How To Score Points

 HOW TO SCORE CLUB POINTS 

AS AT 01/07/14 FOR THE MOOLOOLABA GAME FISHING CLUB 

1. Financial members only can score points.

2. Whether a fish is tagged or captured an activity sheet and tag card correctly filled out in full and handed or posted to the Club Captain, is the only valid way of scoring points.

3. Activity sheets and tag cards must be in the Club Captain’s possession by the 7th of the following month the fish was tagged or captured to qualify for MGFC annual awards.

4. Activity sheets and tag cards must be in the Club Captain’s possession by the 28th of the following month the fish was tagged or captured to qualify for QGFA annual awards.

5. All record claim fish in the Game section must remain whole; any fish that is mutilated in any way must have an explanation in writing for the Club Captain to determine if the capture is legal. (Refer to GFAA Game fish journal in record claims).

6. GFAA angling and equipment rules apply to all times.

7. Heavy tackle zone starts at 150m depth, any line class in this zone less than 15kg for tagging will score as 15kg points. Point scoring is designed to accommodate species other than billfish that maybe available over twelve months in this zone.

8. Club fishing boundaries are all legal waters between Lady Musgrove Island in the north to Tweed Heads in the south. All points scored outside of these boundaries go to members out of area trophy only. No boat points will accrue for out of area points.

9. Fish may be captured and weighed on any IGFA line class. However, to score club points the fish must weigh the same or exceed the line class. (e.g. A fish caught on 6kg line must weigh 6kg or better). Applies to game section only.

10. Club rally days will be at the discretion of the Committee.

11. For the annual Club Champion trophy, the member who wins must have scored points in all sections including Game, Beach Rock & Estuary and Freshwater having the highest total points overall.
