Port Hedland Game Fishing Club Champion 2020/21 Season

This is the annual competition to determine our club champions Male, Female and Junior for our membership year, which runs from 1 September 2021 through to 31 August 2022.

This competition is free and open to all financial members of the Port Hedland Game Fishing Club.

Captures are to take place in Pilbara waters, no further than 55 nautical miles out to sea, or in creek systems. Catches can take place at any time during the season but not during club monthly members’ competitions or our 2 major tournaments.

All captures are to be photographed on a brag mat or a device that can be easily read by the weighmaster which clearly shows the length of the fish.

All photographs must be 1MB or smaller in size, contain a time/date stamp and be forwarded to promptly. Photos sent by text message will not be accepted. Any photographs deemed unacceptable because of age or lack of clarity will not be accepted (this is at the discretion of the Weighmaster). If the device used to take the photograph does not have the facility to display date/time, please send it by email, and attend the next member’s comp weigh in for verification of metadata of the photograph by a committee member.

All eligible fish species must be captured on rod and reel (no line classes to apply) within 55 nautical miles of our Club rooms.

Points will be allocated on a point per cm basis for each eligible species.

Champion Angler will be determined by the total points across all eligible species captured by the angler for the season. Upgrades will be allowed (if an angler captures a larger fish of the same species later in the year it will be accepted). Only one fish per species will count towards determining the champion angler.

In the event of a tie, it will be deemed that the angler who presented their photographs first will be the winner.
