Competition Rules

All-Ireland Open Cod Championships 2023 fished under IFSA rules.
Fishing times: 16:00–21:00
Each angler must have his/her card marked by the senior angler on his/her right. An angler at the right end peg (highest peg number) of the zone is marked by the senior angler to their left.
Please make sure you fill in your name and peg number on your card when you receive it. To be considered for the largest cod prize you must have its length initialled by the two nearest senior anglers.

When the marker is signing your card at the end of competition he must draw a line under the last fish, write in the number of fish caught and sign his/her name below that line. The marker must also sign the end of the card. He should also record the length of the longest Cod in the space provided on the card.
Biro must be used when filling out the card, pencil is not accepted.

Maximum of 3 hooks allowed, a treble hook counts as 3 hooks, double hook as 2. One rod only to be in use for fishing at any time. Fair Angling methods to be used.

On catching a fish the angler must place the fish in a bucket of fresh sea water until it is recorded. He may cast out again but cannot retrieve that trace until the catch is measured and recorded.

The angler recording the fish is responsible for the release of the fish.

Any fish being kept for culinary use must have its tail cut or marked by the angler recording the card.
Dead fish must not be accepted for measurement. Minimum size is 15 cm. The first 10 undersize fish are recorded on the card.

Fish measured must have its length recorded in centimeters and must be accompanied by the initials of the angler measuring it. Fish are measured down (23.5cm fish is recorded as 23cm). A third angler resolves any disputed fish regarding the length of a fish.

Cards back no later than 45 minutes after lines up
Objections in writing only, no later than 60 minutes after lines up time.

Anglers leaving litter on the beach will be disqualified.
Rays measured snout to tail. Dogfish are 45 length points, with the actual length of the first dogfish caught recorded. Eel<100cm score 35 length points. Eel>=100cm score 95 length points. Weever are counted as undersize and should not be measured.
No salmonids, mackerel, or launce.
Pools: Longest Flat, Longest Round other than Cod, Longest Ray (reserve Tope if no Ray).
Tie Break for Cod Championship is the next longest Cod, if still a tie,the next longest Cod etc, etc.. If still a tie, or no cod are caught, the longest fish of another species (excluding dogfish) will be used as a tie break.
For the match competition, in the event of a tie the greater number of fish (all sizes) will decide, in the event of a second tie the single longest fish will decide, in the event of a third tie the length of the first dogfish caught will decide.
Please treat all fish with respect whilst unhooking and measuring them. Return them to water as soon as possible
