Torquay Angling Club News


Club Update
It has come to the our attention that a number of members have been unable to obtain their
stickers and membership cards for the 2021/2022 year
If you have paid and would like to receive these in the mail please email [email protected] and

confirm your postal address and we will arrange to do this as soon as possible.

Membership is due for those who have not paid yet
BSB 083 929 Account 91 060 2692

With the holiday season almost upon us there will be more of us boating over the next weeks.
Please ensure your safety equipment is up to date and be safe on the water. Fisheries have
already started patrolling and one of our members was fortunate to only receive a warning for
flares being a month out of date.

Remember the Comps over the holidays and get involved, especially the kids, check your
emails over the last few weeks for Comp details

Snapper and gummies have been caught in reasonable numbers by those who put the time in.
Tuna are showing up and should increase over the holidays and hopefully kingies as well
The FADs were reinstated early this month so check them out for fish activity

Stay Safe

TAC Committee



Jan handed in her resignation as Treasurer at last week’s Committee Meeting, we have reluctantly accepted her resignation, but she will stay on the Committee

She is a Life Member and was our Treasurer for 23 years, an amazing feat

We extend a huge vote of thanks to Jan and presented her with a 65 inch Sony TV from the Club for her hard work and total dedication.

She was overcome at the time as you can see from the photos

We all love you Jan

Fishing Report

The weather and fishing have been average of late but hopefully the swell will settle again soon and we can get back out on the whiting, flatties and snapper. Gummys should show in good numbers soon. We have a few bags of pippies if you need them but $13 per bag as they are hard to get

Let us know of your catches, even without GPS marks, but with photos, so we can share with our other club members

Paella and live music for 90 members and families last Friday

Thanks to Adrian and his daughter who provided great tasting seafood and also chicken & chorizo paella

Thanks to Colin and Gerry and their crew for some awesome 70’s music and dancing

Adrian, Colin and Gerry are all members and happy to help the club, anyone else with special skills please let us know

We held a meat raffle on the night, 3 lovely meat trays, proceeds to the Give Where You Live Charity
