1. Only artificial baits to be used, no live bait permitted whatsoever. Please crimp your barbs and have barbless hooks, this will minimize injuries to the fish caught.
2. Only live, bass fish to be weighed by the weigh master (bass only).
3. All fish must be released safely back to the dam where they have been caught straight after being weighed and recorded by the weigh master. In the event of a gut hooked fish, please trim the line out of the mouth and allow the weigh master to remove the hook for you, so as to ensure no further damage to the fish. They have been trained to remove hooks, so ask them to show you how.
4. No fish may be removed from the premises.
5. Care should be taken not to hold the fish out of the water for longer than a minute. Please signal to a marshal to assist you. Hold the fish by the lower jaw and keep the fish alive in the water until a weigh master has reached you. Please keep the fish wet as long as possible and do not allow the fish to be placed on the grass as this removes its protective coating.
