West Coast Whoppers 2010 Rules and Registration

Welcome to West Coast Whoppers


The year long, points based, big fish contest for SoCal kayak anglers targeting yellowtail, white seabass and halibut.

The contest begins January 1st and ends on December 31st, 2010. Anglers may enter the contest at any time during the WCW season.

Entry fee for 2010 is $25 with payouts for top 3 anglers


Rules:

1. All fish must be hooked, fought and landed from a kayak.

2.Fish must be at least TEN pounds to be eligible for submission. The contest is based on the following points system: Base points for a 10 pound fish are:

white seabass 10 points,
yellowtail 20 points, and
halibut 30 points.

Weight above this will count for ONE point per pound added to the base points. This is rounded down so 10.9 is still only 10 pounds. Example: a 20# halibut, 30# yt and 40# wsb will all be worth the same 40 points.

3. 5 bonus points will be added to each submitted fish that is caught on an artificial
lure.

4. Fish caught during the Big Waters Edge/WhiteSeabass Tournament and Steve Moyer Memorial Tournament will be eligible for a 10 point bonus.

5. Submissions will be made on the West Coast Whoppers 2010 message board for all contestants to see. Leaderboards will be updated timely and will be viewable by all competitors.

6.Competitors are allowed upgradeable submissions monthly with midnight of the last day of the month as a deadline, your single highest point value fish is scored.

Submission requirements:

Each angler’s submission must be accompanied by one photo of the angler with the fish, preferably on the kayak.

In addition, for each fish submitted, the weight needs to be supported by photo of the fish on a measuring tape showing its total length in inches. The fish must be weighed on an accurate scale. Reported fish weight will be compared to length to verify accuracy. As an alternative, the angler may submit the fish with weight obtained from the certified fish weigh-in station - OEX or other certified weigh-in stations (Dana Landing, Fisherman's Landing, possibly your local tackle shop with certified scale). When submitting a fish with weight obtain from a certified scale, no tape shot picture is required.


Big Water’s Edge encourages the responsible management of our fisheries. The rules of this contest allow for catch and release
fishing. Please do not keep more than you can eat. For current size and bag limits please visit The California DFG website:

In response to PMs, to clarify rules/point system:

10# is the minimum weight eligible for submission of either (YT, WSB, halibut).

A 10# halibut is worth 30 points + 1 point for each pound over 10,
a 20# yellowtail is worth 30 points + 1 point for each pound over 20,
a 30# wsb is worth 30 points+ 1 point for every pound over 30.

5 bonus points will be added to each submitted fish that is caught on an artificial lure. If fish is caught on dead or live squid or other bait hanging on the artificial lure, it's not eligible for 5 bonus points.

10 point bonus is an option for all submitted fish caught during the Big Waters Edge/WhiteSeabass Tournament and Steve Moyer Memorial Tournament. Participation in the tournament as well as prior registration in WCW is required.

Whopper standard of measures above, you can still weigh in a minimum 10# of each species, the base of 10# is 10 points wsb, 20 points YT and 30 points for halibut, add 1 point per pound to all weights above 10# on all 3 species.

game

on...


I'm hardly a kayak fisherman any more.... but I heard once a kayak fisherman, always a kayak fisherman.

I need more motivation to get my butt on the yak. I'm in - have no high hopes of winning, but I got high hopes of having a good time playing.

So my question is, is it the same top 2 of each species count for the overall? It may be stated but I couldn't find it(?), or are we doing monthly subs again. If this question is redundant I apologize in advance.


And Adi you may not fish off the yak much but the new ride
looks ALOT warmer than my yak!



.....and Grego our Mariachi team is not to be dissed!

Matt, I guess it could be a little clearer, as we do change things up every year.

One fish per month is counted toward your 12 month/ 12 possible submissions.

I might have missed it...

Does the 48 hour rule apply this year? Or can you submit whenever you see fit?

Josh, again a change over last year.

You just have to have our monthly sub in by 11:59 on the last day of the month.

Feel free to ask for ANY clarification on the rules. Happy to respond!

Can you elaborate on this?

Is this considered accurate: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...set=ISO-8859-1

That is a good enough scale, some old K Mart POS spring scale is not.

No WCW prize, but you will be considered for potential membership on TEAM NO FISH
