7: RESPONSIBILITY OF PAPERWORK: It is the sole responsibility of the entrant to insure that all entry and weigh in paperwork is filled out completely and submitted  

properly to the Captree Bait & Tackle Shop or Captree Boatmen’s Assn office. Shall it be deemed by committee that paperwork was submitted improperly or incompletely, the fish is disqualified from the derby.  Should it be deemed that 2011 Captree Fleet Fluke Derby paperwork had been submitted fraudulently, the entrant and fish is disqualified from the entire derby, and the entry fee is forfeited.

8: FISHING EQUIPMENT: Although entrants may bring multiple rods onboard with them; only one rod may be fished at a time. Entrants fishing more than one rod at a time will (along with their fish) be disqualified for the entire voyage in question. Should such a case occur, the angler’s entry fee is not forfeit and if applicable is still valid for subsequent voyages.

9: WEIGH IN OF FISH: The only official weigh in station is the Captree Bait & Tackle Shop. Along with proper identification, an entrant must weigh in his/ her fish in person within a reasonable time of the vessel docking. . An entrant who weighs in a fish must be accompanied by a representative of the vessel (owner, captain or mate) at the time of weigh in. The vessel representative must have been onboard the vessel at the time the fish was caught, and verify by signature that the presented fish was caught by the entrant. Failure to meet these requirements is an automatic disqualification.

After the weighing of a fish, the stomach content of said fish may be extruded for inspection for determination of fraud. Should evidence exist that there may have been tampering with the stomach content for the purpose of enhancing the weight of the fish, the fish and entrant shall be disqualified from the derby and all fees and prizes are forfeit. The final determination will be ruled upon by a three (3) person panel consisting of Captree Boatmen’s Assn member owners. All rulings are final and non disputable. To avoid conflicts of interest, the three (3) person panel (selected by the owners) shall consist of owners from vessels other than the vessel the entrant sailed when the dispute occurred.

10: FISH & PRIZE ELIGIBILITY: An entrant may submit one fish per trip of eligibility. Should the entrant sail more than 1 trip in an eligible day, he/ she may submit one fish for each trip sailed.

11: DAILY DOCK POOL/ BOAT POOL ELIGIBILITY: Any fish submitted by an eligible entrant for the derby, would also qualify for the “Daily Dock Pool” should both contests have been entered properly and both entry fees paid. It is the sole responsibility of the entrant to check with the vessel’s captain, prior to entering, to determine if the fish is also eligible for the “boat pool”.

12: AWARDING OF PRIZES: It is solely the responsibility of the entrant to find out if he/ she has won a prize. Awarding of prizes will be on Sunday 9/11/11 @6:30 pm after final weigh in at the Captree Bait & Tackle Shop.
