Members wishing to go fishing should try to attend the previous Club Meeting to book their trip. Alternatively, book by phoning either of the Angling Sub-committee or, if unavailable, another Committee Member. In any dispute relating to angling and bookings, the Angling
Committee has the ultimate decision.
The congregation point is determined by the elected Skipper of the day in conjunction with the weighmaster There will be a BBQ at Clubhouse weigh-ins on Saturday competition days if sufficient numbers attend – a small fee may be levied to cover BBQ costs.
Visitors are welcome to fish at any time, but competition entry is restricted to Club members.
An angling entrance fee of $10 is levied for each competition. Angler’s points, based on the published ratings for each fish type, together with fish weights, are recorded on the Entry and Weigh in Forms for determination of winners. Point ratings, competition rules and entry forms are provided to each member and are available at the Clubhouse, at the nomination meetings and on the Web site.
Sharks, Snapper and Elephant may be gutted before weighing. Fish must be in good condition and not frozen. When different fish species are caught on same day, members can only submit 1 species for competition points. Catches must be verified by another Club member as they are caught. Competitors are to record all fish submitted for measuring on their Entry and Weigh in Forms. Forms must be completed and handed to the Weighmaster prior to weigh-in. A single form can be used for one boat on which individuals are listed separately. Section 3 of the form is to be completed by the submitting competitor and witnessed by the Weighmaster at the Scales. The member then signs and surrenders the form to the Weighmaster.
Club away fishing events scheduled as Club Competitions, appoint a weigh-in master and follow the same rules.
Competitions will be cancelled when winds of over 20kph are forecast over the areas to be fished
