Fishing will commence at midnight on the Thursday. There are 10 inshore and 10 offshore species on the target list, when a competitor lands a fish, they take a photo of it on a brag mat or flat measuring device and upload it to the SCF Research & Events app. The website will incorporate LIVE scoreboards that update in real time and display the current leader for each category, as well as the size of their catch.
Everyone must gather at the Gracemere Hotel on the Thursday evening to collect their information packs, confirm participant registration and attend the briefing/presentation.
