- Species Hunt - split in to 2 age groups - under 11yrs & 11yrs+ to under 16yrs.
Score sheets need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hrs of each comp - these will be made available on the forum or emailed by request.
5 hooks at any one time over max of 2 rods (easier for juniors can use 1 rod to feather).
Area to fish:
All boats compeating will fish within Club Waters and within 5 miles of land (northern boundry of Club Waters). The captain of the boat deems what is suitable for crew and craft. Whether the competition goes ahead will be decision of Safety Officer\Comp Organiser by 19:00 the night before.
The decision whether each competition goes ahead will be made by the PBSBAC Safety Officer \ Comp Organiser day before each competition. A post will be put on the forum the night before each competition to confirm the decision.
Each Junior will be issued with a Species Hunt Score Sheet. Each species of fish caught will be awarded with the points stated on the sheet. Should a junior catch more than one of the same species then each additional fish will count as an additional one point. Its is important that the Parent/Skipper log all fish caught on each competition day. Please submit within 48hrs of the comp start - execpet on the final day, please bring form to Cobbs Quay by 17:00.
- Slight change this year with max of 20 for each species counting and only the first of a species taking the "species points", the rest score 1 point. Also, added an unlisted species - again 20 max of each and only 1 point each.
-- e.g. Bass + 5 points - so 2 bass = 6 points total, 20 bass = 24 points, 30 bass = 24 points
All Juniors must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Note: If a competition day is cancelled it may not be re-scheduled.
Juniors must be registered at least the day before each competiton starts (execpt for the last date (Sept) when 2 weeks notice is required). Registering is via the Comp Organiser or on this forum thread below.
Juniors over 11 are expected to bait up, cast and retrieve fish on their own with minimal help.
In event of a tie on points, the younger competitor will finish in the better position.
Comp Organiser's decision is final.
