Shady and Coastal Creeks 16 & 17 March 2024

Times: Start time 6am Saturday 16th March; Lines out 6pm Sunday 17th March.


At the time of writing Shady Camp Barrage is an all-tide launch.

Plan, accordingly, and make sure you take care as the road out to Shady Camp will likely be wet and slippery where road conditions will vary.

Winds are also likely to be up, though with some luck we may see periods of easing winds with movement of lows.

If planning to go further afield plan any rounding of Point Stuart carefully taking into consideration tides, wind and current direction.

Boundaries: Coastal boundaries are as shown. Shady Fresh is also included in the round as far upstream as the normal dry season extent.

Round Card: The Round scorecard will be sent out on Thursday 16th March and will also be on the TEBS website on that day.

Photographing Fish.  Usage of a non-approved measuring board for registering your catch will not be accepted. 

Make sure the mouth of your fish is closed and the score card is visible in the photo.

Resize original images to maximum 5 MB before uploading. Screenshots are not accepted.

*NOTE-We have increased the allowable upload size from 1MB to 5MB

Measuring. Please remember that fish will be sized down to the centimeter. For example, if the fish is between 58.00 to 58.99cm it will be scored at 58cm.

Scoring: Results for Round 2 need to be uploaded by 6pm on Monday 18th March 2023

Please check contact email during the week in case Measure Panel needs to make contact eg photos didn’t upload or too blurry etc.

The results on the web will be provisional until checked. Results will be confirmed by Friday unless there are unforeseen holdups.

Please use the upload facility on the website.  If you do experience any difficulty with uploading your fish to the website, please send an email to Measure Panel Coordinator at
