    This is a freshwater mystery species comp. There is no size limit. Take a clear picture of your catch with the code number clearly visible. Then carefully return your catch to the water. This rules out one species, Carp. THE CODE NUMBER IS 4364.
    The winning fish may be a Native or Introduced species.
    RULES
    1. You must be a TBX member.
    2. You can fish any waterway [fresh].
    3. You must post a photo of your catch clearly showing the CODE NUMBER 4364
    4. You can post as many photos as you like. The more the merrier.
    5. The Judges decision is final.
    6. The fish must be caught on a rod and reel.
    7. The Judge or member of his family are not eligible to participate in the comp.
    8. This is a C&R comp. If you submit a photo of your catch, it is to be returned to the water

    PRIZE $20 CASH

    Any queries in relation to Photographing and Releasing fish. refer to Jims post
    dated 13/1/2018

    EDITED: 6PM 13/1/2018 If the regs are different in other states it will be acceptable even in Victoria for a photo to be taken while the fish is still in the water providing the code number is clearly visible and the fish can be identified.

    So...this is the link that is contained in my post.
    https://vfa.vic.gov.au/recreational...shing-guide/photographing-fish-to-be-released
    The link contains general good practices that should be followed. I should also point out that the link is relevant to Victoria. For instance, catch a Murray cod in South Oz, remove it from the water and you are in big sh!t if caught (unless it has changed).

    Just to clarify Kev, You have a particular freshwater species in mind, the first person who catches one and posts it here, regardless of size wins?

    Also, please accept my first entry...Silver perch! Nothing fake about this!:cool: Would I lie to you? Yes...if I can gain anything!

    That's right Jim it is a certain species, and the first photo posted of that species is the winner. Thank's for pointing out that link is for victoria only. Original Post has been edited.

    Hi Kev
    Just for you information, carp and tilapia eradication also happening up here in Queensland in March, at Wyaralong Dam which is a recent dam addition to South East Queensland and recently opened to fishing. Wyaralong is only a shallow dam and the feral fish seem to love it.

    I'll start official proceedings with a Reddus of Finn.

    Seems these things go between noxious to 'encouraged not to return to the water alive'.

    Nevertheless, I complied with competition rules on this particular occasion.

    An unlikely species up next: the humble Yabby (Cherax destructor).

    Yes, I did catch it with a rod and reel.

    Sounds like fun, but would have to wait until am in a different area. Most waters here have a positive salty flavour. N

    I would like to add a Concrete Clarp to the mix, a very rare species indeed.

    Returned to the water as per competition rules (with a few bullet holes in it).

    There has been 2 queries in relation to releasing carp and Redfin
    Carp were ruled out of the comp before it started. as for Redfin
    A while back I asked a fisheries officer about releasing redfin. I was told Anglers are encouraged not to release Redfin back into the water it is not a regulation in Victoria. [unless things have changed]. Both species have been ruled out of the comp.
