Intra Club Lady Angler Fishing Tournament Rules

Everyone must have fun.

  1. All boat occupants must be members in good standing.
  2. All entries must meet current state or federal regulations.
  3. All participants are responsible for identify/marking their own fish.
  4. Fishing hours will be from 6:30 am until 3:00 pm, you must be in weigh-in line no later than 3:00 pm.
  5. Weigh-in will be at Carolina Beach Boatyard, between 2:30 and 3:00 pm.
  6. Intra Club Tournament Entries do not have to be caught on live bait (ex. Spanish on Clark Spoons or Trout on Mirrolures); however, those fish not caught on live bait are not eligible for the annual Chart Buster Tournament.
  7. In the case of a tie, the first fish entered wins. A participant can only win one prize. In a multi-species tournament, if no fish are caught in one category, the purse is divided into other categories.
  8. Amendments to the rules may be announced prior to or at tournament registrations.
  9. A person cannot enter a fish caught by someone else. You must physically make the catch (i.e. 2 ladies on same boat, one catches 2 fish, cannot share with the 2nd lady).
  10. Only the ladies entered in the tournament can fish during the tournament.
  11. The captain or man on the boat can catch bait, bait hooks, cast rod, and gaff/net fish. He cannot fish/hold the rod and set the hook and then hand it over to be reeled in. He can get it out of a rod holder and hand it to a woman.
  12. Any rule that needs a variation for a specific need, bring to the board to get waiver as needed.
  13. The tournament fish species shall be Flounder, Red Drum, Trout (Grey or Speckled), King Mackerel, and Spanish Mackerel.
  14. All fish must be NC legal and must be brought to the scales to weigh in. Example Red Drums must be In Slot and brought to the scale. Flounder when out of season, you will take a picture on a hard measuring device, showing the mouth closed up against the end, clearly showing fish length on the ruler.  Flounder winner is based on length.
  15. If multiple fish species are weighed by one person and have the heaviest in multiple categories then that person will receive only first place for the fish category with the least weighed in one of those categories. (Example: one lady weighs heaviest Spanish and King, if 5 Spanish were weighed and 2 Kings, she would win first place King only.)
