SFFNZ competition rules 2015 apply to this competition (apart from max 180cm net) in addition to the following regulations. Markers on both lakes defining the areas we will be fishing in each session. You cannot fish outside of these markers.
Each counting fish must be measured in the net and checked by your controller. The controller will then initial the fish size before you can continue fishing. Fish measurements are rounded up to nearest cm. It may not be possible to give other boats a 50m clearance on Lake Aniwhenua so this will be reduced to 30 meters on this lake only.
If the motor on the boat is running and a fish is hooked, the fish will not be allowed. Boat drivers should warn the other angler before starting the motor and give them sufficient time to retrieve their line. You will require a stopwatch to time each session, this may be found on your cell phone, which each angler is required to have on them at all times.
You may not stand to play a fish, only to net it.Only one rod can be assembled per angler at any one time.
