The Eden Open Invitational Game Fishing Tournament is held in early April each year.

The tournament is a 3 day event and attracts 40-50 boat teams from up and down the coast. The prize pool is in excess of $15,000.

Most recently the club had a number of Blue Marlin caught with the largest weighing in at an Australian record 284kg caught by Len Vollebargt.

The club also strongly supports the NSW fisheries Tag and Release (T&R) program with more than half of our club and tournament prizes being awarded based on points for T&R fish.

Throughout its history, the ES&GFC has repeatedly recorded catches of various fish species including Yellow and Blue fin Tuna, Thresher and Mako Sharks, Broadbill and Short bill Spearfish and Marlin.  As a club affiliated with both the Game Fishing Association Australia (GFAA) and the Australian National Sportfish Association (ANSA) we hold several past and present Australian and NSW GFA records for fish caught in our surrounding waters.
