Rules and Questions

Postby Shaun1118 » Thu Jan 01, 2015 9:00 pm

What it's about:

The idea is to compete against your mates on the forum to see who can catch the biggest fish of each species on the list during 2015. To keep interest high I've adopted a format that will be easy for everyone to score points and continue scoring points throughout the year regardless of where you choose to fish.

How it works:

A maximum of 6 points will be awarded to a fish the scoring will work as such;
1st............................. 6pts
2nd............................ 5pts
3rd............................. 4pts
4th............................. 3pts
5th.............................. 2pts
All other qualifying fish....... 1pts

Rules

There are no species specific minimum weights however all fish must weigh at least 8 ounces except for Bream, Turbot, Garfish, Gurnard and Sole, these must be 4oz minimum.

Your largest fish of each species will count, if you submit a 8oz dab in January and then submit a 10oz Dab in May the 8oz Dab will be moved off the board.

Digital scales must be used to weigh fish and all weights will be rounded down. Most digi scales weigh in lbs-oz-dr and in 8dr increments i.e 2-5-8. Some may show the "actual drams" i.e 2-5-7 which would be rounded down to 2-5-0, 2-5-10 would be rounded down to 2-5-8

No fish will be accepted if they have been caught from a mark where access has been gained by boat/yak. This is an unfair advantage and would not be in keeping with the spirit of the competition.

Please try to make your fish pics as clear as poss however I do not wish to see fish hanging on the scales ;)

All fish submissions must be accompanied by a report in the reports section written either by yourself or someone else on that session, its doesnt need to be a essay but regular reports help keep people in the loop and its inline with the forum spirit.

Only fish caught from the coast between the Keer River (Morecambe) to River Dovey (Barmouth) will count (includes Anglesey and Holyhead).

Rule 7 Applies

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To submit a fish click the PM button Image at the bottom of this post and fill in the blanks:

Claims should be submitted to me via p.m within 1 week of capture with the following...
Species ____________
Name of captor ____________
Venue ____________
Date of capture ____________
Weight ____________
Photo of fish ____________

Any questions just ask.

Whilst I'm not doing this myself (because my personal targets lie elsewhere ;)), I've had a go in the past and it is great fun. As a past winner, I think it's all about targeting the right species at the right time .... and then catching them obviously!

If I were doing this right now, in addition to the obvious Cod hunt I'd be thinking "where can I catch a decent Flounder, before they go out to spawn at the end of the month". I'd also be thinking about getting a decent Coley whilst they're around in numbers ;)
