Competition points

The Clubs fishing competition runs from the 1st October to the 31st May each year. During this time you will be able to submit your fish for points. Please make sure you measure your fish correctly. Incorrectly measured fish are not accepted. The measuring system was introduced a few years ago as this will allow you to enter a fish and then release it. This was not possible with weigh in system.

Here is how it works:

  1. You email your photo to the club at
  2. Include your name, membership number and the boat the fish was caught on, or say land if caught from shore
  3. Each fish entered will give you points; points will also be added to the boat the fish was caught on.
  4. Only the biggest fish of each species will count each month. E.g. you catch 3 snapper and 4 blue cod in the same month, you will only get points for the biggest snapper and for the biggest cod.
  5. You don’t have to keep track of which is your biggest fish each month; the weigh master will sort this out, just keep sending in the photos.
  6. Points will also go to the boat the fish is caught on.
  7. At the end of the year there will be a big prize giving for some of the biggest fish, most points and boat points collected. Categories are male, female and junior; boat, kayak, land, diving.
  8. Not all fish can be entered. Below is a table that will show you what fish counts and how many points they will get you. The length of the fish in cm will be multiplied with the factor in the table to calculate the points.
