FFF Seadogs 2018 barra brag mat competition - register here

Note - additional prize sponsors may be added throughout the competition.

FFF SEADOGS 2018

Open to fishos in all states with barramundi. Fish are taken from the best six of 11 rounds so you can enter up until July with a chance to win. But entering earlier is wise.

This is an online brag mat fishing competition, free to amateur fishos/skippers who display a FFF sticker on the outside of their car or boat, or on a console high enough to be seen outside the boat, for the duration of the comp. Landbased fishos can display a sticker on their tackle box or bike.

Order a FFF sticker for $5+pp at http://www.fishfinderbooks.com/product_ ... cts_id=124 ... without a sticker the entry fee is $30, email fishfindermaps2@gmail.com for payment details.

All skippers/entrants must register their boat by posting on this thread a pic of their boat or vehicle with its FFF sticker attached. Fishos can enter at any time throughout the comp but may not enter fish in earlier rounds.

The comp is judged on pictures of fish on brag mats. Each centimetre of fish gets a point. Unlimited entries are allowed but only each competitor's biggest fish from each month is eligible for points. Entrants will need a branded brag mat (no home-made ones allowed), a camera and a newspaper from the month of each round to enter.

Pictures of fish must be taken on the brag mat with the newspaper in view. The newspaper or anything else must not cover the fish in a manner that could hide mutilation of the fish.

Each brag mat entry post must also include a photo of the fish being held by the captor near(ish) where it was caught.

Dam-caught barramundi (stocked impoundment barra) are only eligible in Rounds 7 and 8.

***

WHO WINS

Winners are decided on each entrant's best fish from six of the 11 rounds.

***There is an end-of-year Grand Champion, decided on the best fish from six rounds.
***There are various end-of-year Runner-Up Champions, decided on the best fish from six rounds.

The first round kicks off in February. The final round ends December 20.

Round 1, Feb - Barramundi
Round 2, Mar - Barra & Threadfin
Round 3, Apr - Barra & Threadfin
Round 4, May - Jewfish + Barra (jewfish have a -10cm handicap)
Round 5, June - Tuna and Queenfish + Barra
Round 6, July - Mackerel + Barra (mackerel have a -10cm handicap)
Round 7, Aug - Billabong, Dam & Salty Barra
Round 8, Sep - Billabong, Dam & Salty Barra
Round 9, Oct - Barra and Threadfin
Round 10, Nov - Barra and Threadfin
Round 11, Dec - Barra and Threadfin


There are 10cm bonus points for landbased fish in 2018, but the location picture must clearly show the fisherman and place of capture.

A deckie's fish may be entered by the owner of the registered boat as long as they are caught in the registered boat, and the boat is recognisable in the photo.

Skippers who have registered their boat in the comp may fish as a deckie on another registered Seadogs boat and claim their fish as their own entry, as long as both parties are in agreement. Otherwise, the skipper of the registered boat on the water on the day claims any fish caught.

All fish to be measured from lip to centre of tail (eg inside fork or outer curve). Fish may have mouths open or closed on the brag mat, the aim being to get the fish measured and photographed as fast as possible.

IMPORTANT: Each entry must include a short description about the capture. Photos must depict live or freshly-caught fish, no necked or obviously dead fish. As there are no stewards on the water to enforce/check that rules are followed, the organiser reserves the right to disallow any entry for any reason, and disqualify any entrant for any reason. The judge's decision on all matters will be final.

Fish caught while competing in other competitions are not eligible. Professional fishing guides may not enter the comp.

In the event of a draw the FFF judge will decide a winner, based on the quality of the photos in the entries.

There is no size limit on fish, but please photograph undersize fish quickly for a fast release.

By entering, entrants agree to be solely responsible for their own safety, knowledge of the waterways, and to ensure their boats are in good working order. Entrants agree to not hold the organiser liable in any way.

By posting your first fish up (an entry) you agree to be bound by the rules.

***Misinformation supplied in an entry about location or capture method results in disqualification***

how many is enough lures, rods and reels. Is there a magic number, considering you usually only catch 1 fish on a single lure on the one rod and reel your casting with.

If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!
