REGULATIONS 1. All fish entered must comply with NJ and Federal laws, regulations and licensing requirements. 2. From the moment a fish strikes or takes bait or lure, the angler must hook and fight the fish without aid from any other person except that another person may grasp the leader, gaff or net the fish. 3.

Official weigh stations are located throughout New Jersey. Go to http://BeachNBoat.com/weigh-in-locations or refer to official Tournament publication to view participating weigh stations. 5.

At the time of weigh-in, before weighing a fish, the angler must present proper identification and provide the weighmaster with a copy of their Tournament registration card as well as full and certified information relating to the catch. 7. Angler and/or weighmaster must complete an official weigh-in registration form in hard copy or online. The angler must sign the hard copy form or check the “I Agree” box online certifying that all information is complete and accurate. Incomplete or incorrect information can result in disqualification. 8. The official weighmaster certifies the species, weight, length and girth of each fish entered and clips the fish’s tail after it has been weighed. If you weighed-in for another tournament that clipped the tail, you must bring a copy of the weigh-in registration from that tournament. 9. The weighmaster enters the qualifying catch into the Beach N Boat database and gives the contestant a duplicate copy of the weigh-in slip. 10. Any inorganic item(s) including, but not limited to, fishing tackle, wire, rocks, and rope found to be attached to a fish or inside a fish’s mouth when a fish is caught shall be removed by the angler prior to weigh-in. The weighmaster has the right to cut open and inspect fish at their discretion. If any inorganic material is not visible to the angler and is discovered when the fish is opened, this material shall be examined by the Tournament Committee and, if deemed to be inside the fish prior to it being caught by the angler weighing it in, the weight of such inorganic item(s) shall be deducted from the official weight of the fish. If, however, the Tournament Committee deems that the inorganic material was intentionally introduced to the fish after that fish was caught and prior to the weighing of that fish, additional action may be taken including, but not limited to, the disqualification of the fish and angler. 11. Take care of your winning fish; no cut or mutilated fish will be accepted. Fish condition will be reviewed by weighmaster. 12. All fish caught remain property of the angler once weighed.
