Please take note.
This year, to help the Weigh Masters plan and man the TSFC weigh station, it has been decided by Committee that once the tournament starts the weigh station will have set hours for the weighing of fish and signing-off of Catch Cards.
These hours are
7:00am to 8:00am daily
5:00pm to 7:00pm daily
Final weigh in on Sunday 15th August will be 12.00noon to 3:00pm. 3:00pm is the finish of the event, no exceptions.
The TSFC chiller will be available to store fish outside of weigh in times.It is also important to note that this year only TWO Southern Bluefin Tuna may be weighed per angler for the duration of the tournament, no catch limit for other species.
A tournament guide has been produced and will be give to each skipper and available for any angler wanting to familiarise themselves with the rules and guidelines of this tournament.

This event will start straight after Club night finishes at 6:30pm.
Two serious matters that need to be addressed.
1) VHF Channel 3: The Club are the proud owners of VHF Channel 3 but are receiving more and more complaints from concerned members about the abusive language and total disrespect for others some people are showing while using Channel 3. For those that aren’t aware, every call is recorded. While the Club has not actioned these recordings as yet, if the abuse of Channel 3 continues we will take the next steps required to stop this happening, including shutting the channel down when abusive users persist in using the channel.
2) Fish heads and skeletons in the Marina. There have been a number of incidences lately of fish heads and skeletons found floating in the Marine, which is just not on.
We don’t know who is responsible, and hopefully it is not any Club members, so this is just a reminder to all that it is your responsibility to dispose of all fish remains in an appropriate manner.
