Fishing event hooks anglers from all across the globe
The GAMEX fishing tournament was another success story for Exmouth, with anglers coming from interstate, New Zealand, Japan, South Africa and, of course, WA.
There were 52 boats and 226 anglers that competed in the 25 main sections, and there were many other daily and hourly prizes.
There were raffles, auctions, children’s clinics, elegant luncheons, sponsor cruises, a whale shark media day, special guests, live music and some of the best camaraderie and energy you could imagine to experience.
The anglers were grateful to the sponsors, staff and volunteers that made the event possible.
Competitors rejoiced at the presentation evening with superb food, while the prizes were given to the winners.
There was calculated to be more than $120,000 in cash, prizes, and giveaways during the GAMEX event.
An economic impact survey is being conducted to measure the money that is spent in the region during the event.
All anglers are asked to complete the survey.
Everyone is asked to give feedback to the Exmouth Game Fish- ing Club president to shape the future of GAMEX via email@example.com.
GAMEX has the dates set for the next four years, so if keen anglers missed out this year, there is plenty of time to plan for another event.
