2019 Peter Goadby Tournament Report

The Sydney Game Fishing Club, located in Sydney’s Watsons Bay, hosted the Peter Goadby Memorial Tournament over the weekend of 13th and 14th April 2019. The tournament is proudly presented by Little Audrey Charters, Australia’s premier luxury game fishing charter.

The tournament saw glamourous conditions and with the prize pool including $50,000 in cash, a total prize value of over $80,000 and a historical big fish. Over 50 boats took up the challenge and the fish arrived on cue and did not disappoint.

With reports of good numbers of marlin, tuna and sharks throughout the entire fishing zone, the fleet stretched out between chasing the Stripes on the inshore grounds, while the sharkers and those chasing the big Blues and yellowfin went wide.

Between the fleet, there was a total of 86 strikes and 67 hook ups.  25 marlin were captured or tagged, which comprised 21 Stripes, 1 Black and 3 Blue marlin. On the yellowfin tuna front, 9 were caught with many more big barrels earning their freedom while the sharkers got a mixed bag of tigers, makos, whalers and blue sharks.
