TEBS continues to be a fun and friendly but competitive competition. TEBS is an opportunity to make new friends whilst challenging yourself to get a few fish. Help keep up this tradition and please lend a helping hand at the boat ramp as it may be a little hectic on the weekend.

The success of this competition relies on honesty. Fish within the boundaries and only claim your fish and in the designated time frame of 6am Saturday to 6pm Sunday.

You can measure fish on a brag mat or the TEBS or similar measurement sticker. Make sure the mouth of your fish is closed and the score card is visible in the photo. You may place a copy of the weekends NT News next to your fish if you have had difficulty printing the Score card.

The organizers will have the final decision on the measurement of the fish.

You can register your best 5 Barra over and including 50cm. Once you have your 5 fish you can upgrade by dropping off your smallest one. Please observe the local personnel possession limits and other regulations.

There will be a prize for the biggest Threadfin and Jewfish caught on a lure this Round as well.

This year there will be an end of year prize or two for the best photo/s from each Round. There will also be a prize for the best Iron Jack related photo.

Good / high resolution photos of people catching fish, boats on the water, action shots, landscapes, wildlife and people holding fish are important to us to provide to Alex Julius’ NT News column, on our web and Facebook pages and for the end of year NAFA article. If you have taken a few good shots and are happy for them to be used would you please email them to on Monday or by Tuesday night at the latest.

Any short stories are also very useful and help with writing the results of each Round up.

The Round Score Card will be sent out Thursday and will also be available on the website on Thursday.
