If you are a member and “have caught the big one” have it weighed! The club has competitions running throughout the year. To enter the competitions, weight tickets must be presented to the Weigh Master.
Our major competition is for the Heaviest Fish. The weight of the heaviest fish in a nominated list of species is recorded for the period from 1 July to 30 June. There are four categories in this competition: Men, Ladies, Boys and Girls. The angler who catches the heaviest fish in each species in a category during the year receives a trophy at our presentation night.
At the end of the year (June), the angler from any category who catches the largest number of heaviest fish is awarded the Club Champion trophy.
Also from within this competition, one fish is selected by the committee in each of the categories (Men, Ladies, Boys and Girls) each year for the Most Meritorious Fish award.
The second competition is our Fish of the Month competition. This competition has three categories, Men, Ladies and Juniors. At the beginning of the year, a nominated species of fish is chosen for each month as the Fish of the Month. The list is published in the Newsletter and on the Website. In any month, the angler submitting a weigh ticket for the heaviest nominated fish in a category is awarded a cash prize.
The angler with the heaviest fish is also awarded 3 points, the angler with the next heaviest fish receives 2 points, and all anglers submitting a weight ticket for the species of the month receive 1 point. Points are tallied throughout the year and an All Rounder Award is presented to the angler scoring the highest number of points by the end of the year, for Seniors (from Men and Ladies) and for Juniors (from Boys and Girls).
