Merimbula Lakeview Trophy Board

 

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 a Catch Slip in order to have the fish added to the Trophy Board. There are no provisions for Tag & Release, these are covered by NSWGFA.

All game fish must be weighed with the exception of Kingfish that require a Photo on a DPI Brag Mat or by Tape Measure now provided with a brag mat purchase or for a minimal cost by the club.

Game Rules, Line Class etc are not a requirement to be part of this in-house Club Competition.

All Non Game Fish are measured by length and photographed on a DPI (Fisheries) Brag Mat. Any species longer than 1.2 meters in length can be photographed with a tape measure, now provided with a brag mat purchase or for a minimal cost by the club.

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 weighmaster 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 weighmaster. The Committee Member or weighmaster will verify the length. The length may be adjusted by the Committee member before signing off on the measurement.

There are now 5 species in our catch and release section, now including Bass. 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 Draw. Only your longest fish can be used for scoring.

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

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

Juniors prizes are $20 Longest, $15 Second, $10- for each species indicated

Small Fry $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:
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.
