and other succulent seafood that the cold waters of the Tasman are renowned for – he struck out on almost all accounts despite becoming intimate with the complete map of Tasmania, yet when he arrived to scout the area for the Nationals he found the Southern Rock lobster to be in abundance, and the odd 22kg Southern Bluefin Tuna.  Evan fared ok in the event finishing outside the Top Ten and he is keen to return to another Nationals in the near future.

Paul Marsh features in the NSW Anglers Research Program

Paul Marsh graciously donated a 20 kg Mulloway to the NSW Research Angler Program . The fish was estimated to be 10 years old and was caught around the Central Coast at spot X in the middle of Winter. Well done Mudcrab!

The Dolphin’s Challenge

The Dolphin’s Challenge, newly introduced, is a great concept as it will allow all Dolphin’s to enter a fish they have speared whilst engaging in either a social environment or other organized spearfishing event, basically it is available to enter every day of the year.

The inaugural event will run from 17th November 2017 until 30th June 2018 with the presentation of awards and prizes handed out at our now legendary Christmas in July bash. 

How it works: In a nutshell you enter a fish you feel appropriate for that specie and if it is still in the top ten of its category at the end of the event you will receive points for that fish (10pts for heaviest, 9pts for 2nd heaviest, etc. – see rules for more detail). The twenty categories targeted can be readily speared in NSW waters, such as Bonito, Bream, Goatfish, Morwong (any), Kingfish (any), Snapper; also included Squid (not Cuttlefish) and Crayfish.

There is also a category for Open Largest Fish Pelagic, and, Open Largest Fish Reef. (Only one entry into any eligible category per fish.)

Each competitor can only present two entries per category over the eight-month period, strategy is wise.

Prizes

This year’s prizes and trophies will equal approx $2,000!

A Perpetual Dolphins Challenge Trophy

1st Place – $200 + Trophy

2nd Place – $100 + Trophy

3rd Place – $50 + Trophy

$50 will also be awarded for the heaviest fish in each category. Continue reading The Dolphin’s Challenge

Species Series Presentation: Part 2 – Kingfish

Just a reminder about our club meeting next week on Tuesday the 17th. Should kick off from around 7:30 with a BBQ feast served by BBQ king Alex joined by our very own Smokey BBQ LEGEND Ali making a return star appearance serving up a game meat feast. The boys are donating plenty of meat for the night but if anyone has something they can donate please contact Alex to arrange it. Would be much appreciated!! And get your taste buds ready.

Once everyone has had their fill we’ve got another installment of a species specific presentation. This time were looking at the all popular king fish, and just in time. If your after a big kingi the next few months is the time to do it!

Evan will be discussing hunting kingfish locally and abroad, enzymes that affect the flesh (the mushy factor), shot placement, equipment, hunting techniques, safety, current records, regulations, recipes, when and where to find these fish. Feel free to bring in your gear to get checked and critiqued.

Don’t miss it!!!!!!!!!
