Fish­ing event hooks an­glers from all across the globe

Pilbara News - - Sport - Jeni Gates

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 pres­i­dent@egfc.com.au.

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.
