  • When you catch your target species simply lay the live fish with the nose in line with the “0” (zero) measurement on your brag mat.
  • Photograph the fish so the entire length can be seen in the photograph along with your entry number.

  • Boat winners are required to be present at time of draw.

MEASURING SYSTEM

For all fish, take a photo on a brag matt with your phone or camera with your 2021 registration number clearly visible and then release the fish immediately at the place of capture.

Please refer to illustration below. Photos must be clear and include the whole fish. Photo must include your registration number. Catch must be returned to the water immediately as it is illegal to keep or hold a Murray Cod over 75cm in your live well or keep net.

The Deniliquin RSL Fishing Classic is a Catch & Release Event.
