Rules

1. The qualification for the title of “Trophy Length Species” Masters Award shall be that the member must submit ten (10) of the same eligible Trophy Length species each one equal to or longer than the Trophy Length for that species.

2. Following the attainment of an initial “Trophy Length Species” Master Award, a member may claim a “Trophy Length Species” Master 20 Award by capturing a further ten (10) of the same species. A “Trophy Length Species” Master 30 Award may be claimed with the capture of a further ten (10) of the same species. Similarly, “Trophy Length Species” Master 40, 50, etc Awards may be claimed for the same species.

3. Eligible equipment/tackle as per “Equipment and Regulations – All Divisions (page15 of the ANSA Rulebook). This is a non line class/ weight award that includes “All Tackle” fishing. Line testing and line class are not applicable to these awards. The use of braided line and breakaway line 42 combinations (as defined) are eligible with the qualification that the breakaway line may be standard line ie; non tested.

4. Application forms for “Trophy Length Species” Master Awards are available from each Branch Secretary. After completion they should be checked and forwarded to the Branch Recorder / Masters Keeper who will then forward them onto the ANSA National Masters Keeper. ANSA QLD is compiling your records via the online form.

5. Captures submitted for “Trophy Length Species Masters” Awards cannot be submitted for Line Class Masters or Trophy Length Masters Awards and vice versa.

6. A certificate will be awarded to all who qualify for these awards.

TROPHY LENGTH

1. Definition: The Trophy Length for a species is the length at which an eligible species is deemed to be a capture worthy of recognition. Trophy lengths are determined with regard to the potential growth of the species, its usual habitat and fighting qualities.

2. A capture of an eligible species which is the Trophy Length or longer for that species is deemed a Trophy Fish and eligible for inclusion towards Trophy Length Master Awards. Likewise any fish submitted for a traditional Line Class Master Award will not be eligible for Trophy Length Master Awards and vice versa.

3. A number of benchmark Trophy Lengths are listed in the List of Eligible Species. State Branches may, at their discretion, assign Trophy Lengths to additional eligible species for inclusion in Trophy Length Master Awards. State Branches may also, at their discretion, modify the National Trophy Length for an eligible species to take account of localised variations in species average sizes and abundance. Any changes or additions to Trophy Lengths must be ratified by the ANSA National Committee.

 

MEASURING FISH

1. The measurement of a fish for Trophy Length Masters awards must be performed against a recognised measuring device, such as, but not limited to, builder’s measure or tape, a commercially available “brag mat”, fisheries measuring tape or legal size sticker, with increments no less than 5mm.

2. The acceptability of the measuring device will be at the discretion of the individual Club Recorder or Committee, who may refer to their ANSA Branch or National Committee.

3. Fish are to be measured length overall ie; from the leading edge of the snout to the extreme end of the tail with the fish laying flat – see diagrams on page 12. (Nb. If the tail section is large and cannot be readily aligned with increment marks on the measuring device it is recommended that a straight edge be used to vertically align the tail extremities with the increment marks). In some States it is a requirement that the caudal/fork length also be recorded for scientific data collation. (This is not a National requirement.) 43

4. The measuring of fish must be witnessed by an independent person over the age of fourteen (14) years. Where this is not possible or practical, the angler must submit a digital or print photograph of the capture against a recognised measuring device with the measurement of the fish clearly determinable. Acceptance of photographic evidence will be at the discretion of the relevant Club recorder, who may refer to their State Branch or ANSA National for a ruling.

ANSA QLD will be accepting photographs of fish on measuring mats as evidence, so it is important that you include this in your online submission.
