Rules n Questions

Postby Big Kev » Tue Jan 03, 2017 9:32 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 2017. 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...see "League Table"for the full list of species

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


Rules

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 an 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.
All fish must be submitted by no longer than 1 week of capture.
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 "Contact" icon underneath my Profile pic at the top right hand corner of this page, thenSend private message and then simply 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.

Having spoken with Shaun he is taking a well earned break from running the show,so many thanks to him for all his time n effort. As a result i will be taking the reigns once again,so let the game begin...entries will qualify from Midnight 3/1/2017 until midnight on 31/12/2017. It`s free to enter and is surprising just how many points you can score,so it`s open for anyone to win....consistency is the key,bagging as many species as poss,rather than looking for lunkers all the time.
