Currumbin RSL Fishing Club was formed around 1980 when a group of local fisherman decided to hold a competition in Currumbin Creek, where they set species and bag limits. They enjoyed this so much that after consultation with the RSL, they decided to form the Fishing Club.
The weigh-ins were held on the banks of the creek in front of the Club using a scale hanging of a tree. Membership grew and the club members erected the shed which still stands on the creek bank.
Currumbin RSL gave permission for the Fishing Club to move across the road and again with true Club spirit, members built the Clubhouse behind the Caretakers Shed.
In 2011 the Fishing Club held the QAFCA State Titles for Beach and Rock Fishing with a successful turn up that made the QAFCA very happy.
The Club’s Estuary Competition consists of Mens A. Mens B, Ladies, Veterans and Junior Divisions and we also have a Blue Water Competition for our boaties. The competitions are held approximately every two weeks and include two competitions against Seagulls Fishing Club and a trip to Woody Head each year.
The Fishing Club is a social club, so if you love your fishing and like to have a chat with fellow fishermen/women contact either Neil Graham or Leanne Gordon for more information.
