Team Competitions

The annual team competitions are proving to be very popular events on the Club fishing calendar. These competitions are conducted for only a six hour period on a Sunday morning. The competition commences at 5:00am with lines up at 11:00am and weigh in commencing at midday at the Caloundra Power Boat Club. Anglers are only permitted to weigh in a total of six fish with no more than two fish per specie. Following the weigh in, a blind draw is conducted to make two person teams. The points score for each competitor is combined with their drawn partners score to give an overall points score. The pair with the most points is declared the winners.
