FFF Seadogs - Round 2 - The Run-off

FFF Seadogs - Round 2 - The Run-off

Post 'em up on this thread. By posting you agree to the rules below.

The FFF Seadogs 2013 Online Fishing Comp

RULES

The rules here replace any previously published rules, including those printed in North Australian Fishing & Outdoors Magazine or elsewhere. The rules here have evolved after discussions among FFF users.

While this was primarily an NT comp, entries from other states are allowed and it may evolve into a State of Origin-type event for barra fishos. This follows discussion on FFF. No dam fish will be allowed however - only wild fish. No fish permitted from Queensland's Boyne or Kolan Rivers for 2013.

Suburban ornamental lakes are excepted.

There are 11 month-long rounds for 2013. The first round kicks off February 1. The final round ends December 20.

The comp is judged on pictures of fish on brag mats. Each centimetre of fish is awarded a point. Unlimited entries are allowed but only the biggest fish from each month will be eligible for points, from the best seven of the competitor's rounds. A local newspaper or printout from within the month of each round must be visible in all brag mat photo entries. There must also be a photo of the fish being held by the captor on location nearish to where it is caught.

From Round 3 - If the fish is caught by a deckie, the registered boat's owner (skipper) must also be in the location pic, either with or without the deckie who caught the fish.

The Grand Champ and successive place getters will be decided from his/her total from the best seven rounds (total centimetres). There are 11 rounds.

Billfish centimetres from the billfish round will be halved to help equalise with the fish from other rounds.

All fish to be measured from lip to centre of tail (eg inside fork or outer curve). In the case of billfish it will be the lip of the lower jaw to inside tail fork. 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 (eg Darwin Harbour, or river name) and type of lure or bait etc. Photos must depict live or freshly-caught fish, no necked or obviously dead fish - the judge's decision on this will be final. 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.

No newspapers or other stuff covering fish in the brag mat photos, lest someone cut their fish in half and extend it.

Fish caught while competing in other competitions are not eligible.

Brag mats or fish measuring stickers must be well-known brands or government products - no home made measuring devices permitted.


Rounds for 2013


Round 1, Feb - The Wet, barra
Round 2, Mar - The Run-off, barra
Round 3, Apr - The Greenwater, barra
Round 4, May - Jewfish Busters
Round 5, June - Mackerel Maulers
Round 6, July - Tuna and Queenfish
Round 7, Aug - Billabong Barra
Round 8, Sep - Saltwater Barra
Round 9, Oct - Billfish
Round 10, Nov - Reefie Madness (eligible fish = goldies, red emperor, coral trout, trickies, cod and groper under 1.2m, jobfish, red bass, chinaman, maori sea perch)
Round 11, Dec - Powertails (c.a.t.fish)

Landbased fish will get an extra 10cm (10 points), but must be verified by a photo at the location with the fish looking alive. Landbased fish photo entries of fish taken from within 300m of boat ramps will not be eligible, except Shady Camp Barrage, NT, and Buffalo Creek rockbar, NT (other spots on application and approval). Landbased fish have to be caught from landbased spots readily accessible by road - no landbased entries taken from shore after getting there in a boat.

All landbased entries from Round 3 onward must have a pic showing the captor holding the fish. :mrgreen:

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

For a chance to win, it is important that entrants put up a fish each round even if it is smaller than the leading fish in the round, as the captor of the leading fish may not get a good fish in subsequent rounds. There is no size limit on fish, but please photograph undersize fish quickly for a fast release.

Billfish will have to be photographed as best the captors can with a brag mat or tape measure, with the newspaper in view, and the FFF judge will estimate size.

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 to hold the organiser liable in any way.

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

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!

Hey guys,

Went out today to one of my favourite creeks. This time I headed right up to see if there was any water coming of the flood plains like I did yesterday absolutely dry but the grass was green haha, I should of stayed home!

The water was that dirty but I ended up with 6 barra this one being the biggest, saw this one tailing. It's only 59cm but better being on the board than having a donut!!! Good tides in a couple of weeks.

The pic of me holding the barra i thought the iphone had a timer :bonk: so I do understand if the pic doesn't count.

the bilabong down the bottom end was spilling over nicely loads of bait and little barra but got the bigger one further up towards the bridge, the overflow back a bit has been repaired which sucks that used to be a good spot to have a walk and a flick
