The first meeting of the Bluewater Sportfishing Club was held on the 15th of April 1999. 15 members attended this meeting which would set the path that has given us the club that we now have. The members attending were very aware of the work that would be needed to get another fishing club up and running in Townsville. To achieve this aim the following committee was elected.
President: Graham Knight.
Secretary: Jan Knight.
Treasurer: Tina Watkins.
Club Captain: Mick Stewart
Weigh Master: Mick Harris
Tagging Officer: Phil Copp.
Social Member: Daniel Watkins.
All of the members from the original committee are still with the club. Although most are either holding different appointments or having a well deserved rest for a while. The club has gone from its original numbers to over 60 as it stands at this time. The club promotes a social atmosphere for the whole family and sharing knowledge gained on the norths waterways.
The BlueWater Sportfishing Club is always looking for new members. It does not matter if you have a boat, fish fresh water creeks, blue water, are land based, or just like to just talk about the one that got away. The Club meets at 7:30pm on the first Monday of every month at The Bulldogs Aussie Rules Club Rooms Pioneer Park.
