Points Scoring System.
The Offshore Club is primarily an offshore, deep sea fishing club though members are free to fish where they please. Offshore
was one of the first clubs to introduce the 'species' fishing concept in its monthly field day competitions which allows both
inshore and offshore fishers the chance to compete on a level playing field. Under this system only one fish of each species can be
weighed in at a club field day and has produced a fairer and more competitive nature to the competitions.
Points are awarded on the basis of 10 points per listed species (the more common species i.e. Jewfish, Snapper, Skippy, King
George whiting etc.), 2 points per unlisted species, 5 points per kilo, 10 points per heaviest listed species, 30 points for
a club record and 15 points for attendance. Weigh ins are now very interesting with some unusual, quality species being weighed
all the time.

As you can see, the club moves around a bit and has quite a few country field days. We believe this keeps things interesting,
as you are not stuck fishing the same ground all the time and similarly the country field days allow the club members to
experience some of the best bottom fishing locations on the coast, as well as being great social weekends where good mates
can get together.
The Offshore Club would like to invite anybody to join up and take part in the club's activities. The club has divisions for
Men, Veterans, Ladies and Juniors and field days are held at several locations up and down the coast.
The club is full of members eager to assist less experienced fishers who would like to improve their skills and success rate.
Similarly for the more experienced fishers out there, there are more than enough 'old salts' to have friendly competition
with, if the sporting side of the club is what attracts you.
Also, because we are a smaller club, the atmosphere is friendlier and more intimate, without the daunting feeling of being
a 'number in the crowd'.
Club meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month at the Sports Association of Australia on Stancliff Street in Mt
Lawley at 7:30 pm.
