All Barramundi will be photographed and measured on a reputable Brag Mat to meet QLD legal size. No homemade mats will be accepted. To ascertain that the Barramundi has been caught within the competition time, an official free of charge HookUp sticker can be collected from the merchandise marquee during the event.
Two digital photos, one showing the whole fish, with the head at the start of the measure, the other zoomed in on the tail showing its length. Both photos must display the current free of charge HookUp sticker.
In addition, the competitor may choose to purchase the current year, official Boyne Tannum HookUp Brag Mat (available for purchase at the merchandise marquee during the event) to measure and photograph the Barramundi.
No other Brag Mats, other than the above 2 options will be accepted and at all times the Barramundi photograph must include the official free of charge HookUp sticker (whole fish, head and tail photos).
The winner of the live Barramundi category will be selected as the longest fish.
If the winning Barramundi has been photographed on the current official Boyne Tannum HookUp purchased Brag Mat the prize money paid to the competitor will double (This excludes the Lake Awoonga tagged Barramundi category in Section 2.7 that has a fixed prize value of $5,000).
