Merimbula Lakeview Trophy Board

Last Update  31 January 2020

All rules as per the Clubs By-laws.

The Merimbula Lakeview Trophy Board runs 365 days of the year, annually from 1 June to 31 May.

There are three categories :
Adult
Junior – persons up until their 16th birthday
Small Fry – persons up until their 11th birthday.

This in-house Club Competition has a Trophy Board covering most of the fish species commonly caught in the MBGLAC area. All the species on the Trophy Board are eligible for over $3,000 in cash and trophies.

Any financial Member is permitted to submit any of the species providing the fish is caught within Club Boundary waters. Submission must be made within fourteen (14) days of capture and or release.

Boundaries:  Deep Sea, Land Based, Lake and Beach are from: all areas between Goalen Head to the North (360 33”S) and the Southern-most point of Disaster Bay to the South (370 19”S) or unless designated by the committee.

Freshwater Fishing:  Eucumbene, Jindabyne, Tantangara with all tributes running to or from them and Brogo Dam.

Game Fishing:  You do not have to be a NSWGFA member to submit your fish to the trophy board. Those that do fill in capture cards, must also submit an appropriately completed Catch Slip in order to have the fish added to the Trophy Board. There are no provisions for Tag & Release cards are accepted for Marlin only in 2019-2020.

Marlin will be recorded by quantity for either tag and release or captured per angler for the purpose of determining the marlin species winners and points to the club champion. 

All game fish (other than Marlin) must be weighed with the exception of Kingfish that require a Photo on a DPI Brag Mat or by Tape Measure if longer than 1200mm now provided with a brag mat purchase or for a minimal cost by the club.

All NSWGFA game fishing rules apply for game fish being submitted for the trophy board, this includes minimum capture weights for game fish. 

All Non Game Fish are measured by length and photographed on a DPI (Fisheries) Brag Mat. Any species longer than 1200mm in length can be photographed with a tape measure, now provided with a brag mat purchase or for a minimal cost by the club. Please note that the MBGLAC asks that all Bream, Bass, Estuary Perch  and Mulloway are released after measure. All other fish may be release or kept.  

These fish may be then released or kept.

Measurements are from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail, as for DPI length measurements. No undersize (DPI) fish will be counted.

Ideally, the fish & photo can be entered through our website here http://www.mbglac.com.au/fish-capture-entry/ these fish are verified by the weigh-master before being added to the Trophy Board.

Catch slips can also be filled in manually at the Club and Photos verified by a committee member or weigh-master. The Committee Member or weigh-master will verify the length. The length may be adjusted by the Committee Member or weigh-master before signing off on the measurement.

 

The Annual Catch and Release draw:

There are now 5 species in our catch and release section, with Bass added in 2019. For this section a Catch Slip is put into a barrel for the random draw of a $200 Cash Prize**.

The Catch & Release species are Bass, Bream, Dusky Flathead, Estuary Perch, and Jewfish (Mulloway)
You can enter as many catch slips for these species as you catch for a chance at the $200 Cash Draw**.

**To be eligible to collect this cash prize, the member must be at the Presentation Night Draw.

Trophy Board Prizes:

The catch and release ‘Big Bream Trophy’ is $300 cash.

For all Other Species:

Adult prizes are $30 Longest, $20 Second, $10 Third – for each species

Juniors & Small Fry prizes are $15 Longest, $10 Second, $5- for each species indicated

Club Records $50 – When this occurs it replaces the value of first prize, either Adult, Junior or Small Fry
Black = Adult, Green = Juniors or Small Fry, **Catch & Release

Scoring:

Only your longest fish can be used for scoring

The ten longest fish of each species are scored on a scale of 10 to 1. 10 Being the Longest, 1 being the shortest.
In the event of ‘same length’ entries, the earliest date is used to determine the score.

The person with the most points is deemed Club Champion.

The same process is used for Men’s, Ladies, Junior, Small Fry and Lake & Beach.

Club Champion, Men’s Champion, Ladies Champion, Junior Champion and Small Fry Champion all receive prizes and Trophies as well as the runner-up of each category.
