In 1969 the first annual fishing tournament was held in Exmouth. This event was officially called GAMEX in 1978 when the Exmouth Game Fishing Club formerly registered the name. Today GAMEX can attract over 300 experienced and novice anglers to target over 40 game fish species in waters close to launching facilities from large or small vessels.
Support from local business over the decades has built this tournament to be recognised as a major event in WA. Corporate and government assistance allows the EGFC to showcase products and Exmouth as a destination. There are amazing prizes for over 25 sections, but the camaraderie and awesome fishing is the main drawcard that entices state, national and international participants. Surveys estimate that the event directly generates over 1 million dollars in revenue for the Exmouth community.
The focus of this year’s event is to encourage previous competitors to return and new anglers to celebrate what has been a successful event in it’s 50th year. Our new angler initiative will encourage up to 50 new participants with free entry, while we also offer existing anglers the opportunity to get a reduced entry fee.
GAMEX is more than just six days of fishing. It offers social evenings, educational activities, scientific studies, product information and displays. There are kids fishing clinics, filleting demonstrations, along with opportunities to meet renowned captains and anglers.
GAMEX is an ideal opportunity to showcase and promote business, with media and promotional opportunities including advertising in magazine, radio, television and social media.
