A few things to remember:
You require one ticket per rod or handline. ( If you  fish with two rods you need two tickets.)
No lines in the water before 8am. Marshal points will have red flags that will go up at 8am to signal fishing starts.
If you catch a weighable kahawai (30cm+) wave down one of the Marshals on quad bikes and he will tag your fish with your name, ticket number and time of capture.  He will then take your fish to the HQ for official weigh in.
Stop fishing at 2.30pm, if you are parked in the reserve area please pack up and move your vehicle ASAP to avoid being locked in.

This website will be updated throughout the day with current leading fish weights. If your fish is obviously too small to get a prize you might want to let it go 🙂
