Sunshine Coast Sportfishing Club Inc.

Welcome to the Sunshine Coast Sportfishing Club Inc.


We are a social and family orientated fishing club whose members cover a wide and diverse range of anglers from beginners through to the more experienced and dedicated fisher.

The club fosters a culture of fellowship and learning giving its members the opportunity to further develop their skills and knowledge of fishing whilst following best practice in fishing sustainability and boating safety. This is facilitated via our monthly members’ meetings, targeted workshops and shared learnings exchanged between club members.

While socially orientated the club has a competitive nature with regular club competitions, fish of the month comps and annual awards. Competitions are conducted in fresh water impoundments, estuaries, beach and offshore environments, both in local area and camping away formats. These competitions are usually conducted over a weekend culminating in a Sunday afternoon weigh in & social gathering.

The club is an ANSA affiliated club and as such follows the national body’s rules and guidelines whilst embracing the association’s motto of Sport, Conservation, Integrity.

The Club is closely aligned to the ANSA Qld Branch utilising many of the resources the branch has on offer. The club also interacts with other ANSA Qld clubs in both a formal and informal manner.


The Club hosts a Private Facebook Group that is restricted to SCSFC Members Only. This group provides a forum for members to share information with all members regarding their fishing experiences, upcoming trips, competitions, photos and other points of interest.

Maroochydore BCF Store has kindly offered members of the Club a 10% discount * off full priced merchandise.  * * Some exclusions apply.   Presentation of the Club membership card is required (or a pic of it), so make sure you grab one at the next meeting.

* May be subject to change without notice      ** Yeti, Weber etc excluded

A big shout out to ANSA Qld President, Shaun Manthey who travelled from Kingaroy to attend our monthly members meeting.   He was kind enough to share an insight into his fishing life and ANSA’s role in our Club.   We had lots of members attend, so thank you for making Shaun so welcome.
