Got a question - what are the actual rules for a compo like this i.e. minimum sizes, rig restrictions, do you just keep all fish over the minimum size for weight etc - I have never fished a compo but I watched this last year and a couple of guys just dumped each small podlie on the deck to die for no reason.

Was also wondering if it was possible to keep fish alive in a bucket for the weigh in or is that not realistic?

youll find they have stewards that are in your area,fish caught weighed,returned,unless its of decent size and in with a chance.piers not good for keep nets,but would expect a club to follow conservation rules.dont kill what you dont need.:unsure:

thats what we did with celebration of the sea.

keeping fish alive is a case of a big bucket an aereotor pump,to keep water fresh, water change every 1-2 hours.

Rules and size sheet will be giving out on the day. Size sheet is the sfsa sizes. 3 hooks maximin.6 fish max on certain spieces eg caolfish mackeral.
As for releasing the fish no most of them go on creel bait. Thats why i dont fish in the club anymore. Been saying all fish Scottish week though the past 3 years and never done it might fish Scottish week this time, maybe.
Another friend of mine goes to the matches and only pays into 1 poll this the biggest flattie,when he catches a big 1 he releases the other which is only slightly lighter in wieght. This way he only kills 1 fish as he has'nt got money into the heaviest bag or none the rest exept heaviest flat. And the weekly matches is rovers not just breakwaters.

Would be a good day for anglers to have a day out with the kids too, as you could imagine if they got a few good fish and won some money and of coarse a trophy too. They would be over the moon.
hope its a bonny sunny day.
