GAMEX is Western Australia’s premier fishing event. Held in March each year by the Exmouth Game Fishing Club, GAMEX offers teams the chance to compete for 23 different prize categories targeting over 35 different species of game fish - including all six Australian billfish species – in the fish rich waters off Exmouth. No other fishing tournament in the country offers such diverse and productive fishing within a short distance from shore.

In GAMEX 2014 there were over 100 billfish tagged each day - catch and release numbers that rival those of the world's very best game and sport fishing tournaments. Large and small vessels participate in GAMEX, with experienced and novice anglers fishing side by side. All fishing areas are close to launching facilities, moorings or marina pens, and the wide range of species and tournament sections ensure everyone has a great chance of winning a fantastic prize.


But GAMEX is more than just a fishing tournament.  The GAMEX social calendar features functions, children's clinics, gourmet evenings, family fun days and team dress-up nights. The event also includes scientific studies, educational sessions and product information. In short, a wealth of activities for both anglers and non-anglers.

Dates for GAMEX 2018 are March 16-24. For entry forms or more information on GAMEX 2018, visit: or contact the Exmouth Game Fishing Club.
