The MBGFC is affiliated with the Queensland Game Fishing Association (QGFA) and Game Fishing Association of Australia (GFAA) which celebrated its 75th year in 2012. MBGFC follows the QGFA rules and members are eligible to claim State and Australian records, both salt and freshwater species.

The club actively promotes members to go fishing and organises club rally days or fun fish weekends and also tournaments.   Members can fish throughout the year and accumulate “club points”, which can win a number of perpetual trophies across a number of categories for senior male, senior female and junior anglers.

MBGFC hosts its annual QGFA sanctioned “Back to Tanga” tournament each March. This tournament is based out of our facilities at Moreton Island and last year attracted over 100 particpants from across clubs in Southern Queensland and also from overseas.

MBGFC fully supports “tag and release” of fish species especially for marlin and sailfish and sharks. Club members can access tags as part of the world renowned NSW Fisheries Tagging Program for use and for each fish tagged accumulates club points.

The Club Fishing Rules and also the Point Scoring Formulae for weighed and tagged fish can be downloaded via the link on the left. Fish captures must be filled out on the Capture Sheet and posted back to the secretary within 30 days.

Members who fish outside our zone at other Club tournaments are requested to fill in Activity Forms and also to make sure they get their Tag Cards (or copies) back from the Club after the tournament so that they can be handed into the secretary to be eligible for QGFA annual trophies.
