Makaira Game Reels are built from the ground up to be the toughest and most durable reels an angler could own. Constructed from the finest and strongest components available, Makaira series reels are big game reels developed to pursue everything from Giant Trevally and trophy-sized Yellowtail, to the most formidable adversaries in the ocean, like giant Bluefin Tuna, Marlin, cow Yellowfin Tuna and large sharks.

SAFE BOATING NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL You are a member of a club that is affiliated to the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council Inc. With that comes some responsibility for safe boating. Whether your vessel is small or large, as skipper you need to know about your legal responsibilities, as well as the safety equipment and procedures required for your vessel. Being a responsible skipper on board any vessel means that you are in charge. This is not just a tradition; it’s also the law. You are responsible for the safety of the boat and all persons onboard. As skipper you need to know that operating a vessel in a way that causes any unnecessary risk, is an offence. The same applies to maintaining the vessel and its equipment. BEFORE YOU GO: • Check tides and a marine weather forecast. • Check that all equipment on board is in working order: Check that your vessel is seaworthy and capable of making the intended trip. • Tell someone where you plan to go and when you intend to return. If your plans change let them know. • It is a legal requirement in New Zealand for approved PFDs (life jackets) to be carried on all vessels. Be sure that each person has a PFD that is the correct size and fit. They must be worn at times of heightened risk. For example, rough seas, non-swimmers, alcohol consumption, crossing any bar, emergencies and distress. When not being worn, it has to be stowed where it is immediately accessible. • Carry all necessary supplies for an emergency, i.e. fuel, food, water and warm clothing. • Study a chart of the area you intend to voyage to. Make yourself aware of all possible dangers. Ask for local advice if in doubt. • Always have an operating VHF radio on board. A handheld VHF only has limited battery life, but if kept in a waterproof container is ideal in a capsize situation. Cell phones are only a secondary means of communication. Once again only if kept dry. • Be absolutely sure you have adequate means of effective communication that will work after a capsize, i.e. Red Flares, VHF, 406 mHz EPIRB. ON BOARD • Show everyone what safety equipment is carried, where it is stored and how it works. • Tell everyone where your voyage is taking you beyond sheltered water. It is very sensible to have at least two people on the boat, with one of them over the age of 18 years. • If a significant accident or injury occurs, it is your responsibility to report it to Maritime New Zealand.

PRESIDENT’S REPORT SEPTEMBER 2016 Dear Delegates, our guests and hosts Being in the company of the delegates and leaders of so many clubs affiliated to the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council is something that Andrea and I look forward to every year. Your passion and commitment to serving your clubs and fellow delegates is what makes this Council strong and durable. Thank you for your efforts and enthusiasm. Our Council is well served by its Board members and various sub-committees whose energies and endeavors seem to grow by the month. Keeping up to speed with these guys has been challenging. I want to thank our secretary, treasurer and Executive Officer Dave Lockwood. Your regular attendance and support has made such a difference to my Presidency this year. There have been times when we have both been stretched to our limits. I am pleased to advise we now have a handle on the business of Council and are now squarely focused on fine tuning our new systems and refining our governance procedures. The feedback and advice we receive from experienced and vigilant delegates at Zone level offers us good insights as to where improvements are required. It has been a busy year for the Fishing sub-committee with the braid debate getting real attention at IGFA level. Thanks to Mark Hemmingway and Pete Saul taking the time to travel to Florida to participate in the highly anticipated IGFA Symposium. Mark and Pete will brief us in more detail later at this year’s AGM. This year we conducted our first Nationals without Roz Nelson at the helm. A quite daunting prospect. We can see how busy Roz has been for all those years. We all enjoyed outstanding fishing and comradeship. With 1646 anglers from 41 clubs competing hard we had our hands full. For the first time we were trialing club recorders entering their own catch records into the contest database. This was a successful trial with some good lessons learnt. We intend to develop the capacity for all clubs to do likewise in the near future. We are delighted to welcome ITM aboard, joining Simrad in a co-sponsorship role for the 2017 Nationals. In April we passed another milestone with the 1000th presentation of the Hiwi the Kiwi Goes Fishing interactive show for primary aged school children. Both myself and Dave Lockwood, our Executive

2017

Officer, attended the presentation at Havelock North Primary School, in Hawke’s Bay. I would like to acknowledge Mark and Chris de Lacy for their enthusiastic presentations, Evan Mackay for his years of dedication and organisation, and our generous long-term supporters for this important programme. These supporters include Kilwell Sports, New Zealand Fishing News, Profile Boats, Black Magic Tackle, The Big Fish, and the Guardians of the Sea Charitable Trust. Collectively we have invested more than $300,000 in this project to teach kids how to fish for the future and stay safe around the water. The Fisheries Management Marine Protection team, ably led by Chairman Peter Campbell, has kept us well informed on the many processes we are engaged with. At just over $2.00 per affiliated member we can rest assured our investment into this aspect of Council business is being well utilised. Together with the growing number of LegaSea Legends who are stepping up alongside us we are delivering on our promise of taking a constructive, practical and proactive approach to fisheries management, while offering logical and positive solutions to rebuild our fisheries and restore marine productivity. The Communications sub-committee has delivered on their promise to deliver an E-zine publication dedicated to sportfishing club members. The latest issues of Hooked Up have been a pleasure to read. Your efforts are appreciated team. I want to take this opportunity to thank both Warren (Wazza) Harris and Kelvin Mowat for their many years of service and commitment to the NZSFC Board. They have been a pleasure to work with and I would like you all to join me in wishing them the best of days fishing which will invariably be sunny and calm on days otherwise scheduled for Board meetings.

LEGASEA REPORT 2016 SCOTT MACINDOE

TITLE

LegaSea is a public outreach initiative of the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council. LegaSea raises funds and provides public friendly information about a variety of processes that are important to restoring abundance in our fisheries, to enhance the recreational fishing experience and for the benefit of future generations. GOVERNANCE The Governance Advisory Sub-committee oversees LegaSea’s operations. This Subcommittee includes both LegaSea Directors, Mark Connor and Peter Campbell, and Board members Richard Baker, Kelvin Mowat and Scott Macindoe. FINANCES IRD has approved a change to our financial end of year date. It is now 30th June, aligned with NZSFC’s end of year date. Annual Financial accounts have been completed and filed with our Auditors as of 14th August. Each month 100 percent of public donations made through the LegaSea Legends programme are transferred to the NZSFC and applied to the work streams of Advocacy, Research, Education and Alignment (working with others). As at 30th June 2016 we have secured over 650 LegaSea Legends committed to investing $10 per month. These people make such a difference. Si Yates’ dedication has seen our Partner Programme grow from small beginnings to where we now have three Platinum and over 30 Gold partner brands on board and committed to supporting LegaSea. Other fundraising products include Building LegaSea and LegaSea Works. Over the next twelve months there will be a strong focus on grant seeking from charitable trusts. Sam Woolford has come aboard to focus on this aspect of fundraising. He has a background in business and financial management so adds strength to our team. WHAT’S FISHING WORTH? CAMPAIGN In August 2015 LegaSea launched the What’s Fishing Worth? fundraising campaign to support the study into valuing recreational fishing’s contribution to the economy. LegaSea used three channels to raise money: public donations, contributions from vested interests and grant applications. Our target was $100,000 from public donations and an equivalent sum from vested interests. We failed to reach these targets. We are however very grateful to the businesses that supported the research project and the 689 2017

individuals who donated almost $53,000 during our Givealittle campaign. A more comprehensive report of the research project is provided elsewhere in this document. NEW ZEALAND FISHERIES SYMPOSIUM 2016 In April LegaSea and the NZSFC hosted around 100 people over three days at the inaugural New Zealand Fisheries Symposium. Attendees included a mix of politicians, recreational marine and fresh water advocates, and media personalities. The event was an excellent networking and alignment opportunity for our team. It also showcased our potential for bringing an eclectic group of people together to discuss their joint interests in the marine environment. The ending resolution of the Symposium was to rebuild our inshore fish stocks. EDUCATION AND PUBLIC AWARENESS LegaSea has presented at 80 events, attended by almost 49,000 people, in the past 12 months. We are grateful to Pieter Battaerd who manages our volunteer team. Thanks to their efforts LegaSea continues to present a professional face and meaningful message to a range of audiences. The Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show is a LegaSea Gold partner. Their annual Auckland event is our opportunity to showcase LegaSea to the recreational fishing and boating industry, and build public awareness. LegaSea continues to receive requests for columns, including opinion pieces and updates, from a variety of publications. Over the past year LegaSea has produced at least 97 columns, increased coverage of fisheries issues and seabird awareness in mainstream media, and more than doubled our digital reach using a variety of social media channels. ENTHUSIASTIC EFFORT Results this past year have been mixed, however the team’s enthusiasm and commitment is a constant reminder that recreational fishing is a fundamental part of our Kiwi lifestyle. The LegaSea team is privileged to be serving the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council of clubs, affiliated members and the wider public’s interests in having more abundant fisheries and a productive marine environment.

NZSFC SIMRAD ITM NATIONALS: 18TH – 25TH FEBRUARY 2017 Please note the following rule changes for the 2017 SIMRAD ITM Nationals Minimum weights were adopted for Yellowfin Tuna, Mahimahi and Albacore for the Nationals. • For Yellowfin Tuna the minimum weight is 15kg on line weights 15kg and above. On line weights 10kg and below, the fish must be equal to or exceed line weight • For Mahimahi the minimum weight is 4kg on line weights 15kg and above. On line weights 10kg and below, there is no minimum fish weight. • For Albacore on Line weights 1, 2 & 3 kg, fish must equal or exceed 1 kg. On line weights, 4, 6, 8, 10 kg, fish must equal or exceed 2 kg. • Section 16 for all species – “must equal or exceed” has replaced “exceed” for all species. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE The New Zealand “SIMRAD ITM Nationals” shall form the arena in which anglers from throughout New Zealand compete, club against club, team against team and angler against angler for the honour of winning various trophies and titles that have been offered for this tournament. The ‘Council’ will determine the rules and conditions that will apply to this tournament. The ‘Council’ will determine the dates and hours of fishing the tournament. In addition to these above rules, the following will also apply: 1. The IGFA and the NZSFC angling and fishing regulations are incorporated as tournament rules, and will be adhered to as if fishing for a record. These rules have been evolved internationally so that, in their observances, every fish should have a sporting chance. Captures in which the fish has not had a chance to fight, except on the gaff rope or in the boats, are not caught within the intention of these rules and do not reflect credit on the fish or fisherman. Only fish caught in accordance with these and IGFA angling and fishing regulations and within the intent of these rules will qualify. 2. All current New Zealand Laws and Regulations regarding the taking of fish in New Zealand territorial waters.

38

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

The New Zealand Sport Fishing Council reserves the right to use any information received by it through results sheets of the SIMRAD ITM NATIONAL TOURNAMENT for publicity, statistical, or other purposes that may be beneficial to the Council or its membership. 1. JUDICIAL COMMITTEE A Judicial committee will be appointed. The Judicial Committee’s decisions shall be final on all matters pertaining to the contest, and any controversy arising over interpretation of these rules. Any dispute relating to the weight of a fish must be lodged with the weighmaster prior to the fish being removed from the weigh station. All other disputes must be lodged in writing, and faxed to the tournament secretary on the day in which the dispute relates. 2. SAFETY Although the Tournament has been arranged for 8 days it is the skipper’s responsibility to determine that on any one day, the sea conditions and weather forecasts are safe for his/her boat to put to sea. The Tournament is being run nationwide and the fact that boats may be fishing in one area, is not to be taken as an indicator that it is safe to fish in any other area. It is each Skipper’s responsibility to ensure that the boat they intend to participate in is capable of putting to sea safely. It is the Skipper’s responsibility to ensure that the boat carries minimum legal safety equipment and inflation aids, including the requirements of local Coastguard/Harbour Board, or any other local body that has assumed control over the waterways and ocean that the team intend to fish in. Each boat must have a reliable means of communication, with the expectation that they can make contact, or be contacted at all times. Each Boat must return to port, or report to their base each day. Any club who is made aware of a Skipper who has put to sea against the advice or directions of one of the authorities named above, or who has not met minimum safety requirements in equipment must report the matter to the Tournament Secretary, and the Judicial Committee will consider the complaint and can disqualify the team. Any such disqualification will also disqualify any catches previously weighed by that team for the Tournament. 2017


Land Based, Kayak, and personal Watercraft teams will suffer the same penalties if they are found to have ignored advice from officers of surf life saving clubs operating in the area. 3. INFRACTIONS Any person, club, boat skipper or crew, guilty of infraction of the rules could be disqualified from participation in this or any other NZ Sport Fishing Council contest. 4 ELIGIBILITY AND CONDITIONS OF ENTRY All team members must be financial members of an affiliated club. All clubs being represented in the SIMRAD ITM National Tournament must be affiliated to, and be financial members of the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council Inc. For the Club to be considered financial their fees must be paid and in the NZSFC account prior to the Tournament commencing. Junior anglers must be under the age of 17 years at the conclusion of the tournament. All teams must have access to a copy of the rules for the SIMRAD ITM National Tournament. All teams must nominate a member who will be responsible for the receiving of information for that team, and for certifying that the above conditions have been met. All information given to the nominated member shall be deemed to have been given to the whole team. A signed entry form, accompanied by the appropriate entry fees for the whole team must be lodged with the club the team is fishing for, before an entry is valid. 5 REGISTRATION A registration fee of $25 per angler (inclusive of GST) must accompany the official entry form and be paid to the club the angler is representing. All teams must register at the headquarters of the club they are going to represent in the tournament. Correct registration is the team’s responsibility through their nominated member. All team members must be registered and registration fees paid before they commence fishing. New teams, and additional team members can register after the tournament has started but registrations must be completed and registration fees paid and the Tournament Secretary notified before they commence fishing.

When members of unincorporated clubs are entering the SIMRAD ITM Nationals and fishing for Council trophies they must prove they are a separate club in their own right and not part of another club, as indicated in the Bylaws. 6 CLUB RESPONSIBILITIES All participating clubs must have a nominated recorder, who will be the official contact for the Tournament Secretary for all matters relating to the tournament. For the 2017 Nationals the preferred method of receiving and transmitting results will be by email. Council would expect all clubs to make a serious attempt to comply with this preference. However, it is recognised that some clubs may not be able to comply, and for these clubs a fax link will be maintained. Those clubs that are forced to use the fax link must inform the secretary early. All participating clubs must have an email address/facsimile machine to receive and transmit results and other information between the club and tournament secretary. All catches must be relayed to the tournament secretary on the day the fish is weighed or tagged. A day being 6 pm to 6 pm (see rule 9). Daily catch results must be transmitted to the Tournament Secretary not later than 7.30 pm each day and be certified as true and correct. (Certifying will eliminate the need to send catch certificates in) Nil returns are just as important as positive returns! Final catch results must reach the Tournament Secretary prior to 8 pm on the last fishing day of the tournament. The results for Day 8 will be sent as Day 8’s results but Recorders and Anglers will have 24 hours to check that all fish have been entered and recorded correctly. Tagged fish must be reported as soon as possible after the fish has been tagged but must not be notified to the Tournament Secretary until such times as the card has been sighted electronically or physically by the Club the team is fishing for unless prior arrangements have been made. All tagged fish must be reported by 8 pm on the final day. All affiliated clubs must provide courtesy weighing and email/fax reporting to all anglers fishing in the tournament in line with Rule 13. Clubs who have teams fishing away from their home base should make every effort to make sure they are aware of their obligations under Rule 13. Clubs must provide competent weighmasters to officiate during the clubs weighing times.

Clubs should hold a pre-tournament briefing to make teams aware of their responsibilities as regards all aspects of the tournament – Local Coastguard/Harbour rules, radio frequencies and weighstation times. Clubs must have available copies of the Council booklet for teams to purchase or copies of the rules so there is no excuse for teams to be ignorant of the rules. 7 TEAMS Teams will be identified by a team name as well as a team number. The Council will, through the clubs, allocate the team number. All members of the team must fish for the same club, and at least one member of the team must belong to the club they are fishing for. A team must comprise not less than two (2) and not more than ten (10) persons. There must not be less than two members of the same team on the boat at any one time and in the interests of safety at least one person on the boat should be over the age of 18 years. If for any reason the responsible member is changed, the tournament secretary must be notified as soon as possible. MORE THAN ONE team may fish off the same boat, but all teams must be fishing the SIMRAD ITM Nationals tournament. Teams may change boats during the tournament, but must retain the same team name and number. At any one time, all members of the team who are fishing must be on the same boat. No substitute of a team may be made after registration without the consent of the tournament secretary (generally it should not be expected to have substitutes approved after the tournament has commenced). In the case of land based anglers, at any one time, all members of the team who are fishing must, be on a stretch of uninterrupted foreshore, must be in sight of one another, and without the use of aids, be close enough together to be able to call to one another. Or if fishing from a structure, (such as a wharf or jetty) all members must fish from the structure. In the case of Kayak and Watercraft anglers, at any one time, all members of the team who are fishing must be in sight of one another, and without the use of aids, be close enough together to be able to call to one another. They must have all prescribed safety equipment deemed appropriate for Kayak and Watercraft users. As per team numbers rule, minimum of two anglers (that may fish on one kayak or watercraft, or 40

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

individual watercrafts) and no more than 10 anglers allowed. With the exception of the rule regarding the catching of bait, only team members may fish from the boat during the tournament, and only team members may catch any of the fish as listed under Rule 15 Species. Guests, spectators and crew on the boat who are not team members may assist with the boating of tournament fish. When no game fishing tackle is in the water they may assist with the catching of baitfish, but may not catch any of the tournament species. Fish should be weighed from the boat they were caught from, whether on their boat trailer or in the water. Fish can’t be transferred to another boat any time for the purpose of weighing the catch except in exceptional circumstances. The only exceptions are if the angler or anglers as a team are changing boat because of availability, or in an emergency ie a breakdown. In both these situations their catch when weighed will have to be ratified by the disputes committee. This rule does not apply to Land based Anglers. Catch cards for weighed fish and Tag cards for tagged fish should also be handed in or reported from the boat the team is fishing from by a representative of the team. It is the team’s responsibility to make themselves familiar with the rules. Teams will nominate a responsible member on the registration form. Any official information given to the responsible member shall be deemed to have been given to the whole team. 8 ANGLERS Anglers may change teams, but must not start fishing from the new team until the tournament secretary has been notified of the change. Anglers who change teams shall leave all team points behind, but will take individual points with them. 9 FISHING DAYS AND TIMES The tournament will run for eight days, finishing on the last Saturday in February. Teams can start fishing at 8 am. Recorders should ensure that all catch cards have been sighted by a weighmaster or recorder by 6 pm on the final day. There is no lines out of the water time, an angler may fish until such time as they believe that if they land a fish they can have their catch card for weighed fish sighted by a weighmaster of the club weighing the fish by 6pm on the final day.

2017


Tag cards must be sighted either physically or electronically by the Club the team is fishing for by 6 pm on the final day. There is no playing out of fish after 6pm on the final day. All fish must be reported by the Club the team is fishing for by 8 pm. 10 AREA The tournament will be fished in that area of water bounded by a line 200 miles from New Zealand’s two main islands. The provisions of Rule 14 reporting of catches, Rule 11 Weighing, and Rule 2 Safety, must be adhered to. 11 WEIGHING All fish must be weighed at the official weigh stations for the tournament ie Weigh stations are as listed in the front of the yearbook, plus any others notified to the Tournament Secretary prior to the Tournament. All fish must be weighed within 36 hours of being caught. Weighmasters have the right to inspect any gear on the boat at any time of weighing. The Council strongly recommends that circle hooks be used when live baiting for any species during the National tournament. 12 FORMULA BASIS The formula is the weight of the fish times 100 divided by the line weight for weighed fish, and for tagged and released Blue & Black Marlin, Broadbill, Striped Marlin, Spearfish, Shark, Tuna & Yellowtail points will be Blue & Black Marlin, Broadbill & Striped Marlin 450 points; Spearfish 100 points; Shark 100 points; Tuna (Yellowfin & Bigeye only) 60 points; and Yellowtail 25 points. These tag and release points are regardless of line weight (but must be within the line weights referred to in 15. Species Section 1).

rules and conditions. ALL PARTICIPATING ANGLERS WISHING TO USE THE COURTESY WEIGH FACILITY OF ANOTHER CLUB MUST INFORM THE HOST CLUB AS SOON AS SUCH A REQUIREMENT BECOMES APPARENT. Any team intending fishing away from their home base and intending to use courtesy weigh facilities must inform prospective hosts in advance and make their intentions known. Weigh sheets used for courtesy weighing must be from the club providing the courtesy weigh. Two forms must be filled in, prior to weighing of the fish. One weigh sheet is for the club providing the courtesy weigh, and the other is for the angler to take back to their club for their records. This is the angler’s responsibility. If the words > courtesy, consideration, and common sense < are kept to the fore courtesy weighing should not present a problem 14 REPORTING OF CATCHES All fish must be reported as soon as possible after being boated, to the weigh station or club where the fish is expected to be weighed, giving the following details: Angler, Team Number, Team Name, Species and the time boated. All fish tagged and released must be reported as soon as possible after the release but must not be reported to the Tournament Secretary until such time as the Tag card has been sighted either physically or electronically by the Club the team is fishing for.

13 COURTESY WEIGHING All clubs must provide courtesy weighs for all anglers fishing the nationals. They must also provide recording and reporting of catches to the club the angler is fishing for in the tournament. (The general rule should be that visiting anglers should have available to them, the same hours of weighing and reporting services, as a local angler). All participating anglers wishing to use the courtesy weigh facility of another club must abide by the rules and conditions for weighing at the host club as though they were a member of that club. It is the visiting team’s responsibility to ensure that their team is familiar with any such

SECTION 16 LENGTH SECTION The winner will be the angler with the longest fish in each of the following species: Albacore, Kahawai, Snapper, Skipjack, Trevally & Yellowtail •

Fish in this section will remain in this section only.

Fish must be released so they can’t be kept and weighed in for another section in the Nationals.

Anglers enter their own catches on line at www.fishingcomp.co.nz/Nationals

Any fish that qualifies as a NZ Record will be added to the NZ Record section and if the angler is already entered in the NZ Fishing Competition then their entry will also be transferred to that competition.

SECTION 13 VARTA CUP Will be awarded to the overall Club scoring the most points. Only the top 3 scoring fish will count. REGIONAL SECTION Clubs will be split into regional winners and certificates will be awarded for first placings. Zones can purchase their own trophies to present if they wish. SECTION 14 TOP TEAM FROM EACH CLUB Will be awarded to the team with the most points from the top scoring fish from each of the 13 species.

NOTES FOR RECORDERS – NUMBER ONE RULE: PLEASE READ THE RULES No Braid to be used in this event apart from Section 15. (Braid includes any gel spun polyethylene and includes Spectra – but it does not include Dacron) 1.

All Clubs must appoint a Recorder who is willing to check the results each evening – especially those clubs with anglers fishing away from home

2.

‘Entry Numbers’ and a ‘Team Details Form’ along with a ‘Results Schedule Form’ will be sent to each Club prior to the contest. You will need a Results Schedule form for each of the days.

3.

Please remember that Teams must register with the Club they will represent. If they intend to fish from another Club they must still register with their own Club. Each Club will forward the results for the Teams fishing for them.

4.

The Team Details sheet needs to be emailed/ faxed to the Tournament Secretary as soon as details are to hand. Results must be sent on the day the fish are weighed. Results for Tagged fish should be sent when the card has been sighted either electronically or physically by the Club the team is fishing for unless prior arrangements have been made.

5.

The Daily Results Schedule needs to be emailed/faxed to the Tournament Secretary prior to 7.30 pm each evening. All fish weighed, and tag cards sighted (physically or electronically) that day must be written on this sheet. Results after 7.30 pm will go into the next day’s tally (except on the final night of course). A ‘Nil’ return by phone, email or

fax speeds up the results – very necessary on the final night. 6.

Result Sheets are certified correct by the Recorder, it is therefore important that the Recorders check all results as they come out each night. All Tag cards must be sighted by the Club the team is fishing for and reported only when they have been sighted.

7.

Teams and anglers can be added at any stage during the contest. Please ensure the ‘extras’ are emailed/faxed to the Tournament Secretary on a Team Details Sheet – please send the ‘additions’ only or mark very clearly where the additional teams and anglers start.

8.

To make life simple if you have any further entries, additions to teams, or other queries it would be appreciated if these were dealt with during the day to leave the evening free for results to be processed.

9.

Entry forms and ONE cheque from each Club should be posted to the Secretary, NZSFC, PO Box 207 012, Hunua 2254, as soon as possible after the end of the contest or when ALL entries are to hand.

10. Recorders and Anglers have 24 hours after the Tournament finishes to check that all their fish have been entered and are correct.

Please deduct $6 per angler before sending your cheque for your total entries

62

WEIGHING OF FISH: 1.

All fish must be weighed by the person/s nominated by the club as the weighmaster of the club or on scales for which a current certification of accuracy is available. All fish must be weighed ashore.

2.

The scales used must be tested annually for accuracy by a Government agency, or other qualified and accredited organisations. A copy of the test certificate must be forwarded to the Secretary of the NZSFC before January 1 of each season.

3.

Only weights indicated by the graduations on the scale will be accepted. Any weights that fall between two graduations on the scale must be rounded to the lower of the two.

4.

Clubs should set their own rules to cover the trucking of fish to weigh stations within their own recognised waters.

IGFA & NZSFC RULES 1.

When clubs are conducting their own tournaments â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and visiting clubs are involved, they must make their own rules of entry.

2.

When members of unincorporated clubs are entering the Nationals and fishing for Council trophies they must prove they are a separate club in their own right and not part of another club.

3.

Clubs may conduct fishing tournaments for sustenance reasons without complying with IGFA and NZSFC fishing rules and regulations (Section 7.5 of the constitution refers). Fish caught for these reasons will not qualify for any present Council awards or prizes.

IGFA & NZSFC RULES FOR TAG & RELEASE: Fish are tagged for the purpose of research 1.

TIPPET CLASSES RECOGNISED BY NZSFC: 1 kg, 2 kg, 3 kg, 4 kg, 6 kg, 8 kg, 10 kg

Only fish tagged with tags supplied or approved by Council will be recognised.

2.

CATCH SUMMARY SHEETS: These must be completed and sent to the Council Secretary on a regular basis. They should include all fish weighed by the Club and all Tag Cards handled by the Club.

Tag cards should be handed in as soon as possible after the fish are tagged

3.

That 2.4384 metres (8 ft) be the maximum overall length of Tag Poles

4.

The Pole must be kept in hand at all times.

5.

Any fish tagged while still in the water should be alongside the boat and under control so the tag can be placed correctly.

6.

The IGFA Statement says: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Captures in which the fish has not fought or has not had a chance to fight do not reflect credit on the

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

2017


fisherman, and only the angler can properly evaluate the degree of achievement in establishing the record’. This should be kept in mind. 7.

8.

When billfish or sharks have been tagged they are not to be intentionally removed from the water before they are released. The council strongly recommends that circle hooks be used when live baiting for any species. This will give a fish a better chance of survival when tagged & released

4.

The recognition of the angler weighing this fish is at the discretion of the angler’s club.

5.

Courtesy weighs must be used where practical to ensure fish are recorded to the weigh stations within the area of catch.

PERMANENT WEIGH STATIONS: (As included with Club information earlier in the booklet) DEFINITION OF WHEN A FISH IS CAUGHT: 1.

hen landing or boating a fish the leader, if W used, should be in hand before it is gaffed. The catch will not be deemed caught until the fish is weighed. The intention is that all angling regulations & rules including equipment used to entice, hook, fight, land and secure the catch must comply with all IGFA International Angling Rules & NZSFC fishing rules & bylaws until the fish has been weighed. Once a fish is gaffed it cannot be tagged and released.

2.

In the event of a fish being tagged for releasing the leader should be in hand when the tag is inserted into the fish. When the tag is inserted the catch is deemed complete. The leader then can be intentionally cut as close to the fish as possible, or the hooks removed, or the fish releases itself. Catch time is deemed the reported time of hook up, subject to verification of weighing or releasing requirements.

3.

In the event of a fish being released without tagging the fish is deemed caught and released when the leader is in hand and the leader is intentionally cut as close to the fish as possible, or the hook is removed. If a catch escapes before gaffing, tagging or deliberately releasing, the fish is considered a free swimming fish and will not be considered as a catch. A fish that has been tagged and the leader in hand still uncut and attached to the fish, may be gaffed and weighed if the angler considers that it is unlikely to survive or for any other reason. The tag must remain in the fish until it is weighed and then removed and returned to the tag card.

4.

When fly fishing it is not necessary to have the leader in hand. When a fish is released without tagging the fish should be within tagging or gaffing distance when released

COURTESY WEIGHING: 1.

2.

All clubs are required to courtesy weigh fish (at no charge) for anglers of affiliated clubs within the recognised hours of the weigh station’s operation of the club. A fee may only be charged to non-affiliated fishers requesting a courtesy weigh. Clubs intending to charge for courtesy weighs for non-affiliates must advise Council of their intention and the fee to be charged at the beginning of the season. Anglers requiring a courtesy weigh or courtesy Tag & Release must present two completed weigh sheets /catch cards (either on sheets / cards from the club providing the courtesy weigh, or their own club’s sheets / cards), to the weighmaster, prior to the fish being weighed. For Tag & Release, the weighmaster shall sight and check the completed Tag Card. The weighmaster shall retain / forward the Tag. All club weigh sheets/catch cards shall have three additional tick boxes easily distinguishable near the particular Club’s heading.

a. Courtesy Weigh – non-member

b. Copy

c. Courtesy Weigh - NZSFC Affiliated Member. There shall be a line beside this box (suitably headed) to record the fisher’s Club and Membership No

3.

When a fish is courtesy weighed the fish will be accredited for statistical purposes to the member club actually weighing the fish or accepting the tag card. a. An inland club can negotiate with a coastal club to use their facilities as a satellite weigh station. This must be notified to the NZSFC Secretary. The tally goes to the inland club and the coastal club must be aware they can’t count them in their own tally as well.

TITLE REPORT 2015-16 FISHERIES MANAGEMENT Fisheries Management – Marine Protection sub-committee INTRODUCTION Your Fisheries Management - Marine Protection (FMMP) Sub-Committee provided comprehensive responses to several major reviews in the past twelve months. It is important that recreational fishers are well represented in Ministry, Council and Government led processes. The time and resources required this year to be part of the Snapper 1 Strategic Working Group and the Hauraki Gulf Sea Change Spatial Planning Group have been significant. The undoubted highlight of the year was the New Zealand Fisheries Symposium hosted by the Council and LegaSea, north of Auckland, during April. The topic was ‘Defining The Economy of Abundance’ and it was a chance to think proactively about a new vision for inshore fisheries use. We need a change from

the current paradigm of depletion that leads to poor commercial returns. Having abundant fisheries is the key to our future fishing interests and potentially our nation’s next growth cycle. The purpose for the Symposium was to define goals and policy settings that deliver much greater benefits to New Zealand from our inshore fisheries. Over one hundred invited guests heard presentations from three international experts, Rob Southwick and Professors Daniel Pauly and Evelyn Pinkerton. Rob Southwick launched the results from the research estimating recreational fishing’s contribution to the New Zealand economy. Recreational fishing is a billion dollar industry in New Zealand with important social and

cultural significance as well. NZSFC and LegaSea supporters have funded the bulk of this work and the FMMP sub-committee look forward to including these results in future submissions.

This cost is never accounted for, and Ministers are not advised of the lost economic opportunities from simply retaining the status quo and assuming that exporting fish is the best use of such a limited resource.

FISHERIES SYSTEM REVIEW After meeting with Ministry officials in late 2015 we submitted a range of legislative, administrative and management solutions to restore abundance, productivity and diversity in our inshore fisheries and marine environment. These solutions were presented in a joint submission from NZSFC and the New Zealand Angling and Casting Association, in December 2015. MPI advise they are still summarising the submissions received. In an interesting twist, the Operations division of MPI submitted its own response to the system review. NZSFC has requested a copy of that submission but we are unsure when it will be made publicly available. MARINE PROTECTED AREAS (MPA) STRATEGY Four types of marine protected areas were proposed in a government consultation document issued in January. That document, A New Marine Protected Areas Act, proposed to repeal the existing Marine Reserves Act and create three new categories of protection: species sanctuaries, seabed reserves and recreational fishing parks, one for the inner Hauraki Gulf, and another for the Marlborough Sounds. NZSFC submitted in support of a more integrated approach to marine protection in preference to ad hoc proposals that do not consider catch reductions, impacts of displaced fishing effort, and existing uses of marine space. We stressed that fisheries issues must be addressed under the Fisheries Act 1996. A draft MPA Bill is expected from Environment Minister Nick Smith by the end of 2016. Recreational fishing parks may not be established under the MPA legislation, but the Bill may propose gateway legislation that will allow a process to be initiated under the Fisheries Act. We remain committed to the goal of rebuilding our depleted fisheries to abundant levels, a minimum of 40% of unfished biomass (B40). We can achieve B40 by better managing land run-off, reducing catches, and changing harvesting methods for some species. No-take zones may then be applied to protect specific species or threatened habitats. We advocate that abundance is the most effective defence for biodiversity.

YELLOWTAIL KINGFISH Sustainability of the kingfish fishery in northeastern New Zealand is monitored by sampling the recreational catch. In 2014/15 experienced fishers, mostly charter boat skippers, measured all the kingfish they caught. Some kingfish heads were kept for ageing. The inshore Northland/Hauraki Gulf was dominated by five-year old kingfish (38% of the sample), while inshore Bay of Plenty/East Cape had the highest proportion of six year olds (22%). Remote offshore locations had a broader spread of ages so there is lower overall fishing mortality. This sampling and ageing project was funded by MPI and undertaken by Blue Water Marine Research and NIWA. NZSFC supports this kingfish monitoring work in its Yellowtail Kingfish Policy, which was adopted at the Christchurch AGM in 2015. It is important to maintain our world-class recreational kingfish fishery for its contribution to New Zealandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social economic and cultural wellbeing. In 2014 the recreational kingfish fishery generated $134 million in economic activity, contributing $51 million to GDP and supporting 630 full time jobs. HIGHLY MIGRATORY SPECIES (HMS) New Zealand and other South Pacific island nations have an important role in the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission, which is charged with international management of the main tuna and billfish species in the region. Progress on tuna management has been painfully slow with an urgent need for commercial catch reductions of Pacific bluefin tuna and bigeye tuna, and caps on the commercial catch of yellowfin and albacore. Prior to the 2015-16 gamefish season in New Zealand we were promised a strong El Nino with consistent westerly winds. This never really eventuated with a warmish and very productive season. It was great to see the continued recovery of the yellowfin fishery in New Zealand waters, with more fish in the 20 to 30 kg range than we have had since 2005. There were some very impressive tuna landed at the weigh stations up and down the country too.

2017


Striped marlin were also around in good numbers, at times. Marlin fishing on the west coast, from Ahipara to New Plymouth was very productive this past season. Numbers of marlin tagged and released was up in 2015-16. There have been seven striped marlin recaptures, including a fish that was tagged the previous season off Whangamata. It was recaptured near the Alderman Islands on February 12th 2016, after 392 days. A summary of all the results from the gamefish tagging programme from 1975 to 2014 has been published by MPI and is available on the NZSFC web site. www.nzsportfishing.org.nz - Gamefish tagging report April 2016

CONCLUSION This was an intense year producing mixed results. In the next few months we expect to see outputs from several long-term projects including the fisheries system review, MPA legislation and the Snapper 1 Management Plan. As we lead into the 2017 election we intend to step up our contact with political representatives to ensure they understand and support the need for more abundant fisheries that will enhance our fishing experience, our regional communities and the national economy. A highly attractive proposition you would think, for us and any aspiring politician.

SNAPPER 1 MANAGEMENT PLAN NZSFC representatives contributed the majority of feedback to the Strategy Group as a Snapper 1 management plan was developed between February 2014 and December 2015. Our team attended 25 meetings alongside commercial and customary interests. The Plan was submitted to the Minister for his approval in February 2016. As of the end of June no formal response had been received.

Ref no: 39950NP Size range: 8/0 - 16/0 Designed for Game fish

A hook that penetrates through the side of a fishing mouth allowing it to be released has to be better for the future of our fishing. Mustad Perfect Circle Hooks are the only circle hooks with Precision Proportions. This revolutionary design aspect means the point angle and length, gap, front length and all other parameters have the same proportions across the entire size range for maximum effectiveness.

IGFA & NZSFC FISHING RULES & ANGLING REGULATIONS The following angling rules have been formulated by the International Game Fish Association to promote ethical and sporting angling practices, to establish uniform regulations for the compilation of world game fish records, and to provide basic angling guidelines for use in fishing tournaments and any other group angling activities.

RULES FOR FISHING IN FRESH AND SALT WATER (Also see Rules for Fly-fishing)

The word “angling” is defined as catching or attempting to catch fish with a rod, reel, line, and hook, as outlined in the international angling rules. There are some aspects of angling that cannot be controlled through rule making, however. Angling regulations cannot ensure an outstanding performance from each fish, and world records cannot indicate the amount of difficulty in catching the fish. Captures in which the fish has not fought or has not had a chance to fight do not reflect credit on the fisherman, and only the angler can properly evaluate the degree of achievement in establishing the record.

2.

Only fish caught in accordance with IGFA international angling rules, and within the intent of these rules, will be considered for world records. As these IGFA fishing regulations are for world record claims, these rules have been extended by the NZSFC for better understanding to enable them to be more suited for club trophies and tournaments. Any club who is considering running a fishing tournament with high value prizes should extend these fishing rules further to cover any circumstances pertaining to their club and sponsor’s requirements. These game fishing regulations must be used for NZSFC National Record Claims. These game fishing regulations must be used in the Annual NZSFC National Fishing Tournament. Any Club or organization using these Game Fishing Regulations do so at their own risk. The NZSFC does not accept any responsibility in the use of these game fishing regulations in any other Tournaments. Following are the rules for freshwater and saltwater fishing and a separate set of rules for fly-fishing.

Equipment Regulations A. LINE 1. Monofilament, multifilament, and lead core multifilament lines may be used. For line classes, see World Record Requirements. Wire lines are prohibited.

B. LINE BACKING 1. Backing not attached to the fishing line is permissible with no restrictions as to size or material. 2.

If the fishing line is attached to the backing, the catch shall be classified under the heavier of the two lines. The backing may not exceed the 130-lb (60-kg) line class and must be of a type of line approved for use in these angling rules.

C.DOUBLE LINE The use of a double line is not required. If one is used, it must meet the following specifications: 1.

A double line must consist of the actual line used to catch the fish.

2.

Double lines are measured from the start of the knot, braid, roll or splice making the double to the farthermost end of the knot, splice, snap, swivel or other device used for securing the trace, leader, lure or hook to the double line.

Saltwater species: In all line classes up to and including 20 lb (10 kg), the double line shall be limited to 15 feet (4.57 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall not exceed 20 feet (6.1 meters). The double line on all classes of tackle over 20 lb (10 kg) shall be limited to 30 feet (9.14 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall not exceed 40 feet (12.19 meters). Freshwater species: The double line on all classes of tackle shall not exceed 6 feet (1.82 meters). The combined length of the double line and the leader shall not exceed 10 feet (3.04 meters). D. LEADER The use of a leader is not required. If one is used, it must meet the following specifications: The length of the leader is the overall length including any lure, hook arrangement or other device, and is measured to the bend of the last hook. The leader must be connected to the line

with a snap, knot, splice, swivel or other device. Holding devices are prohibited. There are no regulations regarding the material or strength of the leader. Saltwater species: In all line classes up to and including 20 lb (10 kg), the leader shall be limited to 15 feet (4.57 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall not exceed 20 feet (6.1 meters). The leader on all classes of tackle over 20 lb (10 kg) shall be limited to 30 feet (9.14 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall be limited to 40 feet (12.19 meters). Freshwater species: The leader on all classes of tackle shall be limited to 6 feet (1.82 meters). The combined length of the double line and leader shall not exceed 10 feet (3.04 meters). E. ROD 1. Rods must comply with sporting ethics and customs. Considerable latitude is allowed in the choice of a rod, but rods giving the angler an unfair advantage will be disqualified. This rule is intended to eliminate the use of unconventional rods. 2.

The rod tip must be a minimum of 40 inches (101.6 cm) in length. The rod butt cannot exceed 27 inches (68.58 cm) in length. These measurements must be made from a point directly beneath the center of the reel. A curved butt is measured in a straight line. When the rod butt is placed in a gimbal, the measurement from the centre of the reel seat to the pivot point of the gimbal can be no more than 27 inches. (The above measurements do not apply to surf casting rods).

2017

F. REEL 1. Reels must comply with sporting ethics and customs. 2.

Power driven reels of any kind are prohibited. This includes motor, hydraulic, or electrically driven reels, and any device which gives the angler an unfair advantage.

3.

Ratchet handle reels are prohibited.

4.

Reels designed to be cranked with both hands at the same time are prohibited.

G. HOOKS FOR BAIT FISHING 1. For live or dead bait fishing no more than two single hooks may be used. Both must be firmly imbedded in or securely attached to the bait. The eyes of the hooks must be no less than a hookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length (the length of the largest hook used) apart and no more than 18 inches (45.72 cm) apart. The only exception is that the point of one hook may be passed through the eye of the other hook. A hook may not precede bait, lure or bait/lure combo by more than one hookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length. 2.

The use of a dangling or swinging hook is prohibited. Double or treble hooks are prohibited.

3.

A two-hook rig for bottom fishing is acceptable if it consists of two single hooks on separate leaders or drops. Both hooks must be imbedded in the respective baits and separated sufficiently so that a fish caught on one hook cannot be foul-hooked by the other.

4.

A photograph or sketch of the hook arrangement must accompany all record applications made for fish caught on twohook tackle.

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

105


detachable head to the other end. Only the effective length will be considered. If a fixed head gaff is used, the same limitations shall apply and the gaff rope shall be measured from the same location on the gaff hook. Only a single hook is permitted on any gaff. Choke ropes must not exceed 30 ft (9.14 meters) including the wire or chain on one end. Harpoon or lance attachments are prohibited. Tail ropes are limited to 30 feet (9.14 meters). (Once the catch is along side and under control and the crew are unable to lift the fish on board, an anchor rope or block and tackle may be attached to the tail or gaff rope to bring the catch on board as long as the crew can verify it was not used in the fight of the fish). (When fishing from a bridge, pier or other high platform or structure, this length limitation does not apply).

H. HOOKS AND LURES 1. When using an artificial lure with a skirt or trailing material, no more than two single hooks may be attached to the line, leader, or trace. The hooks need not be attached separately. The eyes of the hooks must be no less than an overall hook’s length (the overall length of the largest hook used) apart and no more than 12 inches (30.48 cm) apart. The only exception is that the point of one hook may be passed through the eye of the other hook. The trailing hook may not extend more than a hook’s length beyond the skirt of the lure. A hook may not precede bait, lure or bait/lure combo by more than one hook’s length. A photograph or sketch showing the hook arrangement must accompany a record application. 2.

3.

Gang hooks are permitted when attached to plugs and other artificial lures that are specifically designed for this use. Gang hooks must be free swinging and shall be limited to a maximum of three hooks (single, double, or treble, or a combination of any three). Baits may not be used with gang hooks. A photograph or sketch of the plug or lure must be submitted with record applications. Assist hooks or other such single hooks that are attached to a lure with a lead constructed of monofilament, multifilament, wire or other such material must conform to the following: When using assist hooks on any artificial lure, other than a skirted lure, the lead cannot be more than 1 ½ hook’s length and the bend of the hook may not be more than 4 inches (101 mm) whichever is less, from the closest point of attachment on the lure. Double and treble hooks may not be used as assist hooks.

I. OTHER EQUIPMENT 1. Fighting chairs may not have any mechanically propelled devices that aid the angler in fighting a fish. 2.

3.

106

Gimbals must be free swinging, which includes gimbals that swing in a vertical plane only. Any gimbal that allows the angler to reduce strain or to rest while fighting the fish is prohibited. Gaffs and nets used to boat or land a fish must not exceed 8 feet (2.44 meters) in overall length. In using a flying or detachable gaff the rope may not exceed 30 feet (9.14 meters). The gaff rope must be measured from the point where it is secured to the

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

4.

Entangling devices, either with or without a hook, are prohibited and may not be used for any purpose including baiting, hooking, fighting or landing the fish.

5.

Outriggers, downriggers, spreader bars and kites are permitted to be used provided that the actual fishing line is attached to the snap or other release device, either directly or with some other material. The leader or double line may not be connected to the release mechanism either directly or with the use of a connecting device. Spreader bars are also acceptable when used strictly as a teaser.

6.

Daisy chains, birds, floats and similar devices may only be used if they do not unfairly hamper or inhibit the normal swimming or fighting ability of the fish, thereby giving the angler or crew an unfair advantage in fighting, landing or boating the fish.

7.

A safety line may be attached to the rod, reel or harness provided that it does not in any way assist the angler in fighting the fish.

8.

Tag poles must be the same length as the Gaff i.e 8 feet (2.44 meters)

ANGLING REGULATIONS 1. From the time that a fish strikes or takes a bait or lure, the angler must hook, fight, and land or boat the fish without the aid of any other person, except as provided in these regulations. 2.

If a rod holder is used once the fish is hooked, the angler must remove the rod from the holder as quickly as possible. 2017


3.

In the event of a multiple strike on separate lines being fished by a single angler, only the first fish fought by the angler will be considered for a world record.

4.

If a double line is used, the intent of the regulations is that the fish will be fought on the single line most of the time that it takes to land the fish.

5.

Use of a rod belt or waist gimbal is permitted.

6.

When angling from a boat, once the leader is brought within the grasp of the mate, or the end of the leader is wound to the rod tip, more than one person is permitted to hold the leader.

The following situations will disqualify a catch: 1. When a rod breaks (while the fish is being played) in a manner that reduces the length of the tip below minimum dimensions or severely impairs its angling characteristics. 2.

Mutilation to the fish, prior to landing or boating the catch, caused by sharks, other fish, mammals, or propellers that remove or penetrate the flesh. (Injuries caused by leader or line, scratches, old healed scars or regeneration deformities are not considered to be disqualifying injuries). Any mutilation on the fish must be shown in a photograph and fully explained in a separate report accompanying the record application.

3.

When a fish is hooked or entangled on more than one line.

RULES FOR FLY FISHING Equipment Regulations A. LINE Any type of fly line and backing may be used. The breaking strength of the fly line and backing are not restricted. B.

108

LEADER Leaders must conform to generally accepted fly fishing customs. A leader includes a class tippet and, optionally, a shock tippet. A butt or taper section between the fly line and the class tippet shall also be considered part of the leader and there are no limits on its length, material, or strength. A class tippet must be made of nonmetallic material and either attached directly to the fly or to the shock tippet if one is used. The class tippet must be at least 15 inches (38.10 cm) long (measured inside connecting knots). With respect to knotless, tapered leaders, the terminal 15 inches (38.10 cm) will also determine tippet class. There is no maximum length limitation. A shock tippet, not to exceed 12 inches (30.48 cm) in length, may be added to the class tippet and tied to the lure. It can be made of any type of material, and there is no limit on its breaking strength. The shock tippet is measured from the eye of the hook to the single strand of class tippet and includes any knots used to connect the shock tippet to the class tippet. In the case of a tandem hook fly, the shock tippet shall be measured from the eye of the leading hook.

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

C.

ROD Regardless of material used or number of sections, rods must conform and cast according to generally accepted fly fishing customs and practices. A rod shall not measure less than 6 feet (1.82 meters) in overall length and any rod that gives the angler an unsporting advantage will be disqualified. Overall butt length may not exceed six inches when measured from the centre of the reel foot to the end of the butt. Overall butt length for two-handed or spey rods longer than 11 feet may not exceed 10 inches when measured from the centre of the reel foot to the end of the butt.

D.

REEL The reel must be designed expressly for fly fishing. There are no restrictions on gear ratio or type of drag employed except where the angler would gain an unfair advantage. Electric or electronically operated reels are prohibited.

E.

HOOKS A conventional fly may be dressed on a single or double hook or two single hooks in tandem. The second hook in any tandem fly must not extend beyond the wing material. The eyes of the hooks shall be no farther than 6 inches (15.24 cm) apart. Treble hooks are prohibited.

F.

FLIES The fly must be a recognized type of artificial fly, which includes streamer, bucktail, tube fly, wet fly, dry fly, nymph, popper and bug. The use of any other type of lure or natural or preserved bait, either singularly or attached to the fly, is expressly prohibited. Only a single fly is allowed. Dropper flies are prohibited. The fact that a lure can be cast with a fly rod is not evidence in itself that it fits the definition of a fly. The use of any lure designed to entangle or foul-hook a fish is prohibited. No scent, either natural or artificial is allowed on flies. The use of scented material in a fly is prohibited.

G. GAFFS & NETS Gaffs and nets used to boat or land a fish must not exceed 8 feet (2.44 meters) in overall length. (When fishing from a bridge, pier or other high stationary structure, this length limitation does not apply). The use of a flying gaff is not permitted. Only a single hook is permitted on any gaff. Harpoon or lance attachments are prohibited. A rope or any extension cannot be attached to the gaff.

2017


Angling Regulations 1. The angler must cast, hook, fight, and bring the fish to gaff or net unaided by any other person. No other person may touch any part of the tackle during the playing of the fish or give aid other than taking the leader for gaffing or netting purposes. Anyone assisting a shore-bound or wading angler must be within a rodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length of the angler before touching the leader or netting or gaffing the fish.

4.

Handlining or using a handline or rope attached in any manner to the anglerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line or leader for the purpose of holding or lifting the fish.

5.

Intentionally foul-hooking or snagging a fish.

6.

Shooting, harpooning, or lancing any fish (including sharks and halibut) at any stage of the catch.

7.

Chumming with the flesh, blood, skin or any part of mammals.

2.

8.

Using a boat or device to beach or drive a fish into shallow water in order to deprive the fish of its normal ability to swim.

9.

Attaching the anglerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line or leader to part of a boat or other object for the purpose of holding or lifting the fish.

3.

Casting and retrieving must be carried out in accordance with normal customs and generally accepted practices. The major criterion in casting is that the weight of the line must carry the fly rather than the weight of the fly carrying the line. Trolling a fly behind a moving water craft is not permitted. The craft must be completely out of gear both at the time the fly is presented to the fish and during the retrieve. The maximum amount of line that can be stripped off the reel is 120 feet (36.57 meters) from the fly. Once a fish is hooked, the tackle may not be altered in any way, with the exception of adding an extension butt. A harness cannot be attached to the fly rod.

4.

Fish must be hooked on the fly in use. If a small fish takes the fly and a larger fish swallows the smaller fish, the catch will be disallowed.

5.

One or more people may assist in gaffing or netting the fish.

6.

The angling and equipment regulations shall apply until the fish is weighed.

10. If a fish escapes before gaffing or netting and is recaptured by any method other than as outlined in the angling rules. 11. When a rod breaks (while the fish is being played) in a manner that reduces its length below minimum dimensions or severely impairs its angling characteristics. 12. When a fish is hooked or entangled on more than one line. 13. Mutilation to the fish, prior to landing or boating the catch, caused by sharks, other fish, mammals, or propellers that remove or penetrate the flesh. (Injuries caused by leader or line, scratches, old healed scars or regeneration deformities are not considered to be disqualifying injuries). Any mutilation on the fish must be shown in a photograph and fully explained in a separate report accompanying the record application.

The following acts will disqualify a catch: 1. Failure to comply with equipment or angling regulations. 2.

The act of persons other than the angler in touching any part of the rod, reel, or line either bodily or with any device during the playing of the fish, or in giving any aid other than that allowed in the rules and regulations. If an obstacle to the passage of the line through the rod guides has to be removed from the line, then the obstacle shall be held and cut free. Under no circumstances should the line be held or touched by anyone other than the angler during this process.

3.

Resting the rod on any part of the boat, or on any other object while playing the fish.

WORLD RECORD REQUIREMENTS Game fish catches can only be considered for world record status if they are caught according to International Angling Rules. Following is information on world record categories, requirements, and procedures for filing claims. An application fee of $40 US for members and $65 US for non-members is required for each claim. All materials submitted become the property of IGFA.

4. TITLE

World Record Categories: GENERAL INFORMATION IGFA maintains world records for both freshwater and saltwater game fishes in line class, tippet class and all-tackle categories. In order to qualify for a record, a catch must be a minimum of 1 pound (.453 kg) in weight and must outweigh the existing record by the required amount or meet the minimum weight requirements, if any, for vacant records. No applications will be accepted for fish caught in hatchery waters or sanctuaries. The catch must not be at variance with any laws or regulations governing the species or the waters in which it was caught. When an additional species of game fish is made eligible for IGFA world records, the effective date will be announced. Fish caught on or after the effective date will be eligible for records. Announcement of an additional species in the World Record Game Fishes book or in other IGFA publications will be considered proper notification in lieu of any other notice. ALL-TACKLE CATEGORY All-tackle world records are kept for the heaviest fish of a species caught by an angler in any line class up to 130 lb (60 kg). Fish caught on lines designed to test over the 130 lb (60 kg) class will not be considered for record claims. All-tackle record claims are considered for all species of fish caught according to IGFA angling rules.

The fish must be considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;trophy-sizedâ&#x20AC;?. A rule of thumb is that the weight must fall within the top half of the estimated maximum weight of the species.

LINE CLASS & FLY ROD CATEGORIES Line class records are kept according to the strength of the line. Fly rod world records are maintained according to tippet strength. Each species recognized for the line class records is also recognized for tippet records. Records are kept in the following line and tippet classes: TIPPET CLASSES Metric

Applications for species not currently included in the IGFA line class and tippet class listings must meet the following criteria:

With the exception of all-tackle claims, line classes are limited for many species.

1.

The fish must represent a valid species with a recognized scientific name.

2.

The fish must be a species commonly fished for with rod and reel in the general area where the catch is made.

3.

The fish must be identifiable based on photos and other supporting data presented with the application.

IGFA tests all line and tippet samples submitted with world record claims in accordance with the metric line class designations, which vary slightly from the standard US customary designations. For example, the US customary equivalent of 4 kilograms is 8.81 pounds. Thus, line designated by the manufacturer as 8 lb class line may test up to 8.81 pounds (4 kg) to qualify for an 8 lb line class NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

Protested applications or disputed existing records will be referred to the IGFA Executive Committee for review. Its decisions will be final. IGFA reserves the right to refuse to consider an application or grant a claim for a record application. All IGFA decisions will be based upon the intent of the regulations Any and all claims and/or disputes regarding the IGFA International Angling Rules shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to such jurisdiction’s conflict of laws principles. In the event that the parties are unable to mutually resolve any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of, in connection with, or in relation to the IGFA International Rules, such dispute, controversy or claim shall be resolved by litigation; in that connection, each of the parties to such dispute hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents to submit itself to the sole and exclusive personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court located within Broward County, Florida (the “Applicable Courts”), waives any objection to the laying of sole and exclusive venue of any such litigation in

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

any of the Applicable Courts, iii. Agrees not to plead or claim in any such court that such litigation brought therein has been brought in an inconvenient forum and agrees not to otherwise attempt to deny or defeat such personal jurisdiction or venue by motion or other request for leave from any such court, and iv. agrees that it will not bring any action, suit, or proceeding in connection with any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the Angling Rules in any court or other tribunal other than any of the Applicable Courts. Nothing in this Section shall prevent enforcement in another forum of any judgment obtained in the Applicable Courts. In the event that it shall become necessary for any party to take action of any type whatsoever to enforce the terms of the IGFA International Angling Rules, the prevailing Party shall be entitled to recover all its costs, including attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses, including all out-of-pocket expenses that are not taxable as costs, incurred in connection with any such action, including any negotiations, mediations, arbitrations, litigation, and appeal. 3.

When a substantial award is specifically offered for a world record catch in any line or tippet class, only a claim for an all-tackle record will be considered.

4.

In some instances, an IGFA officer or member of the International Committee or a deputy from a local IGFA member club may be asked to recheck information supplied on a claim. Such action is not to be regarded as doubt of the formal affidavit, but rather as evidence of the extreme care with which IGFA investigates and maintains its records.

SPECIES IDENTIFICATION 1.

Photographs must be submitted by which positive identification of the exact species can be made. Read the rules on photographs at the end of this section, and refer to the Species Identification section in the World Record Game Fishes book to determine which features must show to identify your fish. Applications without photographs will not be accepted.

2.

If there is the slightest doubt that the fish cannot be properly identified from the photographs and other data submitted, the fish should be examined by an ichthyologist or qualified fishery biologist before a record application is submitted to 2017


IGFA. The scientist’s signature and title (or qualifications) should appear on the IGFA application form or on a separate document confirming the identification of the species. 3.

4.

If a scientist is not available, the fish should be retained in a preserved or frozen condition until a qualified authority can verify the species or until notified by IGFA that the fish need no longer be retained. If no decision can be made from the photographs and the angler can provide no further proof of the identification of the species, the record claim will not be considered.

WITNESSES TO CATCH On all record claims, witnesses to the catch are highly desirable if at all possible. Unwitnessed catches may be disallowed if questions arise regarding their authenticity. It is important that the witnesses can attest to the angler’s compliance with the IGFA International Angling Rules and Equipment Regulations. MINIMUM WEIGHT REQUIREMENTS FOR VACANT RECORDS The minimum acceptance weight for any record catch claim is 1 pound (.453 kg). WEIGHTS NEEDED TO DEFEAT OR TIE EXISTING RECORDS 1.

To replace a record for a fish weighing less than 25 pounds (11.33 kg), the replacement must weigh at least 2 ounces (56.69 gm) more than the existing record.

2.

To replace a record fish weighing 25 pounds (11.33 kg) or more, the replacement must weigh at least one half of 1 percent more than the existing record. Ex: At 100 pounds (45.35 kg) the additional weight required would be 8 ounces (226.7 gm); at 200 pounds (90.71 kg) the additional weight required would be 1 pound (.453kg).

3.

A catch which matches the weight of an existing record or exceeds the weight by less than the amount required to defeat the record will be considered a tie. In case of a tie claim involving more than two catches, weight must be compared with the original record (first fish to be caught). Nothing weighing less than the original record will be considered.

4.

Estimated weights will not be accepted. (See Weighing Requirements) Fractions of ounces or their metric equivalents will not be considered.

2017

TIME LIMIT ON CLAIMS With the exception of all-tackle records only, claims for record fish caught in US continental waters must be received by IGFA within 60 days of the date of catch. Claims for record fish caught in other waters must be received by IGFA within three months of the date of catch. Claims for all-tackle records only are considered for catches made in past years if (1) acceptable photographs are submitted, (2) the weight of the fish can be positively verified, and (3) the method of catch can be substantiated. For catches made in the past, as much information as possible must be submitted on an IGFA world record application form with any additional substantiating data. If an incomplete record claim is submitted, it must be accompanied by an explanation of why certain portions are incomplete. An incomplete claim will be considered for a record if the following conditions are met. 1.

The incomplete claim with explanations of why portions are incomplete must be received by IGFA within the time limits specified above.

2.

Missing data must be due to circumstances beyond the control of the angler making the record claim.

3.

All missing data must be supplied within a period of time considered to be reasonable in view of the particular circumstances.

4.

IGFA’s Executive Committee will make final decisions on incomplete claims.

WEIGHING REQUIREMENTS 1.

All record fish should be weighed on scales that have been checked and certified for accuracy by government agencies or other qualified and accredited organizations. Disinterested witnesses to the weight should be used whenever possible. All scales must be regularly checked for accuracy and certified in accordance with applicable government regulations at least once every twelve months. If at the time of weighing the fish the scale has not been properly certified within twelve months, it should be checked and certified for accuracy as quickly as possible. An official report stating the findings of the inspection prior to any adjustment of the scale must be included with the record application.

2.

The weight of the sling, platform, or rope (if one is used to secure the fish on the scales) must be determined and deducted from the total weight. NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

113


3.

At the time of weighing, the actual tackle used by the angler to catch the fish must be exhibited to the weighmaster and the weight witness.

4.

No estimated weights will be accepted. Fish weighed only at sea or on other bodies of water will not be accepted.

5.

Only weights indicated by the graduations on the scale will be accepted. Visual fractionalizing of these graduations is not allowed. Any weights that fall between two graduations on the scale must be rounded to the lower of the two.

6.

6. IGFA reserves the right to require any scale to be re-certified for accuracy if there are any indications that the scale might not have weighed correctly.

Note: IGFA offers a scale testing service for members only. Preparation of Claims To apply for a world record, the angler must submit a completed IGFA application form, the mandatory length of line and terminal tackle (as described in following) used to catch the fish, and acceptable photographs of the fish, the tackle used to catch the fish, the scale used to weigh the fish, and the angler with the fish. APPLICATION FORM The official IGFA world record application form or a reproduction must be used for record claims. This form may be reproduced as long as all items are included. The angler must fill in the application personally. IGFA also recommends that the angler personally mail the application, line sample or fly leader and photographs. When making any record claim, the angler must indicate the specified strength of the line or tippet used to catch the fish. In the cases of line class and tippet class records, this will place the claim in an IGFA line or tippet class category (see World Record Categories). All lines will be examined by IGFA to verify the specified strength of the line. If the line or tippet over tests its particular category, the application will be considered in the next highest category; if it under tests into a lower line or tippet class category, the application will not be considered for the lower line class. The heaviest line class permitted for both freshwater and saltwater records is 60 kg (130 lb) class. The heaviest tippet class permitted for fly fishing records is 10 kg (20 lb). If the line or tippet over 114

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

tests these maximum strengths, the claim will be disallowed. Extreme care should be exercised in measuring the fish as the measurements are often important for weight verification and scientific studies. See the measurement diagram on the record application to be sure you have measured correctly. The angler is responsible for seeing that the necessary signatures and correct addresses of the boat captain, weighmaster and witnesses are on the application. If an IGFA officer or representative, or an officer or member of an IGFA club is available, he or she should be asked to witness the claim. The name of a boatman, guide, or weighmaster repeated as witness is not acceptable. The angler must appear in person to have his application notarised. In territories where notarization is not possible or customary, the signature of a government commissioner or resident, a member of an embassy, legation or consular staff or an IGFA officer or International Committee member may replace notarization. Any deliberate falsification of an application will disqualify the applicant for any future IGFA world record, and any existing records will be nullified. LINE OR TIPPET SAMPLE All applications for fly fishing records must be accompanied by the lure, the entire tippet, and the entire leader along with one inch of the fly line beyond the attachment to the leader. These components must be intact and connected. All other applications must be accompanied by the entire leader, the double line, and at least 50 feet (15.24 meters) of the single line closest to the double line, leader or hook. All line samples and the leader (if one is used) must be submitted in one piece. If a lure is used with the leader, the leader should be cut at the eye attachment to the lure. Each line sample must be in one piece. It must be submitted in a manner that it can be easily unwound without damage to the line. A recommended method is to take a rectangular piece of stiff cardboard and cut notches in two opposite ends. Secure one end of the line to the cardboard and wind the line around the cardboard through the notched areas. Secure the other end, and write your name and the specified strength of the line on the cardboard. Any line sample submitted that is tangled or cannot be easily unwound will not be accepted. 2017


PHOTOGRAPHIC REQUIREMENTS Photographs showing the full length of the fish, the rod and reel used to make the catch, and the scale used to weigh the fish must accompany each record application. A photograph of the angler with the fish is also required. For species identification, the clearest possible photos should be submitted. This is especially important in the cases of hybrids and fishes that may be confused with similar species. Shark applications should include a photograph of the sharkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teeth, and of the head and back taken from above in addition to the photographs taken from the side. Whether the shark has or does not have a ridge between the dorsal fins should be clearly evident in this photograph.

In all cases, photographs should be taken of the fish in a hanging position and also lying on a flat surface on its side. The fish should be broadside to the camera and no part of the fish should be obscured. The fins must be fully extended and not obscured with the hands, and the jaw or bill clearly shown. Avoid obscuring the keels of sharks and tunas with a tail rope.

It is important that we have clear, publishable photographs of the fish and the angler. If you have action shots of the catch, we would like to see them also.

ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO EQUIPMENT REGULATIONS DOUBLE LINES AND LEADERS

Double lines are measured from the start of the knot, braid, roll or splice making the double to the farthermost end of the knot, splice, snap, swivel or other device used for securing the trace, leader, lure or hook to the double line. For saltwater species the double line shall be limited to 15 feet (4.57 metres) for all line classes up to and including 20 lb (10 kg); and shall be limited to 30 feet (9.14 metres) for line classes over 20 lb (10 kg). For freshwater species the double line on all classes of tackle shall not exceed six feet (1.82 metres).

The leader shall be limited to 15 feet (4.57 metres) for saltwater species in line classes up to 20 lb (10 kg); and 30 feet (9.14 metres) for all classes over 20 lb (10 kg). For freshwater species the leader on all classes of tackle shall be limited to six feet (1.82 metres).

The length of the leader is the overall length including any lure, hook arrangements or other device.

ANGLERS, CREWS, BOAT OWNERS & CHARTER BOAT CAPTAINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RESPONSIBILITIES WHEN THEY COME INTO THE WEIGH STATION 1.

Every angler, crew, boat owner and charter boat captain must make themselves totally familiar with the fishing rules and regulations set down by IGFA , NZSFC and individual clubs and their tournaments.

2.

The weighperson is in charge of the weighstation. Anglers, crew, boat owners and charter boat captains are required to work in with the weighperson with the handling and the presentation for the weighing of fish.

3.

The angler must complete the weigh sheet other than the weight before presenting the fish to the weighperson.

4.

If a fish has any new wounds other than the clean gaffing wound or wounds such as may be inflicted by a propeller or another predator this will disqualify the fish. If this fish is weighed in a mutilated condition it will not qualify for any IGFA, NZSFC, Club or tournament trophies or prizes.

5.

Parties are requested to co-operate with the weighperson to check any relevant equipment related to this catch.

6.

The angler or their representative must be on hand to make sure the scales are zeroed before weighing the fish. Also the angler or representative must be present to verify the weight of the fish when the weighperson has the final weight.

7.

Parties are requested not to get into any consultation over any disagreement that may occur at the weighstation with the weighperson. Any disagreements should be taken to the appropriate person in charge of fishing regulations within the club for them to adjudicate over. When the weighperson is the weighmaster and judge they will then adjudicate on the IGFA and NZSFC fishing rules and regulations, along with any club and tournament rules that may apply.

WEIGHPERSONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RESPONSIBILITIES 1.

The weighstations are the front door of every club. Their procedure and presentation reflect on their club as a whole.

2.

All weighing scales must have a current certification 12 months of the year. There is no given time when there may be a requirement to weigh a world or National record.

3.

All weighpersons must make themselves familiar with the operation of the scales they are using. Makes and brands of scales can and do vary from club to club.

4.

A club must fish under NZSFC and IGFA rules, and regulations as well as their club rules. Weighpersons must make themselves familiar with these rules especially the tackle and species. They will be checking the leaders and the double line and making sure of the line weight and gaffs set down in the IGFA rules as well as species.

5.

6.

118

Weighpersons must check for any new wounds in the fish such as propeller or predator inflections etc. Any one of these injuries must be reported to the appropriate person or persons within the club for them to adjudicate over the legality of the catch. The only injury that is acceptable is the clean gaffing wound or wounds. Weighpersons must have proof of NZSFC club membership before a courtesy weigh can be performed. There may be a club fee to pay before courtesy weighing. A non member will be charged a fee before weighing any fish.. Weighpersons must receive from the angler the

NEW ZEALAND SPORT FISHING COUNCIL INC.

filled in weigh/catch sheet before weighing the fish, to be completed with the weight and their signature verifying the weight after the fish is weighed by the weighperson. 7.

Weighpersons must make sure that the scale is zeroed and witnessed by the angler or their representative before weighing the fish. Also the angler or representative must be present to verify the weight of the fish when the weighperson has the final weight.

8.

All fish must be hung by the tail prior to weighing. For consistency all marlin bills (mouths) must be taped before weighing.

9.

Fish can be weighed by the tail, in a cradle or on a flat platform. The weight of the cradle or tail rope must be deducted from the total weight, or hung from the scales and then zeroed before weighing commences.

10. When weighing the fish other than on a platform, it must be allowed to totally settle to ascertain the correct weight. If the scales have a motion sensor this must be used. 11. Bait fish that are in the throat or the stomach of the fish are included in the weight of the fish. 12. The only weight that is recognised is the first weight of the fish on a recognised weigh station. Any other weight that may be established will not be recognised. 13. All lures and traces where practicable must be removed before weighing. Lures are not included in the weight. 14. Weighpersons must not get into consultation with the angler or the crew if there is any discrepancy with the fish or

2017


8.

Anglers are requested when courtesy weighing to adhere to the individual clubs requirements, procedures and weighing times which may vary from club to club. Anglers must produce their club membership card or proof of membership before the fish can be courtesy weighed. There may be a courtesy weigh fee required by the club performing the courtesy weigh. Visiting anglers who are non members will be charged a fee before weighing the fish. There should be two weigh sheets filled in for courtesy weighs, one for the club doing the courtesy weigh and one for the angler to take back to their own club. This is the angler’s responsibility.

9.

Parties are requested to make themselves familiar with the weighing hours of the club and the procedure required to weigh fish outside of these times.

10. When parties wish to have the tag and release of a fish identified at the weigh station they must adhere to the protocol of the individual club.

fishing equipment. When there is a discrepancy the weighperson should only notify the angler that he or she has to report the problem to the appropriate person or persons in the club for them to adjudicate over. If the weighperson is the judge as well as weighmaster and has to adjudicate over the IGFA & NZSFC fishing rules and regulations, they must make themselves familiar, not only with the fishing rules and regulations, but the acts that will disqualify a catch, along with the situations that will disqualify a catch. All IGFA and NZSFC fishing rules and regulations are in the IGFA and NZSFC year books. 15. Weighpersons must make themselves familiar with the presentation procedure for the identification of tagged and released fish. This may be different from club to club. 16. Weighpersons must make themselves familiar with the courtesy weighing requirements of their club. Two weigh sheets should be filled in, one for the club weighing the fish and one for the angler to take back to their club. (Council’s policy is that all clubs must courtesy weigh for other affiliated clubs when required). 17. Weighpersons must use the IGFA and NZSFC yearbook for species identification for all fish. There are other publications that can be used for the same purposes. 18. All clubs must be a member of IGFA. 19. Each club will notify the NZSFC of their weighpersons each year. 20. Each club should notify its members and the NZSFC of their normal weighing hours and the

11. Weighing of fish can be a joyous occasion with a little celebration going on before you get to the weigh station. Parties must appreciate that weighpersons have a big responsibility and not let their exuberance interfere with the serious procedure of weighing of the fish and the possible checking of the equipment and the fish. 12. The only weight that is recognised is the first weight of the fish on a recognised weigh station. Any other weight that may be established will not be recognised. 13. Tag cards must be checked when handed in. The minimum information required is date, location, species and estimation of size. Other information on the state of the fish’s well-being is desirable. 14. Anglers and crew should co-operate with the Marine Biologists, Scientists and other Government Officials or Organisations in charge of science and research.

procedure required to weigh fish outside of these times. 21. Each club should notify its members and neighbouring clubs of their courtesy weighing requirements. 22. If in doubt on any detail seek assistance.

NOTES FOR EVERYONE Some clubs allow fish to be cut to let the fish bleed before weighing. If the angler is claiming a National or World Record for their catch and the fish has been cut to bleed before weighing, it will be classified as mutilated and will disqualify the fish. Recent wounds on a fish that have occurred while the fish is being angled such as shark bites or propeller wounds or anything else other than clean gaffing automatically disqualifies the fish as a mutilated catch. If a weighperson has a concern over the line weight he must use the club’s line tester to identify the breaking strain. It is in the interest of every club to have their own line tester. The identified weight of a fish is the first time that it is weighed. No other weight that may be identified will be accepted. To avoid spoiled (decayed) fish they should be all weighed on the day of their catch. It is up to the individual clubs whether they make this mandatory or not.

WINNER OF THE OLD TITLE MAN & THE SEA CUP Big fish, small boat!

got close to the school and we were bitt.”

Craig Johnson and Kurt Bennetto had an ‘inkling’ a big Black Marlin was hanging out around the Hen and Chickens’ Coppermine Reef, so hatched a plan to target it.

Upon coming tight to the fish soon after it, showed itself bursting out of the water behind them.

This resulted in a 363.8kg fish weighed at Tutukaka on Waitangi Day, February 6 2016, a capture made all the more significant by the fact it was made by a crew of just two from six-metre trailerboat. “We went out after work during the preceding week to have a shot, but didn’t raise a bite,” Craig says. “We knew a big fish was there, though.” On the Saturday morning they headed to the Hen and Chickens in lumpy conditions, catching kahawai live baits at Tara Reef on the way. When they arrived at the Coppermine on the south-eastern side of the Chicks, several other boats were already there jigging for kingfish among the trevally schools. “Just as we approached one of the schools, there was a big bust-up, so we got the baits out and the lines clipped into the ‘riggers. No sooner had we

It was a pretty impressive sight. They knew they had a scrap on their hands. “On the initial run we chased it hard between two of the boats, who had wound their braid lines up to avoid cutting us off.” “We didn’t have to get on the radio, we were so close we just yelled from boat to boat. The others in the area, while interested spectators gave us plenty of room.” The boys say the fight, after the initial run, was conducted at relatively close quarters, with the fish staying on a short rein within 50-60 metres of the boat most of the time. Having fished together so often, the boys’ actions were instinctive, each one doing the job required. Fishing on 37kg line, they never had huge pressure on the fish, getting the drag up to 15kg at one point. (Part of their preparation involved carefully

marking the drag increments on the Shimano Tiagra 80 reel, so they always knew exactly how much pressure they were exerting on the fish.) “We chased it hard, both in reverse and forward, and almost had a shot at the leader around the hour mark.”

Fortunately, Ronan Coltellaro and crew from Cambridge, were up fishing at the Hen and Chicks over Waitangi Weekend. So after enjoying ringside seats to this fantastic capture, Ronan and his crew volunteered their help getting the fish into the 6 meter Ramcos cockpit for the long, slow trek back to Tutukaka.

When they got another chance 15 minutes later, Kurt hung on, and in Craig’s words ‘got a good stretching’.

News of their amazing effort spread quickly via social media, so by the time they reached the weigh-station a large crowd was in attendance.

After five minutes they got the fish’s head up and Craig sunk the flying gaff deep into the fish’s shoulder, before getting out on the duckboard to get the tail rope on – the fish was theirs.

A great way to celebrate a significant catch that the boys set out to specifically target.

With the fish secured alongside, the next challenge was to get it back to Tutukaka.

“Kurt and I have fished together all our lives. I was there when he caught his first marlin, so it was great he was able to play such an important role in what is a fish of a lifetime for me.” Craig said

HUNTER SCOTT TITLE TOP JUNIOR ANGLER On the 30th of January this year I was lucky enough to catch a 94.6kg Striped Marlin on 15kg line. This fish was a New Zealand record for small fry boys and took me 1hour and 15 minutes to catch. After this catch I was really keen to try and catch a Striped Marlin on 10kg line, but Dad said I would have to tag another first. On the 23rd of April I got to tag an estimated 120kg Striped Marlin. We then set up the 10kg gear to try that on the following trip. It was during the school holidays (28th of April) when my Dad, my Grandparents Keith and Christine Scott, my sister and myself next went fishing. The weather was perfect and we had the people on board to give it a try. We set two 10kg rigs, one on each outrigger, then we had a 24kg and a 37kg rig in close. By lunchtime we had seen nothing other than a few gannets. My Grandad said to me, “With gamefishing expect the unexpected.” Next minute, “Bang!” the outrigger lure gets eaten. A second dorsal appeared behind the closest lure and that gets eaten too. We were hooked up on a double! I was on one on 10, my grandma was on the other.

thought I had a chance. An hour since we hooked up, we had the fish close, jumping just metres away from the boat. The trace was very short so Dad decided to grab the trace with one hand and gaff it with the other. It felt like forever before he was able to finally get the trace as the fish just kept swimming away keeping just out of reach. I had the drag up even more, as high as I could with the light line and finally he managed to get it and THE FISH WAS OURS! We tagged my Grandma a marlin that same afternoon and my sister Lola also caught a Yellowfin that same day too. Lola’s Yellowfin weighed 28.4kgs on 24kg line which is a National Record for small fry girls. My Marlin weighed 133.4kgs on 10kg line which is a National Record for small fry boys, my second marlin NZ record for the season. It was caught on a TLD30 reel which I had won during the Juniors 2 years ago. Thank you for reading my story. Hunter Scott Riverview Primary School, Kerikeri

My fish hadn’t pulled much line out while my Grandmas line was screaming. She had to make her way up to the bow of the boat as we tried to get mine. My fish took to the air jumping with its tail at least 2 metres clear of the water. At this stage the marlin must have realised it was hooked. Line screamed off the little reel like I’ve never quite felt before. My Dad was at the bow of the boat with my Grandma and I was all by myself in the cockpit. Panic set in as I couldn’t do anything but watch the line disappearing fast. Worried the line would break I eased the drag back to one; my Dad had put the pen marks on the reel. My Grandad backed down as hard as he could without wanting to lose too much line for Grandma as our fish were heading in opposite directions. My Grandad has become very deaf with treatment he is having. He couldn’t hear the reel screaming or me yelling at him so I had to use hand signals to let him know if I was losing line and how fast. This made a hard time harder. After around 20 minutes, up at the bow my Grandma’s fish had escaped and we were down to just mine. This made things easier. I increased the drag as we started to get line back; for the first time since we hooked up I felt a little more in control and 2017

TITLEKIWI HIWI THE At the recent AGM in Whangamata, the Minstrel, Mark de Lacy gave an update on the Hiwi the Kiwi program. Hiwi the Kiwi goes fishing is now in its seventh year of delivery and has substantial reach across the country.

If any clubs are interested in funding the delivery of Shows in their region, they need to get in touch with the Minstrel to discuss. This is an excellent opportunity for Clubs to connect with local schools and potentially grow their junior membership. To contact Mark either contact him by email: theminstrel@xtra.co.nz or phone 027 255 5442

Earlier this year the program was delivered to its 1,000th school, Havelock North Primary. Over 330,000 school children have now seen the show, and on average, 50,000 school children get to see a Hiwi the Kiwi goes Fishing Show each year. Many schools are also utilising the online and book resources to reinforce the key messages of Fish for our Future, Boat Safety and Save our Seabirds. Earlier this year Maritime NZ came to the party and funded the delivery of the program to 10 Decile One schools in Counties Manukau. Reaching the low decile schools is difficult, as they find it hard to finance the delivery of the show.
