While over 50 game fishing boats and 100 competitors will converge on Kiama for the annual Kiama Leagues Club Blowhole Bigfish Classic, it’s not much of a spectator sport as the action happens well offshore.
Even the weigh-in is reserved for the heaviest.
“Whilst the fish and sharks are large and quite spectacular, these days only a few are weighed in with emphasis on Tag and Release,” said Tournament Director Mark Way.
“Still, the few big fish and sharks weighed are impressive and well worth coming down to see.
“Plenty of Blue Marlin over 150kg are around at the moment and Blues over 300kg have been hooked in past Blowhole Tournaments.”
Details: The Classic is on 1-2 April. Weigh-in at Kiama Harbour from 5pm Saturday and 2pm Sunday.
