WA BREAM CLASSICS RULES FOR 2018

WHERE TO FISH PERTH EVENTS:
•
Fishing may take place any where in the Swan or Canning rivers with the exception of restricted areas and no further downstream than the old Fremantle Traffic Bridge.
•
Do not go past the ‘Dogs Prohibited’ sign on the west end of Herisson Island.
•
Do not go past the ‘All Boats must keep to the North of Heirisson Island’ sign on the east end of Heirisson Island. Out of Bounds Areas:
•
Barrack street jetty area and boat club.
The water ski area from the Burswood to the Swan River Trust (SRT)building. This includes the SRT jetties.

MANDURAH EVENTS:
•
Fishing may take place anywhere within the Mandurah Estuary system including the Murray and Serpentine Rivers.
•
If asked to move from a canal owner, you must do so straight away.

WEIGH IN PROCEDURE AND POINT SCORING
•
Each team may bring in four bream in the boats and 3 bream in the kayaks to the weigh-in, and bream must a minimum of 26cm in size to the tip.
•
You can upgrade. When an upgrade fish is caught, one of the five(boats) four (kayaks) fish on the boat is to be released leaving only four (boats) three(kayaks)fish on the boat.
•
Fish must be alive to be considered for weighing. The organiser’s decision is
final.
•
Fish are to be released after the weigh in.
•
All anglers must be at the weigh in by the designated time (usually 2.00pm, but competitors should confirm this) any late arrivals will be penalised 50 grams per minute and anglers returning later than 15 minutes after the finish time will be disqualified. The organiser may exercise discretion for exceptional circumstances.
•
Teams will finish the session by placing the key tag back on the appropriate allocated number before the session finishes. Teams placing their key tag on the allocated number after the session finish time will incur a weight penalty. Generally,WA Bream Classic officials are not permitted to place the key tag for anglers it must be placed by one of the anglers competing.
•
Dead fish, or those unable to swim away from the release point (as deemed by WA Bream Classic officials) will not score points. At all times, bream are the responsibility of individual teams.
•
Boats can return to the weigh-in earlier than the allotted time, however, that is all the team in that craft can fish for the day.
•
Ties will be settled by count back on each team’s individual big bream (it is up to each team to have their biggest bream weighed), if neither team in the count back has weighed their biggest bream then a tie will be awarded. In the unlikely event that tied teams have not weighed their biggest bream and are in 5th or 6th position then the highest finishing position in the very next round will earn the Grand Final spot. All teams will be asked to weigh their biggest bream in the last round of the year.




TEAM OF THE YEAR (TOY)
•
The Boat WA Bream Classic Team of the Year (TOY) is one of W.As most prestigious awards a Bream team can achieve. It rewards the team that is the most consistent highly placed team throughout the qualifying events, with points per round including the Grand Final allocated according to placing.
•
TOY will be based on your total points over the 2018 season including the Grand Final.
•
During all Rounds the points will be allocated on the following basis, the first placed Team will receive 100 points, and each place below that receives one point less:
1st-100
2nd- 99
3rd-98
4th-97
5th-96
•
Teams do not need to catch a fish to receive TOY points, however, they do need to fish in an event to score, and teams who catch no fish for a tournament will incur a 10 TOY point penalty for that round.
•
You must fish with the same team member for all three events to be eligible for TOY.
•
Team names can be changed from round one to round two, but to remain eligible for TOY you must keep the same team of two anglers for all events including the Grand Final, if this does not happen you will still accumulate points towards Grand Final Qualification but not TOY.
•
If there are equal weights with no countback then TOY points will also be equal, e.g. Equal 1st means both teams would get 100 points.
•
At the end of the series when TOY is finalised if there is an equal score, then TOY will be settled by countback on the Grand Final result. If this is not the case,then the team with the best performance in the most recent event will gain the higher placing.
