    northside deep sea fishing club(startup)

    i am serious about starting a northside deep sea fishing club.
    fishing will be deep sea at the start and may venture into other styles of fishing later.

    starting a club requires insurance thats for sure and around $1000 if you incorporate the club which would be necessary.

    i guess any success would require boats/ skippers to join the club

    so if you were thinking about fishing offshore and wish to do so in safety with numbers then send me a replypost and depending on the response i will get in contact
    i would be quite willing to put up the money to start and redeem at a later stage
    i have been fishing offshore for about 15 years and i am associcated with a deep sea club now and wish to start one on the northside.
    fishing offshore for SNAPPER leaving from scarborough ramp.

    G'Day Snappa,

    there would be alot of time, effort and money involved in starting up and then running a new club. Why not join an existing club?

    I believe the powerboat anglers club caters for anglers wanting to fish offshore for snapper from Brisbane's northside.

    However, what will you do when it is blowing or when you get sick of catching snapper? With dwindling fish stocks, I believe in conservation, making the most of every fish I catch, and variety, and that is why I am a member of the Brisbane ANSA Sportfishing Club.

    The Brisbane ANSA Sportfishing Club has led the way in sportfishing in Brisbane since the early 70s. We promote catch and release while still keeping enough for a feed, and by using relatively light line to target our fish, make the most of every fish we hook by helping to ensure there is a good fight. We fish inshore, offshore (reef and game), estuary and freshwater so we target heaps of different fish. There are regular competitions and also a system which recognises meritorious catches with personal achievement awards. You don't need a boat as there are skippers looking for crews, but it does help.

    Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month at the Brisbane 16 ft sailing club in Quay St Bulimba at 8 pm with members coming from as far as Strathpine and Cleveland. Cost is now $64 per year, unfortunately due in part to public liability insurance and state and national affiliation fees.

    Anyone wishing to know more may email me privately on or post here and I will reply when I can.

    "The underlying spirit of angling is that the skill of the angler is pitted against the instinct and strength of the fish and the latter is entitled to an even chance for it's life."
    (Quotation from the rules of the Tuna Club Avalon, Santa Catalina, U.S.A.)
